There has always been a debate in the online home business specter of how you should carry about your everyday way of business (in particular with blogging)…….You know how do you prepare yourself in writing your next Post, where do you physically blog from, where do you get your ideas , how long should your Post be etc…
Let me tell you how I do it.
1.My Area in my House I sit to Blog
Right now I am curled up comfortably in my tempurpedic bed with the fan blowing and a small cover on my legs. For me this is always how I worked from home.
Even when I was in high school and college, I would do home work and read from my couch or in my bed or a bean bag.
I caught a lot of slack including from my parents, teachers and friends who said I needed to be sitting upright in a chair and sitting at a desk to be more productive.
I have tried it all my Life, experimenting here and there with a formal desk and chair and it is just not for me.
I just become more unproductive when I am sitting upright in a chair and desk. Obviously, I had to compromise during classes in College and High school sitting in school desks, but I sure was restless to book it on home to lay back in my bean ban and start studying for a test. 🙂
However, please do not be swayed by me. Many if not most people are more comfortable and productive when they do work (like blogging) from a designated office or desk in their homes.They have better access to things like copiers and faxes and office supplies.
So do not feel like you have to sprawl yourself out on your couch with over sized fluffed up pillows for your head to fit comfortably on. 😉
But if you really want to know how to make money on a blog just go with what naturally flows for you and do what has worked for you in the past.
2.Now as far as preparing how I post and when I do it
This is also something that seems to be up for continuous debate among Imers and Bloggers. I am from the camp that the more you can blog the better success your blog will have particularly with the Search Engines. If you can blog everyday and you have QUALITY, QUALITY content and can continue to do that for years then you are on your way to success.
However, most cannot do this and I would advise for most not to try it. Because more than likely you will burn out.
I try to adopt a plan that fits me and something I can do consistently. Right now I put up a new post on my blog twice a week. I do this nearly every week.
Many of you will be able to do a post once a week or once every month. But the key is to stick with it and be consistent.
Btw, I have no set time during the day for blogging. Sometimes I blog at night or sometimes in the morning. It usually depends how and when I want to complete other important stuff like promoting my blog or doing guest blogging.
For most I recommend doing it at a particular time during the day. I think having a routine in blogging can really help you long term.
3. What to Write About in my Next Post
To be honest this part of blogging is so natural for me. I will usual think a day or two before my time of blogging what I want to write about. It usually only takes a few minutes in my head to sort out exactly what I should and want to blog about. Focusing what will best benefit my readers and do it in a very engaging way.
Now for a lot of you guys this form of planning for your next post is not feasible. You may want to have some more structure to it. Getting out a pen and paper and writing ideas of what you want to say in your next post is always a good thing to do.
And for specific ideas ? Well, visiting other people’s blogs can be helpful. I personally like to go to Forums to see what others are saying about the problems they have with internet Marketing and Blogging.
Then I will make a Post in my Blog the next day that relates in alleviating that problem.
4.How Long Should Your Post Be
I used to be one of those bloggers who did the minimum of 250-300 word post. As I have matured as a writer, I try to hit a least 600-700 words for each of my post.
I can tell you this. When you start getting above 500 words per post the better all around your site does in the Search Engines and for your traffic and Readers in general.
And then you will start seeing how to make money on a blog and do it efficiently and effectively. :>)
So if you really write a LONG post with some content that truly helps people and really keeps them keep coming back for more…well then you are on your way to having yourself a winner !.
