My Daily Blog To-Do List

I figured I could use a little more organization in my blogging life, so here is my daily blog tasks right now.  I’m sure I am forgetting something, so I’ll probably have an update post in a couple of weeks.

  1. Check and answer email in the morning before I leave for work.
  2. Make sure my posts for the day look okay on all sites.
  3. Read and comment as necessary on Yakezie forums.
  4. Answer comments on my posts.
  5. Read and comment on other blogs.
  6. Write at least one post for one of my sites or for staff writing.
  7. Check and anwer email in the evening after work.
  8. Check Twitter and Facebook.
  9. Retweet other people’s posts.
  10. Keep up the Yakezie forums and my email account while chilling and answer or comment as necessary.

That’s all I’m coming up with right now.  I need to be more efficient about my tasks above because I am spending 5-8 hours a day to keep up with it all.  I’ll let you know if I come up with any way to spend less time on it all.

What does your blogging day look like?  If you don’t have a blog, did you know the bloggers you read spend so much time keeping up with it all?

  • I easily spend 10 hrs a day on blogging too, but most of it is taken by my posts :( they are usually very long and takes a LOT of time. I have to change it somehow. I am not doing anything with twitter/facebook as well.

    (I have tried on and off during the last couple weeks to comment on BFS, I still can’t. I click enter and it just keeps loading, finally giving me some 500 internal server error)

  • I just realized that I can’t do it all and can’t visit everyone’s sites every day any more. I have changed it to try to get to all my favorites by the end of the week and if I have to comment on 2 or 3 articles in a row on the same site, that’s my compromise. There is a lot of great stuff to read. It’s hard not to just get sucked all into the cyber world.

  • @Suba, I’m glad you worked out the problem at BFS today! It’s nice to see you there now too!

    I’m impressed by bloggers like you that write 1000-2000 word posts. I usually can’t think of that much to say on a subject until people start commenting and asking questions, lol.

    @First Gen American, I have also started visiting sites once or twice a week instead of daily since I just run out of time.

  • Wow!!! That’s a very demanding schedule you have! Congratulations on keeping up with it.
    I have had my blog for 6 months now and I’m taking a much more relaxed approach. Probably the tasks are the same, but I have only one blog and post once a week – for now at least. I can’t afford much more since I already have two jobs. I also try to find new interesting blogs, read, comment and participate… it’s very valuable for me to do so since I get more information about the subjet that I like.

  • @Finanzas, sadly, I haven’t been able to keep up with all of it every day. This has become a 2 day schedule, lol. If I had 2 jobs, I wouldn’t have this schedule…I’ve just turned blogging into my second job. :-) Good luck with your own time – sounds like you are stretched too.

  • Wow! I can relate. I am spending 10 hours a day or so raising my blogs. I only have two but it’s like have two kids to take care of.

    One thing that has helped me is making a list of everything that I want to do for the week, printing it out and then only doing what is on the list. I break my list out by days of the week. It keeps me on track. And having the list lets me have a plan and keeps me moving towards my bigger goals.

    I have also changed the format of my posts a little bit from full on article writing to more bullet points and shorter posts. Ironically, writing lists goes much faster but can sometimes have more words with little effort.

    Hope that helps!

  • @Keith, I really like that weekly list idea! Thank you!

    And yes, list posts do make life easier and the readers seem to like them too!

  • [...] March is shaping up to be absolutely amazing since I’ve already brought in $1500 and have another $750 on the way, BUT this is NOT a normal month.  I’ve just happened to receive 3 large sums of money for advertising deals I started working on in January and February.  All of these deals are for 6-12 months, so I can’t expect the same results in April.  My only safe way of blogging full time is to continue following my daily blog to-do list.
