What’s the perfect job? How about a job where you are your unique boss, you set your personal hours, work right from home, never have to deal with unreasonable deadlines and get to do something you adore doing? Sound good? Well that’s the job description of a blog owner. That, however , is the not the whole story! There are extremely, very few bloggers who have not more than that to do but work on their blog and even fewer that have a blog that provides a reliable source of income so blogging is, for most, a second or even a third job.
There are two basic types of bloggers, the casual blogger and the serious blogger.
The casual tumblr may have a fundamentally well balanced life and a blog that is primarily a hobby. The casual blogger will start writing a post, act on it for a while and then end to get some other things done till he or she feels like writing once again. If a finished post will not get many comments, that’s OK; the post portrayed just what the casual blog owner wanted to say and it’s 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 views to be a job — an occupation that may be competing with other essential elements of life such as a most important job, a family, a cultural life and adequate recovery. The serious blogger is fully commited (almost to the point associated with an obsession) to maintaining his / her blog and feels costly essential element of daily life. The blogger feels dejected if perhaps any post sits for the blog for twenty-four hours or so without generating a comment or if the blog’s hit counter does not signup a certain number of visitors every day. That kind of commitment to writing a blog may take a big hunk of energy out of the day and can very easily create some serious disputes between blogging and the associated with life — to avoid this kind of, the serious blogger needs to be structured and efficient.
Time management for the blogger! Anyone who feels the fact that day is too short has to understand and implement the basic principle of time management: setting priorities. Some things are definitely more important than other things sometimes important things may be left unfastened unless you are controlling your program and not having random events control you. You need to place priorities and live by them.
Produce a priority list! To begin setting priorities, make a list of everything you must get done — everything which includes things you’ve committed to performing, things you want to do, things you understand you should do and stuff that you really don’t want to do but are on your mind. Be honest and put almost everything on the list — take a few hours or more to put it together if you need that much period, it will be time well put in because you are about to get organized.
Essential: You will be using and modifying this list every day therefore create the list using a few program that will allow you to maneuver list items around, add items, remove items and save the list. Categorize! Right now carefully consider each item on the list and put each you into one of the following five categories.
Must get it done today
Must get it done immediately
Nice you need to do 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 location to the proper category. As the must do items are accomplished and moved off the list, a number of the nice-to-do items may be changed up, but only if their particular priorities can honestly end up being changed.
Too many must-do things! If the list of items in the two Need to get it done… categories is frustrating, reconsider each item’s importance and re-prioritize if you can, in the event not select the items that you really don’t have to do yourself, stuff like fix-it projects, business messages or calls, business letters, adwapau.org editing and proofreading jobs, etc . — some of these things may be able to be performed just as well by someone else. Get a friend, family member, co-worker or a freelancer to do it for you.
