I like to bulk plan my posts…a lot. It’s a way for me to safely know that I have blog posts ready to go up twice a week. Personally, for me, this makes me feel a lot less stressed because I am fully aware that there are blog posts going up which have been edited and are ready for publishing. I know that from the off bulk planning seems a little bit daunting but once you get into the swing of it and develop your system for doing it then it gets a lot easier. In this post, I’m going to tell you some of the tips I have for bulk planning.
HAVE IDEAS IN THE BANK
Sit yourself down with a snack and have a little brainstorming session. Make a list of blog post ideas and then plan them out. I tend to put my posts into categories such as lifestyle, health, uni etc. Google Keep is my saviour when it comes to keeping all of my ideas in one place and being able to tick them off as their planned out.
ALLOCATE SOME TIME
If your blog is a priority for you then put some time aside for it. Set out some space each week where you’re able to just sit down and get some bulking planning done. It can take some time to get these ideas and turn them into posts but it well worth it. I promise that when you’re like a month ahead with your posts it’s such an amazing feeling.
MAKE USE OF A CALENDAR
My calendar is my best friend most of the time. I plan my life out using the Google Calendar, this is probably the best calendar I’ve ever used and it’s really the only one I’ve stuck with. I put all of my blog posts into my calendar just so I know what goes up and when.
ONLY DO AS MUCH AS YOUR CAPABLE OF
It can be easy to be a little ambitious in your attempts to plan as far ahead as you can but be aware of overworking yourself. I tend to only be about a month or two ahead when it comes to my planning. Don’t try and force yourself into being half a year ahead because you might end up burning yourself out which is not what you want. So only plan as far ahead as you are comfortable with.
MAKE IT INTERESTING
Planning out blog posts isn’t the most interesting thing to do but that can be changed! But a film on while you do it or your favourite album. Treat it with positivity and don’t let it become some mundane task that feels laborious every time you do it. Put some fun into it and make it something that you enjoy doing.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope this post can help you with some bulk planning. See you tomorrow for another blog related post! Have a lovely day and stay beautiful.
