As human beings, we seem to be natural born procrastinators. We may not be particularly efficient in our ways, wasting time on things that don’t require as much attention as they are receiving. With that thought in mind, let’s have a look at a few blog posts that address the issue of wasted time (and what you can do about it).

Bob Jones has a guest post up on John Chow dot Com that discusses what to think about when you sell your blog. You may remember Bob as the previous owner of JohnCow.com and in this article, he writes about some of the wasted time (and bitter headache) associated with the sale. Don’t repeat his mistakes.

Last but not least, we have Visionary Blogging, which posted five ways to not waste time in your blogging. Keeping up with blog posts can be pretty time-consuming, so these five tips should help you shave off precious minutes that you can use for doing something else.
