How to Manage Your Time and Stay Motivated

We had a fantastic meeting of the Colorado Blogettes tonight at Boulder Digital Arts. We called it the CONTENT EXTRAVAGANZA, Part ONE!! And yes, you need to say it in a very excited voice with multiple exclamation points!

Instead of just having a single presenter for tonight’s meeting, I really wanted to hear from the Blogettes members about their best strategies for content creation and management. We had a lively and interesting talk, and I learned a lot!

I think one of the most interesting parts of the discussion was about managing time in order to write and publish on our blogs. We also touched on a parallel topic – staying motivated in our writing.

I gave the Blogettes an assignment at the end of the evening. I asked them to add a comment to this post and share their best blogging time management and motivation tips.

Okay, I’ll go first! My favorite way of staying motivated is to look at my Google Analytics numbers, and notice how much my traffic spikes on the day I write a new post or send out a newsletter (for my business, emailing out my weekly newsletter with top-quality content is just as important as writing new posts).

After looking at the traffics spikes,  I then take a look at how low traffic dips in between posts. It’s clear that my readers are just waiting for me to write new stuff so they can read it – they WANT to hear from me! A few weeks ago, I even printed out a screen shot of my traffic stats and hung it over my desk, so my motivation is right there at eye level.

I say it to my classes all the time – the more you write, the more traffic you will get. If you write it, they will come! That’s the best motivation I know.

What are your best tips for staying motivated and/or finding time to write? If you’re not a Colorado Blogettes member, we’re still love to hear from you! Leave a comment below and share your ideas and tips with everyone.
