If you’re just starting out with your blog and you are finding it difficult to maintain, then perhaps this post will help.
I was inspired to write this after reading Michelle’s post over at the Daily Post about creating a blogging calendar on the weekend. I happened to comment on my workflow, she liked it, so I thought I’d share it with all of you.
I work during the day, and I have a family that I LOVE to spend time with, so I have come up with a schedule that incorporates a different theme for each day of the week. It’s simple and attainable, so it works well for me. For example:
Monday – post a street photography series;
Tuesday – post a single image that has to do with a street or neighbourhood;
Wednesday – open topic day, to give me some flexibility;
Thursday – post photography tips/resources that I use and think others might benefit from;
Friday – post day for my personal black and white photo challenge.
I take weekends off.
It’s pretty basic, but it helps take the guess work out of blogging.
The other thing that I do is write all of my posts over the span of one or two nights a week. That way it doesn’t feel like a job. I also keep notes in my Gmail, so that when it comes time to get down to work at the computer, I don’t draw a blank.
As usual, I would really like to hear about what works for you, and if you’re struggling, ask a question in the comments and I’ll do my best to help you out, and maybe others will chime in as well.
I always love hearing from, and chatting with, each of you. You guys make this blogging thing so much fun.
