This is a question that I often ask myself and other bloggers. How long does it take you to write an average blog post? For me, it varies greatly. My last post about the Facebook Garage took just 10 minutes. However, I have spent as much as 3 hours on a post.
Generally, the most time consuming posts are the ReviewMe reviews because they require that I do some research. For other posts, the actually writing time isn’t that long, it’s all the research that goes into it that takes up the most time.
Sometime, It Takes Longer To Think What To Write
I’m sure you’ve been in this situation before – you need to update your blog but you got nothing to write about. You can spend more time thinking about what to write than actually writing. Have that ever happen to you? This is why I love the WordPress Timestamp so much. I often get multiple post ideas at once. When that happens, I try to write them all down and Timestamp them before I forget about them.
If you ever get into a situation where you have nothing to blog about, then check out my Five Things To Do When You Have Nothing To Blog About. It rarely happens to me, but when it does happen, that is the list I go through.
And this blog post took five minutes. How long does your post take?
