I've always struggled to blog consistently. And in May I just posted 1 (yes: one) blog post. And it's not like I didn't have things to post about. I've always had a whole backlog of drafts, recordings, etc. So I set my goal for June: post every weekday. And I can write with pride that I managed to pull that off. And I keep posting. Check my archives. Here's how I did it (one step/post at a time):
My blog is the hub of everything that I do.
That's why I didn't just focus on original content but also links to my articles on other blogs. I actually divided my blog posts to 6 categories and each of them has a different symbol:
✔ long blog post or Newsletter
☀ announcement - of new issue of Michael Sliwinski Magazine
★ short blog post (like this one) written on my iPhone 6 Plus
☆ link to a blog post written somewhere else, like Nozbe blog
► new episode of my Productive! Show
▷ new episode of The Podcast
Next up: regular exercise. Like every day.
I'm a triathlete and I am exercising pretty regularly but I have recently let it slip a little so now it's time to go back to my old routine of doing an exercise a day (run, bike ride, trx, swim...) - today I woke up earlier and did a 10km run so I feel already better about myself.
And yes, I will keep blogging regularly here and sending you an email about it every two weeks, if you want that is, of course. And you do want it, right? If you do want me to email you, take my free book :-)
Question: What is it that you do consistently?

One of the main goals this year for me is to make this blog my main platform for publishing my productivity-related content for you. Given that now I'm the CEO of two companies (Nozbe and Remag) and still the editor in chief of Productive! Magazine, it's not like I have more time... but I do have more to say and I want to serve you - my readers - better. And I want to communicate with you and be in touch with you better. That's why as of today I'm introducing three new exciting changes to my blog... and they all start with an "S", ssso here goes:
The short version:
- My entire web site will now be served to you through encrypted SSL connection.
- I'm shortening my domain from "MichaelSliwinski.com" to just "Sliwinski.com"
- And I'm introducing a new type of posts, marked with a "★" star.
Why all these changes? Read on for more details:

When I moved my blog from old "MichaelNozbe.com" domain to this one, I decided to actually create two blogs - this one... and a Link-blog at Links.MichaelSliwinski.com in order to be able o post links to the things that might interest you on my own platform instead of using apps like "Buffer" or "Tumblr". After three months of this experiment I feel like experimenting even more :-)
The first three guys run very successful link-blogs - I usually read their blogs more for their comments and opinions than for the links they post to. Yes, I do click on the links very often or add them to my "Read-it-later" app but their comment is what counts. I like it and I'm tempted to try the same... On the other hand the other three guys run very successful blogs with original content and I want to be able to post as frequently and as thoughtful as they do... what to do then?
