When most people are asked about what they wish they had more of, they would say, “I wish I had more time to do the things I need to.” While time management can benefit people in many ways, tips to help in the management of your valuable blog posting:
Have Your Posts Preplanned: By planning ahead for your blog posts, you will not have to rush around trying to come up with topics. When you have some extra time, plan your blogs for the week. All you have to do then is publish them at the right intervals. This will save you time as well as stress, when you have the blogs you want all ready to go. When you have extra time, you can write out your first drafts, then go back later and revise if necessary.
Have Your Blogs Scheduled: Using WordPress, you can write and publish blogs for several days, and have them posted on the days that you choose. This frees up lots of time for you, since you will not have to write, post, and publish each individual blog. You can use some of your extra time for networking, marketing, sleeping, or living your life. Scheduling posts also helps when you have to be away from a computer for a period of time when your blogs need to be posted. You will not have to run around crazily, stressing because you can’t publish your blog.
Apologize: If you find that you absolutely cannot post on a day that you usually do, explain to your followers why, and apologize to them. They will not hold it against you. If it becomes a habit, however, they may begin to lose faith in you, and seek their knowledge elsewhere. People know that things happen; after all, you have a life just like they do.
Commenting: To free up some time, choose a certain time of the week to do all of your blog commenting. Being able to post comments on blogs that are relevant to yours at the same time, can free up time spent worrying about the ones you haven’t gotten to yet. You would be surprised at how much time can be saved doing things in blocks of time, rather than sporadically.
Getting your time management skills honed to perfection takes time, but can make your life less stressful and more productive. By scheduling your blog posts ahead of time, as well as all things related to your blog, you can have more time to do all of the other things in life.
