If you have a blog you should really consider having a blogging schedule. This goes beyond simply having an editorial calendar. There are some steps you should follow in order to hold yourself accountable and have the best blog you possibly can. Here’s how to create a blogging schedule.
You should focus on quality over quantity. If you think about the blogs you visit, most likely you don’t even pay attention to how often they are posting, but you know to expect quality posts from them. Once a week is okay if your post is very detailed and offers a lot of value. Don’t just keep posting generic posts. Teach.
Stay consistent. Your readers may not notice that you are writing three posts a week, but you will. If you start slacking, you can easily get behind and not post content for a while. If you commit to a certain amount of posts sometimes it may be a little less or a little more, but you won’t have a huge two-week gap where you made zero content.
Work in bulk. I love working in bulk, I get so much more done this way. It became second nature to me as a freelance writer, as I often write my clients posts in bulk. If you do crafts or recipes on your blogs this can be super helpful as well. Schedule one big day to do all the projects.
Set deadlines. You may freelance write on the side like I do. You should also have deadlines for your own work and stick to them. You’ll get a lot more done.
Try to have one really great post per week. You’ll want to optimize it for social media, especially Pinterest. Roundups and recaps are great but you shouldn’t do that for all your posts for the week. Great original content will keep readers coming to your blog and converting into customers.
With these steps, you should be able to be setting a blogging schedule that you follow every week and month consistently. Blogging isn’t easy and it requires a lot of commitment. The easiest way to do that for most people is to create habits that become routine. These steps should help you do that and make sure you see success sooner rather than later.
