I’ve realized pretty quickly that blogging takes a lot of work if you really want to commit to it. I have a lot to learn, but I’ve learned that organization is a must. Thinking of all the things I need to do for my blog has stressed me out a few times but in the end I’m doing this for my enjoyment and to connect with people and I love doing it! I’m also very committed to doing this and growing my blog though, so planning and organization is key. Planning posts, setting goals, even planning pictures to put with the posts and to put on Instagram are all things I’ve been doing lately. Here are some of the ways I’ve been trying to stay organized:
• Planner- I have a planner for school and then this big planner I got for scheduling when I’ll post blog posts and remembering which post it is.
•Bullet Journal- I just got this so I haven’t done anything with it yet but I plan to use it for more in-depth planning and tracking once I get the hang of it.
• Printable worksheets from other blogs- I’ve printed off a few things from other blogs this week to help with the blog post brainstorming and keeping track occasionally of how well my posts perform. They also help me to write out my goals and “action items” or things I need to do to accomplish them. You can find these easily by going onto Pinterest and typing in “blogging printables” or something like that. If you want to find out more about the ones I am using feel free to email me!
I thought the list would be longer but I’m just starting out so I’m still on the lookout for more ways to organize. How do you stay organized?
