How To Schedule Your Blog Writing On A Regular Basis

How To Schedule Your Blog Writing On A Regular Basis

Many are the times you have heard people saying they work from home 2 hours a day. This is most common with folks who do blog writing. Personally, I work for even less time and it is all about planning and automating my work online business.

For those of you who are in employment (9-5 job), blogging can be a nice avenue of creating a work online part time business. This will go a long way in supplementing your salary. It may take you some time before you begin getting the big money, but don’t you think it’s worth the wait and in time achieve financial freedom you so crave for?

We all are in need of financial security and today I shall discuss on how you can plan your time and make money by blog writing.

The thought that blog writing is time consuming needs to come out of your mind. All you need to do is come up with a good work schedule. On this article we shall see how within 1 or 2 hours a day you can easily manage your blog writing.

Research and writing: (1 hour a day)

Content is Key – This has been repeated time and time again and there is no way you can escape writing if you want to make money online. That is why you need to allocate the most time when it comes to researching and writing.

Since blogging is about posting content regularly, you can opt to be publishing 2 or 3 articles a week. The others days of the week can be for doing your research. It is so imperative to plan on what you are going to write on your blog. In fact, research is more important than the blog writing.

By planning on what to talk about on your blog, will mean that when you get down to the blog writing you will spend less time. You need to come up with how your article is going to be structured, because if you don’t do that it will take you much longer to write.

You can schedule to have Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays as the days you will be doing your research and structuring. Then set aside Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for blog writing. This means that the content you gather and structure on Monday; will be the article you write about the following day and so on.

The best way to do research is reading a lot. Be up to date with the happenings in your niche by reading other peoples’ blogs. Subscribe to the top bloggers in your niche through RSS feeds or their newsletters. In addition, you can bookmark tops blogs and on the days of doing research you read their new content.

Reading blogs in your niche will help you gain more knowledge and also ensure you get ideas on blog writing. On top of what people are blogging about, on a site like Yahoo Answers you can get questions people in your niche are asking about thus have ideas on articles to write about.

The idea is to know how the top bloggers are writing and get better styles of writing. That should always be your target, because what is the point of blog writing if you cannot be the best in your niche. Make sure you publish the best relevant and insightful content and people will always keep coming back for more.

Writing: Once you have done your groundwork and structuring well, then the most it will take you to write a blog is 45 minutes.

Social Media Marketing: (25 – 30 minutes a day)

I see many online marketers spending the whole day on social networking sites trying to promote their businesses and products. This to me is a waste of time and resources. I would rather you dedicate that time to more planning and researching.

Facebook (15 minutes in a day) – As we speak facebook has become a force to reckon with as far as online marketing is concerned. With thousands of people signing up each day it is absolutely important that every blog writer to have an account on facebook.

Before I talked about automation and with the tools available on the net you can update your facebook wall without necessarily opening your account. Personally, I use Networked blogs to update my status wall on facebook.

This tells you that I spend like 0 minutes on facebook, but I usually go to my account to respond to my messages and people that comment on my posts. This takes me like 10 minutes at most. It is always good to respond to your messages since social media marketing is all but building relationships and your online brand.

If you have a fun page, then you need to add another 5 minutes to update your wall, start discussions and respond to comments.

Twitter (5 minutes in a day) – Some people will not agree with me but I find twitter very easy to mange. Twitter is said to be the fastest growing social media site. So do not assume I do not have a twitter account. In fact, anyone blogging for money MUST have a Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and of late a Google Plus account.

blog writingWith Networked Blogs, I’m able to link my blog to my twitter account. This in turn leaves me with all the time to concentrate on my research and blog writing.

Since my social media network followers are mostly from the USA and Europe and we are in different time zones, I schedule by blog posts to be published when they are online. This means that my tweets and wall status are updated when am comfortably sleeping. Talk of blog writing automation.

The 5 minutes I allocate to respond to the individual messages. This will ensure I build my online presence and further boost my online brand name.

E-marketers that spend a lot of time on twitter are those that seek to follow and unfollow people. But this can be manged automatically with TweeterAdder. With this tool you will be able to:

– Tweet relevant content

– Follow new followers

– Follow people in your niche

– Unfollow people who are not following you back

– Tweet links to your blog

– Tweet your content to your Facebook Wall.

LinkedIn (10 Minutes in a week) – I know this may be different for others depending on where your target audience spend most of their time. As for me I rarely visit my LinkedIn account but since I have synchronized it to my twitter account, my LinkedIn activities are updated daily with my tweets.

The time I spend on LinkedIn is for accepting requests and responding to my private messages.

I hope now you see just how easy it is to manage your blog writing and at the same time update your social networking accounts. This will not only help you get referral traffic but also increase your backlinks for SEO value or juice.

Miscellaneous activities: Blogging involves other activities like article marketing, Email Marketing, Video Marketing, social bookmarking or any other thing you may be involved in to help promote your blog.

Once in a week I am called to do presentations in relation to my work online blog which helps me in offline marketing. I know of other bloggers who organize online contests or conduct interviews. Since these are activities that you do once in a while; with good planning you can execute them with ease.

If you have noticed something about this post is that I have written more content about research and blog writing. As for other activities there is really much to talk about. This goes to show just how critical CONTENT is in regards to blogging. With rich content, making money blogging will be a like a walk in the park.

From the above online working schedule you can see that blog writing is easy to plan, manage and execute. Give the things that count more priority and blogging for money will be fun even as you work from home online.
