The Key thing to Life, Is to Balance! That’s right! Balance and the right attitude towards life is very important for keeping up with your career and passion such as blogging! Sometimes the students can come across great problems when it comes about finding the right balance between their Studies and Blogging or Socializing on Social Networks! Even I have seen my self struggling while keeping the balance and getting on to my schedules to complete my assignments and getting ready for the exams in my college life! But with time, Blogging has taught me many things and Balancing is one of those aspects!

Blogging in College

So how to be consistent, how to have an “Always-on Career” lifestyle and at the same time finding time to enjoy the life to the full or at least do the things which you love to!! Below are some of the points which you can practice in your life for getting the perfect results both in Blogging and your Academic Life.

1- Atittude Creates the Difference!

Your Attitude decides your Altitude Yes! It really makes the difference and it’s very important for you to be flexible and to be strong in life for making the right (sometimes hard) decisions! Blogging, for me, is more than a passion, I really love blogging! So what made me limit it? That’s where your Attitude comes…

2- Kick it, Say NO!

You have to be honest with yourself and you have to clear your mind for staying on your plans for achieving your long term goals! So it’s time now to learn to say the simple yet powerful word, “NO!” And it really works, when ever the blogging beast inside me starts tempting me while I’m on my work, I reply “NO!” with force and it works… :)

3- Staying Organized

The best thing that you can do to stay balanced is to stay organized! Never, ever leave your assignments or work in pending. Stay up to  the mark, stick to your schedule and prioritize your work! While prioritizing your day plans remember one thing, “Tasks and Assignments first than blogging!” This is what you really need to do for finding the balance!

4- Plan Your Day

If you’ve got an iPhone or an Android, you can find applications that will help you in creating a day plan. When in class, the first thing which you need to do is to figure out the most important tasks i.e tests and assignments. Than starting planning for your day and get stuck to it! Go home starting working on, get your work done!

Sometimes, it’s really hard to find time to write up blog posts, so if you are busy with your college work, skip blogging for that day. This might sound terrible but any way, you gotta do it for being progressive!

5- Write Scheduled Posts

We have to be progressive in terms of blogging and loyal to your readers [now this is balancing] . So the best thing which you can do is to write scheduled posts, I mean whenever you get some time, log in to your WordPress Blog and start writing! Write as much as you can and schedule your posts.

By scheduling your posts, you will find some relaxation and of course, your SEO and Readership won’t get hurt…

So these were the 5 important points that students have to consider while trying to find that “Perfect Balance” in their life. Once you’ll find that perfect balance, than you can easily achieve your long term goals! Got the momentum? Just keep it going and remember one thing, “Be Optimistic and Stay Energized!” :D

    One of the best articles I have read ever. Well, If I am studying in a college now, I will surely focus on all the points you’ve mentioned here. But I am out now and I am a pro. So, I am out of this blogging vs college debate. Anyways, Thanks for sharing an useful post.
