3. Just Start
Before starting this website, I only had 4 article ideas to write about, sure I know little about Google SEO, content writing, deep research, etc. I only had experience and a different perspective. If I waited to have 50 article ideas and waited for the time I become a professional content writer and in-depth researcher, I would end up writing nothing because of my excuses. Instead, I wrote the first four blog posts, which were good but weren’t arranged in a good way (I will rate it 3/10).
4. Take a picture of yourself
Months ahead from where you started, you will admire how far you’ve changed and evolved. This will motivate you.
