Top Time Savers for Social Media and Blogging
by Elizabeth S. Craig, @elizabethscraig
The biggest complaint I hear from writers is that there aren’t enough hours in the day to do all that we need to do.
Tasks facing writers include reading publishing-related news, doing research, promoting, updating websites and social media…on top of working on our books.
And most everyone is doing the above in addition to a day job, parenting, or caregiving.
It’s a lot, for sure. The only thing that I can recommend is that we save time where we can.
With that in mind, I’m sharing my own biggest ways of saving time. With these methods I give myself more time to do…whatever. It could be more time to write, more time to do housework/cook/run errands, more time to spend with my family.
I started to include all of my tips in one post, but realized it was far too long for a post. I’ve divided them up by category: social media and blogging, writing, book production, and general tips. I’ll run this series on Fridays for the next month.
It’s commonly referred to as a time suck and it certainly can be. For this reason, I keep myself off of social media as much as I can. If I spent as much time on Twitter as I appear to, I’d never get anything done.
