Hi everyone! It’s Zielle, with a huge burst of blogging inspiration. Today I’m going to be talking/writing about the importance of maintaining a blogging schedule that works for you, and your blog. I’m also going to fill you in on how I did my schedule.
I did mention that I had no post ideas, but I guess I just hadn’t been trying hard enough, because BAM I’ve scheduled posts all the way up to late June. #soproudofmoi
|you won’t run out of post ideas for a long time|
I’m saying this because it’s true for me. I find that when I sit down and just let my thoughts take over, I can find the things I never thought of blogging about
because oh the monstrosity of it all, are actually worth blogging about. I removed all distractions when I sat down to brainstorm, and what do you know? I have 29 quality posts scheduled already. now to just need to carry them out And you can do it too.
Here are a few ideas to get you started. Write about…
- your life
- your achievements
- how you solved a problem and how others can do it too
- memories of your childhood/younger childhood (I find people like reading this especially since kids think of the funniest things XD)
- lists (e.g reactions to, pros and cons of, best things to in… etc)
- how-to (e.g basics of piano (or anything else you’re good at), write a good short story, bake a unicorn cake, feed a unicorn etc)
Your blog is about who you are. Your unique self. Your experiences and how you solved a problem.
You can literally take anything, and make it into a blog post worth reading.
|you’ll be consistent = increase followers|
This is true, actually. If you have a schedule to post once a week or twice a week, on the day you won’t be struggling to come up with a post idea. It’s already there. While you had the inspiration you wrote it down, and now you have a blog post. That’s why planning ahead is essential if you don’t want to stress yourself out.
I also wrote down parts of my post in my diary as sort of an outline.
But, if you miss a day, don’t stress. There’s always tomorrow.
or next week That’s why you need to realize, and help your readers realize that your schedule is flexible, and one day, there might not be a post. *que the dark music*
|you’ll feel proud of yourself and accomplished|
Especially once you’ve completed a month of your schedule. 🙂
|it’ll push you to do harder to achieve posts, because you can plan for it |
i have no gif for this
If I thought of baking a unicorn cake on the day I’m supposed to post, I probably wouldn’t be able to do it since I most likely won’t have all the ingredients. But if I planned for it, I could definitely do it.
I’ve put all my harder to achieve posts further down the bottom of my schedule so I know to be prepared.
Making the blog schedule
Making the schedule is super easy. Just be aware that the posts you post on the day are more important than the day you will post the post.
Make a list of all your post ideas. This will be pretty easy once you sit down. Take inspiration from the funny things your nephew is saying to you. Take inspiration from watching YouTube channels. Take inspiration from reading other blog posts, and being aware of your surroundings.
Write down the dates that you will be available to post. Don’t make the posting gaps too long, but not too short since life needs you more than your blog. 😉
Add the posts to the dates. Keep your schedule flexible. Be sure to leave a few dates empty for improvising or if you have an idea for a post you just HAVE to do right away. 🙂 For the harder to do posts, put an easier post underneath it in case you happen not to be able to that post.
If you’re indecisive, maybe the post-it note schedule will work for you. 😀
Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed this post. I’m certainly NOT a professional and I do have my writing blocks
a lot , but this is a reminder that you can do something to make your blog better! 🙂
~ Smile! God loves you. ~
