ON: Staying Blog Organised

Wow, I can't believe I've been posting daily for over 5 months now, how time flies. Anyway, I've learnt quite a lot about blog organisation since I first started writing posts. So, I thought I'd share some of my findings with you...

Write Posts In Advance. You never know what's going to come up, and to be honest some days I just don't feel like thinking of a blog post, taking the photos, writing it and publishing it, after a long day. I like to write my posts at the weekend and schedule them to go up everyday.

Schedule Tweets. I like to use Hootsuite. It's really simple to use, plus it's free! (If you don't use the bulk scheduler option.) I always schedule my posts to go up at the same time everyday, so it makes it easy to schedule tweets. I only schedule my link to go out once a day, so if I don't tweet anything 'live' it doesn't look too much.

Notebooks. Notebooks Everywhere. I literally have so many notebooks with blog related things jotted down in them. I have some for post ideas, another that acts as a diary - with the dates that specific posts are scheduled to go up on and another for any random blog related notes.

Take Photos In Bulk. Is the lighting particularly nice today? If so, why not take all of this weeks photos ready for the week ahead. There's nothing worse than having a post ready to go up, but not being able to publish it as you don't have a photo for it yet. 

Have A Few Draft Posts Ready On Hand. If all else fails and the scheduling goes out the window, have a couple of posts ready to publish, sat in your drafts. That way if you don't feel like blogging, you have a post ready that was written when you did.

  4. This post helps a lot! I just started blogging again and I've been in a rut. I am so unorganized right now.

  5. Some great tips here! I always try to have a few posts in my drafts to just polish up in case of a blogging emergency :)

  6. This post is so handy for reference! I'm a terrible blogger when it comes to consistency, and organising myself to blog more often is my biggest priority at the minute, so this has helped tons - thank you! : )

  7. Amazing tips! Thank you. Scheduling in bulk is great because like you said some days you don't feel like blogging or have other things to do.

  8. I always try to take photos in bulk. Lately, whenever I've seen the tiniest glimpse of sunlight, I collect everything up and start snapping away!
