The first thing to say is – blogging is awesome and interesting!
The second thing is – some distractions could slow down your blogging activity.
I’m currently facing these distractions and as the result I failed to update my blogs on time. My traffic dropped drastically as well as my income except for some blogs which could maintain its performance although they are not being updated. By the way updating is absolutely essential to maintain the blog performance.
Here I’ll share some of the highly-disturbing distractions that I have to face in blogging.
Yup, email is important in our life now. And honestly I feel like my daily life is not complete without reading email. The negative side of it is – it becomes a distraction for me to update my blogs. And in addition the emails are coming from time to time and as the result I end up myself reading all those emails and ignoring blogging.
Facebook becomes a superb fever now and I admit that. With all interesting features and chances to meet old friends (sometimes new friends), I could spend half-day in front of the PC with Facebook! And when it’s time to shut down the PC, I realized that I forgot to update even a single blog. And it’s too late to regret.
Yes, I’m a gamers but not the hardcore one. I love playing action and RPG games and sports, sometimes. The problem is playing games makes me forget about blogging. The only concern is how to finish the game or meeting some boss characters in the game levels. And again, it’s a regrettable moment when I closed the game and realized that – no blog had been updated on that day.
This is the common problem. And I believe that the ultimate way to solve it is by forcing myself to be hardworking. Put some efforts and passion and it works! (hopefully)
My current solution for these distractions is by closing other tabs and programs other than the one for blogging – admin panel, resources, etc. And I found it works effectively.
It seems I missed a lot of things. Time to get back on track!
