I have found that having the TV on while trying to blog is distracting. Lately I have turned the tube off in favor of listening to NPR online or a good podcast like “Welcome To Night Vale”.
What’s been on daytime TV lately hasn’t done anything to inspire me. Watching the news can be depressing sometimes and some non-news programming I have found to be repetitive.
There is a correlation between no TV and better blogging. I am more creative and the dialogue helps inspire me to compose better posts. As I have written in earlier posts having a desktop configuration has also helped me focus on what I am doing.
So friends, turn off the TV unless you can multi-task. You will find you can create better posts and it will improve what you are doing online.
