Fandango’s Provocative Question #109

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.

I don’t know about you, but I typically spend about four to seven (occasionally even more) hours a day on my blog, either writing, proofreading, editing, and publishing my own posts or reading and commenting on the posts written by other bloggers.That’s a fairly significant chunk of my waking hours and I have found myself wondering if I’m unusual in that regard. I also wonder what I would do with those hours if I didn’t spend them on my blog.

So my provocative question today is simply this:

How many hours, on average, do you spend per day (or per week) on blogging-related activities?


I think in a nutshell, I’d say I blog the whole day. But….

Not continuously!

My usual routine is that I catch up with my comments, and reader when I get up in the morning. After that, during the day I keep an eye on my WP reader and notifications. I respond to comments off and on.

Later in the day when I’m free, I write and preschedule my post for the next day.

Then I spend time with my family and just before retiring to bed, I take a look at my blog, answer comments and read and comment on the blogs that I follow.

In my estimation, this takes up to 4-5 hours of my waking time.

And, what do you think you might do with your time if you didn’t spend it on those blogging-related activities?

I think I’d slowly go bonkers with boredom if I didn’t have my blog to occupy me.

I still have time to spend time with my family, chat with my friends and when there were no restrictions on going out, I’d go out with family or friends for recreation.

Blogging has not only developed into a very good hobby for me but is also keeping me mentally active, which is very important if one wants to avoid early dementia.

And the community here is awesome. It’s like meeting friends every day.

My conclusion;

I am happy at the time I spend blogging and it pays back handsomely.

  1. I’m spending the same 4-7 hours. I will be closing down the daily Adventures at 365 to free up some time. Ben going back to school two days a week will help too. A lot of my times is interrupted time. I do everything in bursts. It’s awful for concentration.
    I hope to finally get my exercise plan going maybe nap😉💕


      1. Yeah… maybe weekly or a couple times a week.🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m just shutting down the “daily” aspect. I’m finding that some days I just don’t want to do it. Plus, I’d like to have more time for prompts, maybe follow other blogs. 🤷🏼‍♀️ We’ll see what happens 😉💕💝🌻
