On May 26, 2016, I started a blogging streak on my other page My 1-2-3 Cents. For more than two years I was diligent and posted a new blog either there or here on the Kevin Hunsblogger site. Over the summer though, I started working a part-time job and tweaked my streak to include ‘content creation’, including my podcast, YouTube channel and Facebook page.
Things were going well until my trip late last week to Las Vegas. I didn’t prepare enough before leaving and on Saturday, Nov. 10 the streak came to an end. Sure I had my laptop with me and I could have come up with something to write about or share via social media. But I was on vacation. I wanted to enjoy the moments on the Strip, Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon, so I decided to end the streak.
However, while on the trip, the streak restarted too. As of Monday, Nov. 12 I’m back at it, creating content on a daily basis and sharing it. I’m not going to sweat the small stuff. That’s not to say promoting my brand is a small task but I know that even when I can’t put out a new blog, video or Facebook Live post people are still consuming my content.
I’m curious how other content creators and branding specialists handle these types of situations. I’ve felt there’s too much pressure (self-induced of course) when it comes to starting a streak. By the way, my running streak is still going and I plan to keep moving with that until January when I reach day 1,000.
I'm a former TV news guy turned marketing manager. I like to blog, podcast and watch pro wrestling.
