How to Become a More Productive Blogger

When it comes to being a successful blogger, there are a slew of issues that might occur.

We have so much to do, and we are often scrambling with a variety of projects (especially freelancers), and it’s easy to become distracted. If you work from home, that adds to the difficulties we already face with additional distractions like is the house clean, how long do we have before the kids get home, or how can we organize our office to be more productive.

We’re all fighting to find a balance in our hectic workdays frequently struggling with all of the tasks that need done in our work and personal lives.

Here are some tips to get you started:

Schedule Your Blog Articles

Choose a frequency that is most convenient for you.

It goes without saying that the more blog entries you produce, the more traffic you’ll receive.

According to HubSpot, businesses who publish 16 or more articles per month receive 3.5 times more traffic than businesses that publish 1-4 times each month.

You don’t want to burn out and lose your productivity.

To determine a frequency, answer the following questions:

  • Can you maintain this routine on a regular basis?
  • Can you continue to produce high-quality content at this pace?
  • Will you be able to keep up with this schedule?

According to professional writers, the best time to blog is between 8 and 11 a.m. on Mondays for page views. On Saturdays between 8 and 11 a.m., blog for the greatest engagement.

Don’t worry about the day you post as long as your articles are timely, interesting, and written in a style that your audience enjoys.

Create an Outline or a Mind Map

Have you ever started a blog article with one idea and ended up with another? It happens on a regular basis!  The final idea isn’t always better than the original.

It’s even more perplexing when ideas don’t seem to go together.

To avoid this, start by mind-mapping your thoughts with your precise message or reader’s aim in mind.

Once you have created your mind-map or outline, you can begin writing. One of the best ways to begin is by adding a couple of sentences under each header. Then, go back and flesh everything out. If you haven never done this before, it can be a bit ‘different.’ And, it not for everyone, but give it a shot. See what you think. Did it help?

Block Out Social Media During Writing Time

Remember the last time you spent laughing at memes on Instagram and watching crazy videos on TikTok?

How much time did you waste? How much time goes by watching simple videos or looking through your Facebook feed?

A few hours? You could have finished your last blog post for the week during that time.

Everyone seems to adore social media, but it’s quite the distraction. And, it’s one that can absolutely kill your productivity.

If you’re someone who is on social media on a regular basis, try to carve out special times for it. For example, dedicate writing from 7:00 AM-10:00 AM, then give yourself a 15-minute window where you’re able to take a break and look at the latest news, videos, funny memes, or whatever you’d like to spend your little break doing to clear your mind.

Don’t Underestimate the Power of a Break

This is an underappreciated solution.

After you’ve taken a break or relaxed, you’re at your most productive point.

So many bloggers have given up due to burnout.

  • They chose a frequency that they couldn’t handle.
  • They were concerned that their writing was inadequate.
  • They were so preoccupied with typing that they neglected their physical well-being.

That isn’t good for you or your blogs. Take a break. Keep your physical and mental health in check.

We hope this helped! Happy writing!
