Being a College Student, How Do I Manage Time for Blogging?

Written by Iftekhar Ahmed

One of the most famous questions that I face!!

And to me, it doesn’t make much sense…

Why?? Well, continue reading ๐Ÿ˜›

What does a College Student do if he’s not into Blogging?

Let’s just assume that there’s a student pursuing engineeringย (irrespective of what year he is in) and is not doing any blogging or internet marketing stuff!

What will be his daily routine?

He must be attending his college in daytime. Maybe 5-8 hours.

And what about the time left, the time after he reaches home, the night time and all the free time that he gets???

He might be going out with friends for movies, or maybe just chatting with his girlfriend(s), or maybe browsing facebook/youtube or even some porn

That’s his daily schedule….

TRUST ME it is!!!

And Yes, there will be days when he has to work on his college projects, assignments or exams… But to be honest, that’s just a small amount of time as compared to what he gets during his entire college year…

So !!!

Most of the college students just end up having fun, enjoyment, etc after their day of college. And being honest again, it’s not a bad thing at all. After all the kid has been studying in college ๐Ÿ˜›

Where Does the Difference come?

But then, there’s another sect of students!!

The ones who have some extra/different goals or you might say Passion towards something different.

Blogging and Internet Marketing is one such thing!! Something that attracts a lot of students (engineering students). I am one of them (proudly).

The reasons might be different from person to person, some get attracted to it by seeing the amount of money one can earn while some like the fact that they can help others and make a good name for themselves.

However, in this context, It doesn’t matter at all…

Irrespective of why a student chooses to blog, it’s more important to know and realize the fact that how a student approaches towards blogging.

The student before starting blogging, had lots of time after college which he always used to spend in “not so useful” activities.

But, once he starts something, in this case, blogging (or internet marketing), he will automatically change his habits and schedules.

  • He will himself stop wasting time after college.
  • He will slowly stop going out on regular basis.
  • He will not waste time on stalking girls on facebook.
  • He will not spend his entire time watching Youtube or movies.
  • He will be more focused towards his blogs and other online assets.
  • He will work more and maybe even spend full nights writing posts.

In all, he will develop a habit of utilizing his EXTRA time in a more better manner.

Though he might still not have a proper/regular schedule but he still would be more focused on “Blogging”.

You cannot expect him to give a proper answer to how he manages his time for blogging, instead, you should understand the differences that I explained above.

My Final Words

It’s really funny to see people asking me many times that How I manage my time!!!

Like seriously, being a student, am I that BUSY???

Hell No….

I make myself busy by doing WORK, by doing blogging, by doing internet marketing, by helping others, by running my group, by doing all what maybe not all engineering students don’t do.

And if you still wanna talk numbers…

Let me put some…

  • Morning 7 or 8 AM to 5 PM – Breakfast, college, back to home!!!
  • 5 PM to whenever I sleep – Time that makes the difference. Every student (unless some special case) have this time with no tasks assigned. Its all about what one chooses to do during this time….

That’s how I manage my time.

I still don’t have any specific time slots for my blogging work but I do keep track of what task I have to finish and what I have to do next day.

Hope this piece helps you.
