I will like to start this post by wishing you all a happy and productive week. The month of January is already coming to an end; it’s really surprising how fast time moves these days. Today, I want to talk about how to develop an Effective Blogging Productivity.
Often time, blogging seems to be the perfect dream for most people, where you just need to work a few hours each day and then use the rest of your time to have fun and enjoy yourself. But the truth is that if you really want to achieve your desired result with blogging, you need to find that perfect balance of being super productive while living life in your own terms.
You need to pay more attention on the critical tasks that will elevate your business; you need to work in the most productive manner where you’re getting things done so that you will have enough time to do the things you love later.
There is something you need to know, every successful business person both online and offline has a set of guiding principles that enables them achieve amazing results. Therefore, you need a similar set of principles; this will guide you to put you on track whenever you encounter obstacles or feel the pressure to try something new. So let’s get to it……
6 Tips to Effective Blogging Productivity.
TIP# 1. You can’t please everyone: This is one mistake most of us always make, trying to satisfy everyone all the time. You need to know that no matter how hard you try to please people, you must have some people bad mouthing you. It’s not a bad thing anyway because if you’ve never had someone criticizing you in business, then you’ve not started.
This is because it’s a natural phenomenon. When you get critics, don’t worry because it’s only a sign to prove that you’re doing it well. So my advice is instead of worrying about your critics which can affect your blogging productivity, why not focus on making those that already appreciate what you do more happy?
When you get a negative comment, don’t ignore or delete it, it will show that you don’t even know what you’re talking about, just try and respond to it in a positive and polite manner.
TIP# 2. Focus on a single Internet Business at a time. There are so many distractions on the internet; one mistake most people make including me is being everywhere every time. You can’t achieve any success when you’re trying to get involved in any business opportunity that comes your way. The best thing is to find that one thing that works for you and stick to it.
The reason most people gets overwhelmed all the time is because they are constantly bombarded by offers with the latest can’t fail business opportunity. To enhance your blogging productivity thereby becoming successful online, you need to pay no attention to these offers and focus on what will bring result to what you’re currently doing.
TIP# 3. Understand your Energy level: Another key to effective blogging productivity is getting to understand your working pattern. We all have different ways and time in which we work, most people prefer working in the morning as soon as they get up from bed, some like doing it at night after work while others start slow but build momentum throughout the day.
The best thing here is to understand when you work best and therefore channel your energy on that main task that propels your business forward. What I’m saying is, we all get tired during/after a work day, so it’s of utmost important that we dedicate our most energetic state to that one activity that produces results instead of waiting our time on things that doesn’t matter.
TIP# 4. Always be quick to adapt to change: One of the downside of blogging is that things always change, what works about two years ago may not be working today and those who continue to succeed are the people who always adapt to their business model.
An example of this is the recent Google updates. Many years ago, somebody can just set up a 5 pages ugly looking blog, buy spammy backlinks and flood it with many affiliate links, the blog will rank number 1 in Google and then he will start making thousands of dollars from it just like that. But today, such thinks no longer exist; Google is now slapping such sites.
So, if you continue doing such things today, you will be getting yourself in trouble with the almighty Google. Therefore, one of the best aspects of productivity is to always spend some time on educating yourself, always look for opportunities to grow and expand on what you’re doing.

TIP# 5. Master the 80/20 Rule: I learnt this from Steve Scott’s book……..Internet Lifestyle Productivity. The 80/20 rule as stated by Vilfredo Pareto, states that you get 80% of your result from 20% of your effort. In other words, you get more result when you concentrate on the things that actually work.
Take for instance, assuming you want to get more traffic to your blog, all you have to do is read one blog post or a book that talks about web traffic and start implementing the lessons immediately. What most of us always do is to start reading everything that comes our way thereby getting ourselves involved with too many information leading to Information overload.
Following the 80/20 rule means you focus on what’s working for your business. Basically you rinse and repeat your way to success. It’s not a glamorous strategy. But it works because you take those small breakthroughs and turn them into something big! You are smart enough to avoid the tactics that doesn’t produce good results.
TIP# 6. Know how you spend your time: Have you heard of that popular phrase that Time is Money? I know most of us are already familiar with that word but do we actually make use of it? The point is to make sure you know when you’re squandering time on things that will not add any positive result to your business.
There you have it.
I know there are many other ways to achieve effective blogging productivity, but these are the ones I’m making use of at the moment.
The most successful people in the world are doers, not readers. Therefore, I challenge you to immediately apply what you’ve just learned. Reading is not enough; you must apply. Don’t worry if you make mistakes along the way. It’s the best way to learn a process. The important thing is you’re applying what you’ve learned and moving towards amazing blogging productivity.
