If you’re going to focus your boundary buildings in any area of your blogging for biz attempts, these are the three prime boundary making real estate spots.
Boundary #1: Make sure you protect your time when you are creating content.
Pay attention to when your peak creative times are at and guard them like the mama bear you know you have within you. Sometimes it helps if you actually growl.
And know too your peak creative prime time. The important bit is ensuring you’re creating just as much content as you’re consuming.
Boundary #2: You want to protect your psychic air space.
When I was pregnant, I was really careful to adhere to Ina May Gaskin’s advice to surround yourself only with positive birth stories. So, just like you’re birthing your blog to biz situation here, surround yourself only with the yay-sayers and poo-poo the nay-sayers.
Another way to surround yourself with uplifting inspirational muses is to choose a muse. So, if you can really follow her or his story and just really aspire to perhaps lean on what they’re blog to biz business model is or even hire them as a mentor or coach. Just keep believing that it is indeed possible and to embrace what seems to be working for them.
Boundary #2: Protect your email list like the mama bear that you are.
Many of you out there are mamas, so you can always tap into that mama bear energy. If you can just imagine you’re at the playground and some kid pushes your kid off the seesaw, tap into that energy and redirect it towards this beautiful email list of followers and subscribers that you are hopefully building up. When you do have some offerings to announce, you have some ears and some hearts that these offerings will land on.
Use those boundary making muscles and really protect this list. There’s going to be lots of opportunities, I’m sure, as you get bigger and bigger to be participating in summits and online conferences that you have to promise that you will really promote it to your list.
Be very discretionary here and make sure that if you do sign up for such things that it?s in alignment with your sweet list?s interests and will offer them tons of values. Only do them once in a while and for the rest of the time, just really shower them with lots of value and gratitude and don’t be shy about what your own offerings might be. It is there to help them and that will be your mama bear way of licking them clean, offering them that massage of, “I’m here to help you birth… whatever it is that they came to you to find that extra support in their own lives.
There you go! The three prime real estate areas for you to be building your boundary making muscles to make your blog a biz success.
