I ask myself this question all the time as I have decided that in 2014 I will blog every day without fail. I luckily have not run out of blog post ideas yet and we are into the 1st week of February in full swing.
January was mostly full of posts on what I received for Christmas and reviews of those products, with a bit of lifestyle - where to eat in London, well when I look at my post, where to eat in Soho.
How did I manage to blog everyday in January I hear you ask. Well the answer to this question is simple, scheduling. I wrote my posts on a cold, damp Sunday afternoon whilst snuggled up under my duvet watching Sunday television. I did not write all of January's posts on one Sunday afternoon I wrote them over several of them.
I found it really easy to use the blogger app on my phone to work to dream up post titles and on the Sunday I began writing these posts I had made. I also prepared all my products in one large pile so I could photograph them ready for each post. Once I had photographed and wrote everything I wanted to I scheduled that post.
Now some of you may frown upon what I am doing as it is not technically blogging everyday, it is simply blogging in one large pile and then scheduling my posts to be drip fed to my readers. I find scheduling really helps me organise my blog and also my time, because if I were to blog everyday and take pictures everyday I would in no way be getting to work on time. I think bloggers should use scheduling to their advantage because why else would Google put it there.
February, I hope will be a mixture of OOTD posts - although I am really nervous about taking selfie OOTD pictures after what happened last time I tried to do this. I also hope to write about more products I have been buying and trying. I also really want to ramp up the London posts as I really love taking pictures and sharing with you my adventures.
I could cheat and go through my hard drive and find all of the pictures I have taken from summer 2013, but I feel like that is not a direct representation of what is happening in London right now, so I will refrain from doing that.
Do you schedule your posts or do you write them on the day you want to publish them?
