Since school is just right around the corner for me (at the moment that you’re read this, my first day of school probably just ended), I know I should step up my game this year and fix up a new blogging style/schedule.
Last year I blogged extremely sporadically because of school, and this year I really want to not let you guys down and continue spreading my awesomeness in a timely manner.
So, let’s talk about finding a balance between school/reading/blogging. Here are the two simple steps I took to organizing my schedule:
1.) Answer the tough time management questions. Particularly:
- How much reading/blogging time can I squeeze into my day? (For me: About two hours a day for both together… Not two hours each.)
- Is that time enough for me to read in a leisurely manner? Is that enough time for me to give out good blogging content? (For me: It’s enough time to read without getting stressed, but it’s not enough time to churn out good content and be active in the blogosphere.)
- Are there days when I’m not busy/don’t have any homework? (For me: Yes! Homework is pretty much dead to me on Wednesday and Saturday nights.)
2.) Draw a conclusion.
So what I plan to do now is to just keep doing homework like usual (boo!) with an hour or two saved up for pleasure reading daily. On Wednesday and Saturday nights–I go blog crazy. I’ll draft and schedule enough posts until my next available day, and I’ll leave a shit ton of comments while I’m able. There’s roughly five hours for me to do this, which I can probably accomplish if I push myself.
Basically the point of this post is to tell you guys that I will be busy. I’ll probably only be a living soul in the blogosphere on Wednesday and Saturday nights. I’ll probably squeeze in some blogging time on Thursdays and Sundays too, but I don’t know.
I’m really hoping this new “schedule” works out for me. I want to have time to focus on studies, reading and blogging without giving any of them up.
Do you have a blogging schedule? How did you come up with it if you did?
