AFK

For you bloggers who are fully employed at jobs that require full attention all day: how do you budget time for writing?

Since starting at my latest position, I’ve been unable to peruse the internet in the way I was at previous employments that was so conducive to my blogging. I don’t want to give up the blog completely, though I’ve seriously considered that option. It’s just too much a part of my long-term goals. At the same time, posting every other week isn’t the way to encourage readership.

So how do you do it?

  1. Hi

    First of all I have to tell you it's really hard to know where to put the comment in your new format. I will get the hang of it. šŸ™‚

    I think that in your day, you should decide that a certain time is set aside to either do your research or for writing. You may not get to blog every day, but you will be working towards the blog.

    Usually blogs have abilities to do "drafts" so you can even start one and finish later, again, closer to your goal of blogging.

    So, that time is yours for research, blogging your research, or reading others' blogs as well.

    I also had a small notebook with me wherever I went, and I would whip out pencil and paper to jot the quote, notes, or the names of something I would need to look up later, this proved to be some of the blogs I was most proud of.

    I hope this helps.

  2. Thanks for the tips Barbara.

    I see what you mean about it being non-intuitive how to get to the main post view for commenting. I've had issues with people not being clear who'd written what on the blog and so set it up the way it is now. I'll have to reassess this and see if there isn't a better way.
