Don’t Be Lazy: 9 Ways to Blog Smarter and Harder

Profile photo of Riza Submitted by Riza June 19, 2013 Website:

I’ve been writing this post for three years. What can I say? I’m lazy.
Or I should say, I used to be lazy.

That’s not the case anymore. Four years ago, my brother and I started taking our writing career seriously. I now write. A lot. On my days off from work, I regularly put in over ten hour days, just writing, editing and re-writing. I’ve learned how to work, both smarter and harder. You can too.

(Finally, an admission: though I wrote down an outline for this post three years ago, I resuscitated this idea for today’s post a few weeks ago.)
Tip 1: Forget the “To Do” List. Use Next Actions.

“To do” lists don’t work because most people include “do’s” like “write a novel”, “pay bills” or “find web hosting”. I know, because that’s what I used to do.

    I agree with the point on Monotask. It is impossible to do two things at once hence blogging requires concentration of particular task part time. More so, there should be prioritization of any task to be carried carried out.

    That said, this is a very good piece!
