Blogging and SEO: Levels of Commitment

Marc has a great post on how the Philippine SEO industry can improve. I wish I could join in and help. SEO for me is a fun hobby. The dollars I earn slowly add to my investment money.

But I couldn’t take it to the next level. Same with blogging. I could not be a problogger.

So what makes one a pro blogger or SEO? A quick estimate:

  • 1-2 hours a day, and more time on weekends, is hobbyist level. My level.
  • 4 hours is part-time level.
  • 8 hours a day or more, it’s your full-time job or business.

Another metric is: do blogging, SEO, or other tech-hobbies (say, assembling PCs or writing small software) make the majority of your income?
Unfortunately, mental bandwidth and attention span capacity can’t be measured that easily. It also helps if blogging/SEO are different from your employment/day job, which is my case.

  1. I’m playing from 4 hours to 8+ hours a day. But it’s not my full-time job or business 😀

    Good one, very interesting. You made me think about it.

  2. Hi – JC or John?
    I’m glad I gave you some food for thought. Yes this is something that probloggers and wannabes should consider.

    4-8 days of game play a day? Wow! I wish I had that much free time.

  3. gaaaah! no wonder i can’t be a full-fledged problogger! i’m merely a hobbyist!

    (there go my dreams of moolah.)
