I wrote a post on 'How to stay organised with work, uni and keeping a blog' which went down quite well. This time I'm focusing more on blogging as I know a little more about it than I did last year. Hopefully you'll find these tips useful and you won't lose your blogging mojo!
My FiloFax has been my lifeline for the past 4 years. I write down literally everything from everyday information, events, schedules, which blog post is going up when, deadlines for university, meetings, times, birthdays etc. I literally would be lost without it. I've recently upgraded in size to the 'personal' size which is slightly bigger than my old 'pocket' size (see here) I felt like I needed an upgrade as my old one had lasted me for 4 years (and it's still going strong!) and these days I have so much more to write and I felt that I needed more room.
I actually bought this one from Tesco for £14 which is a bargain if you ask me because other places sell them for £20+
If you don't have an organiser or a FiloFax then I'd suggest getting one as it's so much easier to manage your life this was, as well as your blog.
The smaller one is mainly for lists; posts to write up, ideas, things for film for youtube, blog series - what to publish on what days.
I think that blog series are good as it means you won't lose (or are less likely to) your blogging mojo. For example I will post Instagram pictures on the last Saturday of the month, monthly favourites on the last Friday and the advertisers post on the last Wednesday of the month. I also try to post reviews on Monday or Wednesday and OOTD's on a Friday.
At the moment I don't have enough time to post daily as I have university commitments, my shop to maintain and a little one that constantly wants attention.
Maybe next year when I've graduated uni I'll post daily, but for now I can't manage it. At the moment I post on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Underneath my keyboard I keep a pad of the week. Here I will write down dates and what post is to go live. I'll then tick off the ones that I've written and scheduled. This makes my life a little easier as it means I can see which posts need to be written, and whether there are any gaps in the week that need to be filled.
I hope these tips help you! Remember, if you're life is a little busy just schedule your posts and tweets.
