Secret of regular blogging

A portfolio manager told me his most powerful tip for blogging on a regular schedule.

“I speak my thoughts into Dragon NaturallySpeaking.”

This speech recognition software transcribes his words, so he need not type his first draft. This is a great time saver.

I thought of this investment manager’s comment when I read “Reliable Dictation, Down to a ‘T’,” David Pogue’s enthusiastic review in The New York Times of Nuance’s Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11. Of course, Dragon NaturallySpeaking has been updated since that review 10 years ago, and it also has many more competitors.

The bottom line: If dictation helps you to write more regularly or quickly, use it.
