    Tips for Bloggers while on the road

    Blogging can sometimes be very demanding in that you will need to spend maximum time in front of your computer and blogging resources. But everyone has to go on a trip sometimes, so this post provides some cool tips on how to manage your blogging life while on the road.

    1) Complete as many task as you can before you leave
    You don't want to do as much while on road when compared to what you might have done in the office or at home. Therefore, plan your trip a few months in advance and take this time to prepare as many posts as possible and schedule their posting time. Put up guest posts now and schedule your own posts to publish automatically while you are on the road.

    2) Store your bookmarks and passwords online
    Use utilities such as Xmarks and Passpack to keep all your passwords and bookmarks online, so that you can access them anytime you want to.

    3) Backup Documents online
    You can use Google Docs to keep copies of your documents online, which is accessible from anywhere having an internet facility.

    4) Organize your email
    The last thing you will want to do is to wade through spams and notification emails when on the move. You may decide to pop into an internet kiosk for a quick check of your important emails, so organizing your email inbox is important. Create folders or labels for important emails, such as invoices. Turn of notification emails from online services, such as twitter. Unsubscribe from unwanted mailing lists. In short, minimize your inbox clutter so that you have instant access to your important emails. If you have a mobile internet facility, even better.

    5) Keep important phone contacts numbers handy
    These could include the contacts of your web hosting provider, clients, or even your bank. Your website could go down, or maybe your credit card could be lost. Having contact numbers at hand will help you quickly get in touch with the concerned individuals or companies.

    I disagree with only one point - the first one. I would complete the -most important- stuff before you leave and then focus on the things that need to get done. If you're a new blog that means scheduled posts but sometimes it can also mean dealing with blog partners, upgrades, etc.

    True! When important things are out of the way, focusing on regular stuffs becomes quite easy. Thanks for the tip

    Now Blogger has a feature where you can write posts via SMS and mail which is handy for bloggers who travel.

    This could be implemented to everybody's daily life too. I know I spend a lot of time driving around town to get things done. Do you think people should write while waiting for things, or should you only write at designated times?

    Personally, I say write whenever inspiration strikes. If you want to write while waiting, then go for it.
