No matter how hard you try to keep up with social media and blogging, sometimes life will just get in the way. What should you do when you miss a day or two of posting or even worse a week or two? Here is how to get back on track after messing up your postings schedule for your blog or social media.

Regroup
Do you know why you messed up your schedule? Are you burnt out and stressed, busy, or just being lazy? You need to try your best to commit to your readers. You may need to adjust your strategy in a way that will work for you going forward. Perhaps you should start working in batches on the weekend instead of attempting to post daily without anything planned ahead of time. You also might want to invest in a planner:

Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly Planner, Smart Blog Planner, EPIC BLOG: One Year Editorial Planner, or Michael’s Recollections Planner


Look at your notes
Get in the mood to write. Put some focus music on from Spotify if that’s your thing. Take a look at your editorial calendar or whatever notes you have for your blog. If you don’t have anything, do a brain dump in a Google doc and see where that takes you.

Headline analyzers
If your main problem is you don’t know what to write about, try a headline analyzer or answerthepublic.com and get some ideas flowing. Some won’t apply but others will.

Outline
Create an outline for your post so you don’t just ramble on and on. Have an idea where you are going with the post. It will have better readability if you outline it first.

Write
Get writing. It’s okay to write a “shitty first draft.” You will have to edit it before posting anyway.

Post
Post or get it scheduled.

Social Media
Promote on social media. Consider getting
Tailwind for Pinterest as this will probably help you gain traffic.

No matter how hard you try to keep up with social media and blogging, sometimes life will just get in the way. With these steps, you can get back on track after messing up your postings schedule.

If you are interested in starting a blog of your own, I created a tutorial that will help you, How to Start a Blog. If you are asking yourself “Can you seriously make money blogging?” My main tip is to be self-hosted. This is essential if you want to monetize your blog. It also makes you look more professional to companies you will partner with. Blogging income won’t happen unless you are self-hosted. You can pick from these links: Bluehost,  or HostGator.
