4 Tips to Create More Blog Content in Less Time

Ever wanted to create more blog content in less time? I often hear, “writing blog posts takes too much of my time…” or “I don’t write blog posts every week because I have other things to do…” – and I understand.

Life will get in the way of what we want to achieve. Most people starting their blog don’t have all the time in the world to dedicate to blogging. They have 9 – 5 jobs, kids, pets, and relatives to attend to, but we all have 24 hours in a day and if I can create 4 blog posts in 3 hours – you can definitely create 1 a day.

All it takes is getting the best use of your time, and that’s exactly what these tips will help you do. 4 Tips to creating more blog content in less time..

Tip #1: Stop Checking Stats

Don’t worry, I do it too. This is almost an obsession when starting out. You want to know who came to your site in the past hour, or half hour, or ten minutes. You want to see if anyone subscribed while you went to get a glass of water.

It’s important to know that the three minutes you spend checking stats add up, and you end up not getting much done. So try your best to stay away from your blog’s admin panel when you’re writing. What I used to do was disconnect the internet so that I wasn’t tempted – now I’m a have a bit more self-control.

Tip #2: Don’t Get Distracted

YouTube is filled with juicy videos that grab you and don’t let you go for hours on end. I admit, there are times where I try to convince myself that I’ve been working too hard – so I go check out what new, crazy videos have been uploaded to YouTube.

I mean, if you watch one “Annoying Orange” video, then you gotta watch them all, right?

HUGE time waster. So again, to avoid any online distractions, disconnect from the internet and get to work. You’ll be surprised with how much you’ll get done without internet access, it’s amazing.

Tip #3: You Got What You Need – Just Start Writing

One thing that stops a lot of bloggers is the thought that they don’t know enough yet. So they go out there (on the internet again) in search for new information, or new ideas to write about. They get so involved in the learning aspect of blogging for business, that they never get down to just blogging.

Learning is great, and necessary – but it’s another HUGE time waster if done excessively. You got what you need, just do it.

Tip #4: Work In Intervals Of 60-60-30 – It works!

This is a productivity technique that I’ve been using to create more content in less time. Basically it works like this. You work for 60 minutes, take a 10 minute break – then work for another 60 minutes, take a 30 minute break.

This helps you get really focused on ONE thing for 60 minute chunks and then rejuvenates your mind completely for the next round.

Extra tip: Throw Away Your T.V

OK, maybe not throw it away, but put it in storage somewhere. The less time you spend watching television could be spend on creating more content. Use your time wisely – it’s limited.

    Limit your Twitter and Facebook time to one or two times per day and only after you have completed your tasks for the day. They can be real time vampires.

    I just verify my knowledge before I post something, so that I dont post some error, then all comments come back saying you posted a wrong content.

    Also I try to make it conversational, by adding polls or videos, or end with a question to the reader.
