Blogging Productivity Tip: Set A Time For Writing Posts
Do you ever feel like you don't have enough time for blogging?

Darren Rowse explains how to schedule your writing times for maximum blogging success.  The other day I offered some business blogging productivity tips that go well with Darren's theme here.

By setting aside a specific time each day or each week to blog, you can accomplish more and write with more focus.  Remove distractions - you might even find it necessary to go "offline" to write some or all of your posts.

And I agree wholeheartedly with Darren: in general, you should make that special blogging time as early as possible in your workday.  This will help you concentrate better and finish this most important aspect of your work before all else.

Hi Easton! I'm also going experiment with another productivity and development idea here. I am going to set a goal for myself regarding how many comments I leave a day (making sure that I'm always commenting), how many posts I do a week, and how many of those posts are original more involved posts versus quick hits to link people to a neat idea or news item. I'll tell you how it works out!

It works well to post in the morning when ideas are fresh and we are at the peak -- thanks for that reminder Easton.

On a slightly different note, I've also found value in working in a few different places rather than the sometimes recommended one-place-only-deal. Recently I bought wireless for my DSL lines at home so that I can move around and even post out on the deck on a nice day... I love that freedom to move around. It helps me to create from different angles... What do you think?

Great ideas, Ann and Ellen!

Ann, I will try doing the same thing as you to see how it goes.

Ellen, wireless is very nice - we have a laptop and use it all over the house as well; it certainly helps me work better - creating from different angles, as you say.

Good tips Easton, I've been reading Darren's series as well - looking for some tips & tricks. I've been looking to work past some of my 'bloggers block' and these suggestions have been helping.

Working early and in different places seems to help me as well - you get a chance to view the world differently. That and blogging with the first cup of coffee for the day works fairly well. ;)
