What’s the perfect job? What about a job where you are your very own boss, you set your individual hours, work right from house, 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 nothing else to do but work on their very own blog and even fewer who definitely have a blog that provides a good source of income so blogging is, for most, a second or even a third job.
You will discover two basic types of bloggers, the casual blog owner and the serious blogger.
The casual blogger may have a essentially well balanced life and a blog that is primarily a spare time activity. The casual blogger begins writing a post, act on it for a while and then stop to get some other things done till he or she feels like writing again. If a finished post will not get many comments, gowns OK; the post depicted just what the casual tumblr wanted to say and is considered out there if anyone is interested.
The serious blogger’s situation is quite different from the casual blogger’s. The serious blogger has a blog that he or she views to be a job — a task that may be competing with other important elements of life such as a major job, a family, a sociable life and adequate leftovers. The serious blogger is fully commited (almost to the point associated with an obsession) to maintaining their blog and feels costly essential element of daily life. The blogger feels dejected in cases where any post sits around the blog for twenty-four hours or so without generating a comment or if the blog’s hit counter does not sign-up a certain number of visitors every day. That kind of commitment to blog may take a big hunk of time out of the day and can conveniently create some serious clashes between blogging and the rest of life — to avoid this, the serious blogger needs to be prepared and efficient.
Time management for the blogger! Anyone who feels the day is too short has to understand and implement the basic principle of time management: setting up priorities. Some things are obviously more important than other things sometimes important things may be left undone unless you are controlling your agenda and not having random events control you. You need to collection priorities and live by them.
Produce a priority list! To begin setting up priorities, make a list of everything it is advisable to get done — everything including things you’ve committed to undertaking, things you want to do, things you know you should do and stuff that you really don’t want to do but are on your mind. Be honest and put all sorts of things on the list — take a couple 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 obtain organized.
Significant: You will be using and adjusting this list every day thus create the list using a few program that will allow you to progress list items around, add items, remove items and save the list. Categorize! Today carefully consider each item on the list and put each one into one of the following five categories.
Must get it done today
Must get it done recently
Nice to accomplish and might be beneficial
Nice to do but 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 destination 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 very own priorities can honestly be changed.
Lots of must-do things! If the list of items in the two Must get it done… categories is difficult, reconsider each item’s importance and re-prioritize if you can, in the event not select the items that you undoubtedly don’t have to do yourself, things like fix-it projects, business calls, business letters, www.drroof.com.my editing and proofreading jobs, etc . — some of these things may be able to be achieved just as well by someone else. Locate a friend, family member, co-worker or maybe a freelancer to do it for you.
