time How To Make Time For Blogging

Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and you feel like you haven’t got enough time to produce a proper post. If you find yourself facing that particular set of circumstances you can choose to handle it in a number of ways:

  1. Stop blogging until you find free time to write.
  2. Find guest posters.
  3. Run old evergreen blog posts.
  4. Create a list post out of old posts and ask your readers to hang on just a bit longer for new content.

I’ll let you guess which one(s) I have chosen to use this week. icon wink How To Make Time For Blogging

    I have started to introduce guest posts in order to make time for blogging. But, I’m thinking that I should find some old posts in the archives and integrate them into new posts.

    I am dealing with this issue at this very moment, Jack. My coach, instructor and advisers all say the same thing. For a debut author, that book must be my first priority. I had grand plans to up my blogging frequency but I need a completed book to talk about first. It all must take a second seat to that. I will blog when I have something to say (and the time to say it). . Thanks for bringing up this very important topic.

    At times, I’m sure the sole reason I have only averaged 2 posts a month for the last 5 years is my belief that every post needs to be a perfectly worded, typo free 500-1000 words, not to be published until I am convinced it is pristine.

    My last post was shorter, written and edited in a hour. I need more of those. But the suggestions you have are great, as well. Thanks, Jack!

      Hi Joe,

      I know that feeling. There are moments where I look at some of the posts here and I cringe because they suck, but the thing is if I only published the ones I loved very few would make it.

      There is no right or wrong way to do this, I just know that I need to hit publish frequently because that is how I keep the pencil sharp and work on improving my skills.
