There are countless tasks a blogger needs to do.
It’s not that you need to do all of them every day.
You can do some of them weekly, some of them monthly and some of them later.
But you have to do some blogging tasks every single day to grow your blog.
In this post, I’ll share 10 daily blogging tasks that I do every single day, consistently, to grow my blog.
10 Daily Blogging Tasks Every Blogger Should Do
I found that I do these things every day.
It’s not that I do these randomly.
In fact, I figured out these things from my years of blogging experience.
The first thing I do is…
1: Learn Blogging/Work On Goals
Currently, I’m writing a book. The first hour of my day I dedicate myself to this.
If I don’t write a book I just learn blogging at that hour.
For example, writing a book requires a lot of research. There are also some learning curves involved in publishing a book. I learn those things within that time frame.
Not only that, but I also learn many other things at that time based on my blogging goals.
For example, If I plan to grow my email list subscribers, I learn that in the time frame and try to implement the techniques.
In a nutshell, I dedicate the first hour of my day to working on my blogging goals.
2: Write Blog Posts
The second thing I do is writing blog posts. I spend at least one hour every day for this.
You should practice writing every day. Try to write at least 500 words every day.
I write 1000 words. I try to write those amount of words within an hour.
But it is sometimes not possible due to researching and many other things involved in writing blog posts.
So I sometimes require to spend more time to fulfill my target.
The thing is you should practice writing every day to overcome writer’s block.
3: Check Emails And Reply
After the writing session, I just check my email and reply if needed.
During this time, I also reply to comments that my readers make on my blog posts.
This is very important. You should check and reply to your emails every day.
Replying to comments is also important for readers’ engagement.
So do this every day.
4: Promote Blog On Social Media
Whichever social media sites you use for your blog marketing, no matter, you should participate in them every day.
It’s not a good practice that you published a blog post on your blog and then share that on social media sites and forget about the platform for the rest of the week.
To grow your social profile and increase reader engagement you should spend time on social media sites every day.
But social media can be time-consuming if you don’t be careful using them.
For this reason, I set a time block in my daily routine for this.
No matter what, I just leave social platforms after that time frame.

5: Comment On Blogs
Blog commenting is a proven way to increase blog traffic and build relationships with successful bloggers.
Not only that, you will get informed about the latest trends in your industry.
I spend one hour every day for blog commenting.
And I have a system for that.
I subscribed to all my favorite blogs in Feedly.
Feedly is my favorite RSS reader.
Every day, I go to my Feedly account and check if anyone published anything.
I just read that content and leave a valuable comment.
6: Sharing Other People’s Content
I haven’t set any time block for this in my daily blog routine.
But I try to share some valuable content from other people to my social accounts every day.
You can ask me how I find those valuable content.
I can tell you some easy ways. You can follow these.
I do this in the following situations:
- While I research my blog post
- While I participate in social promotion
- While I spend time reading and commenting on blogs.
It’s that easy.
But you have to keep one thing in mind that if you find anything valuable online you’ll share that with your readers.
Not only your followers will love this, but the content publishers will also love this.
7: Editing And Scheduling Blog Posts
On average, each of my blog posts takes 15 hours from writing to publishing.
So I separated the writing session from editing.
In my case, scheduling a blog post takes a lot of time as I handle everything alone – creating images, proofreading and all the other things that require to make a post ready for publishing.
I normally spend one hour every day for this. But I often need to invest more time.
8: Work On Weekly, Monthly And Yearly Tasks
You’ll find that there are some blogging tasks that you need to do on a weekly basis, some tasks on a monthly basis and some other tasks that you need to work on just once a year.
For example, I schedule my posts for social media using Buffer on Monday.
Similarly, I track my blog metrics and review my blogging plan at the beginning of every month.
I also have some blogging tasks that I do yearly.
For all these tasks, I set a time block in my daily blog routine.
As a blogger, you also have these types of tasks.
So, work on those tasks every day.
Otherwise, they will remain unfinished.
9: Prepare A Do-to List For The Next Day
This is my favorite task.
I got this idea from Brian Tracy’s best selling productivity book “Eat That Frog”.
It really helps me be productive.
I just bring all the blogging tasks in a place that I need to work on the next day.
Doing so helps me to maintain focus and work on those tasks without wasting time.
Although this task isn’t directly related to blogging, yet every blogger should include this in their daily blogging tasks list.
10: Read Books
This task is not directly related to blogging.
But it’ll help you to become an effective writer.
Every day, before going to bed, I read a book for half an hour.
I normally read self-development books at that time.
But sometimes I also read blogging related books.

I consistently do these blogging tasks every day.
Okay. I sometimes miss a day. But I try to keep me on track.
