I am obsessed with not wasting time and being as productive as I can.
After all, my income is directly linked to my ability to produce quality work at a rapid rate.
This November will mark the 3-year anniversary of the launch of this blog, and the experience has led me to Bly’s Theory of Blogging and Personal Productivity, which states:
“Personal productivity is inversely proportional to time spent blogging.”
Is blogging fun? Yes.
Intellectually stimulating? Can be.
Useful? Opinions vary.
But the more time you spend blogging, the less work you get done.
This leads me to Bly’s Rule of Blogging Time, which states:
“Anyone who blogs more than 10 minutes a day — or more than an hour a week — is spending way too much time reading and writing on blogs.”
What’s your reaction to my Theory and Rule of blogging?
Can one spend too much time — or conversely, too little time — in the blogosphere?
How many hours a week do YOU spend blogging — both writing your own blog, responding to comments on your blog, and participating in discussions on other people’s blogs?
And really, you do it for fun, perhaps for research, or to establish yourself as a thought leader …
But you don’t think blogging is the new Marketing Miracle that’s going to Change the Face of Business As We Know It, right?
