Many bloggers out there don’t actually blog for a living. What I mean is, blogging is not their full-time job. A lot of them are just like you, trying to keep up with a blog as well as life’s other responsibilities. So how do you make time for it all? Start out with these three simple steps with information from blogging resource, Blog Godown. You should soon begin to find it easier to fit blogging into your busy schedule:

1. Determine your best blogging time. If you work eight or more hours a day, your free time is evenings, mornings and weekends. Due to this limitation, it’s essential that you make the most of your free time. If you find yourself to be more of an alert, morning person, set your alarm a little earlier than normal and try blogging before you begin your day. Or maybe your creative juices start flowing when the sun goes down. If so, get your blogging done before or after dinner. The key is consistency. Whatever contribution you can make, big or small, is important.

2. Put away distractions. It’s obvious that usually what stops us from being productive can actually be the Internet itself, as well as other tasks on our mind once we get off work. If you’re ready to take your blog to the next level, you’ll have to learn to put it at the top of your to-do list during some of your free time.

3. Savor your energy.Once you get on a roll with blogging, give yourself a stopping point so the next time you come back to the drawing board, you might still have some of the leftover energy from the post before. Also, resist the temptation to make a post longer than it needs to be. Online readers have short attention spans so blog accordingly.

For all the bloggers out there: what helps keep you blogging despite your busy schedule? Please share! We are always looking for new ways to stay focused and keep our blogging fresh and consistent.
