Just like many of you out there, I found myself publishing less and less over the last couple of years on my WordPress site. Not because I had nothing to share, but because I set the bar too high. Failing before I started, so to say.
This is how I fixed it: I added an extra Custom Post Type called Notes. Notes sound smaller like a Blog Post doesn’t it? Exactly.
Notes, or whatever you want to call them, lower the barrier. Short form, quick learnings, small How-To’s, they all go into Notes for me now.
But how to fix an stale blog? Because, yeah, that old last published date was annoying, so I included the Notes Custom Post Type into my regular feed. Problem solved.
When you now visit my blog, you’ll see it contains notes and blog posts. Glad I’m back in the flow with publishing thanks to this small hack.
Let me know if you’d like to see the code for all of this. I’d be happy to share it if you need it.
