Guard your blogging time to succeed online.
Never waste this precious commodity.
Every successful blogger I know guards their time ruthlessly, using their energy effectively. As I promote my eBook:
Bloggers routinely ask me how I find time to be prolific. I figure, how do I NOT find the time? I make time to blog. Point blank.
I want to share a few tips to help you use your blogging time effectively.
1: Make Your Reason Why Fun and Freeing
Why do you blog? Make this reason fun and freeing. Never waste blogging time. As a rule, time-wasters have weak reasons why they blog. If you hold a weak intent, distractions pull your attention away from blogging at every turn. But strong urges for fun and freedom put you on blogging tasks for every working hour of every day. Know why. Tie the reason for fun and freedom. Allow this energy to dominate your mind. Never waste blogging time again.
2: Hang with Serious Bloggers
My blogging buddies do not let me slide when it comes to how I spend my time. Blogging buddies do not need to hold me accountable. I just follow their lead because these folks are serious, committed bloggers who never play around. Hang out with serious bloggers. Be influenced by their example. I just walked around Brooklyn for 3 hours. Vacation time. Instantly, I saw my serious blogging buddies get down to work the split second I hopped online, scanning Facebook. How could I ever slack? I surround myself only with top bloggers who do not waste time. Naturally, I take on their qualities, being brutally efficient with my time. You become whoever you hang out with, blogging-wise. Hang with serious bloggers. Use time effectively.
3: Invest in Resources
Buy the eBook I shared above. Invest money in resources to access time-saving tips. Investing in eBooks and courses spark your creativity and appeals to your imagination. I just wrote a post about how I gained 54,000 backlinks while pitching only 2 people. Basically, those 54,000 backlinks flowed to Blogging From Paradise because I am ridiculously effective and efficient with my time. Think; I pitched only 2 bloggers and built over halfway to 100,000 backlinks. Are you serious? Yep; I am good like that, with time. You better believe I pack 10 rock-solid, effective, proven time-saving tips into the eBook. I know how to save time. Buy the eBook. Read it. Follow the tips. Save time too, by learning from a pro’s pro in that department.
4: Blog on the Clock
I only allow for about 20-25 minutes to write and submit guest posts. Work expands to fill the time allotted for it. Time wasters give themselves way too much time to get stuff done. Time effective bloggers give themselves little time to get stuff done. Never force yourself to do things quickly. But do give yourself just enough time to get the job done seamlessly, peacefully and gracefully.
Time is life. How you choose to spend your blogging time indicates how you succeed or fail as a blogger. Use time effectively. Follow these tips to stop wasting time. At the end of the day, just spend all your blogging time creating and connecting generously. Success will flow your way.
