How do you stay organized with your blog especially with being a stay at home mom? That’s what I get sometimes by other blogger and friends. To be honest I’m surprised with myself when it comes to staying organized because there are days where I have no motivation to do anything.
I know that blogging is a lot of work, especially when you have a full-time job, kids or both. No one wants to spend their evening on a laptop writing out a post for the next day.
Well, today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite ways I stay organized with my blog.
Planner – Ever since I received my Simply Yours Day Planner, I’ve been able to keep track of my post ideas, scheduled dates, things I need to do get done with my blog/home stuff and sponsor tweets.
IFTTT (If This Then That) – This is a great way to connect your blog to your social media. When a post goes live on your blog it’ll automatically send a tweet or share it on your facebook page.
Composing Lots of Drafts – I have over 20+ drafts right now waiting for me to finish. I simply go to my Calendar on WordPress to see which one I want to start working on and go from there. It’s also a great way to get inspired when you lacking on inspiration.
Editorial Calendar Plugin – If you’re on WordPress you need this plugin. You can easily move all of your drafts to a specific date on your calendar and then you can see what you have to do for the month. I also like to copy that into my planner (with pencil) so I can easily see, erase or change things up.
Buffer/Hootsuite – I love using this to schedule tweets for the post I have live on that day so I continue to get pageviews and comments.
So these are my tips on “staying organized with your blog” and I hope you find them very useful.
