So when I was a student and the same time doing blogging I knew how stressful it is. Particularly in terms of time consumption, if someone is not focus or determined he/she may end up achieving nothing both in the primary assignment (i.e. academic) or in blogging. In most cases, the level of stress may depends on your niche take for instance, I personally as a Tech blogger, I did a lot of sleepless night just to make sure my blog is up to the standard - as the work ranges from writing posts, writing mobile and other devices review, replying comments, attending to social media groups and others so also I must think of my primary assignment.
But there are some strategies which I applied then that relieved me a little bit in term of stress. Here is it below
Strategies To Reduce Blogging Stress.
ü Don't Search For News, Let The News Come To You
I could remember when I was new in the profession I must search the net and visit the top site in my niche before I could write a post but nowadays RSS feed has made it simple for me even without going through any stress. RSS feed is the best way to get latest updates and this can be done by adding the feed URL of the top sites in your niche to the feed reader. So once there’s any latest news you will get it instantly without stressing yourself.
