QQ: Do you, and if you do … how much?
Okay, how much planning goes into your blog on a daily, weekly and monthly basis? How much time do you spend inside the virtual world that is your blog?
Are you addicted to your blog – in so far determined to make it work – to be successful, or is it only and just a hobby and so detailed planning, strategy, patterns and routines are not your thing, and you mostly get up, log in and throw stuff into and at it for x amount of time during the day?
Me, well at my own concession l am quite addicted to my writing and my inserting of posts, therefore l am addicted to blogging. I do have a long range strategy, as l do wish to make money online with a business so l need all the practice l can get [that’s my excuse anyway]. Panic not, l am not going to turn into a salesman in my blog, that’s not my scene, hence why l don’t have annoying adverts in my blog space.
As to how long?
Well l guess l am online throughout the day for roughly 19 hours, on a range of different tasks be this research, writing and other activities with writing and or blogging.
So how much of that is dedicated to my blog? Mm, well that’s the bigger question isn’t it?
I have a strategy for running and maintaining my blog, it is time based. I do a lot of PDated posts for the next day, and that time frame is around 12 hours coverage from midnight 55 to midday 55.
I use the time to plan ahead for the weeks worth of blogging. I have an Excel spreadsheet which l use, not to its fullest capacity but it keeps me up to speed on all the series l run and when they were last posted to.
So l think in all fairness with everything taken into consideration, my ‘work time’ if you wish as whilst blogging is NOT a full time job, it is a very active hobby leading to a much fuller online presence with a business in the future, luckily l enjoy it, so even if it was a full time it wouldn’t bother me. The moment you don’t enjoy your work, is the moment you should stop. However that aside my working time in blog is from about 10am – 10pm, although l have now managed to secure 24 hour coverage on my time zones with fresh content, reblogs and shares.
So actively on the blog and offline is roughly about 15 hours.
But that is just me, how about you?
