Blogging Tips Related To Time Management

Started a blog yet? There are actually millions and millions of blogs created by now but most of these bloggers just set them up and then literally forget about them over time. Some just abandon their blogs even only after a sprinkle of entries. This is to say that these bloggers merely have no clear blogging objectives. They simply started a blog but perhaps because they thought they could not earn from it anyway, they just stopped.

Even if you understand the concept that there is not money in short term blogging, the key, really, is time management and organization. A blogger should be organized so that he or she can consistently churn up great blog entries. Below are tips related to blogging time management:

Establish a file for blog ideas

Create a file in your computer where you will write down all your blog ideas. Whenever you come across any possible topic or idea for your blog, include it immediately in that file. This is also good since all of the ideas can just be found in one place and you can easily access it.

Should you have queries about any of your blogging topics (e.g. those that begin with the basic W’s – who, what, why, where and when – plus the H – how), take note of those and then when you already have access to your file, compare them with your established questions. You may be inspired to come up with topics.

You can also try reading other people’s blogs. With possibly billions of blogs out there, you have endless choices of whose blog to read. If you think a certain blog’s arguments and facts weren’t complete, you could write about your own additional data about that particular topic in your blog. Also, if you think you have something to say about a particular blog’s topic, you may want to discuss it in your own blog.

Moreover, if you don’t have a laptop and you don’t easily get access to a computer, you could just bring along a notebook wherein you can write down possible topics and ideas that come to mind.

Write as many posts as possible at a time

These posts need not be published right away nor should they be perfectly written. Just so you could easily save your ideas and topics, write posts and then save them as drafts in the meantime. When you have more time in your hands, you could just go back and polish your entries before you finally publish them for the whole world to read.

Record some of your blog posts

This is especially true for business bloggers who seem to always be on the go. If you have a handy digital recorder or if, for instance, your cellular phone has a voice recorder function, you could just record your thoughts and ideas. Talk about them freely and then when you already have the time to sit and blog about your ideas, you could just play back your audio file.

Value the opinions of other bloggers

The blogging community is somehow “close knit” – bloggers, more often than not, help out other bloggers. If you need help, you could solicit the opinions of other bloggers, especially those that touch the same topics as you do. You could ask them to leave comments and feedback. Moreover, if there are times when you can’t blog (perhaps because of a long business trip), you could ask one of your blogger friends to fill in your shoes in the meantime.
