How do you blog?

Recently I read this post about blog brainstorming from a beautiful mess and thought it was an interesting approach to blogging.  They sit down and plan out the entire month's posts. Can you imagine being that organized? 
 Erin at elements of style  blogs about whatever she feels like that morning, I feel like I fall more into this category. 
I've been trying to develop a better blogging system since fall coming and life doesn't look like its going to slow down any time soon and I'm interested to know, how do you blog? Do you have a great system for planning ahead, or do you just blog day by day? Let's chat about it.

I too kind of just go with the flow, but if I get an idea a few days ahead, I just plan it for that week!

I try to do 2-4 posts for the week on the weekends, and schedule them ahead of time. Then, when I get inspired or want to write about something that day, I'll post about that too! Planning ahead on the weekend is essential for me because I am very busy with school/work. I WISH I could plan a month ahead! :)

Nat said...

I wish I could be that organized!! I pretty much just write what I feel that day but then when I'm busy blogging goes to the way side so I'm trying to adopt a schedule starting in September

Alexa said...

Day by day. I am NOT that organized at all. It would be nice!

I do a weekend recap every Monday and outfit posts every Wednesday and Friday, but Tuesday and Thursday are up in the air. I kind of just go with it, but I never pre-write out my posts...I do them one by one as the week goes along. I wish I were more organized too!!

I wish I could plan an entire month in advance! Real weddings posted on Wednesdays are planned in advance but the other days, it's usually day by day. A week in advance if I'm really organized & lucky!

Hannah said...

Ah I don't know how I feel about planning blog posts a month in advance. It just seems way too rigid for me. Plus, I enjoy feeling like I am living the writer's life along with them so current posts are the ones I like to read the best. I try to plan at least 2 posts on the weekends but sometimes time doesn't allow and I have to go day by day! It can be stressful at times, and I'd like to plan more on the weekends, but for now I'm okay with it!

This is tough...it's obviously different for everyone though. I try to plan out my posts a week in advance, but I'll change my editorial calendar if I'm just not feeling a post that day. But I love how they brainstorm about ideas! I need to get more organized with that one ;)

I am definitely a planner when it comes to blogging. I usually get bursts of inspiration and knock out 5-10 posts in one sitting. I always have a few spur-of-the-moment posts but then I have plenty of posts in reserve :) Its the only way that works for me and my sanity!

Becky {The Pumpkin Spot} said...

I think a mix of both is great. I love to post in advance, but it doesn't feel as natural as posting on something you are inspired by at the moment. I need to be a better blog post planner.

Angela said...

I don't think I'll ever be organized enough to plan the whole month! Usually I make mine the night before and schedule a post so it's fresh in the morning. I've planned a full week a few times which is nice but I usually end up altering it to fit something else. If I want to feature someone and need to ask for photos I contact them a week before. I'm definitely open to adopting a new system!

I never plan ahaead. I usually wrote my posts the night before or morning of. I was I was disciplined enough to plan ahead!

Lexi said...

I usually have about a week's worth of posts in advance, though I'm big into blogging on a whim too. I don't think I could ever be organized enough to have a month's worth of posts!

Becca | Lowlife Couture said...

I just started adding post topics to my ical. I have them planned out about three weeks, but not written yet. The hardest part for me is that I think of something and then I forget about it, or have writers block. So, far I think this is going to be a happy medium for me. Helps me to plan some, but still have freedom to change if I get inspired.

Tiffany Leigh Interior Design said...

Imagine planning a month in advance? Holy smokes, things would run much more smoothly. I try to get most of my posts done a week in advance, but it rarely happens. Just keep doing what you're doing! We love your blog.

Carly Holstein said...

A month is a very loooonnng time. I do a combo though of planning and on the spot. The key: always have a post it note near by when a random idea for a blog post comes up!

Laura said...

I deeeefinintely dont plan a month ahead of time. whenever i get a good blog idea i write it on a postit note and stick it in my planner- or when i see and etsy shop or something that is lovely i bookmark it! other than that, the only smart blogging thing i do is make multiple recipes on the weekends so i have a backlog in case time gets away from me!

Gaby [The Vault Files] said...

I usually have the whole week done by Sunday, with only my Friday's post to be done the day before. My weekdays are always busy and my mind is always creating, so I get down and work as soon as I get an idea. I'm kind of organized and I always like to revisit a draft before publishing it ;) Having said that, I've never scheduled a post before, not sure I trust that! Plus, I think they do show up on reader but not on the blog, which is annoying if you want to leave a comment, because you then forget to revisit the post the next day!

Ashley Aspinwall said...

It depends, I try to keep my outfit post spontaneous so it becomes a little hard to plan that far in advance, but usually I have a 24hr turn over rate. Sometimes I'll file away posts to have for those times I get a little busy and need to just throw something in there :)

I definitely just blog about whatever I feel like that morning. I wish I was more organized, but if I overthink it, I always end up hating it.

Holly said...

Excellent question! I was just posting when I first started and then I tried to get more structured and started an editorial schedule - well that just felt too constraining to me and forced. So I'm back to blogging when I can and that's what works for me. I had started a few series and I would like to get back to those when I have some time.

Luci said...

I just found your blog; it's so fun!
I try to have ideas (and preferably, though not always) pictures by the end of the weekend. I do a "Fun Fact Friday" and I don't always know what I'm going to write about (sometimes it hits me late Thursday night), but I'm working on that!
Generally, I write up the posts the day before. I like writing them as I go so that I can be more connected to my readers. I find that when I write the posts too early, they feel more distant. Besides the plan for the week, however, there's always the posts that I want to do "soon," so maybe that is where we verge onto the more long-term planning.

Soma affects the functioning of skeletal muscles and starts to work quickly after being taken by mouth. It interrupts the electrical signals from the nerves in the skeletal muscles to the brain preventing the brain from registering pain. http://copybase.org/ - carisoprodol no prescription These side effects are all very minor and are outweighed by the benefits that Soma can provide for those suffering from muscular injuries. An upset stomach may occur while taking Soma which may result in vomiting. You can order cheap Soma Carisoprodol medication at one of reliable online pharmacy! Soma for sale.

Soma online Soma is a muscle relaxer that is used to treat muscular pains, strains, and injuries. [url=http://copybase.org/]order carisoprodol[/url] By relaxing the muscle and bringing it out of its spasming Soma can not only aid in relieving the pain but allow other treatments to be used that cannot be performed while the muscle is in a contracted state. This is where Soma can help with the situation. These side effects are all very minor and are outweighed by the benefits that Soma can provide for those suffering from muscular injuries.
