Build the frame first
Without the frame, one can easily lose sight of how all the pieces fit together. It is probably the most common-sense thing to do at first. You cannot afford to just dive in, and start trying to put things together.
If you don’t have a frame in front of you, things could look vague and nebulous. A structure helps you understand the dimensions and the importance of each piece.
The same rule applies in blogging. You cannot produce good results in the very beginning. You will have to work really hard and wait for days or even weeks to reach the destination.
A blog needs a solid foundation just like the initial frame of the puzzle. After getting a good design, you start putting in things one by one.
Look at the big picture
When solving a puzzle, it is important to have the big picture in mind. A lot of pieces that we ignore initially could actually prove very useful. Similarly in blogging, no one can afford to ignore little elements. If you feel that there is no point of SEO, you cannot be more wrong. To solve the blogging puzzle, don’t ignore even a little piece.
Be patient and Focus
Just like a 1000-piece puzzle, blogging needs dedication, patience and commitment. If you don’t get a good result through one particular approach, come up with a new one.
Instead of focussing only on one area, get a new set of pieces and start working on an entirely unrelated section.
