    Good information. I like what you said about keeping going when you are in the zone. That is really useful for me and I can sit down and just go through it and bang out a few posts in a few hours.

      Glad to hear you got something from it. It really helps to pump out a bunch of posts at a time. The hardest part is forcing yourself to write for awhile since it’s easy to get distracted.

    Hey, thanks for your help! I particularly liked your “link love” expression! I have a couple of draft, very unfinished, posts but normally delete these if I get bored with the idea or change my mind but now I can see why it’s a good idea to keep these for a later date. Also, the keeping writing bit when you’re in the zone is good advice too! I would probably tend to just be content at one good post, whereas I may as well see if I have 2 or more in me and if I do it’s a bonus!

    Thanks for some great advice!
