The key to being productive is setting goals for yourself. In fact, most leaders are task-oriented. Know your priorities in life, that means be able “to sort tasks, decide their importance and create a plan to complete those tasks is essential. When you prioritize tasks, try sorting them by order of urgency, effort required and deadline.”  Know your responsibilities in life, and be able to “communicate your plans and goals to team members, whether through email, one-on-one conversations or group meetings.”  And lastly, have some sort of strategy for accomplishing your goals in life, and if you are a leader “you must be able to implement processes that your team can understand and follow.”  Create a schedule for yourself, and if you are a leader, be able to help others follow a schedule too by “implement[ing] shared, interactive calendars and to-do lists and have employees submit regular process updates.”  As a blogger, you will experience plenty of moments where you feel compelled to campaign for yourself or others, feeling the sense of empowerment of having a following, and wanting to speak to everyone in a way to help change them, or share your viewpoints about the issues that you care about. Be careful not to become too opinionated, and lose your audience, over-caring about the times, and becoming so affected and emotional, that you yourself become unstable as the writer, always maintain some kind of balance, where your audience is not affected equally, by whats been bothering you, and if youre happy with the times, then say so, and if there is more that you can do to help others, then do so, that’s part of the creative process of establishing an identity for yourself as a blogger, its not quite the helping professions, but likewise you are there for others, and able to help them in ways that others have not yet been able to help them or get through to them, you are doing a service to your community, whether you know it or not, keep up the good work! As you develop as a blogger online its important to keep track of your progress, whether taking down notes daily, of your ideas, or simply logging in activities or tasks that you get done along the way, personally and professionally, that’s being organized about your time. Activecampaign.com suggests the following, “As thoughts arise during your work, jot them down. Once you reach a break in your work, you can come back and either tackle them or add them to your larger to-do list.”  To be well liked, and to earn a 5 out of 5 on a Facebook Page, you have to care about your audience, that goes without saying, and in order to care for anyone, you have to care well for yourself. Know that your health comes first, no matter how much you try to help others, you are always limited to sharing what you yourself have experienced first hand or learned about through school or continuing your education, not just by reading online, and summarizing the work of others, that wouldn’t be a blog, by citations only. Figure out what makes you unique to your audience, and keep doing what is working for you, as a writer, and make sure to continue to receive permissions along the way, that’s how to build partnerships, and to get into programs, by asking questions. I might not be in that phase yet, does shareasale.com count? Banners. I guess so. Never give up, as a blogger, much of what you learn is self-taught, that’s why its such a competitive profession, no one can really guide you through the process of establishing a blog, you may get pointers along the way, but its you that comes up with the content, make sure to do your best.
