What’s the perfect job? How about a job where you are your own boss, you set your have 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 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 significant 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 blog owner and the serious blogger.
The casual blogger may have a quite simply 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 stop to get some other things done right up until he or she feels like writing once again. If a finished post would not get many comments, that is certainly OK; the post stated 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 — a task that may be competing with other essential elements of life such as a key job, a family, a cultural life and adequate relax. The serious blogger is determined (almost to the point of the obsession) to maintaining their blog and feels costly essential element of daily life. The blogger feels dejected if perhaps any post sits over 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 running a blog may take a big hunk of their time 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 organized and efficient.
Time management for the serious blogger! Anyone who feels the fact that the day is too short needs to understand and implement the basic principle of time management: environment priorities. Some things are obviously more important than other things however, many important things may be left unfastened unless you are controlling your agenda and not having random incidents control you. You need to set priorities and live by them.
Generate a priority list! To begin environment priorities, make a list of everything it is advisable to get done — everything including things you’ve committed to carrying out, things you want to do, things you know you should do and stuff 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 put in because you are about to acquire organized.
Essential: You will be using and modifying this list every day hence create the list using a lot of program that will allow you to complete list items around, add items, remove items and save the list. Categorize! Nowadays 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 now
Nice to do and might be beneficial
Nice to do but 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 add it in a proper location to the proper category. As the must do items are accomplished and moved off the list, some of the nice-to-do items may be transported up, but only if their particular priorities can honestly become changed.
Excessive must-do things! If the set of items in the two Need to get it done… categories is frustrating, reconsider each item’s importance and re-prioritize if you can, if not select the items that you probably don’t have to do yourself, stuff like fix-it projects, business phone calls, business letters, www.sonnora.de 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 maybe a freelancer to do it for you.
