Should blogging suffer during the academic school year?

As you may have noticed, my last post was about what lies ahead of me over the next few months (class, organizations, working, etc). So, my question to you is, when living such busy lives during the academic school year, should your blogging career suffer because of your school career? 

As you can tell, over just the last week or so, my blogging has basically come to a stop. The reason? I have to figure out what my schedule is going to be like and take some time to get into a new routine.

So, I guess the lesson for now is to figure out a blogging routine and make sure that it fits with the rest of your regular daily routine if you are not blogging for your career and have other commitments. 

I have still yet to figure out my blogging routine for this school semester, but I sure hope that I can work it out over the next week or so. I really want to be able to get back to providing my readers with some quality content (and of course try to continue to make some more money).

So, please be patient and stay tuned for some more posting coming up soon! I do have a couple posts in the works for you all about some SEO techniques for your blogs and also some great WordPress plugins. 

Hopefully some of the topics covered in my classes will also provide for some fresh content focused on business and entrepreneurship…that is the reason you all continue to read Dorm Room Biz isn’t it?

Does your blogging slow down during the academic school year?

    I find just the opposite is true for me. When I’m at school I’m not working a full time job like I am in the summer – it’s a lot easier for me to find time to blog when I can do it in between classes instead of trying to cram it all in before I go to work like in the summer.

    I can’t wait to get back to school so I can start blogging more regularly again!

    Thanks for the comment Briana!

    I agree that it should be the other way around and in a week or two, once I have everything settled and my schedule is completely set, then I will probably find a normal blogging schedule that will allow me to post more often, I just do not see that happening in the next week or so. After that though, things should pick up!

    Chris I feel the same way. My blog has really been put on hiatus as I try to catch up on work and new classes. And on top of that I start my new internship today. I’m thinking about taking the time to write 4 or 5 posts over the weekend, that way I have time for the rest of my schedule during the week.

    If you can find the time over the weekend to catch up on blogging or to plan out and write your blog posts for the coming week, I think that is a great way to get into your blogging grove or schedule. Yet, sometimes its hard to even find time on the weekends to blog to or to even just write articles in Word. It helps for sure, to be able to have them already written and then just publish them every day or every other day.

    This is probably the approach that I am going to be taking and see how well it works out.
