Don’t Write Blog Posts on Your PC

Many Times I keep getting distracted by other activities that I tend to forget to contribute something to my own blogs. No matter how hard I try, something or the other keeps coming in between. There are many ways of switching off distractions like not using Firefox(makes you stay away from lots of tabs and plugins), switch off your messengers, switch of email inbox and even disconnecting from internet. But since you are still on the PC, sometimes mind keeps revolving here and there and focus keeps on loosing.

I have found that when I shut down my PC, I can concentrate on new ideas better than while sitting in front of it. Does it happen with you? I would definitely recommend you to concentrate on new ideas while you are away from the PC if you also are getting constantly distracted on your PC. Some people start playing games if they are not connected to the net. So that distracts them even more. PC is not all Internet you see – Its a gaming station, Media Player, Jukebox and even your Office!

So pls try this. Keep a small notepad and a pen with you always and focus on your blog/site/new ideas whenever you have free time and are not in front of the PC. You will automatically feel good and new ideas will start flowing down your mind. Try this and pls share your thoughts about this.

  1. I just resort to using a pen and paper. I love the classical style of writing. Later typing it in does a proof-reading and further editing. So that works the best for me.


  2. Very true, as soon as I seat in front of the PC, I find so many other things to do that last month I could only manage a single blog post…

    Though you know, some time for me at-least rather posting, maintenance of the blog takes hell lot of a time… To start with from its hosting till managing so many emails / comments :(


  3. Well to give the shape to my plan I need excel, word and outlook. So this is not at all possible without my laptop.

    Yeah several time I do planning on my terrace as well and in that case my exercise book and my pencil is really good.


  4. Well I use my bedroom for planning. In front of computer many things keep coming in my mind. But yeah If I will have to use excel, document or my outlook (To arrange the program) than I do it without switch on my internet.


  5. It is a generel mental habituality that which experienced to everybody.I my self do not think about article ideas while sitting at the computer. I sit infront of the computer only when the article took full shape and further alterations are not required. I check spell mistakes also at outside of the couputer. Working and thinking both are different activities of brain(big and small)It suould be done one after another.If both occurs same time, there is a slight communication gap between big and small brains.The result is- loosing of concentration.Thanks for good informative article.


  6. This idea is helpful to spread around, as writers will then know to depart from their computing environment when looking to come up with a future topic of an article. The change in location causes the brain to think more actively in the aspect of creating new material. Switching to paper when writing an article is also much more enjoyable, as one can quickly get points written down in various sections, and then relay the information to a computer.


  7. I am moody when it comes into writing. Sometimes I have the idea of what to write in my mind but then I am lazy to start writing it.


  8. I use OneNote. When ever an idea commes to my mind (and that actual happens ones in a while) I quickly type it in OneNote. Then I all ways have this bag of ideas I can use when ever I need’em.


  9. While writing a post i always need reference fron Internet on various aspects- so its not possible for me to do this excercise, BTW if you try hard you will be able to concentrate while writing post on your PC or Lappy. Good writeup


    1. I agree with your point fully. But sometimes this method will let you concentrate on basic idea. FOr references and writing the post, you will come online obviously but I follow this method when I am out of ideas. This helps me concentrate with new ideas.


  10. I am also in front of the computer most of the time (10+ hours) so it’s impossible to escape. What I do though when I want to write posts is sit in front of the PC and just open one window/browser. That way, I can concentrate on writing.
