Blogging - A Job that Never Ends

Miscellaneous Blog Tips 8 comments

Sydney-Harbor-Bridge-1Driving across the Sydney Harbor Bridge on the way to the airport on a recent trip my taxi driver decided to give me a trivia lesson on the bridge. One of the statistics he recited was about painting the bridge - a job not for the feint hearted. It takes 80,000 litres (21,000 gallons) of grey paint and is an an endless task. As soon as they get to one end of the bridge they start again at the other.

Some days this is how I feel when it comes to blogging. There is an endless source of news, stories, tips and links to post on any given day. My goal each day is to clear my News Aggregator (Bloglines) of unread items. This is no easy task as I’m tracking 391 feeds in the search for quality content for my blogs. I do tend to scan more than I read word for word - however I like to do a pretty comprehensive job which takes time.

I get to the end of most days and have a similar feeling to the bridge painters in Sydney as I click the last ‘unread’ feed or folder - only to refresh the page and find more. A never ending task in a sense - but a satisfying feeling for that split second each day when its a fully read feed list.

A number of readers have expressed to me their frustration with this aspect of blogging - sometimes it can all seem rather overwhelming. I usually respond with some advice that my Dad used to give me when I felt overwhelmed by my studies:

One bite sized step at a time.

It sounds pretty basic advice - in fact it is - however my Dad is a wise man (despite his ignorance about blogging) and knows that a lot can be achieved if you break things down into achievable small tasks. In fact this advice is especially pertinent for bloggers as there are a number of bite sized steps you can take each day (or week - depending upon your schedule).

I recommend you set yourself some goals in some of the following areas:

• posting - whether its one post per week, day or even hour - a posting goal can help you be consistent with your posting. Make it an achievable number of posts per week - if you’re new to blogging start with 3 or 4 posts per week (per blog) - and as you get into the rhythm slowly increase your posting levels.

• sources - following other blogs, websites, newspapers, podcasts, magazines etc is an important part of most blogger’s work flows. News Aggregators are one way to help you achieve these goals.

• comments - its not all about you or your blog/s. One of the keys to successful blogging is interacting with others. One measurable way you can do this is by leaving comments on other blogs. Of course I’m talking here about genuine comments - spam comments are not the go.

• relationships - similarly I think its very important to build relationships with other bloggers. Whilst setting a target for how many other bloggers you want to email or chat with each day might be a bit artificial - I think its worth making an effort with this as such relationships can be very important to longevity in blogging.

• new blogs - whilst having more than blog is not for everyone - its an obvious way to grow your blogging income. If you want to grow via this method - set yourself a goal or deadline for when you want to launch your next blog and set out some achievable strategies for doing that.

Ok - perhaps I’ve just overwhelmed you all again with the vast array of goals that you need to set - but keep in mind that some of these goals might be less formal than others. Start out with a handful of achievable goals and build them as you’re able.

Lastly - don’t give up, inject a bit of fun into your blogging and don’t take it all too seriously.

  • I don’t envy you tracking that many RSS feeds. I also use Bloglines, it’s not perfect but it’s the best free tool out there.Breaking your work down into bitesize chunks is good advice I do try to follow, although it can be tedious having to plan what you are ment to be doing.

  • With tracking that many feeds, it proves how important titles and excerpts (or the first few words / paragraph) are for people who scan to include content in their own blog. It just isn’t possible to read every post, and so quality writing could go unnoticed if the title isn’t quite right.

    I liken it a bit to sending your resume to an employer who has received 500+ such documents. They can’t read every one, something must make you stand out - but then, after that, you must have the content to back it up.

    Gimmicks are OK to grab some attention, but content has to follow.

    I get frustrated when some big job or unforeseen obstacle comes along and I can’t spend as much time blogging. I try to stay positive - it could be something really unique to blog about.

  • I started my new blog one week ago. Worked hard, finally got tired, came here read many of your posts. They all inspired me. Among them l I like the “comments” and “relationships” the most.
    They are the very reasons why blogging can be both fun and profitable, I think.

  • wise words Andy - scanning is the way most of us read online - headings, sub headings, opening statements etc are so important

    Ryen - welcome to enternetusers - I hope you enjoy your stay and feel free to contribute to the many discussions going on through this blog.

  • Just started using Bloglines and while I do appreciate your words, I’m still grateful that I cut down the time I spend with the 93 blogs on my list. This is a darn sight better than clicking on each link, hoping for new content.

    If you’re open to suggestions, I’d like to read more ideas about building relationships. I’m wary of sending e-mails because I understand their POV that they don’t need *another* correspondent in their life, so what’s acceptible behavior and what’s not?

  • Bloglines is a definite godsend. It in itself can also be a great organiser - I have all of the feeds I follow filed under the ‘type’ of blog that it is. So if I’m particularly looking for info on one topic (say, jewellery), I just go to that folder and look through those blogs rather than trying to wade through everything.

  • Usually folks like me who run Linux don’t get to use the hottest new software, but in this case we do. Akregator is a RSS aggregator that’s become a tool I use as much as a browser. So if you already use Linux, I recommend it (but I don’t imagine anyone will make the switch just for one program).
