Doing the urgent things instead of working on the important things.
Your blog dies if you do not do the important things.
Automation is one solution. Any routine boring tasks, automate them. The work required is quickly paid off.
For example, posting items to social media. Pick one of two times a day to post your new content to social networks.
Posting content can also be scheduled to happen and certain times.
IFTTT is a great tool to publish your content to various networks and it is totally free. You can reuse someone else’s recipe to automate things you do daily.
Macro Scripts are great things to use to automate tasks. iMacros web browser plugin is a big time saver.
Linking tools are a great way to monetize your website without going through all the work in joining networks and placing links on your site. Infolinks for example, has a plugin that will take words within your post and make them into links that you then get paid for when certain actions occur.
