Write Random Things
Freewriting is one of the best ways to get ideas. So go ahead, take a blank paper(or Office document) and write away.
Install A Simple, Distraction-Free Text Editor
There are a lot of distractions around.
Go and get a good distraction-free text writer like OmmWriter. This will improve your blog posts by a big margin!
Start A Notebook To Write Your Ideas
An app or software will do as well but a notebook is one of the best ways to record ideas anytime, anywhere.
I tend to use iA Writer on my iPhone as my phone is always around.
Subscribe To Chris Brogan
Chris Brogan is just amazing when it comes to promotion and content marketing advice. Subscribe to his newsletter, you won’t regret.
Subscribe To Ben Settle’s Newsletter
Ben Settle’s newsletter is mainly focused on email marketing and there are a lot of tips in there.
Write About Your Hero
Who is your hero?
I don’t know the answer but I know one thing for sure, you know a lot about him. Think of things that can be learned from him about your niche and write!
Get RankMath SEO
I have used many SEO tactics in the past but RankMath SEO is the best tool for it! It makes SEO natural. You write your post without any worries about optimization and optimization in the editing phase.
Check Your Blog’s Loading Time
Go to Pingdom and check how much time your blog takes to load completely.
If it is fast enough, smile! If it is not, move to the next step!
Install W3 Total Cache
W3 Total Cache is one of the best plugins to make your blog load faster. Install it and see the difference.
Check For WordPress And Plugin Updates
New versions of plugins, themes, and WordPress feature many performance improvements.
If your blog is outdated, do install those. You will be amazed at how much a simple update can improve your blog.
Install A Good Security Plugin
There are a lot of hacking attacks going on. And many are targeted specifically WordPress. Better secure WP with a good security plugin.
Install An Offline Blog Editor
Offline Blog Editors are great for writing posts without an internet connection.
Get a free one and experience yourself.
Want to write online? No problems, just press F11 and go full screen in your to limit distractions.

Where do you want to be in six months? Write it down on a piece of paper, make a plan and follow it.
Join A Membership Site
One of the biggest benefits of membership sites is a helpful community. People are willing to help you and you learn a lot from them.
XMind is a great mind mapping software. Try it to brainstorm ideas!

Start Learning Touch Typing
Touch typing can help you increase your typing speed a lot. I have just finished learning it and it’s quite a nice way to write more in less time. Start learning here.
Set Your Blog’s Body Font To 16 px
12 pixels was considered standard font size for content some time back but now 16 is new 12.
Consider Getting A Mobile Responsive Theme
While mobile theme plugins are nice, responsive themes are the new “thing”.
hey adapt automatically to different screen sizes and devices. Just open UmapathySekar.net on your mobile device and see.
Remove the “Subscribe” word from your blog
Asking readers to “Subscribe” to your blog posts?
Then consider changing the words to something like “Get updates” or “Join Us”.

Study A Top Blog In Your Niche
Open the most popular blog in your industry and study what the owner is doing right. Write down lessons and apply them to your own blog.
Join A Stock Image Site
Finding free images for your blog posts takes a lot of time and you may not always find what you want.
Consider joining a stock image site. Even if you don’t buy anything, the free files available will help you make a good library of images.
Learn HTML and CSS
HTML and CSS are very easy to learn and learning them can save a lot of time.
You can make minor edits yourself and save on designer costs.
Buy A Book About Your Niche
While free books are good, they do not always deliver high quality and organized content. Get a good book about your niche and read it!
Take A Break
It is very easy to work too much and get burned out these days. Avoid this by taking a break on your schedule.
Move Your Blog’s Essential Files To Dropbox
You have many books, plugins, and themes sitting on your hard disk. What if your hard disk crashed? Better to move them to cloud for easy backup, syncing and sharing in Dropbox.
Listen to Music
Listen to music to relax your mind.
Move From Feedburner to MailChimp
Feedburner is nice but it does not let you send newsletters.
MailChimp gives you more control over your list, sends beautiful emails and can track them. And it’s free if your list is less than 2000 members! Sign Up for MailChimp.
Make A One-Sentence Elevator Pitch For Your Blog
What do you answer to “What is your blog about?” Find an answer to this question.
Revise Grammar Rules
While most of us can write and speak easily in English, we do not know a grammar that well. Check for Grammatical errors on your blog post.
Remove a Distracting Widget
Widgets can be quite distracting. Find the one that is least useful to you and readers and remove it.
Work On Your Next Post’s Headline
Headline is the most important part of your post. Spend five minutes working on a better headline for your next post.
Delete Spam Comments
Clear the Spam comments that you have accumulated overages. Seriously, they serve no purpose and it just takes 2 clicks to clear all of them.
Close Comments On Your Old Posts
You can set WordPress to close comments on old posts via Settings -> Discussion.
If you are getting too much spam, this may be the best way to get rid of it.
Make Your Next Post Scannable
Let’s accept it, most of us do not read posts fully. And your readers are doing the same. So better make your next post scannable with proper use of headlines and bullets.
Make A Writing Playlist
Music can help you concentrate on writing. It will also isolate the surrounding noises. Take 5 minutes and make a writing playlist to help you concentrate.
Decide Where And What You Will Write
If you are randomly scattering all your content in different sections of the internet, you are wasting a lot of time. Read Where Should You Put Your Content.
Set Up A Blogroll
You can not stay alone forever. Similarly, you also can not keep your blog isolated. You need to socialize with other bloggers.
And one of the best ways to do it is by setting up a blogroll. Take 5 minutes and set up a blogroll for your blog.
Find Out When You Get Most Traffic
There are some days when traffic is high. Check your analytics to find this time for you and remember it. Next time, publish your important posts at that time.
Bookmark Related Blogs
Make a list of blogs where you comment regularly and make a similar list of guest posts. Use Diigo or similar bookmarking sites.
Join A Niche Social Network
The big social networks are not always the best choice to promote your blog, go and join a network that specifically caters to your niche.
