Are You Quitting On Me Private Pyle? Never Ever Give Up

Stanley Kubrick died in 1999 shortly after completing his final film “Eyes Wide Shut”.

Most of the films he made were nominated for Oscars, “The Shining”, “2001: A Space Odyssey” and of course my favourite from where the headline for this post came from “Full Metal Jacket” just a few from amongst many excellent films.

In over 50 years as a movie director, Kubrick continually broke new cinematic ground and was one of the most influential and innovative of filmmakers.

Quitting Is For Wimps

A couple of years ago I watched a documentary called “Stanley Kubrick’s Boxes”. Made in 2008 a Journalist was invited to come over to Kubrick's widow's house and examine over 1000 huge boxes that Kubrick had stored away. There was so much material here that it took up half the property.

Each box contained memorabilia from film sets, fan letters, set shots, scripts and other related equipment. Instead of the paltry 45-minute documentary that we eventually saw, you could have made an episode about each box, about how he meticulously researched every prop and every set shot was thoroughly prepared and imaginatively lighted.

Kubrick was a perfectionist you see. That’s why his films took so long to make. “The Shining” was five years in the making.

If Kubrick Made Websites What Do You Think They Would Look Like?

They would certainly not be half baked, and half finished like the bridge above. What! You didn't notice!

Over the past few days, I’ve talked about why you should create a blog, who should write it and how to come up with blog content ideas. To wrap up this series on blogging for the moment, today we are going to look at the big picture.

One blog post by itself is just a small part of the overall story. Many blog posts make a readable resource for your audience and several years worth become a body of work that can become an “Authority” in your field of work.

Once you have that amount of work, you can divide it up into sections and make it into a book, or several books. The content can be rewritten to fit into context with new projects and ideas.

 Writing A Blog Is A Marathon. It Is Not A Sprint

Too many people get started without thinking about how much time and effort they are going to need to make it a success. You don’t need to be obsessive, like Kubrick, but you do need patience and persistence to see the job through to fruition.

The more you write, the better you get at it, and subsequently, the more you write. It’s a self-perpetuating method. Not doing the work is the biggest crime here.

It takes years of hard work to produce something special, something that is worthwhile for your visitors and a resource that is valued by your community. That is what you are aiming for. You are not just hoping to put up a few posts to get a bit of traffic and call it job done. At least I hope you’re not.

Be methodical and cover your topics thoroughly, always make a note of new blogging ideas as you come across them and stick to a rigid publishing schedule. Having a deadline does wonders for your creative juices.

Many times you will be tempted to give up because you do not see the results you expected. Never Give Up. Nothing can be gained by it.
