When it comes to blogging time management, a new season of life can upset any well-planned schedule. For many, getting a new job, having a baby, participating in summer activities, starting school or countless other life changes means huge adjustments to blogging time allotted.
I believe it was Brené Brown who said, "Social media is like gas – it expands to fill whatever space you give it."
My advice is, when the space is smaller, make it work harder.
If you find yourself in a season that allows you less time to devote to blogging (or you want to be more productive in general), do this:
- Ask yourself, "If nothing else, what is the one thing I want this blog to do for me (ex. make an income, help me connect, market a product or service, etc.)?"
- Write it down and keep it in front of you. Post it on the wall in front of your workspace if you need to.
- Then, every time you sit down to blog, ask yourself, "Is what I'm doing right now helping me get closer to my main goal?"
- If not, do something that does.
