So you want to blog better? To be honest, it’s kind of an oxymoron that you’re here. After all, you’re procrastinating… right? But don’t go anywhere just yet! Let’s make a deal. Once you’ve read these 29 tips to increase your productivity as a blogger, you’re going to switch into blogger mode and get on with it. If you were looking for a sign, this is it. Read it, share it, bookmark, do whatever you have to do to get your head in the game…. and then go it all to use. Deal? Deal.


1. Schedule your posts

If there’s one thing we all know to be true, it’s that blogging is an incredibly time consuming hobby. There’s much more to blogging than simply writing and hitting publish. With brainstorming, planning, writing, editing, photographing, posting….. before too long, you’ve spent hours of your time creating one short post. To save time and produce on mass, write your posts in advance and schedule them to publish themselves (i.e. easily done on the right hand side of WordPress). A great way to do this if you’re blogging about your life in real time is to sit down on a Sunday and write 3-7 blog posts for that week. That way you’re only allocating one day each week to crafting blog posts and can send the rest of your week doing things worthy of blogging, photographing, networking, etc.

2. Do the most important things first thing in the morning

This point is more important than most of us will car to recognise. It’s no secret that we are more productive first thing in the morning – as soon as we have woken up and have no thoughts/dramas on the brain. BEFORE you check your emails or social media, consider doing your most important work – whether it be writing a post or a chapter for a book… whatever is most important and requires your complete concentration should always be done at the start of the day.

3. Only check your emails twice per day

We live in an increasingly connected world – that’s no secret. But because of this it often becomes far too easy to connect and much harder to actually disconnect and find ourselves in the moment, enjoying reality. To avoid wasting countless hours pondering over emails, try to only check them twice per day. Once in the morning – check and respond. Once again in the early evening – check and respond.

4. Work in bulk

Whether it’s taking enough photos to last 3-4 posts or sitting down for a few hours to pump out 4 high quality blog posts, working in bulk is often the best way to work efficiently and to the best of your ability without letting blogging impact too heavily on your day to day life. If you’re blogging professionally, chances are you don’t mind when each of your worlds overlap, but if you’re just starting out it’s a great way to manage your time.

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

5. Plan, Plan, Plan

If you don’t have yourself a planner – be it digital or the old and faithful pen+paper, now is as good a time as any to get yourself one. Planning each day, week and month of your life will inevitably lead to better practices for time management as you set yourself expectations and aim to meet them.

6. Set Goals

Take it one step further and begin to set (and meet) your goals. Goal setting is a great way to establish your expectations and decipher whether they are achievable. Don’t be afraid to adjust and readjust your expectations, as life will inevitably throw you curveballs.

7. …But be realistic

Have you set realistic or unrealistic goals? This is of course different for everyone as we all have different levels of achievement and productivity, so be sure not to compare your goals to those of others around you. Throwing around numbers and dreams as if they may somehow be achievable if you say them out loud is irrational. Think to yourself, what have I achieved so far in the time that I have had? Is there a way I can be more productive with my time and achieve more in the same space of time? (i.e. hints throughout this post). And then don’t waste a minute more – set your goals & set out to achieve them.

8. Separate Work from Rest

There’s no better time than in the 21st Century to legitimately find yourself with a split personality. It’s important to distinguish work time from rest time and be sure to balance the two. Of course you won’t have equal parts of each, but distinguishing your rest time is a healthy way to ensure you enjoy your down time and relax, so that you’re feeling rejuvenated with fresh ideas when you start again.

9. Schedule your social media

Once you’re in a great writing routine with your posts scheduling themselves and everything working more efficiently than it ever has before, it’s time to consider your other biggest time consumer: social media. A great way to both grow your social following AND save time is to schedule your posts in advance. You can schedule Facebook posts in advance by using the clock icon in the left hand corner of post drafts – too easy! Twitter can be scheduled using a range of different apps and add-ons – WOW recommends giving Hootsuite a try. It’s free and easy to use!

10. Be aware of your Google Analytics but don’t go overboard

Monitoring Google Analytics to see your traffic sources, behaviour, geographic locations, etc. is a great way to get to know your audience, but it can also be an incredibly ineffective use of time as soon as you start to go overboard. Checking your Analytics too frequently can lead to rash decisions. Check and monitor your Analytics to see what is working (and what isn’t) every so often, but try not to go overboard.

Blogging tips 101 11. Find out whether you work better in silence or with music

Either you write with your left or your right hand, either you work better or worse with distractions. Find out which one you are of the two, and roll with it.

12. Turn off all other distractions

Even if you do prefer a little background noise, soundtrack, or movie playing in the background — there are some distractions that will never be an adequate use of your time. CASE IN POINT: Mr. Cellphone.

13. Have a Writing Schedule and Stick to It

It may (or may not) come as a surprise to you that many bloggers plan their blog posts a month in advance. This is a great way to visualise your posts for an entire month and see how they will appear on your blogroll. This is also a great way to ensure you’re diversifying your content and in turn keeping your readers interested. But most importantly, a writing schedule will keep you on track and ensure you stick to your goals.

14. Stop checking social media every 10 minutes

 …..oh  come on, you know you do it! Social media has an addictive nature and can easily eat up our time. There is perhaps nothing more that needs to be said than the following…

Eyes on the prize.

15. Read Other Blogs Effectively

 If you haven’t heard of Bloglovin’, you’ve probably been living under a digital rock. This site is the bloggosphere’s answer to productive procrastination. On this site you can follow your favourite blogs, discover new ones, and gather inspiration from bloggers around you. It’s pretty flippin’ fantastic if you ask me.

16. Keep a Minimalistic Workspace

Keeping your workspace tidy is one of the simplest but considerably effective ways to ensure you keep on top of your work, your goals, and achieve more out of the time you allocate yourself. 

wow HQ 17. The Process of elimination

If you find yourself at the middle of the day nowhere near completing half of your to-do list, fear not! You’re not alone. The best mindset is to visualise your tasks as a checklist you can work your way through. But you can also ask yourself — does this really need to be done? Sometimes the easiest way to work your way through your jobs is to simply eliminate them. If it doesn’t need to be done, eliminate it.

18. Celebrate both small and big achievements

 It’s difficult to stay focused without feeling as though you have achieved something… anything! Be sure to celebrate small triumphs, as they are bound to be working towards some overall bigger picture.

19. Do what you love and love what you do

If at any point you become so unproductive with your time that you are endlessly procrastinating from jobs you know need your attention, chances are you need to take a step back to refocus. Be sure to do what you love and love what you do, because nothing should come before your happiness.

20. If nothing goes right, go left

Sometimes things just don’t go your way. One of the best examples of this in the bloggosphere is when you find yourself relentlessly trying to fix a small technical bug in your backend, only to wind up creating a complete mess that feels beyond your control. In this instance, sometimes the best option is to think outside the box and go in a completely different direction. Can you delete the plugin creating a headache? Can you change or upgrade your theme? Can you stop working with a company or contact that is causing you stress?

21. Filter what information you receive

If there’s one question I get asked more than any other, its “how did you start working with companies and brands?”. But the truth is that the one thing you think you want more than anything else (to turn blogging into a full time profession) can also become the most time-consuming and stressful part of your work. Just remember that when the offers start coming in, they don’t stop!!! Soon enough you’ll have hundreds of emails coming your way daily and before too long its not possible to keep up your quality of work alongside all the emails and new tasks you need to conquer in order to stay on top of things. One way you can prevent things from piling up to the point of no recover is to filter the information you receive. If it begins to become a bit too much, consider segregating your fan email from your business email so you can switch between boring business matters and immediately get a boost of happiness going through your fan/reader mail.

22. Find connection in the disconnection

Taking a day or a few days off connection to the rest of the world will do more good for you than you might initially recognise. Switching off completely for a day or two will result in some seriously increased productivity levels. This is a great option if you have a project or deadlines that needs completing ASAP.

23. Focus and Refocus

Your goals, to-do lists, priorities, etc. should always be adjusted. Why? Change and evolution is natural. The best way to keep moving forward is to focus AND refocus.

24. Don’t be concerned with what everyone else is doing

Perhaps the most important and most underrated piece of advice – saved for anyone who made it this far in the list. The primary way you can doubt yourself and your work is to compare it to others – but as soon as you stop focusing on what others are doing (and being concerned that what they’re doing is better) and start focusing on YOUR work, is the exact same moment you will see yourself starting to succeed beyond belief.

25. Outsource

An increasingly popular phenomenon that doesn’t suit all bloggers (WOW is yet to revert to outsourcing), but a very good way to increase productivity nonetheless. If you find yourself in a position to start outsourcing and wish to do so, you can save much of your precious blogging time and perhaps increase your # of posts per week.

26. If overwhelmed, take a break

By this point in the list (and with all the information available on the internet), you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. Consider taking a short break – a few days or a week – to absorb your thoughts and gain a fresh perspective. You’ll come back more focused and productive than ever.

27. What goes in effects what comes out

Ever heard of ‘brain food’ or ‘concentration tea’ —- there’s good reason for that. Its true that what goes in effects what comes out, so take care of your body and it will take care of you.

28. Note your highest priority in life (for right now)

When it becomes a little fuzzy, confusing, or you just feel like you need clarity to remember why you started blogging in the first place. Take some time to consider what is important to you right now instead of what you might see yourself accomplishing in the future.

29. Every day is a new day

Last but not least….. every day is a new day. Blogging should be fun, inspiring, challenging, but always exciting.

    It is sometimes so frustrating starting out in the vast digital world, where there is so much competition. Yet, it is also riveting to be at the forefront of the digital-nomad era because there is so much future- potential. This post is so beneficial to the blogger just starting out(like myself) because it is a real life explanation of what it takes to be at the top of the game (like you). I love your blogging advice and will use it to propel my future career. Thanks again 🙂

    I loved the idea of “Rules of Three” to focus. 🙂

    These points are all really motivational, but I think my favourite is the advice about writing several posts at once. That’s really sensible and useful advice!

    Great tips!!!

    I started my blog in 2008 and have been at it ever since. Learned a lot over the years. I write everyday, usually first thing in the morning. I didn’t always write everyday, but since I have kept journals writing long hand for over 30 years, it has now become an important and essential part of my creative process and practice as a visual artist/painter. I don’t worry about what I am going to write about now. I keep my ears, eyes open, and let my subject matter come to me. I don’t force it.

    This year I started another blog as I am a Tarot reader for six years now. It is a wonderful way to study the meanings of the cards and integrate them into my life. I post daily on this blog as well and base my writing on a daily drawn card, and have started my own online and face to face Tarot Reading business.

At the moment I’m in Brazil for 5 weeks and it’s hard to find the time to blog, because I’m out exploring and doing things all the time. But that’s why I’m happy I scheduled posts before I left.. Best way to keep your blog going!

    I think what you mean is ***affects 😉 Good spelling is also part of being a good blogger.

    Great tips. Also helps if you have an editorial diary to plan out your content on a week by week basis.

    Great post Brooke! I definitely need to be more organised with my blog – time to start planning and scheduling my posts! x

    So many great tips here! My best tip is to figure out WHEN you work most effectively.
    Before I quit my day job I used to do all my blogging between 10pm and 1am and I thought this was because it was the only time of day I could squeeze it in. But After 6 months of blogging 9-5 I realised I wasn’t much more productive with all this extra time! I realised I work best really late at night.
    I’ve stopped trying to fight it now and regularly take an afternoon off and then work from 11pm until 2am.

    Hi, Brooke.
    Loved your post and yes, I’m procrastinating right now. I personally blog best when everyone has gone to bed and everything is quiet and I can listen to my music.

    You’re so right about focussing on yourself. It can be so so overwhelming to see other people’s blogs/achievements but we shouldn’t really be focused on that..

    Lovely post!

    This is a fantastic selection of tips. I’m definitely guilty of checking my social media too often, and constantly being at the beck and call of each and every buzz of my phone, be it an important phone call or just an instagram like. Definitely need to find more focus! As for rest time… would love to find some of that!

    Thanks for sharing. Now I’m off to write blog posts… 🙂
