Do you check your WordPress stats every five minutes or less?
If you have answered, “Yes,” you are deeply addicted to checking the stats on your blog.
Today, I am going to provide you with some simple tips on breaking your WordPress stats addiction (So, read on closely, my friend).
1.) Log Yourself Out Of WordPress (Optional)
A lot of you may cringe at the idea of logging yourself out of WordPress (Hey, do not worry, you can always sign in to your WordPress account in the next hour or so).
Why should you log yourself out of your WordPress account?
Because logging yourself out of your WordPress account will ensure that you would not be able to check your stats every five minutes or less.
To resist the urge of logging yourself back into your WordPress account, I recommend walking away from your computer and leaving your smartphone at the desk (The less temptation that you have pertaining to logging back into your WordPress account before an hour’s time, the better).
2.) Devote 15 Minutes Of Your Time To Coming Up With Blog Post Ideas
One of the reasons why some bloggers are unable to keep their blogs active is because they are bankrupt of ideas (If they had ideas, they would have been able to flesh them out into blog posts).
Also, spending fifteen minutes of your time coming up with blog post ideas is more fruitful than wasting the same amount of time looking at your WordPress stats.
What should you do whenever you come up with worthwhile blog post ideas?
You should jot them down, of course (I recommend writing them down in an old-fashioned notebook).
When you are desperate for blog post ideas, you can open your notebook and read through your list of blog post ideas.
3.) Devote An Allotted Amount Of Time For Researching Your Chosen Topic
Another way to overcome your WordPress stats addiction is to spend an allotted amount of time for researching your chosen topic.
Here is a list of advantages to researching your chosen topic in advance:
- You will have up-to-date information to work with.
- You will be in a much better position to put your blog post together with ease.
- You will be in a much better position to write your blog posts in a shorter timeframe (This is ideal for those people who do not have much time at their disposal).
Do you ever research your chosen topic in advance?
4.) Create A Blog Post Whenever You Are Tempted To Check Your WordPress Stats (Optional)
For the record, it is not mandatory for you to publish every blog post that you write.
However, the act of writing blog posts regularly will help you to develop the habit of writing.
So, whenever you are tempted to check your WordPress stats, write a blog post (If it turns out to be one of those blog posts that is well-written, you can schedule it to be published at a later date).
5.) Devote An Hour To Reading Blog Posts From Your Fellow Bloggers
Instead of checking your WordPress stats every five minutes or less, you can devote one hour of your time to reading blog posts from your fellow bloggers.
After you have thoroughly read a blog post, you can leave the blogger a valuable comment in their blog’s commenting section and press the Like button.
On a positive note, you will be taking the time to check out the blog posts from your fellow bloggers (Which, ironically, is something that a lot of bloggers have claimed that they have insufficient time to do).
Whenever you are tempted to check your WordPress stats every five minutes or less, you can resist the urge to do so by doing the following things:
- Logging yourself out of your WordPress account (Optional).
- Devoting fifteen minutes of your time to coming up with blog post ideas.
- Devoting an allotted amount of time for researching your chosen topic.
- Creating a blog post whenever you are tempted to check your WordPress stats (Optional).
- Devoting an hour to reading blog posts from your fellow bloggers.
