Welcome to my first post in a new series of weekly posts!
I read about blogging. I read about blogging A LOT. Coming from a science background, research is natural to me and I love to read.
But not everyone has the time to read 30 articles about the best UI design for a blog menu. Or the inclination.
So, I’ve decided to share my favorite posts about blogging in a weekly review post each Friday. My Friday Fave 5 lists will include a list of my 5 favorite posts that address a specific blogging topic.
This week’s topic is Productivity for Bloggers.
I know a lot of us struggle with finding time and energy to blog consistently. In fact, those of you who responded to my recent email survey said, overwhelmingly, that this was your biggest blogging frustration.
Early this week I posted 5 Tips for Busy Bloggers on Finding Time to Blog. Now I’m sharing 5 posts that helped me learn how to make the best use of my time as a blogger and businesswoman.
This post comes from one of my favorite bloggers who blog about blogging 🙂 – Darren Rowse at Problogger.com.
Darren is definitely one of the superstars of the blogosphere. I love his posts because the topics are relevant, actionable and well-written.
In this awesome post, Darren talks about how batching tasks (batch processing) helps him get so much more done.
This post is from another blogging great, Jeff Goins. Jeff blogs about blogging and writing, more specifically.
This great, short and to-the-point post offers some practical tips to help you focus while writing your blog posts.
The folks at Zapier are all about getting stuff done. They specialize in automation integration to help you get stuff done online.
They also wrote a great post about how to prioritize your to-dos when your list gets out of control.
I am a huge fan of automating as many business and blogging tasks as possible to improve your productivity and get more done with your blog. But should also consider eliminating and outsourcing some tasks as well?
