Blogging can be difficult, especially if you are busy with other things like your job and family. To organize your blogging schedule is a solution, but sometimes that can be messy too. Today I want to share with you how I organize my blogging schedule with these cute blog post calendars that I created for myself. I print them out and use them to track what I’m going to talk about every day. Sometimes I have no time and I have to skip posting, however having a schedule programmed helps me a lot. To be organized is paramount to be able to be a happy writer.
Let’s take a look at my blog post calendars and then I’ll tell you how I organize myself. Perhaps this will come in handy for you as well.
This is the monthly schedule that I use to write the titles of the posts that will appear on my blog. I might modify the titles and the final content later on, but this allows me to have a pretty good idea of what I will end up writing about. My problem is I want to write about too many things in a very short time, and I have no time to do it! So, I have to decide when to write and publish the ideas that come to my mind and that I want to write about.
Then I use the week calendar to refine my ideas and the contents. This helps me not forgetting what my idea was about and what I wanted to say. And yes, I end up printing more of these than the monthly one, obviously.
So, basically what I do is to write down on a normal sheet all my ideas and topics so that I can remember all of them. Then I sort them out throughout the month, and then I use the week calendar to keep track of the original ideas for every post. Of course, after a while, my ideas mutate and change. But I think that’s cool since it gives spice to my posts.
I won’t let you see any spoilers, but it actually looks like this for me:
Here I don’t include the flash ideas that I might have and that I might end up adding on a given day. I need more hours in the day to be able to write all the things that I have in my mind and that I’d love to share. But, I am happy I use this simple system to keep track of everything and know what to post when.
