Set Aside Time To blog — It’s MandatoryNisa Nandifa
What’s the perfect job? What about a job where you are your have boss, you set your private hours, work right from home, never have to deal with unreasonable deadlines and get to do something you love doing? Sound good? Well option job description of a blogger. That, however , is the not really the whole story! There are extremely, very few bloggers who have nothing else to do but work on the blog and even fewer who definitely have a blog that provides a great source of income so blogging is, for most, a second or even a third job.
You will find two basic types of bloggers, the casual blogger and the serious blogger.
The casual blog owner may have a essentially well balanced life and a blog that is primarily a spare time activity. The casual blogger will start writing a post, work at it for a while and then prevent to get some other things done until he or she feels like writing again. If a finished post would not get many comments, absolutely OK; the post expressed just what the casual tumblr wanted to say and is out there if anyone is interested.
The serious blogger’s situation is quite different from the casual blogger’s. The serious blog owner has a blog that he or she thinks to be a job — organization that may be competing with other crucial elements of life such as a key job, a family, a interpersonal life and adequate relax. The serious blogger is determined (almost to the point of obsession) to maintaining her or his blog and feels costly essential element of daily life. The serious blogger feels dejected in the event that any post sits to the blog for twenty-four several hours or so without generating a comment or if the blog’s hit counter does not register a certain number of visitors every day. That kind of commitment to blogging may take a big hunk of the time out of the day and can conveniently create some serious issues between blogging and the rest of life — to avoid this kind of, the serious blogger needs to be organized and efficient.
Time management for the blogger! Anyone who feels the fact that day is too short should understand and implement the usual principle of time management: setting up priorities. Some things are clearly more important than other things sometimes important things may be left undone unless you are controlling your schedule and not having random incidents control you. You need to placed priorities and live simply by them.
Make a priority list! To begin setting priorities, make a list of everything you need to get done — everything which include things you’ve committed to doing, things you want to do, things you find out you should do and facts that you really don’t want to do tend to be on your mind. Be honest and put every thing on the list — take a couple hours or more to put this together if you need that much time, it will be time well spent because you are about to get organized.
Significant: You will be using and adjusting this list every day therefore create the list using some program that will allow you to focus list items around, put items, remove items and save the list. Categorize! Right now carefully consider each item on the list and put each an individual into one of the following five categories.
Must get it done today
Must get it done immediately
Nice to complete and might be beneficial
Nice to do although not really necessary
You now have a decent priority list. Start every day with this list and every time you become aware of a new task put it in a proper place to the proper category. As the must do items are accomplished and moved off the list, a few of the nice-to-do items may be migrated up, but only if their priorities can honestly end up being changed.
Just too many must-do things! If the list of items in the two Must get it done… categories is frustrating, reconsider each item’s importance and re-prioritize if you can, in cases where not select the items that you probably don’t have to do yourself, things like fix-it projects, business names, business letters, www.icoas2013.org editing and proofreading jobs, etc . — some of these things may be able to be achieved just as well by someone else. Get a friend, family member, co-worker or a freelancer to do it for you.
