Have you got a spare 10 minutes? You could use it to do some blogging. Ten minutes might not seem like very long but there are things you can do in that short window of time that can make an impact on your blogging day.
Here’s a quick checklist:
10 Minutes On your Blog
- Update your plugins
- Answer comments from readers
- Write a post outline
- Fix 5 broken links on your blog (How do you find the broken links? I use a WP plugin called Broken Link Checker)
- Pin 4 pictures to Pinterest
- Share your latest post on all your social networks
- Empty your spam comments folder
- Brainstorm post ideas
- Update your About page
- Clear extra items from your sidebar
- Upload photos for your next post
- Share 3 posts to Google+
10 Minutes Off your Blog (but still blog related!)
- Comment on 3 blogs
- Schedule 5 posts on your Facebook page
- Download photos from your camera
- Edit 5 photos
- Clear your email inbox – delete the spam, and read or mark for reading later
- Find 3 posts on Twitter to read or retweet
- Empty your email spam folder
- Use Canva to create a pinnable image for an old post, then pin it

Fantastic Tips! So often I run out of blogging time, but with a smart phone, a quick 10 minutes of social media keep me happy.
I do a lot of email and social media on my phone these days too
Thanks for the helpful hints- especially the Broken Link Checker 🙂
You’re welcome, Kylie!
Great tips! I’m not sure I could keep the commenting on other blogs down to 10 mins…. I have a habbit of getting sidetracked and following links to other blogs and before I know it, an hour has passed. lol
Congrats on reaching 1000 subscribers!!! That’s fantastic 🙂
I sometimes set a timer to stop myself just randomly roaming the internet for too long ;o)

Fabulous tips! I must do more of these little things
Me too, Becci! I’m hoping the list will motivate me!
Hi that was super handy. As I am new to blogging all the tips I can read up on will definitely help me. I am enjoying the journey so far 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity to enter the give away.
Thanks Carina. I’m happy to share so make sure you ask if you have any questions
Oh, this is great!
I have got to get better at leaving comments…
I know you lurk, my friend!

I LOVE your blogging tips – they are really useful to me and easy to read. These are excellent suggestions to do in 10 minutes. I have a list of blog things to do like add a Bloglovin badge, update the editorial calendar, instagram some photos, and my favourite subject lately – designing a logo.
Great ideas! Gonna do it later on today!!
The trouble is I think I’ll just do ten minutes and before I know it two hours have passed by! I’m going to look up the broken link checker. Thanks for the hint CM.

Thanks for the hints! I really need to look in to it, I take forever with my blogging. I got here from your newsletter.
Love these tips!! I think I need to stop twiddling my thumbs with my blog and just get things done 🙂
Oh yeah, great ideas. I really like to post on my blog, but get sidetracked with cleaning out my e-mail, labeling and resizing pictures and checking out forums. I really like to post pictures on my blog so that is another thing that keeps me from doing it more often. I think that I need to change my posting procedures. Using some of the tips here will help. I’m so glad I found the ‘Crafty Mummy’! Thanks for all that you do!

I’m always amazed at what can be accomplished in such a short time.
Great post!! If link to your blog may I translate it in italian?
Hi. You are welcome to link back to my blog post. You may not translate the whole post into any language, just as you may not copy my whole post. If you do copy or translate the whole post, you would be breaching copyright.
It’s exactly the reason why I asked to you before ^_^ I didn’t know if you agree with the share alike attribution share policy 🙂 By te way now it’s clear you don’t 🙂 By the way I’ll link back to thiss great work as soon as possible in one of my posts. Cheers and sorry for bad english. Keep up the good work!
Wow, this is what I need… blogging management. Thanks for sharing. It’s very helpful.
