When it comes to successful blogging from home, here are Ten Tips which will increase your productivity:
Working from home is convenient lets face it and doing so helps to create a better work-life balance. Blogging is a job that does not require you to spend time at a specific location and is a fantastic one in which you can choose any place to work from.
Start your day early
Although blogging is more lenient with deadlines compared to a 9 to 5 job, you don’t need to hit goals during the day and you can wake up earlier than the rest of the world and start early.
Dress for success
Even if you’re working from home, it doesn’t give you an excuse to not care about your appearance and look like a slob. You don’t need to look extravagant to produce great work either. Simply wear comfortable clothes and you are ready to start your work day.
Create a workspace
Your workspace should be designated for work only. Avoid putting anything in your workspace that distracts you from working effectively such as gaming stations or video consoles.
Many of us are easily distracted with small things that keep us from doing important tasks. These can be the TV, checking in on social media, or even just the simple act of procrastinating. Try as much as possible to avoid these things and you will definitely accomplish more each day.
Find your pace
It’s important to have a pace while working, even if you’re managing your time efficiently. It could be starting very early in the morning or working on the biggest task first. But whatever method best works for you, try to stick to it as your daily routine.
Set a time
Once you are able to find your pace it should be much easier to set strict working hours. This will go a long way in helping you to write amazing blog content.
Take small breaks
Even blogging can be tiring at the beast of time, so be sure to take breaks when you need them. You can also set a timer to remind you when it’s time for your next break. When taking your break be sure to leave your chair and walk around, fix yourself something eat or do a quick workout.
Catch up on reading
As a blogger it’s important to have your creative juices flowing when writing, since you can get rusty if you don’t keep up with recent industry news. During your break or before working, be sure to read an article or watch a short YouTube clip.
Set a day off
You can’t work everyday and not be burnout, or too tired to write. Be sure to set a day where you can rest and let your work wait for you, until you can get back to it with a fresh mind.
Nature has a way with its healing powers as it’s rejuvenating and calming. A relaxing walk in the park will help you organise your thoughts and write better.
