I’ve been feeling blocked in my side hustle. As y’all know, I’m a writer and in addition to my day job, I freelance on the side. I love words, and the writing I craft in my spare time is much different from the writing I deliver (if any) for my 9-to-5 projects.
I thought enrolling in an online business course would help me get over the hump of inaction. I’ve been stuck at the second module that gives strategies to build an audience of loyal readers and future clients. Part of the ‘homework’ for that module was blogger outreach. I was supposed to get in touch with bloggers to ask them their advice and to pitch them to guest post.
I couldn’t pitch.
I had no ideas! Which, is odd, because I ALWAYS have some sort of hair-brained idea about pretty much any topic. But for this ‘homework assignment,’ nothing.
