Hey guys! Welcome back. I am here today again to talk about how I plan and organize the content I put out. If you have been around for a while you know that I do my very best to post at least once a day. Lately, thanks to planning and having guest writers, I have been able to post more than once a day which allows me to bring you even more content. So today I thought I would share with you how I do it and what tools I use to help me be efficient and productive.
1. Master List.
The very first thing I wanted to share that helps me a lot is I have a master list of blog post ideas that I can write about. This list was started when I started blogging and I just continue to take from it and add to it over time. This is a big help because I never run out of topic ideas. So when I get an idea or someone requests something, I write it down and when I am looking for something to write about I go to the list and pull from it.
2. Plan It.
At the start of every week I go through my planner and write out what I want to write about that week. I put down what posts will go out on what day. This just keeps me organized and helps me know what I need to be writing and when. Of course, sometimes things change and my planner is full of things being marked out, but it’s just knowing that there is a loose plan that helps keep me sane.
3. Put it on the calendar.
Because if it’s on the calendar, it has to get done right? Google Calendar has really saved me. I can schedule times to write, times to meet with people, and times to do everything else I need to do. It helps me stay organized and know exactly what I need to be doing and when. So I know if I need to write a blog post at a certain time that I can’t schedule something else. It also works the opposite way. The calendar allows me to take what is in my planner and assign it a specific time frame.
And that is basically how I plan and organize my content. I pull ideas from my master list, put them in my planner according to how I want to put them out that week, and then I plan when I will write them, post them, and promote them. It’s a pretty simple system, but super effective. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let us know in the comments if you have you own system. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
