Recently, I guest posted for a big blog, Write to Done, which offers writing tips.
Did I write an article on how the readers could improve their writing?
My guest post was not about how to improve writing skills; the topic was how to improve time-management skills.
Consider these comments from readers:
I needed to take my life back from blogging. This is really taking all of my time already.
We have to take time for ourselves, but as a blogger, we have to maintain lots of work, and I am also working almost 12 hours on my blogs,
By blogging, we do spend time. I, myself, spend about 8 hours each day. Researching keywords, taking pictures, editing it, research the article, making it good, readable, and understanding and also the last part is SEO.
Bloggers have so much to do to be successful in both their online and offline worlds.
We hear so much about the necessity of multitasking, in all areas of our lives, but is that really the answer?
Fortunately, our guest author, Alice Jones, is here to explain the pros and cons of multitasking for bloggers.
Ready to dip your toes into the huge pool that is blogging? It is an extremely good hobby to get into, as you will find that you develop your writing skills and will be able to spend your time informing others of your hobbies and passions.
But which hobbies and passions do you want to write about? This is the first major question that faces all bloggers. Sure, you could just go down the lifestyle blogging route, but as there are more and more bloggers breaking onto the scene it is now more important than ever to find your specialty and stick with it. There is no better way than standing out in the blogging world than by finding a niche topic that you can blog about.
So which type of blogger do you want to be? It all boils down to the type of things you want to blog about. Here are some of the most successful types of bloggers.
Lifehack.org lives up to its name.
The popular blog is aptly named “Lifehack” since the articles contain tips for life.
For a long time, I read Lifehack to become a better person since using the tips will make you a better individual.
However, there is far more to the site than the ability to become a more productive individual.
You can actually become a more successful blogger.
Both as a reader and also as a writer, Lifehack will enhance your ability to blog as well as navigate life in 18 unexpected ways.

Are you ready? Let’s jump into the details without much ado.
Do you have a goal to make money blogging?
Most bloggers do.
How do I know?
Mostly Blogging is a blogging tips site. However, when I checked my top best-performing posts of all time, I found This Is the Way You Can Make Big Money Blogging Now.
The post is not only in my top 5 posts with the best all-time page views, the article also has the most social shares of any post in the two years I’ve been blogging.
Many people associate money-making with marketing.
However, since you are a blogger, you are also a marketer.
As a blogger, you market your content.
Bloggers who are content marketers deliver such great content to their readers, they follow up by selling a service or a product.
Look at the stats I just shared. Clearly, the majority of bloggers are interested in making money from their blogs, also called blog monetization. Even if you aren’t a marketer now, the day may come when you might want to market your products or services.
The GetResponse Automation Tool can help you achieve that goal. According to the people at GetResponse, it is considered the all-in-one marketing tool for bloggers.
Are you a blogger who wants to monetize? Then, this tool is for you.
Do you have a to-do list?
Maybe you have a honey-do list.
A to-do list is a list of tasks you intend to accomplish.
A honey-do list is a list of tasks your significant other wants you to accomplish.
As a blogger, you must have many tasks that need completion since being a blogger is so time-consuming.
I have a to-do list. As a matter of fact, I have many.
I have to-do lists on my iPhone in the Notes app, the Pages app, my Evernote app, and on my Wunderlist app. Also, I keep to-do lists each day in my Google Calendar. I also keep to-do lists on paper on my laptop, so I will see them when I blog.
In addition, I have tasks that need completing on the honey-do list I give my husband.
Today’s guest, Mickey Ann, offers six tips for managing your to-do lists.
Since she has completed research in the area of time management, she is well qualified to write about productivity tips for bloggers.
Fair warning: Tip 3 is a shocker.
