1. Write blog daily –
I did not say post blog daily. Blog writing can be done every day. Even if your schedule is too tight, find 10 minutes at least to write a blog somehow.
You don’t need a laptop to write some blog on a topic. Mobile is best blog writing tool for bloggers. I am sure where ever you go your mobile go with you. I am sure you do have gmail as well in your mobile.
Write a blog using gmail. Just compose a mail, Type in the topic of the blog in subject. And write mail in body area of the mail. Save it & Post from your PC whenever you have time at home. Publish the blog using a PC far better as you have have to work on On-page search engine optimization as well.
But ensure to write few lines daily. This will ensure that your typing and writing skill get developed time to time. Very soon you would be able to write much faster.

Time is not in your control all the time. It is wasted when we wait for others in our day to life. Time passes very slow when we wait.
Your journey to become a successful blogger with full time job depends on how you utilise your precious time.
Utilise this waiting time in writing a blog post. You will realised that some of your best blogs are written when you were actually waiting for someone. It works. Try it.
3. Write blog while traveling –
Not meant for traveling with family. But if your are in business trips, travelling can give a lot of time to write a blog.
Many of us travel far enough to go to office daily. If you use public transport like metro then this traveling time can be used to write a blog post using mobile.
Time is an asset in the blogging journey. You have to make more time every day.
4. Take help from wife or close friend –
If you have some close friend or wife who can give you some time then take their help in collecting some information like data about the topic. This will save your own time on research.
5. The 80:20 rule of blog writing –
No one becomes a successful blogger by only doing SEO and marketing of fewer blog post.
6. Designing is worst form of wasting time for bloggers-
Mind it, New bloggers become self content by changing designs, themes and structure again and again. Do not waste your time in designing or changing theme again & again. It’s a killer habit for bloggers.

Read article from successful bloggers at least one in a day. It would keep you motivated and teach you lots of tips & tricks for free.
Sharing is the best thing I like about blogging community.

It will save you lots of time as you will not have to give more time to find new topics for your blogs. It has worked for me.
Tip– Gmail app is the best place to write and save any blog post when you are in hurry.
9. Set Target for blogging –
The most successful bloggers in the world are the busiest person on earth as thousands of person from media houses, blog commentators, affiliates and hosting company are communicating to them. Yet they are able to write and maintain a healthy level of blog post inflow.
Create a habit of setting soft or hard target to write number of blog post every week.
