Step 9: Creating a Realistic Schedule

As you get into the routine of writing new content for your site, you’ll quickly get a sense for what is and is not a realistic schedule for you to follow.

Whatever your schedule is, be it 1 post a week or 1 a day, getting into a consistent routine is important to indicate to the search engines that you’re open and ready for business.

It’s better to consistently produce fews pages of content than to sporadically produce multiple pages or posts, and then not publish anything for weeks at a time.

So, whether you have 4 hours a week or 40, find the routine that works for you.

You can see my example 6 week schedule for success in this post.

For new bloggers, I recommend starting with a goal of 3 posts a week. If you find that’s a manageable number, then gradually increase your goal. Otherwise, you can cut back your efforts according to your own schedule.

This ability to fit your blog work into your own personal availability is one of my favorite characteristics of running a web business.

Step 10: Improving Your Skills

If you’re serious about learning how to earn money from blogging then it’s essential that you invest in a solid program to improve your blogging skills and knowledge of how online marketing works.

If you’re a complete beginner, I recommend following a comprehensive course, like the one provided by Wealthy Affiliate or Affilorama.

If you’ve worked in online marketing before, it’s still a good idea to pick a few skill areas you’d like to improve. Platforms like Udemy are best for this, since you can hone in on exactly the skill set you need to learn more about.
