Keeping organised is something which I have to do as you know I am a Mummy, Student and blogger. This can take up a lot of time meaning that being organised is key. Today I am going to share how I keep organised on my blog I am thinking about doing posts on how I keep organised in other elements of my life in future posts,
The first thing which I spend a lot of time doing is scheduling tweets. I try and do at least 3 days worth of posts because it means that more of you lovely people are able to read my blog. I can see a lot of you come from my social media pages. Currently, I use buffer which allows me to schedule all of the tweets along with Facebook. One thing which I love is that I can use the app which means that I can schedule my social media when I am on the go which as you know is a lot. There is also hootsuite which you can use instead of buffer however, this is not something I have tried.
Planning is something which I have to do because other use I would never be able to get my posts up. I currently have the dot creates ultimate blogger planner. This does have the days of the week and you can write the posts you want to be able to get up. It also has a to-do do list which allows you to tick them off as you have done them which is amazing it makes you feel like are actually getting somewhere which is something. It also has weekly stats for your social media which is good because I am someone who does not think that I am growing on social media. This element allows me to see that I am actually growing on a weekly basis. I might do a whole post on my planner and how I actually use it let me know in the comments if this is something you would like to see.
I try and write at least a little bit per day because then it does not feel like it is so daunting when you know you need to get a post up. Some of the posts I write can take 3-4 hours which I do not have time to write in one sitting. I have found that using the app called blogtouch pro is a savour because I can write on my phone a draft. Then when I use a laptop I can edit and add pictures which saves me so much time. I do a lot of the posts sitting on the train which means that it is not time wasted. It does save me looking out of the window a lot of the time.
Taking pictures in bulk is something which I do because it means that I have pictures ready for when I have time to write. Due to the fact that I am hardly at home, it means that I have to take all the pictures on the weekend. I do not have time to get my background out and lights on a night. This also helps me know what I should publish in the next couple of weeks because I already have the pictures so I can post ASAP or schedule it to go live. Scheduling is something which I have to do . I try to make sure that I am a couple of weeks ahead should life get crazy busy it does mean that I have content going up.
How do you get organised if you are a fellow blogger?
