How You Can Become a More Effective Blogger

How You Can Become a More Effective Blogger

There are so many things that go into becoming a successful blogger; it's not as simple as just sitting down at your computer and typing. Because of all the problems that can arise when you're trying to write a great blog, from writer's block, distractions, phone calls, and other business distractions you may wind up pulling your hair out by the end of the day, and still have no blog to show for it. To help you become a more effective blogger I have put together some helpful tips.

Write - I know this one may sound crazy, but honestly it will help. If you find yourself suffering from blank page syndrome, the best way to break through it is to just start writing. Open a blank document and just start writing about whatever pops into your head. Once the dam has broken, you will be able to focus those ideas into topics that you can actually write about in an effective manner. This is a great way to jump start your creative process while also clearing your mind at the same time.

Distractions - Distractions are one of the most common causes behind a loss of productivity when it comes to writing. We're all aware of how performing online research can lead to an avalanche of distractions, for example we may decide to check our email while we're online or just hop on over to Facebook for a minute and discover that we have lost two hours in the process. In order to use your time effectively one of the best things you can do is avoid social media while you are working at your computer, it may also be a good idea to keep your cell phone at a safe distance so that you're not distracted by notifications on your screen. Your work area can also provide plenty of additional distractions as well. When you're trying to write, you should work in an area that will present the least amount of distractions as possible.

Routine - Blogging should be considered as a part of your job, not something that you are doing to kill some time. Therefore, you should include time in your daily routine for writing. If you need structure in your daily routine, you may find that creating a schedule will help keep you on task. Scheduling a specific period of time in your day for blogging will help you be more effective and productive. Once you become accustomed to blogging at a particular time of the day, you will soon notice that it becomes part of your daily routine. 

  Blogging can be one of the hardest things to accomplish during your work day, but if you implement some of the tips I have listed above, it should become a natural process. Blogging is an effective marketing method that should be used regularly, but only if you have the time and dedication to do it in the correct manner.
