4 Reasons To Blog Without An Internet Connection
Not everyone is a great blogger.
In fact, blogging either comes naturally to you or it doesn’t.
Like all writing.
…and if it doesn’t come naturally to you, that doesn’t mean you can’t learn it. In fact, if you’re not blogging in your online business; you’re missing out on a whole list of benefits (from traffic generation to personal development).
That’s why I created this blogging system, to make it easy for anyone to blog daily. So if blogging doesn’t come naturally to you it just means it’s going to take you a while to really grasp and master the process.
Here’s the secret though; blogging without an Internet connection.
The biggest most fundamental reason why people suck at blogging is because of a lack of creativity and too many distractions. Kill the distractions, and you’ll get more creative and find more inspiration.
Here are 4 reasons why you should blog without an Internet connection:
You’re an entrepreneur now, you’re no longer confined to a single work location. Why would you want to blog from your small cramped office when you could be outside, on the beach, in a park or even a cafe?
For this reason alone, it makes sense to blog without an Internet connection, so you can get out and explore the place you live in.
You ever wonder why office workers in cubicles get crap all done during the day? The reason why most office works are unproductive? It’s because their environment offers no mental stimulation of inspiration.
Your brain gets stimulated by new environments, simple concept. Positive environmental stimulation causes inspiration. Breaking away from your usual Internet connected location will make you a lot more creative.
Changing your scenery gives you a broader view of the world and will result in many new ideas that wouldn’t have come to you in your apartment, house or office.
3. Kills Distractions
Ok, so being in your local Starbucks isn’t exactly not distracting, it’s quite the opposite. But it’s a different kind of distraction. When you’re connected to the Internet, you feel a constant urge to check for notifications.
Instant Notifications are the digital killer of productivity.
You constantly feel the need to check your Facebook, Gmail, Twitter and whatever other networks you’re connected to. Just to check out what other people are doing and saying.
You do not need an Internet connection to write a blog post. Think you need to search Google for a few references or ideas? A quick Google search often results in a pattern of opening Gmail, followed by Facebook and before you know it you’re talking to your buddies on Skype.
You do not need other websites and programs open when blogging, it will kill your productivity. Blogging without a connection in a place where you cannot connect to the Internet will force you to adapt and get more creative.
When you’re outside, you never know what opportunities might arise. Perhaps you’ll bump into an old friend, you might meet someone new. Maybe you’ll find a new business prospect.
The point is, being stuck in doors all day connected to the Internet won’t do you any favors.
Ultimately, if you disconnect from the Internet when you’re blogging or doing any other kind of creative writing tasks; you will get A LOT more done in a short period of time. Try it out, I’m doing it right now and I’ve cranked out this blog post in about 20 minutes.
