Welcome to the Daily Spark. Short daily blogs with musings, experiences, tips, links or general knowledge to help #IgniteYourSpark.
Welcome, welcome to our first ever Daily Spark. This will be a daily journal, so to speak, from the world of SparkHub. We will bring to you in-house and guest blogs that cover a wide range of topics, tips, tricks, daily experiences or just a thought-provoking idea to help #IgniteYourSpark.
Today’s Spark is brought to you by SparkHub founder and chief igniter, Sara.
Today, I am going to share with you my inspiration for the Daily Spark and why I think releasing a blog every day is an absolute necessity to moving forward with this new venture. I’ve set myself quite the challenge, I realise, but what’s life without a little challenge.
So, why a daily blog? Well it all stemmed from this AMAZING video interview I watched from Marie Forleo (one of my go-to online gurus and general Spark igniter).
She’s chatting to the inimitable Seth Godin (another digi-guru worth following) about his own journey from the beginnings of the world wide web to his, well, mastery of it now. One of his “top 5 career decisions that he ever made” was starting a blog and publishing daily. “Even if no one read it, I would blog every day…if day after day, week after week you leave this trail behind of thoughtful examination of your world, you can’t help but get better at whatever it is you seek to do.”.
That sentence just hit me as absolute perfection. So, I am here, with the Daily Spark to
1. impart any of my learnings, wanderings, musings and findings throughout my day that may help improve yours in some way and…
2. to challenge myself to better myself in whatever way I can.
So that’s it, my first Daily Spark to you is – try blogging every day. As Seth says, if you’re not ready to put yourself out there then publish under a different name. But if you think one thing you come across in your day could help improve someone else’s, then you owe it to the world to share it with us 🙂
Worried you’ll run out of ideas? Again, to paraphrase the wonderful Mr. Godin – he writes as he speaks and he is yet to come across a single person with “talkers-block”.
