What’s the perfect job? Think about a job where you are your very own boss, you set your private hours, work right from residence, never have to deal with unreasonable deadlines and get to do something you love doing? Sound good? Well that’s the job description of a blog owner. That, however , is the not really the whole story! There are very, very few bloggers who have nothing else to do but work on all their blog and even fewer who experience a blog that provides a great source of income so blogging is normally, 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 fundamentally well balanced life and a blog that is primarily a spare time activity. The casual blogger will begin writing a post, act on it for a while and then quit to get some other things done until he or she feels like writing once again. If a finished post isn’t going to get many comments, that is definitely 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 blogger has a blog that he or she takes into account to be a job — a position that may be competing with other important elements of life such as a most important job, a family, a interpersonal life and adequate relax. The serious blogger is dedicated (almost to the point of an obsession) to maintaining his or her blog and feels costly essential element of daily life. The blogger feels dejected in the event that any post sits at the blog for twenty-four hours or so without generating a comment or if the blog’s hit counter does not enroll a certain number of visitors every day. That kind of commitment to blogs may take a big hunk of their time out of the day and can without difficulty create some serious conflicts between blogging and the rest of life — to avoid this, the serious blogger needs to be sorted out and efficient.
Time management for the blogger! Anyone who feels that day is too short should understand and implement the fundamental principle of time management: environment priorities. Some things are certainly more important than other things sometimes important things may be left unfastened unless you are controlling your routine and not having random happenings 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 must get done — everything which include things you’ve committed to doing, things you want to do, things you find out you should do and issues that you really don’t want to do but are on your mind. Be honest and put every thing on the list — take a few hours or more to put it together if you need that much time, it will be time well spent because you are about to acquire organized.
Essential: You will be using and changing this list every day so create the list using some program that will allow you to complete list items around, add items, remove items and save the list. Categorize! Today carefully consider each item on the list and put each a single into one of the following five categories.
Must get it done today
Must get it done this week
Nice for you to do and might be beneficial
Nice to do but not really necessary
You now have a decent priority list. Start every day with this kind of list and every time you feel aware of a new task add it in a proper place 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 went up, but only if their particular priorities can honestly be changed.
A lot of must-do things! If the set of items in the two Need to get it done… categories is tremendous, reconsider each item’s importance and re-prioritize if you can, in the event that not select the items that you actually don’t have to do yourself, things such as fix-it projects, business names, business letters, eatatjoels.com 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.
