We always hear stories about the people who eventually succeeded as bloggers, but what about the ones who didn’t?
What of those thousands of people who heard that you earn make money online, tried it, and eventually failed? Why aren’t those stories shared and, more importantly, why don’t we discuss the reasons these people failed?
There are few reasons for their failure which I have already discussed in one of my previous blog post “10 Reasons Why Some Blogs Fail“. The most common reasons that forced them to give up are – Lack of Time and Lack of Topics to blog on.
In this post I will try to help you out from the “lack of time” problem by giving some of my ideas on how you can organize your precious time for blogging.
1) Concentrate On Important Stuff
You must stay focused on important stuff on your website. You have to set priority and work accordingly. If you feel writing article is more important than moderating comments, then first finish writing the article, then if you have time left you can carry on with comment moderation.
Don’t concentrate more on less important stuffs like doing Search Engine Optimization, customizing your blog theme etc.
2) Don’t Read More
Bloggers do lot of research on a topic which they are going to publish. When you are running out of time, you should not go for topic which requires lot of research. Try to post something that you can write it yourself without any research or with less research. Which will save time for you.
So choose a day when you will have more time, to write long article which needs more research.
3) Make Your Moderation Work Easy
You can use all sort of spam protection plugins to make your moderation work easier. My suggestion for you is to use Block Spam By Math and Akismet. As mentioned in the first point, don’t spend lot of time for moderating comments or guest posts. You can do your moderation work in your spare time.
4) Automate Some Process
When you use to publicize your article in all social media, it will take a some time for you to share your link on all social media sites that you use. So, there are some plugins or services which will help you to automate all these works for you.
As soon as your publish a post in your blog, your article’s link will be published to all social media automatically. So you need not worry about sharing links in all social media, which will save your time.

5) Write Sharp and Short Articles
It’s a good idea to go for short articles that are very sharp or straight to the point that you want to give your readers. Writing short articles will consume less time. Some bloggers use to write their own stories in each of their blog post(so called blogposts that are mixed up with experience of the writer), which is a good idea for full time bloggers, but not so good of part time bloggers.
6) Plan When You are Free
Avoid thinking about topic after sitting in front of your PC to blog, instead think about a topic when you are free but away from your PC. So that you can start writing your blog post as soon as you sit on your PC to blog. Otherwise you have to think sitting in front of your PC wasting your article writing time.
If you have any better time management ideas, feel free to share it through your comments. I could have missed few important points, because I’m not an expert in time management
