BT: Answer me this: The Purpose of WP + Time spent on WP.

First of all, I apologize for this post being late. Last week (2nd Tuesday of the month), I woke up and realized that the post was due. There was no way I could publish it on time. Thank you for patiently waiting until now.

Today, I present to you the 7th episode of the Blogging Tips.

If you have missed the previous ones, or just want to refresh your memory, feel free to check out:

JANUARY – rules; an introduction

FEBRUARY – tells you how to get the most comments.

MARCH – gives you tips on how to promote your content.

APRIL – gives great advice to newbies and reminds us of the basics.

MAY – reveals what to do to gain a following and what not to do if you do not want to lose the audience you already have.

JUNE – showcases the most popular niches if you are trying to pick one for yourself, or if you are looking to re-brand.

I hope you find some things there that will help you make your blogging world a better place.

June’s question:

What do you use WordPress (or whichever other blogging platforms) for?

OUR answers:

  1. We spend most of our time here reading (vs. writing).
  2. No one writes to kill time, but a few people read to kill time.
  3. To my surprise, most of the respondents are not thinking of WP as a platform for future sales.
  4. Attracting like-minded people with our writing is low on the list of priorities, but connecting with other bloggers through THEIR writing is of the utmost importance.
  5. The main reason for writing is to release our thoughts and emotions, closely followed by writing in order to share our knowledge on specific subjects.
  6. The results for learning something new and finding inspiration are comparable among the reasons given for reading other blogs.
  7. To me, practicing writing is a big reason for my blogging. Apparently, that is not really the case for others. Kudos to you for already being great at what you do!

July’s question:

On average, how much time do you spend on WordPress every day? (If you do not visit WP daily, please specify what time period your time spent relates to. Example: 3h/ week; mainly on the weekends.)

  1. Well… I know that this is only a temporary post. But I did go through the posts of your earlier months…. And some of the tips there sound really useful. Especially the ones on the comment section. And I guess that’s the reason why I am commenting 😅

    You are doing a great job sharing all this with us. Thank you! 😊

  2. Hard to say for sure. I usually post once a week and try to catch up to the blogs on that day. but It’s been a while since I can manage it all on the same day, so I continue catching up the next day. and then sometimes, a day before the next post is due, I go back and catch up with the blogs I missed on those 2 days. So I’d say 2 days a week, sometimes 2 1/2.

  3. 🙂 Honestly, I have never measured the amount of time that I spend on WordPress on a daily basis. But, if I were to make an educated guess, I would have to say, “Approximately, one and a half hours.” That time would be divided into numerous visits, of course.

    Now, even though I publish content on my blog on a weekly basis, I believe that it is important to interact with many of my fellow bloggers as possible.

    Have a splendid month of July, Goldie!

  4. I typically spend between 30-60 minutes on WP each day, depending on how busy my Reader is and how much I’m commenting/responding to comments, though I usually spend about 2-3 hours on WP on Sundays, when I prep my posts for the week (except for my selfies post, which builds throughout the week as I take the photos before posting on Saturday AMs.

  5. Eh… My time management is terrible; I’m very easily distracted. Getting lost in reveries, music — that kind of thing. I’ve spent up to six hours “blogging” before. My average I think is something like 3-4. Which is awful, because I only actively read a handful of blogs, write one relatively short poem, and I still manage to take hours.

    And personally, I don’t think it’s that we believe we’re already good at writing. It’s just… “Practicing” your writing suggests that you’re improving it for something, which as this post seems to show, isn’t really the point for most of us.

  6. I probably spend about 1-2 hours a week on WP. There’s no routine for me, but rather just getting on when I have a chance to sit and read without too many distractions. The time spent is usually late-night, or as I sit and eat my lunch at the various locations my work takes me.

  7. I don’t have a specific amount of time that I schedule or commit to reading and writing. It depends on what other thing are going on that day that take priority. My guess would be 1-3 hours. This changes with the seasons though. It certainly increase in winter when I am indoors most of the time.
