Blogging ain’t an easy job. Back one year we asked you how much time do you spend writing an article and most of you said us that you spend less than a hour in writing normal posts but spend at least a hour or more in writing killer posts. Writing three to four killers a week is a considerably great idea. Friends pinging you to chat, twitter mentions and the Facebook notifications can distract you a lot more than offline distraction. Here is a list of how to avoid distractions, both online and offline.
How to avoid distractions while writing killer posts?
- Sit in a distraction-free room where nobody calls you or disturbs you. A sound-proof room would be a great Idea. 😛
- A good environment around your PC – A comfortable chair to sit on, A cool and dry atmosphere where both your PC and yourself are in the productive most.
- Saved the best for the last: Wear a headphone, Switch on some rock music and keep the volume maximum. You are now ultimately on the virtual world, literally!
- Go invisible: I know Chethan Thimmappa, Harsh Agarwal and many other Bloggers who go invisible when writing posts. This is pretty much effective, non-geeks doesn’t attempt to chat with you when you are shown as offline.
- Go offline: Some situations do occur when people ping you even if you are invisible and seem to be offline. At such situations, Going offline in your Facebook/Gtalk/AIM messenger is the only way to get out of disturbances and distractions.
- Turn off notifications: If you have a desktop-based application like TweetDeck, Digsby, or any other such program disable notifications so that you don’t get to see irritating pop-ups.
- Don’t add unwanted contacts or friends: There are some spammy people revolving round the internet who not only frustrates you online but a few contacts find personal details like Mobile number and cause you great trouble. Hence, it is always recommended not to add unwanted, spammy contacts to your friend list.
