When Bloggers Procrastinate

Bloggers have been procrastinating since blogging first came online (According to the article, History of Blogging [which was put together by the folks over at Notre Dame of Maryland University], blogging dates back to 1994).

Today, bloggers are still procrastinating as though procrastination itself is fashionable.

Procrastination can both be a good thing and a bad thing (Okay, I know that statement sounds controversial; so, please bear with me while I prove my point).

The Mains Reason Why Bloggers Procrastinate

Bloggers procrastinate because:

  • They are not in the mood to write.
  • They are too physically and mentally exhausted to blog.
  • They believe that they can get away with working on a blog post later.
  • They are unsure of what they want to base their upcoming blog post on.
  • They are in the mood to do something else.

Bloggers, like everyone else, will find themselves procrastinating; especially when they are not in the mood to blog.

Damn! We human beings can be very moody creatures at times!

Procrastination Can Work In A Blogger’s Favour

Yes, my friend, it is true that procrastination can work in a blogger’s favour.

And, how is it that procrastination can work in a blogger’s favour?

A perfect example is leaving your blog post in your drafts with the intention of coming back to it a few hours after to proofread it and edit it and publish it (The bloggers who do not want typographical and grammatical errors in their blog posts are known to do that).

Therefore, that is the good type of procrastination.

Procrastination Can Work Against A Blogger

When a blogger thinks that they have all of the time in the world to work on their blog post, they will put it off for later; as a result of their action they end up doing one of the following things:

  • They forget to write their blog post (That could be bad if they are supposed to be working with a deadline).
  • They wait until the very last minute to write and publish their blog post; the quality of the blog post suffered because it was rushed (It could have turned out much better if they had spent more time putting it together).
  • They put off the writing and publishing of their blog post for another day (Which, unfortunately, leads to them putting it off for many more days than they had anticipated).

So, in this particular instance, procrastination is bad.

Final Thoughts

As you have learned, procrastination (depending on the circumstances) could either be good or bad.

There are those times when a blogger must procrastinate.

And, there are those moments when a blogger should not procrastinate at all.

Therefore, a blogger needs to possess the wisdom to know when they should and should not procrastinate.

  1. Iโ€™m procrastinating right now because Iโ€™m very sick and donโ€™t have the energy to write. Cancelled work for the 5th time d/t a lung infection and what feels like bronchitis ๐Ÿ˜– Took a covid test and it was negative.


  2. Right as rain as usual Renard. I rarely procrastinate when it comes to writing and publishing a blog. If I have decided that day to publish it , I will publish it and when I do procrastinate I make it work in my favor, I usually let it stay on my drafts then after a few hours get back to it, check spelling before hitting send then after I am satisfied with the outcome publish it.

    If I decide to procrastinate completely it is when I am not in the mood to write so I just switch off my focus and do other things because if I rush to publish I will be sending out mediocre blog posts which won’t send the right message about me๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ
