Blogging Tips for Busy People

Blogging Tips for Busy People – I absolutely love posts like this, I love reading them and I love writing them!

It’s always fun to share tips on how to stay organised when blogging but the main thing for me is knowing that someone out there could benefit from this type of post and it makes it all the more worthwhile! 🙂

Since I decided to blog full-time, I’ve had to up my game! I’m now at a stage where things are getting a lot busier so here are my blogging tips for busy people.

Blogging Tips for Busy People – Organisation

This is KEY to any successful blog – when you’re organised you can work a lot more efficiently, knowing that everything is organised allows you to keep on track of your schedule and helps you remain focused with blogging.

Have different notepads and diaries – one for your blog contacts, one for your post scheduling and another for your blogging ideas – you never know when you might get that ‘light-bulb’ moment for a great blog post!

I also like having my desk space organised, it’s so much nicer sitting down to a tidy/neat desk – a few candles, flowers and little accessories/blog props can help to brighten your mood but will give you that inspiration when it comes to blogging.

Blogging Tips for Busy People – Planning Your Posts in Advance

If you’re a busy person then planning your posts in advance will really help you out – it all comes back to keeping things organised but it seems a lot of people tend to skip this…..

By writing and planning your posts in advance means that you can select the day/time of when posts will appear online. Try and plan for a week or two in advance – this is a great way to take a couple of days off if you’re feeling unwell but your blog will still be ‘working‘ and publishing posts as normal.

What I tend to do is post one fashion post followed by a beauty or lifestyle post – provide variety for your readers as it’ll keep things interesting and will also allow you to write about different topics and reach a wider audience too!

Blogging Tips for Busy People – Take a Break

Yes!

From time to time you need to take a break – working continuously for hours won’t do you any good!

So turn off your laptop and go and grab a coffee with some friends, go shopping, spend time with your family or simply go and browse through new beauty launches to write about on your blog!!

🙂

I always love hearing from you and reading all your comments so please let me know what you think!

    Love these tips, since I work full time and blogging is just a hobby (for now at least :)), I always schedule my blog posts in advance! Recently I have taken a break which was much longer than I anticipated, but I am working my hardest to get back on track and publishing posts 3 times a week! Any tips on scheduling social media? I used to use hootsuite, but recently I haven’t been able to schedule feeds for blog posts that are still scheduled properly.

      Hahaha yaaaaaaay – I think scheduling them in advance is a great way to go, not only does it help you get sorted but it helps you stay on track and in schedule!

      Ah – are you thinking of blogging full-time!? You should!! I can write a post about social media if you like…. 🙂 xxxx

    Yes, organization is key! I like keeping all my things in one notebook (rather than having several) because it’s nice to know that everything is in one place. And sometimes carrying around multiple notebooks makes me feel a little more overwhelmed because it feels like there’s more work to be done, too much work. It’s also nice to have a notebook on hand, because that means you can use every spare moment to keep creating, whether you’re waiting for your food to arrive at a restaurant or if you’re waiting for the bus. Thanks for sharing your tips! My schedule will be getting busier with school starting in a few weeks 😛 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    I definitely agree it’s not just about organising everything sometimes you need a break…but organisation is key too and scheduling and planning, sometimes I really struggle but once you have the balance right it’s okay xx

      Ah thank you so much – yes you do need to find the right balance and I think it’s good to have about 2 weeks of posts written up and scheduled, then everything is a lot easier to go with and makes it all work better! 🙂 xxx

    Planning ahead is so important. When you plan ahead and you organise your days to write and take pictures, you’re set. It’s so much easier!
