Do You Have a Better Time of Year to Work More on Your Blog?

You’ll hear a lot about people talking about their best time of day to blog. The time of day when they find they are most productive(I’m still trying to find my “best” time). If they are lucky they have that time free from their job so they can use it on their blog.

Is it also possible there is a best time of year for each person to be more productive on their blog?

I know when I look at my year for blogging that winter tends to be my most productive time, while I find Summer to be much harder to get to my blog.

Summer just tends to be a busier time. There are more family events to get to. There is outside work that needs to be kept up with. There is just the need to get outside and enjoy the nice weather.

Winter is often much less active since we tend to be indoors more.

How can knowing your best blogging time of year help you be more productive on your blog?

It gives you the chance to plan your work in a way that will allow you to work smarter for your blog.

When you have more time to devote to your blog you can do blog tasks like:

  • Plan out a content calendar for your blog, social media, or email list. You can do it for the quarter or even the year.
  • Write blog posts to schedule for posting during the time you have less time to work on your blog.
  • Make social media posts for those blog posts to schedule when the blog posts are published
  • Research and put together some email list opt-ins ahead of those busy times.

It’s the time to do some of those more involved tasks either to get things done now or to work ahead so you have less to do in the busier times.

Then when you are in that busy time of the year some blog tasks you can work on are:

  • Promote blog posts both newer and older posts.
  • Work on updating old posts
  • Making round-up posts for your blog posts
  • Make new pins to pin for your old posts

It’s a great time to do tasks that you can do in shorter amounts of time.

When you’re trying to be productive with less time, it pays to be aware of when you have more and less time to devote to your blog so you can plan your tasks accordingly and keep your blog moving ahead.

What time of year are you able to give your blog more attention?

  1. I find winter easier to work on the blog also. More nesting and less expectations to be out and about. Agree getting ahead with blog posts when we have more time. I also find if I schedule time like Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 8:30 writing and treat it as if I paid for a class works.

    • That is a good tip to make sure you stay productive during your scheduled time Amelia! I get so easily distracted even during my scheduled time. I’m going to have to try it.

  2. This gave me a lot of good ideas for ways to work on my blog when I’m busy with other things. I haven’t been blogging long, but it seems summer is harder to get things done because it’s so nice outside.

    • Glad you found it helpful Samantha! We deserve to enjoy the nice weather because we need that work/life balance so changing things up a little bit can let us do that.
