5 Ways You Can Save Time When Blogging

Great advice from Hugh on saving time on blogging and, for me the most important advice of all, on not feeling guilty about not keeping up with reading and commenting on every blog you follow.

Do you ever find yourself running out of time when blogging?

It’s something that used to happen to me a lot. Shortly after getting out of bed, I’d sit down in front of the computer and, before I knew it, the time had flown past! With the sun setting, I’d feel as if I hadn’t really achieved anything.

Make no mistake about it, blogging can be very time-consuming. Your work-in-progress will look as if it’s never going to get finished, your laundry basket is overflowing, the house is a mess, and family and friends will start wondering who you are because you seldom join in anymore.

Here are five tips that I implemented to save me time when blogging (and which stopped blogging from taking over my entire life).

      • I was just about to reply telling you where the link is when you found it! I’m struggling at the moment and I know it’s daft. No one is forcing me to read every post by every blogger I follow and if I want to write new posts as well as work on the Goldfish memoir then I have to cut back somewhere – and learn not to feel guilty about it.

        • No need to worry about my posts, Mary. Life has to come first, and I never take anything about blogging personally. Some of my most frequent commenters from six months ago have just stopped completely. But I still see their comments on other blogs, so maybe they just got bored with mine? Not an issue at all, just part of the great world of blogging.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing my recent post, Mary.

    Please do take some time out for yourself and not feel guilty about not being able to blog the way you used to. I’ve taken a few blogging breaks and they have always helped me. If anybody does mind because you haven’t visited their blog and liked and left any comments, then just unfollow them. They are really not worth worrying about. Fortunately, I don’t think there are many like that.

    Oh, and when I came back from my blogging breaks, the people I most hoped would still be there, were. 😀

    Take good care of yourself.
