Difficulties I Am Facing As a Part-Time Blogger

by Firas Steitiyeh on February 16, 2010

As most of you know, I am planning to take my blog to the next level and generate full income from it or at least from my online presence/connections. I have to agree that in order to take it to the next level I need to dedicate time for it and commit and honestly this is appearing to be very difficult with my current situation, since I am a full-timer and sometimes I need to stay late at work and I have some other responsibilities alongside that as well. Having said all of this, I will still try hard and do my best to make it happen and quit my 9-5 job just for the sake of this blog!

Being a full-timer doesn’t give me the chance to dedicate time for my blog which I can’t do anything about at the moment, but I am really working my A#$ off to have it done so I can push more quality content into it, engage more with my readers and create better presence. I think the most important thing in a blogger’s journey is time and everything related to it. We are talking about time management, time dedication, prioritization, and getting your tasks done in the least possible time. Basically bloggers should know how to utilize their time, specially ones who have other full-time jobs and think of taking their blogs to the next level.

At the same time, I am currently taking good amount of WordPress development projects and I am being paid for them, which comes under the point mentioned above “monetizing my online presence”. I also write for different blogs and provide support and consultation services to some friends and clients. Yeah, I do all of that at the same time. This might be normal for you and it might be a “WOW” factor, I am not complaining about the situation; in the contrary I am so liking it. The learning curve you go through in such situations really add more and more to your horizon and especially when it comes to time management.

What am I planning to do?

Honestly speaking, I have a plan that will take time right after Q1 ends, where I will be dedicating time for my blog and you will be feeling it. I will also be publishing my e-book, this should take place within Q2 if I was lucky enough in getting things done. Very soon I will be publishing a new page that will contain guest posts restrictions and I will be accepting guest posts from everybody who writes anything related to the topic of SteitBlog.

I felt like sharing this with you, just to let all bloggers (specially new ones) know that they should never give up. Keep trying, insist and set clear goals which you want to achieve! You will do it!
