A blank screen is pretty daunting. On-Demand Creativity isn’t easy or fun for most. However it isn’t an insurmountable challenge. In fact, I believe most people are fantastic blog writers. The problem is getting started. Let’s see what we can do about that.
The answer to this question is the difference between a forgotten blog or quick and sustained success. Since this is the 2nd most asked question I get (here’s the first) I’ll give you a quick glimpse at a strategy that works every time.

We’re going to have fun. But in the meantime – here’s the #1 question people are asking -
