Some of you also have full-time jobs and a family. Many of you do not blog full time and if you do it’s still a lot of work to do daily.

How Bloggers Get More Done
Bloggers get more done today than ever before with many tools and they tend to be more focused. They are always looking for ways to get more done as blogging can take up a lot of time. Therefore, most bloggers walk around with a to-do list that helps them stress less.
In this day and age, it is not easy to find time for blogging. With so many distractions everywhere we go from our phones or laptops with notifications constantly going off all the time ( myself included!), how will bloggers ever get anything done?
The answer lies in one word: focus! If you really want your work/life balance in check then set limits on what can distract you- turn them OFF when working instead of allowing yourself to be consumed by Slack conversations about why someone had an epic fail at something else entirely 10 times.
It is no wonder more bloggers struggle to get more done as they try to post long-form blog posts today.
Check out these 6 steps to get more done today!
Write it Down is How Bloggers Get More Done
By writing your tasks down you will hold yourself accountable to get them done and check them off. There is no better feeling in the day than to check things off that to-do list!
Not only writing down your to-do list but also content ideas is the key to blogging. Finding new content ideas and keeping them written down assures you will blog about them.
Finally, be sure to write down these on your task list:
- what you NEED to do,
- WANT to do, and
- LIKE to do.
This list can of course include personal activities throughout the day to organize a well-rounded day.Not only writing down your to-do list but also content ideas are the key to blogging. #bloggingtips Click To Tweet
Categorize Your Tasks To Be More Productive
By categorizing your blogging tasks you can break them up into smaller to-do’s. This helps you proceed quicker and easier throughout the day.
Therefore if you are a morning person like me, you may want to schedule your writing first, then SEO, and then your social media scheduling.
Save your less “thinking” tasks for later in the day unless you are a night owl.
Now if you are a blogger that does not like SEO, my friend Donna has some great blogging SEO tips for you to make it easier! Her tips will help you stress less.

Assign the Time to Get Things Done
Next, plan out what time you will do throughout the day. Assign each task a time limit. Make sure to leave time for breaks and lunch.
If you sit for long hours, schedule time for a walk or yoga. You don’t want to injure your body by sitting too long and having to go to physical therapy. Been there, done that!
That time and injury can really set your blogging tasks way behind.
You don’t want to wear yourself out each and every day mentally either. If you get sick that will set you back in time. Your brain needs a rest as well.
Most bloggers work long hours so this is a priority for bloggers to get things done.

It is said that when you carry your list around with you, it will help keep things in perspective. You know for certain what needs to be completed next and won’t forget about anything on the go-go’s life!
It also makes sure no task falls through the cracks because they didn’t see themselves doing them until later down the line anyway (and trust me – there are always plenty!). Writing things down such as due dates helps you keep track of everything.
If something doesn’t belong on any of these lists then just leave ’em out—saving precious time!
Furthermore, having a place to write things down helps bloggers get more done when they come up with new ideas for blog posts. Sometimes your best ideas come when you are away from your computer.
