5 blogging tips I live by

Thursday, 21 January 2016


Blogging is a very time consuming thing, and it takes a lot of dedication, as I'm sure most of you reading this post will already know. You need to be able to stick to a schedule for posting articles on your blog, while also juggling social media, and interacting with other bloggers. When I started blogging, being organised was one of the things I struggled with the most, but over time I reckon I've improved quite a bit. I'm no blogging expert, but here are a few of my top tips;

Schedule your blog posts
I always schedule my blog posts a few weeks in advance. This is such a great thing to do, as it means that if anything ever comes up that sets me back, I'll know that I have at least 2 weeks until I need to create new blog content. It also takes away a lot of the stress/pressure of blogging, and makes the experience much more chill.

Write posts in bulk
Much like scheduling your blog posts, writing posts in bulk means that if you're busy or if something comes up that stops you from writing a post that week, you'll have backup posts. It can sometimes be tough trying to write tons of posts at once, so take it easy, but maybe the next time you go to write one post, write two or three. Your future self will thank you for it!

Use a diary/blogging planner
I have two great planners; one for reminding myself when I've scheduled posts for, and another for all the little behind the scenes activities I need to do in order to keep my blog running to its full potential. I find that using a planner has been really helpful to me for keeping on top of things, and avoiding feeling overwhelmed.

Have a notebook dedicated to blog post ideas
It's really important that you keep track of all your ideas and initiatives, as they can be a great bank to fall back on when you're facing bloggers block. I have two notebooks dedicated to my blog; one containing all my ideas, and another containing my blogging to-do list. It's such a great help to keep organised and ready!

Have some generic images set aside (desk photos that can be used for any kind of post)
This is another really important tip, which I honestly swear by. Just like I write posts in bulk, I also take photos and edit them in bulk. Just last month my camera broke (some kind of problem with the lens...) so I am soo relieved that I have about 20 photos that can be used for any kind of post, which should do me until I either get my camera fixed, or find a replacement.
