What’s the perfect job? How about a job where you are your personal boss, you set your unique hours, work right from home, never have to deal with unreasonable deadlines and get to do something you like doing? Sound good? Well that’s the job description of a tumblr. That, however , is the not really the whole story! There are very, very few bloggers who have not more than that to do but work on their very own blog and even fewer who may have a blog that provides a reliable source of income so blogging is definitely, for most, a second or even a third job.
There are two basic types of bloggers, the casual blog owner 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 begin writing a post, work at it for a while and then quit to get some other things done till he or she feels like writing once again. If a finished post wouldn’t get many comments, that is definitely OK; the post indicated just what the casual blog owner 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 blog owner has a blog that he or she looks at to be a job — job that may be competing with other essential 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 her or his blog and feels it is an essential element of daily life. Crucial blogger feels dejected if perhaps 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 blogging and site-building may take a big hunk of energy out of the day and can without difficulty create some serious disputes between blogging and the associated with life — to avoid this, the serious blogger needs to be arranged and efficient.
Time management for crucial blogger! Anyone who feels that day is too short must understand and implement the standard principle of time management: setting priorities. Some things are certainly more important than other things however, many important things may be left unfastened unless you are controlling your agenda and not having random situations control you. You need to established priorities and live by simply them.
Generate a priority list! To begin environment priorities, make a list of everything you have to get done — everything including things you’ve committed to undertaking, things you want to do, things you find out you should do and points 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 put in because you are about to get organized.
Significant: You will be using and modifying this list every day thus create the list using some program that will allow you to focus list items around, add items, remove items and save the list. Categorize! 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 now
Nice to perform and might be beneficial
Nice to do however, not really necessary
Now you have a decent priority list. Start every day with this list and every time you feel aware of a new task put it in a proper spot 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 shifted up, but only if the priorities can honestly be changed.
A lot of must-do things! If the list of items in the two Must get it done… categories is mind-boggling, reconsider each item’s importance and re-prioritize if you can, any time not select the items that you really don’t have to do yourself, items like fix-it projects, business calls, business letters, www.jqwo.com editing and proofreading jobs, etc . — some of these things may be able to be done just as well by someone else. Look for a friend, family member, co-worker or a freelancer to do it for you.
