How to Be Productive as a Blogger is a round-up of the best mantras to do in order to be a boss blogger.
Blogging is becoming more and more popular as a viable form of income. You will see new blogs pop up on a daily basis with people wanting to share their thoughts and opinions.
The blogging community is strong and everyone supports each other, however, if you want to be successful you still need to take care of your productivity levels as an individual.
Being a full-time blogger can be stressful and at times it can also serve as the greatest distraction from your full potential. It can be extremely easy to get stuck in a rut, especially if you haven’t done everything in your power to be as productive as possible.
The Best Tips on How to Be Productive as a Blogger
Let’s have a look at some of the things you can do to be productive as a blogger:
Pitch, Pitch, Pitch!
Although at times you make get companies and people approaching you because they want you to work with them but the main way you are going to get business and collaborations is to pitch yourself and to do it often.
You should work on your pitch and it’s definitely advisable to further your skills with this by taking a few courses online or by reaching out to other bloggers with experience. Scout out all the relevant email address for the right people that you want to work with and then send them your pitch.
Explain in detail what you can offer them but also include what you want in return. Often the key to a successful pitch is explaining exactly what you can do for them and why they should work with you. Expect to follow up questions and expect the need to barter at times.
Make Sure You Have The Tools You Need
It’s a common mistake to think that all you need is a laptop and you’re sorted. Yes, this is part of it and having a decent laptop goes a long way with productivity but you also need to think about other tools that will help you.
Do you have the right software such as what you find at templafy.com? Do you need a good camera to take pictures such as travel or outfit pictures? Do you need a space to be able to hold meetings through skype? There are many others to consider, it’s a good idea to do some research online in order to equip yourself properly.
It can be far too easy as a blogger to just ‘wing it’ and forget that you still need to have some sort of a routine. Time can easily slip away from you and that’s not good for productivity, especially when you’ve put a huge effort into securing collaborations and paid blog work.
Creating yourself a schedule and still working to a semi-regular work routine should help you to maximise your productivity potential. The great things about working as a blogger are the flexibility to work when you want and set your own hours but don’t forget to pencil in some time for lunch and regular breaks away from the screen. Self-care is important to keep you productive so make sure you take care of yourself on your schedule too.
