Do you take the weekend off from writing?
Perhaps not all together - when inspiration strikes it strikes, after all. But do you take the weekend off from hubbing, blogging, general online writing, rather. Do you feel it effects your readers?
I unfortunately am stuck working my real job through the weekends, so I'm usually pretty tired by the time I get home and don't much feel like playing on the computer too much.. Today, I stopped and treated myself to a coffee on the way home from work so I'm a little more alert than usual (hence why I'm on here right now, on a Saturday evening) ..
I am trying to develop a writing schedule that I can stick to. My best writing days are when I don't have to work at all. I can actually relax and focuz without having to worry about other things, like my day job. My "weekend" is Tuesday & Wednesday (how I so look forward to the day when I can work mon-friday!) ..
I don't think it effects my hubs/readers. I don't have that many right now. lol.. I think my hubs are more polished and more engaging when I can dedicate the proper time to them.
It's hard to develop a schedule! I live with my boyfriend, and when we were both working, he wanted the time when we came home from work to be just our time, not quite understanding that when I have to write, I HAVE TO WRITE! Good luck on scheduling!
Sometimes I take the weekend off from writing, and sometimes I don't.
Normally I do not. I am usually on the computer 7 days out of the week. The only things which keep me away are my 3 meals and other chores/tasks.
I try -- writing is my real job, so I do try very hard to reserve the weekends for spending time with family instead of working. This rarely happens. I'm getting better about it, but we're in enough of a financial pinch that I feel the need to continue with whatever hours I have, regardless of how long it's been since a day off.
When it comes to writing hubs, I do so on Saturday unless something else comes up. I have a full time manufacturing job during the week, so my evenings during the week I use for responding to comments to my hubs, reading other hubs, and then writing if I'm currently working on a novel.
I've been recently jobless, and so I'm writing every day, at least online. I found that my views go down on the weekend. I assume its because weekends are just that. I used to be restricted to my "weekends", time off. It's hard to define when I shoul
I have noticed a slowing trend on weekends overall. With warmer weather coming, I think people are going to be outdoors more on the weekend. So, in general, I think it's more important to write on weekdays, but that's just my personal perspective.
Weekends I just check my e-mails and do any 'maintenance' necessary, or answer Twitter messages. I only spend an hour or so on the laptop and get back to enjoying the weekend asap.
Weekdays I get more involved, and update my book writing.
I do usually take the weekends off, though most of the time it's unintentional. Saturday and Sunday are some of the busiest times for my wife and I, so I just run out of time. But I do think that it benefits me, allowing for a sort of recharge period so I can attack my projects anew on Monday.

Does anyone else suffer from drop in traffic on weekend? I think its because most people are off work and go out shopping and socialising more..sorry this question may have been asked before

Mine almost always is. Once in a while, I'll have a $20 or $25 Saturday or Sunday, but otherwise, my weekend traffic and earnings are lower than they are during the week. How about you?

Sometimes after the news sometimes late real late, especially if I'm writing or gaming!

I myself work just about every day. Working at home every day is the same. In fact normally if I do something fun I do it during the week so there is less traffic and crowds. But I always spend at least a few hours...

What kind of weekly view fluctuations do you experience?I have noticed that I drop down to an average of 30 views (overall) per day during the weekend and then shoot up to about 100 a day by the middle of the week. This...
