I’m getting curiouser and and curiouser about people’s blogging habits and I have to say that I learned a huge amount from my last foray into this territory which related to Following. So, I’d be delighted if you would be sweet and kind enough to share your experiences about the amount of time that you spend in blogland.
Here are the key questions that interest me:
1. How much time do you spend in blogland in an average week?
2. How much time did you spend in blogland last week?
2. How does that time divide in % terms re:
a. Writing Posts
b. Reading Posts
c. Interacting through comments
d. Working on your Site’s Appearance
e. Other/Please Specify!
3. Do you allocate specific time slots in your day/week for Blogging?
I pilotted this little questionnaire on myself and reckon that I spend about 16-18 hours in an average week on blogging. Last week was a pretty typical week in blogging terms.
It looks like I spend about 40% of the time writing posts; 30% reading other blogs; 19% interacting through comments; 1% at other stuff, like investigating widgets!!!
I don’t have a very fixed routine for blogging activities but tend to deal with most email alerts re blogs early in the morning. Having said that, if I see that a blog is long and will require serious thought re comment, I put it aside for another time and refuse to delete it from my inbox until I’ve dealt with it.
Very much looking forward to your responses. (By the way, I didn’t use the Poll option as it didn’t seem to accommodate what I wanted to ask in the way I wanted to ask it!)
