Better Than Most: Lazy Person’s Guide to Successful Blogging

Am I lazy?

Sometimes lazy folks have an advantage because they naturally only do the bare minimum. They avoid the unnecessary and stick to the basics.

That curiosity and ambition keep me suiting up and showing up each day.

Schedule Time To Write

You can do this any way that works best for you. You can schedule large blocks of time or 15 minutes every day. With 24 blog titles you will be publishing 2 posts a month. You’re encouraged to do more but this will be your required minimum. I would prefer to knock out 2 posts in one day and be done for the rest of the month. Whatever you do, make time to write.

Setup Google Authorship

Google Authorship will help set your blog apart in Google search results. You only have to set it up once and then you are good to go.

Search Engine Optimize Your Posts

Once your post has been written take a minute and optimize your post for search engines. This will have a tremendous impact on your search engine rankings when compared to another blog that completely ignores SEO.

Schedule Post Dates in WordPress

If you chose to write your posts before you plan on publishing them schedule the time and date for your post to be published. Most content management systems (like WordPress) will have some method of scheduling the publish date, this will allow you to set it and forget it.

Share Posts on Social Media Sites & Schedule with Hootsuite

Sharing your posts on your social media accounts will help build traffic. If you use a tool like Hootsuite you can schedule your social media posts.


If you are going to blog using the minimum plan, be sure to focus on quality content. If you are only going to post 2 posts a month make sure they are in depth and of high value. Quality content is also far more likely to be shared.
