Publish Your Article When it is Finished and Not Before

 blogging tips, better blogging, professional blogging, seo blogging coach Publishing  your “editorial masterpiece” for all the world to see can be quite harry, scary, and ultimately exhilarating. When creative juices are  flowing and you’re on that exciting creative roll we all know and love, that is the best time to actually pull in the reins, believe it or not, and allow your creativity to flourish unrestricted and gestate in private without public rules and regulations.

Why? Because your creativity is all over the place and that’s the best kind of creativity that will deliver the best results. That being said, if you push the envelope by publishing your amazing content prematurely, a.k.a., before the finishing touches, it will appear amateur at best. Creativity must gestate and settle before shooting it out for all the world to see.

And yes, I get very excited about what’s on the edgy-cusp and newsworthy for your geo-targeted area. However,  jumping the gun, especially without carefully thinking through your game plan can be very detrimental.

Shooting Your Unfinished Article Out Through Your RSS Feed

Even worse than that, you are shooting your raw, unfinished article out through your RSS feed to all your email subscribers. OUCH – we’ve probably all done it at least once or twice and yes, it is trés embarrassing. Ugh!
