My Blogging Tips & Tricks

I started my blog over a year and a half ago and, throughout that time, I have found some tips and tricks that certainly help with planning and posting. I know that some of you have (or are thinking about creating) a blog so I thought that it would be helpful if I shared some of my tips with all of you fellow bloggers.

Planning is a very crucial step if you want to alleviate stress and stay on a schedule. Without some form of planning process, I honestly don't know how I would be able to stay sane while releasing new content. I personally enjoy using a blogging binder. It makes it easy to know when to post and even keeps track of what days I should be active on social media. It has helped tremendously. I will also sometimes use just a notebook and it seems to work out just as well. There are many free downloadable blogging planners so I am sure that you will be able to find one that you like. If that doesn't work out then you can even create your own or use a notebook.

Sticking to a schedule, the thing that took me a while to do. As of now, I plan on posting every Sunday and Wednesday. I know that I have missed a few days but my schedule is still my goal. It took me a while to start posting on a schedule because, at first, I didn't really care about it but now I realize its importance. It helps me by holding myself accountable and it helps my readers by knowing when to check back for more content. Sticking to a schedule shouldn't be your top priority but it should definitely be thought of with importance. Using your planner would help greatly with reminding yourself.   

I struggle a lot with coming up with blog post ideas. In order to help with that, whenever I think of an idea, I try to remind myself to write it down because (knowing me) I'm sure I would forget it within the next ten minutes. Also, whenever I really need an idea quickly, I search for inspiration. Whether that be, Pinterest, other blogs, Instagram, you name it. It seems to help bring in a few new ideas.

Social Media:
Some might think, "Why do I need to keep up with my social media when it has nothing to do with my blog?". Answer: it does. A lot. Social media brings in new people, brings in returning people, is another form for people to keep up with you, and is a great marketing strategy. I don't have an issue with this because I personally love social media so I would use it anyway but for some, it seems to be another thing added to their to-do list. Using it doesn't mean you have to be on it 24/7 but it should mean staying up to date with it every now-and-then. It really does make a difference.
