8 Important Advice For Professional Bloggers

Advice For Professional Bloggers

Being a professional blogger have it’s own perks, and one of the biggest one is you are your own boss. That means, no 9-6 office, you work whenever you want and however you want. Everything is magical about blogging, but at the same time it comes with few problems.

Especially when you are blogging alone for long, you crave for social-interaction. So it’s important for you to go out, and meet people. You can do that by:

  • Working from cafe
  • Attending blogging events
  • Attending Workshop or networking events

The point is, don’t let freedom of blogging become your own enemy. I’m sharing few tips that I follow to ensure I don’t burn out with the pressure of blogging. This is very important, as we are living in the world of information overload, and it could take away peace of your mind.

Take regular break between work

Taking breaks between work in very necessary to save your eyes from the computer. It also refreshes your mind and you easily ready to do your remaining work with energy. For example, take a two minutes break after working half an hour and take 10 minutes break after working an hour. Don’t try to work continuously.

Work in proper light

Most of the bloggers ignore the lightning condition. Few of them work in the dark room which is overkill for your eyes. The brightness of computer screen effects our eyes badly. Try to make a balance between computer brightness and room light. Try to work in natural light by opening windows of your room.

Blink Your Eyes

Try to blink your eyes as much as you can. Working more than 10 hours daily causes dryness of eyes. Blinking helps them get wet. It is medically approved that blinking eyes can cause wetness. You can also use soft eye drops. You should consult a good eye specialist time to time.

Make a work environment

If you are working in the office, then you don’t face too much problem because office environment is good for work. But if you are working from home then you have to create a working environment. You should keep away yourself from your kids and home life till you are working.

Remove all fuddle

Try to make your room environment working. Don’t jumble up your home life with your professional life. If any distracting element present in your room, try to remove it out. Try to clean your room and make it work friendly.

Install a board

Install a whiteboard to plan all the further events. Note down all the important things you have to do in coming week or month. Try to make a to do list on this board. This board can also used as a presentation board to explain any complicated things to your clients.

Keep your mobile away from you

This is important when you are in writing mode. A ring on the phone or push notifications will break your concentration. One practice that I follow is to disable Push notification on my phone. They are handy but since we are so active on social media, it could be very distracting.

These are the basic advice for you as a blogger or for a professional blogger. Now it’s your turn. If you want to give any important advice for professional bloggers, mention it on a comment section.

    Nice post dude. I think you follow each one of them.

    I agree with you on the board thing. It is so easy to get diverted when you are on your online ventures.

    Love the idea of installing a board. I have little pieces of paper and envelopes lying around with notes all over them. This is a fantastic idea that I will try. Great post

    I had some problem in eyes before, now its cured i think… :-)

    My suggestion is don’t sit long hours before PC…in between gaps wash your eyes with water, see the distance object, do some simple exercise for your eyes, drink water more..
