Planning a Blog Schedule That Really Works

Discover how a blog schedule can benefit both you and your readers…

If you’re like me, you’ve tried blogging schedules and they haven’t worked. I always found this frustrating because I firmly believe that “failing to plan is planning to fail.” So I’m giving it another shot, and think that maybe this time I’ve got a winner!

WordPress recently sent me a recognition award for my first 10 years with them. Wow! It made me happy because I’ve learned a lot, in spite of mistakes. 🙂 And sad, because while I’ve stuck with blogging, in many ways it lacked stability. 😦 But I’m working on it. Never, ever give up, right?

So without further ado, here’s my new blog schedule so you can know what to expect day by day. Check it out so you know which days to tune in!! Like if you follow mostly for stuff on Italy, or if you’re just into the recipes!

But now let’s see what a blog schedule can do for you, your blog, and your readers!

How a schedule can help you and readers:

What it can do for your readers:

  • Knowing what to expect and when.
  • A more reliable, consistent, and predictable blog.
  • Better content as you become more steadfast and diligent in creating it.
  • Greater engagement, because increased organization could create more time for you to visit and engage with their blogs.

How it can help you:

  • Stay focused on your goals.
  • Get organized.
  • Alleviate writer’s block.
  • Keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
  • Be more consistent.
  • And write more creatively – because consistency boosts creativity.

Tips for a doable schedule:

  • Start small – you can always expand later on.
  • Keep it simple so you’ll be able to stick to it longterm.
  • Don’t attempt to post so frequently that you suffer burnout.
  • Likewise, don’t post too infrequently, otherwise your blog seems dead.
  • Don’t overwhelm your readers; like with multiple posts daily.
  • Set aside time for extra blogging-related tasks. (Many bloggers must also tend to backups, plugins, analytics, etc.)

I hope that maybe this time I found myself the perfect plan. But how about you? Do you follow a schedule or just wing it? What suggestions can you offer?
