Consider your blogging to be part of your writing life. It is.
Blogging will enhance your entire writing career. I’ve been blogging long enough to know that. Every writer I’ve ever encouraged to blog has said the same thing: “I should have started blogging years ago.”
That said, beware of the possibility of exhaustion. Relax. Your blog will grow as you do. It’s not a race. You don’t need to blog every day, unless you want to. Aim for an easy schedule: blog once a week. That gives you around 50 posts a year, and that’s fine.
