I calculate that I spend about twenty hours a week on my unpaid work as a blogger. This is only six hours less than I spend on my paid work as a reading coach. Of that, maybe two thirds is spent on actual writing, editing and posting. The other one third is spent fielding comments, frequenting social networks where I engage with other bloggers, and reading other blogs and commenting on them.
I post daily. Well, almost daily. I do miss a few here and there. Even with all that, I never feel I have enough time to do the job right. I could spend longer germinating my posts, edit more, read more blogs, comment more, do more research, engage more on Twitter, spend more time on my Facebook page, read more fellow bloggers on GBE2 and NaBloPoMo. I could easily spend all day, every day, on my blog, and never make a cent.
I'm curious. How do other bloggers spend their time? How much, and on what? Let the comments begin.
