So, let's get started and see how we can make the most out of our spare time while doing a full-time day job. It's not that hard as you'll see in the guidelines and suggestions given below. So, here we go!

Make the 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 make 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 daily.

These drafts ensure that you devote your weekdays only to 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 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 in time and in making desired changes in your day-to-day activities.

Make sure you divide your work for each day 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 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 productivity.
