Life of a blogger depends on what stage of life the blogger is in. Here, we talk about two stages. A blogger in college and a blogger as an IT professional. We are sure that you must have many interesting things to share as your life as a blogger.
Go ahead and read what goes on typically in the life of a blogger
Life of a blogger as a college student
7:00 am: Sleeping. Night commenced about 3 hours back after an enthusiastic 5 hours of blogging, chatting and orkutting and consciousness is still at least 4 hours away
8:00 am: Shit!! College. Classes begin at 8.30. what day is it? Wednesday?? What?? Wednesday!! Internal assessments day. Haven’t studied a thing. Bunk!! Back to bed sweet bed.
11:00 am: Drag body out of bed. Brush teeth, go to the mess to have breakfast and get kicked out for asking for breakfast when its almost close to lunch time
11:30 am onwards: Switch on the computer, log on to orkut, yahoo messenger and blogger – no one online. Sigh!! Why does everyone have to go to college?
Log on to blogger and write an aimless, purposeless pointless post about how boring life is and bitch about hostel and college and post it. Click on the link of each and every blogger on your blog and read his/her blogs to see if they have updated. If they have, then read and leave a comment. If not leave a comment on their latest blog asking them to write. 😛
Now click on the links of other bloggers pages and browse through all blogs.
2:00 pm: Have lunch.
3:00 – 6:00 pm: Sleep and if awake make fun of friends who wasted time going to college.
6:00 pm onwards:
Click on Technorati and check out all the people who are linking to your blog.
Browse all blogs and see if anyone has any widgets which you would like to use on your blog.
Add new widgets to your blog.
Add a shout box to your blog and shout in the shout boxes of all the people who have a shout box.

Use Polldaddy to create useless polls and display them on your blog and let people vote.
Go to Feedjit and get a live in feed for your blog and find out who visits your blog and from which part of the world.

9:00 pm: Dinner
