Pro Bloggers, How Many Hours A Day Do You Blog For? By jamesmJune 3, 2008July 11, 2009Blogger Author: jamesm
I’ve just recently started blogging. Previously, I would post things for my friends on social networks like Facebook and Myspace, and was always curious about starting up a blog of my own; it seemed like a natural extension of what I already did.
I decided to take the jump a few months ago and started MumboJumboDaily.com. It’s something I’d like to do professionally, so I’ve been pouring a lot of time into it to attract readers and subscribers, hopefully by producing compelling content. It also led to a job for me at another blog, thehottestgadgets.com, where I’ve just completed my first month as a contributor there. If you’d like, please visit my site, MumboJumboDaily.com, and let me know what you think!
Oh, and to answer the question, I try to put in at least 4 hours a day, usually 6, but sometimes end up putting in as much as 9 or 10! Hey, what can I say? I really enjoy writing.
Blogging – very little these days, although I still jump in now and then. Webmastering – all day…
I have about 4 blogs I am starting up at the moment and probably spend about 10 – 15 mins on each. But with background reading and what-not that becomes more like 2 hours.
Just getting into it now, but good fun.
I’ve recently become far stricter on my blogging/social networking time. It’s led to a significant increase in productivity and interest, because I’m far more focused on what I’m doing during those limited periods.
So as a I result I spend a maximum of 45 minutes writing and publishing blog articles (though obviously I’m randomly thinking of topics and concepts at other times). I spend about another hour and a half commenting on other blogs, submitting to social networking sites, etc. I use a stopwatch.
Take Less Time, Do More Stuff
Well, if blogging means actually writing something, I spend 2-4 hours blogging. The rest of the time is reserved for communication and RSS feed reading as well as browsing around for stories or inspiration.
6-8 hours for me.
Definitely an addictive thing, but I am full-time now just scraping by.
