Creating more blog content in less time is something that every blogger is looking to do. There are some things that you can put into play that can allow you to do just that. You don’t have to follow all of the information provided here but even if you follow some of it, you may be astonished at what you can accomplish in less time.
By spending less time on your blogging this will allow you to spend more time on other things that you have been neglecting or would like to pursue. This could include that website that you cannot find the time to get going or spending more time with your family. Whatever it is, time is precious and you don’t understand how much until you find yourself with less of it.
Although you may like to have your information detailed and informative, some of us bloggers can be carried away with checking stats. Depending on the content of your blog or what you’re writing about, you can find yourself checking numbers and stats excessively. Analyzing these numbers every 15 to 30 minutes can take quite a bit of your time. This is wasting time that could be spent on blogging. Sometimes leaving out this information, changing the format or content of the blog or even estimating may be a more valuable use of your blogging time.
Staying focused can be difficult sometimes. If you are working on a blogging project begin it and finish it at the same sitting. Don’t allow things to distract you. If you know you need to get the kiddies from daycare in the next 20 minutes, now may not be the best time to start your blog post. We can even distract ourselves. Do you think it’s a great idea for production to sit in front of the television to write your content when your favorite television show happens to be on?
You can also become distracted by going to the internet to check into something and find yourself surfing pages, writing notes for other blogging ideas, etc. this can be a definite don’t do. Have everything you need for your posting in hand before beginning so that you don’t need to go to the internet and be even tempted to accidently browse. Having your information directly in front of you prevents rereading or reformatting because of distractions.
Take breaks. Work for an hour and take a good 15 minute break. Stretch and walk around to get the blood flowing and even those brain synapses restarted. Take those fifteen minutes to load the dishwasher and then get back to work. Writing for 2 to 3 hours straight has been demonstrated to not produce as much productive content as working for no more than an hour and taking a good 15 minute, at the most 30 minute break.
I don’t want to appear to be a writer with obsessive compulsive behavior or a perfectionist but I do find it difficult to follow all of the advice outlined here. However, when I do, my blog writing and even articles are much better and I don’t feel as mentally drained as a result of blogging or even article writing.
Great advice, try it.
