How to be #productive and still have time to #blog Experts reveal solutions to finding time to blog and still be productive.

What is your goal for your blog?

Is it to get page views?  Traffic seems to be most bloggers’ dream.

Do you have a number in mind?  100 page views a day?  1,000 page views a day?

A blogger, who has been blogging for six years, who I consider successful, told me if she has 100 page views, she is having a bad day, and if she gets 1,000 page views, she is having a good day.

    Hi Derrick,
    Nice to meet you! Thank you so much for reading my interview with the 16 experts. You are more fortunate than bloggers like myself that work outside of the home as well as blog. Did you read the comments of the stressed bloggers at the beginning of my post?

    Janice

    Hi Rowena,
    I agree with you. Sometimes I feel as if I am in two parallel worlds, life in and out of the Blogosphere. Thanks again for following my blog and the reblog. I got to meet your reader Derrick! =)
