As a blogger I live on the internet. I am constantly on social media. It can get overwhelming.With notifications popping up from literarily every direction, I have a guid on how to deal with this.
Block out internet time
Ever morning after my run I block out 1 hour to replay to comments, check my email, read blog posts… You take time to read a magazine and empty your letter box, why not online?
Have separate emails
Yes I am that crazy person with 3 different email addresses. I’ve got one for all social media, one for my blog and one for personal stuff. This makes it easy to attend to every one of them. You can start with the most important account and then go to the least important one on busy days
Centralise your messages
Tell people to contact you only via one messaging app. I tell everyone to use iMessage to talk to me. This makes it a lot easier to check how the hell is texting me at 3am (grrrrrrr)
Don’t have notifications for things like angry birds popping up on your screen. Go into your phone settings and only keep the notifications you really want to see.
The internet is a blessing and a curse. It’s up to you to use it to your advantage. Please like this post if it was helpful and comment your tips and share with your friends!
See you soon
