This is one of the biggest hurdles for new bloggers who are already working a day job and want to get on with their work before deciding to quit smoking and blog full time.
When you work full time, it is difficult to eat when you are back home after a hard day at work. Consuming materials is an ongoing process and often occurs while you are working through your daily routine. So let’s let the material consumption happen at work. Read as you work and jot down ideas in a notebook or in Evernote. You don’t have to consult your boss or tell everyone that you are blogging or considering it as a secondary source of income. No, do not do that.
All you can do is read interesting content in your feed reader while working on your multifaceted office job. It won’t take long and you will eventually get used to the routine of reading material and working on something else in parallel.
Use your email inbox as a blog editor
Create a new email message, write the post title as the subject, do not enter the sender’s email address, and you’re good to go. You used this technique to create content. You can save the post as an email draft and come home, transfer it to my content management system, and post it online.
Email is private and your employer respects your privacy and does not read your emails. This is a great way to steal some time and generate content for your blog while at the office, at school, or at the workplace.
Change your daily schedule a bit. Try to get up early and spend an hour writing content before rushing to work. When you wake up early, you have a fresh, stress-free one at first. That means it’s more likely to be effective early in the morning compared to late at night for creating blog content. It really depends on style and personal preferences, but remember the old saying.
If you can do this habit by getting up early each morning, you guarantee that your blog’s efficiency will improve over time. It may take 4-5 months before you notice the change, so don’t give up too soon. Try to get up early in the morning and compose a blog post before heading to the office. Makes practice perfect.
Use the money to outsource content
Here’s another way to create content without spending time creating content – outsourcing it. Yes, invest some money and let someone else work on the copy and body of the post. Then buy it from that person and post it on their blog. This is called “ghostwriting” and many bloggers do it to keep reading their blogs.
Many bloggers won’t admit it, but many credible bloggers do it to save time. This is not illegal and will not damage the reputation of your blog. What you need to make sure is that the content fits the theme and tone of your blog and that a writer is a serious person who is putting in enough effort to create the blog post. If you make sure that the content is good and you can use it with a little editing, it is worth investing some money in your blog and letting the content flow for a while until you choose a rhythm.
What you must not do
Here are some things you should never do, whether you can find time to blog or not.
⦁ Posting Duplicate Content – Don’t post duplicate or sparse content on your blog. This is a surefire way to destroy your blog and you may never be able to recover from the damage. Do not do this. It is better not to post anything than to post duplicate or plagiarized content.
⦁ Outsourcing Low-Quality Content – Outsourced content can cost a lot of money. If it’s too much for your budget, don’t hire cheap writers who don’t go to great lengths to create content and extract keyword-rich articles for your sake. Do not do that. This will hurt your search engine rankings and slow down your reading. Readers will notice that you are outsourcing someone else’s content and they will stream it slowly. Don’t say shoddy content.
⦁ Post randomly without consistency – Be consistent with your work and stay in your niche. Don’t post about random stuff and remove the topic from your blog, just because you’re short on time or out of stock. The trick here is finding time in your busy schedule and delivering quality content. Overtime efficiency will improve with repeated practice, but under no circumstances should you break a consistent topic on your blog. This will send the wrong message to your audience and your website will gradually lose its reputation.
