How Many Hours Do You Spend on Blogging Each Day ?

Mario Lavandeira How many hours of blogging is enough ? We all have different schedules depending on the size of our audiences and whether we blog as a hobby or as a full-time profession.

A recent report published in the Wall Street Journal states that writers of breaking-news blogs work anywhere between 40- to 60-hours per week.

But there's a bigger surprise, 28 year old Mario Lavandeira of (the most popular blog in the world), says he averages 19-hour workdays that start at 5:15 a.m.

The upside - millions of visitors and tons of moolah. The downside - a 19 hour blog day leaves you with just five hours for sleeping, brushing teeth, eating and spending time with the family. And Mario honestly admits that - "I have no life, I am always working, and I can never take a vacation."

I generally spend 10-12 hours a day on this blog but that involves not just writing the posts - a decent amount of time goes in maintaining the site, responding to user comments, exploring new services / software and following up with web plagiarists.

How would you describe a typical day in your blog life ?
