Today I’m gonna talk about planning your blog content. Not how to do it, but why it’s so important to do.
I’m sure you’ve heard of bloggers burn out. Basically it’s when a blogger is burned out, can’t come up with new content, and can’t write two good words down on paper.
I’ve been hit by it, and it sucks. My old blog suffered a lot because of it. I felt annoyed and sad and frustrated but no matter how much I stared at my screen I didn’t manage to write anything good.
But… Planning your blog content can help you with blog burnout.
Now, it’s not gonna prevent blog burnout completely, but having content planned and written, already scheduled on your blog for automatic posting, can give you time to breath when needed, and let you be super productive when you are inspired.
Personally I like to have at least 6 months planned, and at least a months blog posts written and scheduled. I work full time, and have two kids, so having the chance to work when the time is right, instead of being forced to write when already stressed out is a life saver.
Here’s a few good things about scheduling:
If you get sick you get to relax
You can work hard when you have the time
It helps you keep an overview of your content
It helps you reach your goals
It lets you schedule for holidays/special days
It frees up time for promoting your content
Let you schedule your time better
