I’m sure if you asked a group of bloggers, “what is your blogging routine?” they would all give you different answers. Some may give you a daily plan whereas, someone may give you a monthly plan. You may get given an hour by hour explanation or you may get a brief overview.
I have read A LOT of posts (check out my blogging Pinterest board!) and have watched way too many Youtube videos on the topic. to save you the trouble I am going to show you my routine! My blogging routine is set over a week. So the steps you see are done day by day!
Pre- routine prep
I start off making my plan. I decided how many posts I ideally wanted to post each week. I chose one-two posts a week. I also sat and wrote a list of blog posts ideas and put them into categories! Websites like Trello and Asana are brilliant for this!
Then came producing my editorial calendar. Here I plan out every post I am going to write throughout the month and what social media posts I will be doing as-well.
** Keep an eye out for a blog post on this coming soon**
My blogging routine begins at the start of the month. I spend a few hours looking through and filling out my editorial calendar. Once all the blog posts have been I go over to Onenote and start to write notes or and outline on each post. This way I have a rough idea of what I want to talk about!
First, I start by doing any research I may need for the post! This can be researching photos, reading related articles, anything that can help produce good content. I make sure to write any bit of information down on my Onenote notebook!
Next, Is the fun part! I will get up a Google document and write everything I want to say on the document. I don’t worry too much about whether it makes sense or if I have spelling mistakes, I will go back and check that later.
Then the next step, is going through and piecing bits together. I will go through and produce the main body of my blog post. Now is when I will make sure things make sense and there aren’t any spelling mistakes.
Next, I go through and produce any graphics I need for my posts. I love to use Canva for a lot of these things. I will make Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram graphics as well as resizing any photos that need to go into the post! I then get these added into the posts, scheduled with their captions written and any hashtags added. For scheduling posts I use Socialpilot and Plann!
Finally, I go through and proofread the blog post on last, making sure everything looks good. I also like to make sure my post is as SEO ready as possible! **Post coming on this soon as well**
Work in progress
Although I have this routine, it is still a work in progress. Sometimes spelling mistakes slip through and I don’t notice them for a week or so.
