How do you manage to blog so regularly?
This is offten question I get.
My ansver is quite simple.
Because I enjoy blogging and I have routine to help me stay organized. And still having some sort of life. 🙂
In this post, I share my blogging routine and hope this inspire you to create your own routine that will help you stay on track with your blog.
Every now and then I decide to brainstorm. This means that I take some time for a little Googling and get some new posts ideas. I check the keywords through which visitors come to my blog, I also check comments on my blog and I try to remember the questions I get in my business – often there I get some great ideas. Then I write everything down in Meistertask.
When a new month starts its time to plan post for the whole month. For planning, I use my printable monthly tracker that my subscribers get every month (more). Although I have prepared a plan of my blog post for a month in advance I often change them when I start to prepare theme.
I write and create a new blog post in several parts. First I google, check and educate myself a little bit more about a new subject. Then I prepare a draft. And write.
Once the text is ready, I read it one more time, try to proofread it and check grammar.
I also prepare translation (Slovenian/English)
Order of writing and photography can be changed. Depends on the blog post I try to create my own photos or graphics. But sometimes I also find some great stock photos and use them in my blog post instead.
I check my blog post how it looks and edits it if needed. I also optimize it for Google (keywords, description, image titles and alt)… And when I’m satisfied with the blog, I schedule it.
For every blog post, I also prepare an email.
I prepare contents.
And schedule it.
One of the questions I often get is also how much time I spend to prepare a new blog post. It depends on a post and my inspiration. 🙂 But for e.g. Sunday’s post I spend:
Brainstorm: monthly 2 hours
Planning: 1 hour
Write: 2 – 5 hours
Photograph, graphics: 1 – 3 hours
Edit, SEO – 30min
Email – 15min
Promotion – 15min
4 – 9 hours altogether per blog post (Slovenian and English). Quite a lot of time, but if you divide it by days (especially writing) is much easier.
Do you have a routine for your blog? I’d love to hear all about them below!
