More On Optimizing Your Reading Time

If you have taken my advice, you probably are now making use of a blog reader which will lessen the time that you spend looking at various different blogs. Another thing that I forgot to point out – a big advantage of using a blog reader is that you will not have to deal with slow load times that some blogs may have. Anyhow, what are other ways by which you can make the most out of your blog reading time?

Time management is the key. If you are like me, you sometimes find yourself too engrossed in reading other blogs and leaving comments that before you know it, hours have passed. Within those hours, you could have written posts for your own blogs! So how do you watch the time?

Be organized! Set a time limit wherein you will allow yourself to browse and read other blogs and sites. Say, an hour before you start creating your blog posts, you can start browsing and reading. Use an alarm clock to remind you that your hour is up and that you need to actually get some writing done. In this manner, you will be aware of the time and not let it go to “waste.”

Another tip would be to put your blogs on a schedule. This is particularly helpful if you follow many blogs – say like 20 or more. Naturally, you wouldn’t have enough hours in a day to read every single blog every single day. A good thing to do would be to schedule so and so blogs to be read on certain days of the week.
