My Blogging Routine

Friday, 15 April 2016

Hiya Dolls!

I have been blogging for just over a year now, last week I was thinking about how different my blogging routine is compared to when I first started so I thought I would share with you my blogging routine.


Blog Schedule - I have changed my blogging schedule so many times since starting my blog, as I am trying to figure out what works best for me and my blog. Currently I am posting on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. 

Organising Posts - I prefer to organise my posts instead of waiting until the day, I think personally for me it increases the quality of the post as it gives me longer to perfect the vision I have. What I like to do to organise posts is to write a list of the ideas I have and then select from that list. 

Scheduling/Planning - I bought an Erin Condren Life Planner at the beginning of the year to organise not only my life but my blog. I use my planner to schedule what post is going up on what day. I especially like to do this on the monthly overview so I can pencil in the posts to pre write them.

Photography - I take all of my blog photos on my iPhone 6, and edit them using only 2 apps on my phone, you can see how I edit my photos here. I like to take my pictures for the posts before writing it  because I like to see my post come together whilst I am writing it.

Writing/Content - After taking the photos I start to write the post, I will first write a rough draft, a big mug of coffee is always essential during this section! I will then re-read the post so I can make any necessary adjustments. 

Promotion - After I have published my post I then promote it, I share my new posts on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. I also like to take part in relevant twitter chats as they're a great way to chat to other people in the blogging community and to also make other people aware of your blog. Throughout the week I like to use Bloglovin to read and comment on other peoples posts. 

Do you have a specific blogging routine?

    1. Thanks lovely, I find being organised as a blogger makes everything so much easier. Although I do sometimes miss a day here or there as it is quite a lot to post in a week haha! -xo

  2. Lovely post, we actually have a similar blogging routine. I also like to take pictures before I even start writing my post and I use my iPhone because I think it actually does a very good job. I am very impressed with the amount of times you blog in a week - I definitely can't do that!

    1. Thank you! I find taking the pictured before writing allows you to see the post come together much more smoothly. iPhone cameras are really good these days although I do really want a fancy slr haha.
      I must admit i do sometimes miss a day here or there because it is so hard to keep up with sometimes -xo

  3. My blogging routine was non-existent when I started, so I'm very glad I have one in place now. I use a diary to keep track of when I'm posting what & have finally found an upload schedule that works for me (though I'm toying with adding another post per week!). My schedule also includes setting tweets for the day ahead & reading other people's blogs. Xx

    1. I was the exact same when I first started blogging. Keeping a diary is so beneficial, I would be lost without my planner telling me what to post and when! Scheduling posts is something I haven't actually done but but info want to give a go! I find commenting on other people's blogs is so important! Xx

  6. I can't really have a routine because I work full time and some times do overtime so work cuts in to my personal life sometimes, I also can get so tired some days that all I prioritise is sleep, I wish I did have more of a routine when it came to blogging but it mainly just runs on when I have time.

    1. I best working full time and blogging is tough! You can schedule posts to go up if that would help you when doing over time. Thats what I'm planning on doing when I get a full-time job -xo

  7. I wish I had a better routine for blogging, hopefully I'll be able to incorporate some of this organisation into my own blogging routine. Thanks for sharing!

    1. For me organisation is key, for instance I haven't planned or been that organise last week and I missed two posts in a row including today! I need to get back on my blogging game! -xo
