How much time do you spend on your own blog?
You know, scanning cards, researching topics, writing...the whole thing.
I've got the scanning thing down so that doesn't take too much time, but I'm not scanning in 100's of cards at a time. I probably spend 30 minutes to an hour scanning cards each week. Some of those don't make into posts, at least not right away.
Researching topics takes a fair amount of time. I really don't do enough research. There are some blogs out there that have so much great info that those people are either really smart or do great research. I probably spend 2 hours a week doing research for topics.
Finally, the writing/editing process. Some of your writing blows me away and it's so great I sometimes think "why bother", but I enjoy the writing part of blogging best of all. In a week where I put up 2 posts per day (and I'm not on vacation), I probably spend 2 hours writing.
So that's somewhere around 4-5 hours a week spent on my own blog.
How about you?
