I don’t know if you guys find the time (I mean literally the time!) relevant. I’ve always been very active during the night. I’m a night owl so to speak. So from the very beginning, I’d set my blogging routine at nights—usually before I sleep. I know being in front of the computer is counterproductive with study shows that if you’re expose to tech before you sleep, chances are, well, you can’t sleep.
I always have problems sleeping early. In effect, I became infamous for being late comer (my motto was: “is better than absent!”). My classmates & co-workers knew this problem of mine. One time my classmate saw me walking nonchalantly, not caring if my professor will scold me (he didn’t btw) while she was already worried of being late. She remarked that she knew was officially late because she was with me! (I wasn’t offended because that was true). Numerous times my friends deceived me of the real meeting time (if by chance I need to be on time, I can do it though—I’m quite immature when I’m the one who needs to wait.). My problems lie with me at night. For some reason my brain is just very active at night.
99% of blog topics came when I was about to sleep. But I sometimes blog at mornings or early afternoons. But that’s super rare for me. And if that is I have nothing else to do (or if I’m excited with topic I was going to post). My schedule before allowed me to go home early so my afternoon was spent guess what—napping. For some reason afternoons can make me sleep. Especially right now that I’m old & can’t function properly with less than 7 hours of sleep (I’m cranky old woman if this happens). So I do it at night. Since to be quite honest, I don’t have a night life—or you can consider this my night life.
The thing is, I also blog very fast. I told you before I don’t spent a lot of time blogging. An hour or so (preparation already in it) is adequate time for me. It’s quite simple when all I do is write my thoughts. Because if I have something to say, it easy to pour the words in. It doesn’t have to take so much of my time when I know I have so much to say. 15 minutes is enough—then again I never bothered proofreading (don’t follow my act, in this regard I’m quite a slob). Writing is easy; all I need to do is be myself.
With me now doing some scheduling –and by scheduling I meant writing topics, or the blog post beforehand, has proved to be efficient. Now I spent lesser time than before. So blogging at night doesn’t have to be long or tedious task. It comes naturally now (I mean 6 years continuously doing it meant I’m comfortable handling the rein by now). Plus, night is when everything is quiet, cooler and steady. I love the atmosphere during the night. So I do my blogging at night!
How about you? What time of the day do you blog? Or are you the sporadic type? Care to share it with me!
