Do you have control over your blog…

Do you have control over your blog or does your blog control you, If you have a blog just for personal use as a journal and just spend a couple of hours a week on it posting your weekly activity then i suppose you have control over it, however if you have a blog with the intention of monetizing from it then this would be another story, your blog may not only have control over you but also stress you out a little.

Yes, i know because i have been there, and i also know how to get over it.

Having a blog with the intention of monetizing from it requires:

  • Having to research/post every so often some good content to attract readers.
  • Having to drive tons of traffic to it by sharing your posts.
  • Having to create a nice looking blog with some sort of optin
  • Having to create ads,product reviews etc.
  • Having to update your blogs status plus much more.

Sad situation to find yourself in i suppose, however if you are running a business and your blog is like your main hub in the business then it is normal having to spend hours and hours just updating your blogs status, however having to spend hours updating your blogs status and having to refrain from your families activities is even worse.


  • You sacrifice yourself and do the work late nights when family sleeping.
  • You outsource the work.
  • Do it from your iphone, ipad, or any other available gadget whilst out with the family.

My option was the first one, not that i wanted to do this at nights however after my daily work routine i spent time with my family and very late at night i concentrated on my blog, at that was my blogging process day after day.(Who ever wants something he has to sacrifice something, so i sacrificed my sleep).

Do you have control over your blog…

Not easy task i suppose however because i did not have the money to outsource i had no other option.

Others might think of it some different way which i respect, they sacrifice quality time with their families and spend it on their blogs so they can accelerate their business and like this spend quality time with their families when they achieve their desired success.

Now if your blog is successful you also have to consider that perhaps involves more input such as:

  • More fresh content.
  • More Sharing.
  • More comments to moderate and reply.
  • Plus much other aspects that it may incur.

Now my question to you is, what other way do you do it?

Do you have any other resources or ways to fulfill the tasks your blog requires?

How do you manage time?

Please give us your views, do you control your blog or does your blog have control over your life?
