Step-By-Step Guide To Organizing Your Blog

Yay! I finally did it… did what you ask? I finally organized my blog for the remainder of the year. Now that may seem like nothing to you, but for me this is a HUGE small win. Since I started blogging this year, I’ve wanted to schedule my blog post in advance to be more productive.

Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead.

For some reason I continued to procrastinate week after week causing me to be overwhelmed when it came time to think of a blog post and then actually writing the post. I really want to be more organized in my business and personal life, and for me scheduling my blog post is just the beginning.

To get started I Googled “how to create an editorial calendar,” and I found this great article that walked me step-by-step through the process.

Here’s What I Did…

  • I sat at my desk for about 45 minutes or so and wrote out blog categories and blog titles that I wanted to share with my readers.
  • I decided to use a separate Google Calendar specifically for blogging just to make my life easier.
  • Next, I added my list of blog titles to the remaining Tuesday’s in 2014 to my calendar, since that’s my blog post day. (There are 18 Tuesday’s left in 2014 if you care to know)
  • I then added a brief description of each blog post title in the description box, so I would have a few ideas to work with when it’s time to write the post.
  • Lastly, I scheduled out blocks of time in my calendar to write my blog post throughout the week, this way I’m not waiting until the last minute.

Viola! My blog post are now scheduled and organized for 2014. :) Now that my blog post are scheduled, I just need to write the post, that should be the easy part, right?

If you’re a blogger, do you use an editorial calendar? How do you stay organized in your business and personal life?
