3 important blogging tasks every blogger should do
When I say blogging tasks. I’m sure you will question yourself. What do I mean by blogging task? and there are a lot of tasks. There are tasks you do that will help and appear for the readers. However, these 3 important blogging tasks will benefit both the blog and experience. Well, it still has a small percentage for the readers as well. Because readers can get speed loading the content when they have good internet.
These tasks will help you work smoothly and also run the blog better. I was guilty of not doing some of them, but I realized that it’s important. So, if you are not doing it. Well, I highly recommend starting doing it. And I realized that when I got into trouble and had to ask an expert to help with it.
Maybe for the first time, you will get confused about doing one of these tasks that I will mention below. And that’s normal because once you get the hang of it. It will be really easy to do. No need to ask for help and it won’t take you a lot of time.
Also, doing these tasks will help you get more familiar with the backend stuff that only bloggers know. Honestly, when I did it, it felt like a fresh experience doing them. As I said, these don’t require you to have an expert, but if you feel you want someone to explain to you. That’s fine and can ask for support.
How many times should we do these blogging tasks?
The period of time we should wait before doing it again could be a week to two weeks. That’s what I recommend, except for one. It should be a maximum of 3 days if you got so busy. But I don’t think it would take so much of your time.
This means you don’t need to do them every day. And that would take so much burden on your shoulder. Because doing it every day is not good for our health when having so many things to do in our daily life as a blogger. Including these 3 important blogging tasks.
How important to do these 3 important blogging tasks?
Well, it’s very important and this would be good to get more people to your blog as well. Somehow it helps with the speed of loading servers and that would be the readers. Therefore, it’s good to keep it fast to get more people to read your blog
However, it’s not important if you find a way to keep them clean. That means you don’t get what I will mention next. Because these 3 important blogging tasks are doing things and if you don’t get them. You don’t have to worry about doing them anymore.
I’m doing some of them every day and that’s because I love to keep them simple and easy to do them. When I check on it every day, which helps me to spend less time doing them. The longer you wait to do them, the longer it will take you to finish them.
As we all know, we get a lot of spam and comments that we won’t publish in our blog for some reason. And we either keep them pending or delete them. For me, I always delete them and make them clean every day. But they don’t get deleted because it still goes to another place that collects them in case you want to restore them. I’m sure all of us know about this, but sometimes we forget to clear them.
It happened to me several times before and I have to remind myself to delete them. It’s slow the blog and stacks up if we don’t delete them. This is for the new bloggers who just started, it could happen because remembering back then, I won’t pay attention to them haha.
Don’t let the deleted comments get stacked with spam comments or comments that you don’t like. It takes the space of the server for nothing and it doesn’t help us with anything. So, it’s good to clean it every two days or three if you want.
This is the fastest and easiest blogging task any blogger would do. Because with only one click you can clear them in WordPress. However, I’ve been away a long, long time and I haven’t used the blogger platform. Also, I have used no other blogging platform. So not sure how it can be done.
It’s easy to delete the comments and don’t delete them permanently. Sometimes I forget it goes to another tab haha, and goes on with my day. So, make sure to remember to delete the deleted comments permanently. And that will help the server to load only the published comments which will be faster.
How to delete them with one click?
Well, before, I would spend time selecting all the comments and deleting them. However, you can just clear the trash and that will help you delete all the pages at the same time. Don’t make the same mistake I did before and cost you spend more time than needed on deleting the comments
It won’t take even 5 minutes to do this. and that’s what I like about doing these 3 important blogging tasks. Any blogger would do it because it’s so easy and doesn’t take so much time. Therefore, we get no excuse for forgetting or not wanting to do it.
Because deleted comments go to another page, some of the bloggers would not permanently delete all the spam comments or unwanted comments. Make sure to do it because it helps you to save more space for other things if you have a low capacity.
2-Servers check and delete the unwanted files
Another important task for bloggers to do is checking the servers. I’m also guilty of not doing this, but I’m fixing it now and trying to check the servers more often nowadays. And I will explain what you can delete and how you get the unwanted files. At first, I didn’t know that it would be a thing and that we need to pay attention to.
You might get unwanted files by deleting plugins or themes. I will upload files to the server and from there you can control them. So by checking the servers, you make sure that you only have the important files. This is something we might not pay attention to, but it’s important.
Why you need to delete the unwanted files?
Well, the load time can also depend on the files and how many the server has files to render. When you have so many files, readers can see the content loading slow. And that’s due to having the server work on files that are not important.
So, it’s better to keep things on file that are important. And things you actually use for the blog. You can save the rest on your laptop for when you need them. Just upload them and things would like they never left the server.
How do we know the files we don’t need?
First, you would need to know what are the files for. This way, you understand what you are going to delete. So, before you delete anything, to understand this, which is one of the 3 important blogging tasks. Learn a little bit about the files and what they are for on the server.
Also, using a speed test for websites can also give you some of the files that cause the website to load slower than it should. So, try to consider testing the blog speed and see what are the things that make it slow.
Make sure to back up the server files if it’s possible. Or copy the files somewhere on your laptop. This way, you can get them back if you made a mistake meanwhile trying to clean the server. Deleting a file that is important would cause the website to stop functioning properly. And that’s not what we want from these 3 important blogging tasks.
It will help you get familiar with the files and understand how you can organize your server. How awesome you get to organize it and make it run faster. The more we get familiar with it, the better performance we can make our servers do. Which is another thing good about these 3 important blogging tasks.
Make sure that only files are for plugins you are using and files that are important for the blog. Anything else, make sure to delete it, keep it clean. That will give you more space, which might not be a lot, but good to have. But more importantly, the speed for loading the blog and other things.
3-Clearing the caches
I’m sure some bloggers do that but for people who didn’t know that this is important. Well, try to clear the caches and I’m not talking about the browser haha. Well, you can clear the caches for the blog and server using plugins.
If you changed the blog or files. This will help to show the recent changes. Because sometimes it won’t take into effect until doing this. I would say this is one of the 3 important blogging tasks that are least done by bloggers. Unless you already know about it, which is amazing.
Because I don’t think there is something that lets us do it automatically. And that’s why it’s an important task and one of the 3 important blogging tasks. And people usually forget about it. So, we need to set a schedule for doing this until you make it a habit to make sure everything is cleared and running smooth.
This will help to make the blog run faster for others. And that makes it more important for us bloggers to focus on it. If you don’t know how to clear caches for the servers, you can ask for customer support and they will help you.
We don’t need things that we already deleted or changed. It will be for no reason and give our readers an unpleasant experience reading our blog because of the reload time. There fore, it’s so important that we do it and make it a habit,
What plugin should I use?
You can search for plugins and find the best one you can get familiar with and help you do it in a simple way. Because some plugins don’t really help when it comes to clearing caches. So, I would say you can try a few of them and see which one you find the best.
Maybe you can read reviews on the plugin instead of downloading it. Because it would be easy not to go to the server to clean the files if they don’t remove the files from the server where all the plugin files are. And you would need to remove it.
How often should I clear caches?
I would say like any of the 3 important blogging tasks. But if you feel that there is nothing to clean. You can delay it for a week or something around it. However, don’t forget to schedule it otherwise, with having so many things, you might forget to do it.
For me, I used to remind myself every two or three days until it became a habit for me to check them. And that helped me to keep always checking on the caches. After my hosting provider told me we need to clear it. I made it my mission to always remember haha. And that’s how important these 3 important blogging tasks are.
