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 ?

How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall. Facebook offers the Takeout option allowing you to download all Facebook data locally to the disk (include
