Blogging: How to focus and not Get Distracted?

Now, there are many professional bloggers and some of them are very successful. I feel that my biggest challenge is that I need to overcome all the distractions and give my total attention to blogging. I have written about this matter earlier in this blog too. I feel that I have a number of things that I get distracted. Let me name some of them:
  1. Television
  2. Browsing Internet
  3. Reading Newspapers
  4. Going out of home

These are the four basic distractions I have. I know that they are not bad. Watching TV is not a bad thing. Browsing Internet is of course a very good thing. Reading newspapers help to remain updated about my country. I have to go out of home sometimes to do shopping or see others. This is something we all have to do. Well, the problem is that often I cannot find enough time for blogging. For example, today, I slept until noon and then at the evening, I felt so tired and slept again. In the afternoon I watched TV and at night I read newspapers and browsed Internet. So, I could hardly work today and it is now 3 AM. So, if I work now then tomorrow again I will feel sleepy.

I know that what I am doing is good as watching TV, reading newspapers and books and browsing Internet- all these works are making me a more knowledgeable person. It is valuable since blogging is based on knowledge. If you do not know then how you can blog. However, blogging is also something more. You have to write daily and write a lot. You have to write comments in other blogs. You should read some about blogging and SEO. Really, you should think of your blogs a lot throughout the day- everyday. Yes, it is a reality.

What I am doing is great but I guess that it is time I totally focus on blogging. If I could do it for the last one year then I could become very successful in blogging. After, I get a decent amount of success then I can surely again go back to reading newspapers, watching TV browsing other websites.

My problem is that by nature I am an encyclopedic person. I love to know about different topics and about different countries. Although I write about South Asia only, I love to know about the world. I know it is a great quality and very few people have such passion about the world like me but at the same time I have to focus on blogging at this moment. I can always come back to knowing the world but this the time I have to build a good profile for myself in the blogosphere.

If you are a newbie blogger and you have the same problem like me then I would strongly recommend you that you must take the problem very seriously. It’s not that I am a lazy person. I am indeed a very hardworking person with a lot of passion behind my work but I have spread myself too thin over many things in my career. I should only focus on my blogs and I just started this.

Hopefully, I would be able to continue my effort of focusing only on blogging for the next one year.

By the way, I wrote nearly 550 words in this entry withon just 15 minutes.
