If you are the owner or future owner of a blog, one thing to consider is blog management and whether or not you should hire out. A good rule of thumb for a pre-existing blog is to spend about an hour or two a day on it. Any less than that and you’re not being productive. Any more than that, depending on the type of blog, can prove to be either beneficial or fatal to the survival of your blog. It’s up to you to decide how much time needs to be spent on your blog but spend at least an hour a day at the bare minimum especially if you are just starting out.
Should you hire someone to manage your blog for you?
If your blog is brand spanking new then it’s probably best to do all the work yourself UNLESS you can find people who are willing to come on board and contribute with the chance of having a permanent, paid position later on. These people aren’t too hard to find but quality writers are hard to find. Request sample work from any prospects and ask to see any blog they may have worked on in the past.
If you already have a blog up and running with a good database and following, you may consider hiring out to a blog management company or someone that specializes in the such. It will cost you money but it will save you time and if your blog is already earning you a profit, you can continue earning a profit without actually working. All you have to do is check a few emails and the rest of the day is yours! In short, hiring out for blog management isn’t a good idea if you just got your blog up and running (unless you have a large budget) but is very beneficial to those with established blogs that are looking to expand their blog.
