Batch Working for Maximum Productivity


Several years ago I came across the concept of batch working, and implementing it into my blog content creation has proven to be effective, more productive and rewarding. What is batch working? It is a highly-focused and topic-specific work, where you work on a previously assigned topic, limiting all distractions to a minimum for maximum productivity. 

How does it work for me? I have discovered that having photos of multiple projects for my blog made in advance greatly lessens the whole creating / writing of the posts, and leaves me with lots of free time to focus and concentrate fully on planning future blog content, which is another batch day.

So a batch day for me is usually at the weekend (mostly Saturdays-because I have a full time job) when I exclusively dedicate myself on shooting photos for all the posts I had previously drafted in my monthly blog calendar. I try to make at least two-weeks' coverage on such a batch day, and I must say the sense of accomplishment and fulfillment is overwhelming. 

Do you batch work? Any tips to share?

So that is what it is called. =) I too find myself taking a lot of photos in readiness for a post I will write sometime down the track. I find I am always thinking ahead as to what I will create and write. Maya.....this scarf is lovely. The rust with that grey is a fabulous mix.

Thank you for the lovely compliment Kim! It does make blogging way easier when you have photos to work your story around it, doesn't it! I would love to be able to peek into your camera roll and see what gorgeousness you are cooking up for us :)

Love the scarf. I can't seem to organize any aspect of my life, or stick with any kind of routine. :/
