“Blogging is easy”
HI!I’m Nika.Thanks for reading my blog!
So, I’m a senior high student and a blogger.I know bloggers who are also in school.And, sadly a lot of them are really active on their blog when they’re on summer break, but when the school year starts, their blogs kinda…die.
This might also be helpful for those of you who are in school but have a job as well.
Look, I’m definitely NOT the best person to get advice about time management from, but over time I’ve learnt a few things that could be helpful for managing time and being able to do both, blogging/work and school.
note:This blog-post is a collab with Bayance(hey girl, hey ;)) and Everydaymusingsblog.It’s a High-School advice collab originally started by Bayance, and they both have some valuable info for you high schoolers.
(1) Give yourself enough sleep,boo
It’s so ironic that this is coming from me, because I’m the worst when it comes to having a sane sleep schedule.I just find sleep…boring, because I feel like there’s so much better stuff to do than to friggin sleep, ya know?
But I’ll repeat what everyone around me keeps repeating to me everyday:
Please get your sleep.
For those of you who think sleeping is unproductive, remember that it’s not about how much you sleep, it’s about what you do while you’re awake.
(2) Find a “hobby”
I know, blogging is your passion.But it’s something you do religiously often now, isn’t it?
By hobby, I mean-find something different that interests you that is your ultimate go-to when your blog or school stresses you out.
For me, it’s watching YouTube.Super unproductive.Glorious.
Find something that you don’t have to do, but you can look forward to as a getaway.
(3) Socialize!Attend those parties.
I always give myself so much crap for attending parties because I think that they’re unproductive and that I could be working instead, but dude, socializing literally keeps my sanity in place.I can’t live without socializing for more than 10 hours.And I’m sure, that you’re the same.Because everyone needs other humans in their lives.
Socializing is a fool-proof way to get rid of your stresses.I promise.It’s not unproductive.
(4) Everyday motivation.
Okay, I believe that since y’all are bloggers, the first thing that you do when you wake up in the morning is probaby check your social media, right?
Make sure that you get your motivation from the internet right then.
Follow @jadedarmawangsa or @garyvee on Instagram, or keep a motivational wallpaper for your phone lockscreen.It really makes a huge difference.
Like, everything.I plan my goals of the month in the beginning of a new month, and I do the same for every new week.
(6) Reward yourself!
When you finish your tasks planned for the day or week, reward yourself boo!You deserve it.It could be anything.
For me, it’s…you guessed it.I allow myself to watch some extra YouTube as a reward.
My rewards are also in the form of savings.I save money every week if I complete a certain amount of goals, and if I don’t complete them, I don’t save the money.
This is also a great way to save, if you’re like me and you’re really hyped about your future business and want to start saving up for it right when you’re in high-school.
(7) Set the work vibe
I don’t know about you, but when I’m laying around in blankets in my PJs, all I want to do is watch YouTube and stuff my face with vegan ice-cream.Being productive is the last thing that I want to do when I’m dressed like that.
The same goes with when my room is an uncomfortable mess versus when it’s comfortably lit up and tidy.
So dress up, wear makeup if you need to, do your hair, sit on your desk, get that work ibe going, and I promise, you’ll feel SO much more productive.
This one’s so self-explainatory, that it hurts to know that people still don’t give this a try.
I dare you, fellow blogger-Workout regularly for one week while working and handling school, and you’ll see the difference.
(9) Document it.
You’re a blogger, right?Document your work!Document it when you’re tired of working but still have to be productive, document every small blog victory, document your rants, because there’s a lot of people out there who want more of that in their life to motivate themselves.
(10) Let’s rant together lol
But hey, ranting and complaining is completely normal!Don’t bottle it up when you’re stressed.DM me on Instagram @nicculent, and let’s rant and cry together, with the double-chin selfies of course.It’ll be fun.I’m always up for a rant sesh with my fellow boggers.And if you haven’t tried a ranting sesh with your blogger friends, you’re majorly missing out, yo.
Thanks for reading!I hope you found this collab helpful.
