how to stay organised with your blog


As many of you have realised, I decided to daily blog throughout the month of August as I had a desire to do so and wanted to do a whole month of blogging like I would do in December for Blogmas. In terms of being a blogger, especially if you are a full-time blogger it bows down to organisation. Organisation is key, I am not a full-time blogger more part time but throughout the 2 years I have been blogging especially the beginning of this year, I have made organisation a key factor in managing my blog which has benefited me immensely.

Buy yourself a journal/notebook/diary

Purchase a notebook that allows you to write down as many ideas as possible for blog posts, Instagram photos or Pinterest posts. In this notebook, I like to write a few blog posts ideas – I also like to write about what I would like to include in the post and how I would like my photos to look. I also like to include Instagram photos in here as well, such as what photos I’d like to post and fit it around my schedule. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t also stick to an Instagram schedule but I try so hard to. The good thing about having a journal, I am able to cross out anything and change it whenever I want. Also, I can decorate the inside and make it as fancy as I want to.

Plan your blog posts via a monthly basis

At the end of each month, I like to spend a couple of days planning the upcoming month worth of blog posts. Obviously, there are many things in life that do cross over with writing down posts, but I try as much as I can to stay organised with blogging. For example, in the month of July I spent the last two weeks writing down daily blog posts alongside a few Instagram photos that I wanted to feature.

how to stay organised with your blog

Use a reminder/to-do list app on your phone

Most of the time I don’t have enough time to spend in a week writing down blog posts but I usually do everything on the weekend. So in order to make sure that I don’t miss anything out in terms of tasks to do for my blog, I like to spend most of my weekend planning which brings me on to bulk photo taking.

Take photos in bulk

On my weekends, especially on a Sunday. I like to spend most of my morning and early afternoon where the Sun is bright to take Instagram photos and blog photos. If the weekend ahead looks very busy and I know I won’t be able to take photos throughout the week, I aim to take photos that will last for at least 2 weeks. On the same day I like to edit some of the photos on my laptop, but Instagram wise I always like to edit my photos on Adobe Photoshop Express on my phone.

Schedule your posts and tweets

It was only until May, I realised that my Blogger settings were not correct hence why I couldn’t schedule my posts so I had to manually post my posts up – moral of the short story is, check that your settings are correct. I like to schedule some of my posts throughout the week but more importantly my tweets via Buffer. This is the best app for scheduling tweets – I like to use this to increase the traffic and make sure that my posts are available to everyone!
