You’re about to read ten of the very best tips for becoming a more productive blogger; after that, you’re getting back to work using all these great strategies, right?
Sticking to Scheduled Posts
Blogging can be an intensely time-consuming enterprise. It can help to schedule posts so that they can be auto-published. This entails writing a week’s worth of blogs at once, dedicating one day to the task; for the other six days, you’ll be doing the awesome things you blog about.
Getting it Done Early
Before you start loading yourself up with concerns by checking your email or hopping on social media sites, you need to get your most pressing work completed. It doesn’t matter what the task is, you’ll be able to complete it more effectively when you first wake.
Limiting Email Checks
By limiting the number of times you check your email, you can concentrate more effectively on your other tasks. Try checking and responding to mail once in the morning, after important tasks are done, and then check and write responses during the early evening hours.
In order to write at your most effective, it may be necessary to sit down for one solid chunk of time and write three or four blog posts all at once. This usually takes a couple of hours and gives you the opportunity to complete a lot of work at once, while avoiding excessive intrusion on your daily life.
Making a Plan
Having a planner is a good way to keep track of what needs to be done and when. By planning how you’ll use your time, you’re setting goals for yourself with respect to time management. Stick to them and soon, good time management will be a habit.
When you start using a planner, you’ll be setting goals for yourself on getting work done and using your time more wisely. Be conscious of this and use it to your advantage by setting goals for yourself and building confidence by meeting them. Don’t be reticent to re-evaluate and change your goals, if needed.
Keeping Goals Realistic
Evaluate your goals to determine whether they are realistic and attainable, or not. Don’t fall into the trap of comparing your goals to the goals of others, though. Keep your goals realistic for you.
Keeping Work and Rest Separate
Keeping a balance between work time and rest time can be challenging. Having enough time for yourself is as important to reaching your goals as is your hard work in that direction.
Following a Social Media Schedule
Scheduling posts for social media can have as big an effect on your productivity as following a schedule for your blog posts. By scheduling your posts, you’ll save time and energy.
Sticking to Your Writing Schedule
Many bloggers have plans for posts that are still a month or more distant. This gives you plenty of opportunity to ensure diversity in your posts, as well as helping you stay on track for meeting your goals.
