It happened. Three days ago, my laptop crashed. I went into panic mode. What will I do? How will I work? How will I live? Ihave never had a problem having access at my finger tips until now. I must admit the dreaded crash as allowed me to view things differently. I was spending too much time at the computer. It's crazy but I have more energy now and I'm not blogging in my sleep. I think I'm going to live!
Here are a few things that you can do to help you feel better while blogging!!!
Blog Once A Day-
Yes, I know it hurts but you'll be okay. You're going to make it. Remember it's QUALITY not QUANITY!
Do Not Check E-Mail First Thing In The Morning-
Yes, it might be hard at first but you must use the force, grasshopper! Don't go straight to your e-mail in the morning. Try to get at least two tasks done before you go get your blog on!
Do Not Blog/E-Mail Right Before You Go To Bed
I've read in several places that the computer can cause stress. Do not get on the computer before you go to bed. You will have trouble going to sleep. You need to give yourself time to wind down.
Do Not Sit In Front Of The Computer All Day
Get up and be productive. Try to add a work-out to your day. I've heard blogging 24/7 might cause bloggers butt.
Set A Certain Amount of Time To Be On The Computer
Jus like you have a work schedule, set a computer schedule. Set a time to be on and a time to get off and stick to it!!
Get A Life
This is a hard one. Blogging is so easy to get wrapped up in you can easily forget about the outside world. Get out of the house/office. Go get some fresh air. You'll be glad you did.
