Blogging is time-consuming and stressful. Yes. I know! Been there. Done that. Blogging sometimes is so stressful that all I want is to shut my laptop down and never open it. But to run away is not the solution to the problem. Is it? The real deal is to hold your ground and keep blogging.
So, how do I keep myself sane? How do I manage to juggle between my roles as a mother, wife, daughter, blogger and an online entrepreneur? How do I manage to take some time out to continue my readings?
Well, the answer is simple. I SCHEDULE everything related to blogging and my online business. It means that I run ahead of my time. And it has helped me so much to achieve my weekly and monthly goals in my blogging business.
So, if you are having trouble to keep up with your blogging, do not worry. I am here to help you out.
Blogging should be fun. Blogging should something that you look forward to, not the thing you are running from. And how do I know about it? I used to take stress too. I used to spend hours staring at the blank laptop screen without typing a single word. And as a mother to a toddler, you can imagine how precious a stretch of time is when you get to work with somebody clinging to you. (Don’t get me even started on how guilty I felt after ignoring the blog for days!!)
But all the stress, guilt and running after time went down the drain when I learned this little trick.
Let me just explain it to you without much fuss.
In today’s post, I am offering how do I work every day on my blog, it’s social media and building relationships. I am sharing my daily routine with you so that you can also plan your day to blog accordingly. I have also developed an FREE blogging planner which will help you to get organized and keep blogging even if you have just one hour a day.
How To Keep Blogging Even If You Have Only 1 Hour A Day
Before going into the details, let me explain that I publish one blog post a week. It helps me in staying focused on just one blog post and promoting it throughout the week. I also read a lot of other people’s blogs and comment to build relationships.
Regarding the social media, I schedule everything. I am active on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Plus. Except for Google Plus, I schedule my posts for Pinterest (using Boardbooster), Twitter (Usine Buffer) and Facebook (using their own scheduling settings for Facebook Page and Facebook Groups). I daily interact with any comment and business inquiry which comes through my social media but otherwise, my regular posts are always scheduled.
Scheduling has given me free time to dedicate more to create contents. It has also helped me to run my online business as a writing and blogging coach and help hundreds of people out there.
I have put everything in this detailed weekly blogging plan that I follow. This schedule will help you to manage your blogging without having much stress. This blogging plan will also help you to build the relationship with other bloggers if you follow it religiously. Just dedicate one hour a day and this blogging plan will ease all your burdens which come with blogging. If you need some extra tips, do not forget to download it here. Keep Blogging!
