How long does it take you to write a blog post?

Some people agonise over a blog post. Some people just shoot. I belong to the latter group. The lucky one.

When I am in the mood, I can shoot several posts about various topics within minutes. I do not like the idea of wasting too much time over a blog post because it is well, a waste of time. If some posts made it to the SERP, i.e. first page on search result, then, I will return to that post and update it. Otherwise, why bother to put so much contents in a post when it will probably not make any impact at all?

Here are some of the posts I ping-ed.

At 10.26 pm, I wrote a food post.

Then, I chatted a bit with my little boy and helped him to type hot wheels so that he can Google image.

Sometimes, I paused to bath him or wash his butt. Othertimes, I went out to the living room, watch some TV or make myself a drink.

After that, I return to my Mac and bullshit more posts.

I didn’t realize how fast I can type until I look at the time of these two posts.

At 10.53 pm, I pinged a post about Yeo’s curry chicken. At 11.03 pm, I managed to complete another bitch rant and pinged again.

In between 10.53 pm and 11.03 pm, I also stopped to talk with my #3 son and he tested me if I know all the names of the planets.

So, in conclusion, I can write many posts within a short time. What about you? Do you waste unnecessary time, cracking your head, sweating over a post? Or do you post just because you can?

    I sweat over my posts. lol. Sometimes I can type an entry and then get so tired I fall asleep just before I hit the publish button. But I make sure that the post is proof-read a couple of times and the pictures to be aligned properly and resized to fit and all that. I’m just to fussy :P

    I’m a stickler for good grammar and vocab, so I take my time posting, usually 20 to 30 minutes per post. It may take longer, depending on the demands of my 2-year old and 3-month old sons.
