    Hi, Im not to sure if this is the best place to post this but I am looking at starting a blog network to generate some income. I have about 4 months off over summer (Australia) and want to create network of niche blogs, i will basically be doing what spencer at nichpursuits does. However, I find that i get distracted really easy with out a check list of things to do every day.

    So my questions are.

    How many blogs do you start a month?

    What is your basic daily routine/daily checklist?

    So far this is all I have

    * Check Emails * Update Spreadsheets
    *Research Keywords for 5 sites
    * Order Content to be written
    * Write any content needed
    * Link Building for 5 sites
    I am new to all this so feel free to criticise but only if it helps.

    Cheers.

    Scratching my balls is usually at the top of my list!

    But seriously folks you need to be understand during the course of your day when its best to do routine work versus creative work. Do you write better when fresh or when you are tired? Understanding yourself is critical in any schedule setting.

    Yea I do understand that aspect of it alot which is why instead of setting times i have set them into 1 hour "blocks". So I can really start each block whenever I want as long as it is done by the end of the day

    Too rigid, it makes the day seem like a forced march. There is a rhythm to the day and yourself and you just have to figure it out. Play Discipline from NIN to get you going!
