A laptop on a wooden tableIn recent years, large number of net-savvy people has switched to professional blogging along with their regular day job. Unfortunately, a good percentage of them quit their blogging career in less than 6 months. Others do it at irregular pace slowly abandoning it completely. Only a handful of these people make it big and manage to make decent money out of it. If you're in the same league, you must prepare yourself to delicately balance your day job time and your blogging routine. Here are some of the tips that will help you in achieving success in blogging consistently along with your day job.

Make most out of your weekends - Weekends should be leveraged intelligently to get the maximum work done for the whole week. Write your best posts on weekends including miscellaneous tasks like theme tweaking, comment moderation, and networking. I generally use weekends to skim new ideas for posts and making final drafts for as many posts as I can.

Prepare rough drafts for the whole week - This is one of the best techniques to lower your burden for the whole week. Prepare the final drafts including the images to be used in the posts for the whole week. This saves your research time and you can get started in no time on a daily basis. These drafts ensure that you devote your weekdays only in writing the content, and that's what matters for your readers as well as for your successful blogging career.

Remove distractions - Remove your TV, music player and other consumer electronics goods from your room to increase your productivity. While writing the posts, log out from all your accounts, close the browser and use a minimal full-screen text editor to write efficiently without any distractions.

Prepare editorial calender -It is strongly advised to create a daily routine editorial calendar beforehand for the coming month. This enables you to plan ahead in time and in making desired changes in your day-to-day activities. Make sure you divide your work for each day clearly allocating each task for every single day in the editorial calendar.

Create a separate home office - Sometimes, people do the mistake of starting their blogging activities in their living room or a dining room in the presence of their family members. This results in poor productivity due to repetitive distractions. You must create a small home office in a separate room to get the look-n-feel of a professional environment. This greatly helps in increasing the productivity.
