Now, we know that many bloggers blog for money. Actually, how much time you need to spend for a blog? Is it one hours sufficient or you need 10 hours? The answer is all depending on the commitment to your blog. Writing a 400 words quality post might take up to 2 hours or more. Submitting the blog post to social bookmarking site might take few hours. Of course, if you only concentrate on top 10 social media like digg, buzz, stumble upon, etc is a different story. Remember, there are more than 160 social media sites out there. Submitting to all of this sites might take a few hours. Check out SocialPoster that helped me to submit over 70 bookmarking site in one hour.
Let say, you want the max and want to submit to all 160 social media sites. That might take at least 3 hours for one blog post. That is a total of 5 hours for writing a post and submitting to social media. How about link building activity? Link building is another important sector that all bloggers need to take care after the content. It might take few minutes or few hours depending on how much backlinks you want. Human born with a big hole in our heart. How much backlinks is considered too much? The more backlinks, the better for its SEO. Let’s say you start commenting and active in forum (advertise your blog from the signature link) for another one or two hours. That already take 8 hours of workload.
What about advertisements management, blog design, plugin upgrade, answering your blog commentators, updating blog functions, troubleshooting any problems, etc. The whole day is not enough to just maintain one blog with average of one post per day. Basically, I don’t spend that much time blogging. I got another world that is more attractive to enjoy. Family, tv couch, gym, swimming pool, gathering with old friends, chit chatting about nonsense things, etc.
I spend about 3 – 4 hours a day for this blog. How much time do you spend for your blog?
