5 Common Distractions In Blogging

If you are really serious about blogging you may have tried your own capacity in measuring how many articles you could write and accomplish for publication in a day. If you did try that for awhile you will realize that you won’t get far making a single article if you don’t stay focused.

1. Online distractions - The worldwide web is a haven of distractions and if you give in to stimulations that catch your eyes’ attention brought by anything that pops-up on your browser you will realize that you couldn’t get far enough staying online for a single purpose, blogging.

2. Subject distractions – Choosing a topic to write and having the enthusiasm to get on with writing it to the last conclusive sentence is another thing. As you go along writing and searching online for further reference, it could lead you to other promising topics and if you are lured to start with another topic to write leaving the original subject you started, you will later realize that you have made promising articles to write with introductions done but lacking the content and conclusion.

3. Venue distractions – Are you able to write in a noisy environment or in a quiet place? We may not know it but our habit of bombarding our senses with too much stimulations while we are submitting ourselves to write an article actually places our sense of focus away from the activity at hand. Writing while watching TV or listening to music could be beneficial to others but may not work for some. In some instances, you may try writing outside of your room in a park or in an open space outdoors and consider if the change in venue could speed up or slow down your writing skills.

4. Health distractions - Writing while having a headache, stomachache or toothache may work for some but not to others. It is best to write while one is at the best of health but if sickness couldn't be avoided, then the mind maybe trained to get used to it. Lack of sleep is another thing. Trying to focus the mind to think while the eyes couldn't hold on to keep it open could be a big problem. Plenty of sleep would be advisable before facing the computer to write or if one could take the risk of drinking strong coffee to keep himself awake. Taking a bath is also a great idea to speed up one's thinking and to keep one's mind fully awake but doing this after facing the computer after an hour or so is definitely a health risk (unless of course you are willing to pay for reading glasses). Healthy eyes is definitely a blogger's asset aside from any imaginable earnings gained from blogging.

5. Psychological distraction – Whatever’s embedded deep within our thinking which affects our daily functions would surely affect our way of writing and drag our course of ideas toward the positive or negative side of a subject matter. Remember that writing after all is a therapy and you need not submit to a psychologist to pay him in asking you what’s the problem which obviously you know the answer. You need not submit to confess yourself also to other people in a therapy session listening at each other’s experience which make one guilty. Blogging is a free therapy session in itself where one’s article could yield comments or suggestions. Something which will be paid for by the blogging platform and not to be collected from you by your psychologist. Just keep the issues lightly and try not to lose your mind of course.

Lovely light read Will. I can't work unless I have absolute quiet. I am very easily distracted. I have around six part finished articles on my desk top because I 'went off them' in the middle of writing them. I do think I may need to get glasses because my eyes are all blurry! I have so many article ideas that I want to get down in type but find family life is just to demanding. I think I will build a summer house and shut myself in it at the top of the garden!

Blogging is indeed addictive but the thing about blurry eyes seemed common to us bloggers. We could just avoid overexposure to the monitor or we lose our right to enjoy this hobby. The idea of a summer house is of course cool, Lisa. The thing is it awaits when could we earn our big profit out of this. Patience and more patience is what it takes.

Wise words Will, I need quiet, but I am good at staying focused, my problem is finding something to be focused about, if I'm not interested in something, I can not write about it.

I have to say I agree on all acounts. I am the laziest blogger when I havOr some the flu or I am at a noisy place. Or sometimes being at home can be distracting too if there are many people around!
