Blogging: How To Be Organised and Plan Your Posts

How To Organise Your Blog
When it comes to blogging, there is no right or wrong about how you stay on top of your game - as long as you do. A few days ago in one of the Twitter chats we were discussing issues related to time and blogging, organising and scheduling. There isn't even a tiny shadow of a doubt how familiar this topic sounds to every blogger. There are so many commitments that we have daily, which makes it almost supernatural to get every little thing done. Blogger's lifestyle is very busy! Do you blog whenever you please or do you plan your schedule? Are you more of a "whenever-it-strikes-me" or "I-got-it-sorted-a-year-in-advance" kind of a blogging girl/guy? If you are struggling with time management and would like to be more organised in your blogging life, read on ;)

Ok, we all are creative gals (or guys). Otherwise, we wouldn't be doing what we do. We get ideas from everywhere but sometimes they pile up into this lovely messy chunk just like clothes in a messy closet. Then we just rummage through this "pile" trying to find something to "wear". So yeah, it's time to clean and organise :) 
1) buy a notebook / notepad just for your blog and carry it with you everywhere you go;
2) get inspired by listening to, reading or watching something, going places, meeting with people;
3) browse Pinterest, Insta, Twitter - a single image can get you all hyped up and, voila, your post writes itself;
4) share something you are enjoying or have enjoyed - either it's a new bronzer or a fab shirt dress ;
5) read (and reply to) your comments, check if there are any requests - they would make brilliant posts;
6) what month is it - think anything Thanksgiving & Christmas (if you bake, I'll be the 1st one visiting your blog lol);
7) make a plan / chart / map / list (whatever works for you). Write down your ideas related to the post and break them down into paragraphs to make it more organised. Sometimes your post can be more photo-heavy with little text. No prob, take note of what you need to do (what elements to capture, location, day & time, links, etc.). 
Blogging Advice
Ok, this one, in particular, goes out to lifestyle bloggers :) There are so many topics we can write about - your options are limitless. Whenever I started blogging, I thought I would be strictly a fashion blogger (can you imagine that?!) :) Later I realized I really loved posting about makeup. Then I also learnt that I enjoyed writing "how to" posts and giving advice. On top of that, I am a foodie and love different recipes. Books, music and movies also excite me a lot! Yet, I am still crazy about style-related accounts and I plan to bring in more fashion posts to Miel and Mint in 2016. So there you go - being an #lblogger is amazing! :) However, there's one thing we all need to take on board whenever we plan our posts: make it relatable and show your voice/taste/skills/expertise. What I mean is: if I am good at baking, I will share my delicious recipes (I will, I promise haha), if makeup reviews are my strong suit, I will write those. I think it might sound too trivial and out-there but find your voice. I love it whenever I read a blog post, I can say: "This is amazing, it's so Bella / Kathryn / Kim / Gemma / Ela / Lauren etc." No matter what you decide to write about, the main things is you LOVE it and can't wait to share it. I always find myself intrigued - "What are they going to write about next" :)
How To Plan A Blog Post
Now it's dessert time! :) If your ideas are written down, you are planning to post this on Tuesday and that on Thursday, it's time to get your blog calendar built (I used Microsoft Excel to make mine #itworkswonders):
1) use a month-at-a-glance calendar and decide what days/dates you want to publish your posts;
2) write down your ideas next to the days/dates you picked;
3) think when you have time, write in bulk if you have a day off or a relaxing weekend coming up;
4) if you're stuck for words (when it happens, I can't squeeze out a single sentence lol) - edit photos :)
5) take your photos in bulk, especially at this time of the year when we only get daylight in the morning.

One blogger I met on Twitter once said that she had posts scheduled up until June 2016! O.o Needless to say, I was in shock haha. I mean, good for her. I, myself, couldn't go that far. But it does help to have a schedule and posts lined up for a few weeks or a month so you don't stress last minute. Here's the PrtScn of my scheduled posts last month. As you can see I have a lot less going on there than in September - only 7 posts comparing to 13 the month before. If you have been around for a while, then you know that last month I was at the hospital and suffered from terrible migraines for 2 weeks (without any relief). Later it was my hubby's birthday and we were away for half a week. That's why I scheduled less. November is looking a lot busier for me blogging-wise and I love that :)

  2. I really enjoyed this insightful and helpful post Nadia :)
    I try to schedule one month at a time, but just like you said in your previous post, sometimes real life gets in the way, but it's always good to have some posts on hand for days where you just don't feel like creating any.
    Loving the notebook tip - you really never know when inspiration strikes!
    Have a great weekend, and thank you so much for sharing all of this advice! <3 :D I really appreciate it!

    1. Thanks so much, Elizabeth, your comments always lift me up :) I completely agree with you on how good it is to have something pre-written & ready for those days when you know you need to post but can't produce anything new.
      As for the notebook - I have made a mistake of not carrying one with me everywhere a number of times and will not any more :) I noticed that ideas often start coming just whenever I go to bed so have to keep a little notepad, a pen or at least my phone beside me ;)
      Really happy you enjoyed this post. Have a fab weekend, girlie <3

  3. Great tips Nadia! I recently started using a blog calendar, and as I read through other blog posts or am browsing through my social media and get an idea I put it right into my calendar. At least the idea is there so I remember it and if I need to switch days or be more flexible I still can. I love that you chose to do a lifestyle blog as I love your blog because it covers so many different topics! I definitely agree with adding your own voice, I love being able to get a distinct idea of my blog friends personalities through their posts! Loved this! XO -Kim

    1. Thank you, Kim ;) I definitely agree that it's fantastic to write all the ideas down. You never know what post it will produce. Awww, thanks so much for liking my blog the way it is - lifestyle. I will definitely stick to that but will add fashion posts here and there because it would be fun for me to explore that area :)
      You can definitely tell who wrote a blog post by reading some of them. Sadly, some posts are very generic and feel like a copy of something I've already read a number of times. I don't tend to come back to those. I do like bloggers with personalities and when they write about what they love, not about what will be popular :)
      Have a really great weekend, lovely!

  7. Great post! I love seeing how other people organise their blogs. I always have the topic and title of my blog post sorted at least a month in advance, although I never actually write it until a week beforehand at most. I couldn't sleep last night so decided to plan what posts I was going to write for the remainder of this year, so I feel really organised now! Despite having not written them all, it's such a relief knowing what I am going to write. Like you, I use a notebook to keep note of it all. And I agree that taking it with you is always a good idea, you never know when inspiration will strike! There is nothing more irritating than having an amazing idea early in the day and having forgotten it by the time you get around to being able to write it in the evening. Again, really enjoyed your post! -driftinglexi at https://driftinglexi.wordpress.com/

      Also, I learnt it the hard way about not bringing my notebook with me a few times haha. Thought the idea was too brilliant to be forgotten.

    1. Awww thank you hon, you just made my day by popping over :) I started to get worried. Studies can be overwhelming so you definitely just take your time. I am glad you enjoyed this post, hon. Hopefully building a blogging calendar helps because it's so much nicer looking at it with all these posts filled in (still to be worked on, obviously lol) but it's better than deciding last minute what to write about. That's way to stressful.
      Anyway, hope you are doing great & enjoy your weekend! :)

  9. Great tips! This is super helpful as I'm quite new to blogging. Definitely need to start using some kind of calendar, everything is so clearly set out and easy to follow, compared to a bunch of scribble on a page (my current form of organisation!).

  10. Great post Nadia! I need to get more organised I'm terrible at the moment. I'm roughly planning a week in advance and that's it. It's been a little hectic at the moment my partner he just started a new job so it's had a little knock on effect. I plan on getting more organised next week and plan like you have on a calendar. Have a lovely weekend. Gemma xx

    1. I am glad this will come in handy for you, Gemma. If you know how to work Excel, you will build one in a minute. But it can be done with other programs too, or even done on a simple paper calendar - whatever works for you the best :) Hope your partner enjoys his new job and that you get things organised no prob, hon ;)

  11. I did buy myself a notebook to carry around but I'm terrible at remembering about it, and it's probably buried under some rubbish! I might buy a smaller journal instead that I could just carry around in a pocket :)

  13. Wonderful tips, I'm all ears (or eyes in this case) to seeing how others stay organised and hope I'll catch on eventually! Planning is key when it comes to blogging I feel, you have to plan to at least some extent... Recently I started uploading on set days and it's done wonders for my stats. I also feel more motivated to write now that I have a schedule! x

      What days do you post mostly? Do you set a certain interval as well?
      Having a schedule surely helps, girl :)

  15. This is what I really need to start doing better! I always get so caught up with some many other things that when it comes to writing a post I sometimes do it the day before it goes live. I try and aim for at least one blog post per week for now and hopefully step it up to twice a week eventually. I actually recently got a notebook and started writing my future posts down, which has definitely helped me with time management. These are awesome tips! Thank you for sharing.

  25. This was such a helpful post, dear! Normally I'm a very disorganized person, but I've been trying really hard to improve on that front in terms of blogging. I have a blogging calendar, but I don't often stick to it - sometimes life gets in a way and I can't publish something when I originally intended, or I think of a better idea for a post. So I'm definitely more of a 'whenever it strikes me' kinda of girl, haha. :P I admire people who can be so organised!! x

    Normally I schedule posts for a week or two so if I'm busy and I have lots of homework I still have content being posted. Whenever I feel inspired and I have a bit of spare time, I take my laptop and II write the hell out of me hahaha.

  35. Followed you on all your platforms and I loved this post! So very detailed and something that is so important to really know. Time management extends to everything, not just blogging! I think I probably only have like 3 posts scheduled but my goal was to get a whole month scheduled, twice a day. I can't believe that one blogger had posts scheduled until June 2016! Goals right there!

    You mentioned twitter chats...I'm sooo derpy at Twitter, I've heard of twitter chats but haven't taken advantage of them. Is there one that you normally go to?

    1. Aww thanks girl, so lovely of you to follow my blog & thanks for such a sweet comment ;)
      I defo agree that being organised goes beyond blogging. These skills come in handy when we plan the posts though ;)
      There are lots of Twitter chats, babe.
      I normally miss a lot of them haha, just always blank out cos I am doing something else at a time but I love #bdib, #bbloggers, #lbloggers & #crazybloggers :)

  37. The blog calendar is a great idea! I've decided to get a bit more organized and really need to start writing out my post ideas. Going to Pinterest and other sites for inspiration also really do work for me! Great post!

  38. This is such an helpful post! I try to stay organized as much as I can when it gets to blogging, but lately I just didn't have any time to dedicate to it because of university and work. And I know that with finals coming up, things won't be getting any better. I'm going to try to apply a few of your tricks and see if it works out for me! :)

  39. As a new blogger, this is very helpful! I feel like I have been really inconsistent on posting, depending on what and how much I have to write about. I have started carrying a little notebook in my purse to write down ideas as they come to me and I have started having at least 2 posts in my Drafts so I can space out my posts more consistently. Thanks for sharing this great information!

  41. Thank you for all these tips, as a new blogger I am terrible at planning! I can find myself thinking "oh, I haven't posted in a week, I should have something up today and I have no idea what", and I know that I have schedule and plan this a lot more than I do right now! My biggest problem with this though is that I'll think "oh, I will write about ... and I will get some great pictures for that while I'm there, great, than that's my next post" and then I'll come home without any great pictures and I don't have a post at all! I am planning on putting up a schedule and making more happen, maybe even this weekend and this helped so thank you! I plan on continuing my blogging a little bit more organized! ;)

  42. Надюша, мне как начинающему блогеру (я уже 2,5 месяца как блогер, сказал бы мне кто годом раньше, что такое возможно))) очень интересно было почитать) Стараюсь осиливать текст без переводчика) Планировать дело нужное, бывает тоже если есть время напишу поста 3 часика в 2-3 ночи, когда муж и сынок спят. Если на написание поста время нахожу, то вот коментировать других девочек часто не успеваю. А их так много и они так часто пишут)) Когда только успевают) С непоседливым сыночком многое не успеваю) Ты , умничка интересно и непринужденно пишешь) И самое главное больше не болей))

  43. This has helped me out a lot! I didn't know you could make a calendar with Microsoft Excel! I'm definitely going to try planning out my posts more. I'm in my final term of uni so I have a really busy schedule D:
