Back in August I posted the question, how do you blog? Are you more of a planning ahead blogger or a day by day? I loved hearing all your comments and I talked about how I wanted to get more of a system in place and I'm here to report back on how I'm doing with that.
Basically I feel 100% better about my blogging system and I think I found the perfect solution for me. This post by sincerely, kinsey was incredible help to blogging with a busy schedule.
1. I've developed consistent topics for my blogging week that stay true to what this blog is all about. Its a plan that keeps me on point but still open whenever inspiration strikes.
2. Stay on schedule. I know what I love and what I want to cover in a week, and planning it out by day helps me stay focused. A typical week might look like this...
Monday - DIY
Tuesday - recipe / more flexible
Wednesday - fashion, outfit post, wants. etc
Thursday - house update
Friday - weekend links
3. Do it ahead of time.
I have been trying to stay a week or so ahead of my blogging plan. If I plan in advance, it allows me to be creative without being frantic the night before the post is due.
These three things have freed me up to love blogging and not be stressed about creating great content on the fly.
What do you think, would a blogging system be helpful for you or would you feel constricted?
