Hello and happy Friday. Today’s the first day of December Blogging Madness which is super exciting for me. I try to share with you blogging tips on stuff I’ve done that’s worked for me in case you want to start your own blog or have had one for a while but want advice to be more successful. A few months ago I wrote a post on tips for new bloggers and reviewers, so click here if you’re interested in checking it out. In today’s post I want to share what I do in terms of planning what I publish and how I keep organized.
I need lists for everything, I’m that kind of person, so obviously when I do my weekly planning, which is on Saturdays, I list all of my ideas for future posts.
As the week progresses, I either highlight the posts I’ve already written and scheduled, cross out the ones I’ve decided not to write, or add new ideas I get. On a good blogging day I get to write and schedule about five posts.
I schedule all of my posts, and I’m currently writing posts with two to four months in advance. I find that this is an advantage because I never have to worry about deadlines, I just write whenever I have time or whenever I want to, schedule the post, and once it’s published, I get a notification letting me know.
When I started this blog, I obviously had to write and publish new posts on the go, but I started scheduling them, and that helps me enjoy the blogging process a whole lot more. The posts that are not themed, or the ones that are not related to books, teaching, or makeup, are scheduled for July or December because I blog every day these months. This particular post, for example, is been written many months in advance. The future me should be very proud.
Now you tell me, if you have a blog, do you post on the go or do you have a more structured plan like the one I have? Let me know in the comments!
Love, Miss Camila
