Whenever life gets busy, the first thing to go is my ability to get content posted on the blog on time. If I don’t schedule blog posts in advance, blog posts go up way late. Like 5PM late. If the posts go up at all.
Whether your life involves travel, work, or just life, things arise. And those things make deadlines hard to meet if you don’t plan ahead. Which is why I so highly recommend that you schedule blog posts in advance in this week’s Blogging Basics post.
What I’m Wearing:
Dress: Trina Turk via Rent the Runway / Bag: Senreve / Earrings: Sugarfix by BaubleBar, c/o
Scarf: similar, similar / Shoes: Caslon / Sunglasses: Loft, sold out
Before we dive in to explaining why exactly you should always schedule blog posts in advance, y’all need the details on this dress. I’ve decided. Because it’s friggin cute. And even cuter in person. It’s basically all of the tangerine dreams come true.
I wore this look while [window] shopping in Palm Beach earlier this month. This dress was from Rent the Runway, but I also found it via Trina Turk, via Zappos, and via Amazon! I’m wearing the Medium above – if you think you’re in between two sizes, definitely size up as this dress is supposed to have a roomier fit.
To emphasize the mod Mad Men-vibes in this look, I added these earrings (under $15!). They’re so fun in person and totally remind me of a spinning solar system (you’ll see it if you get them, I promise)!
And now for why you should schedule blog posts in advance (if the forward didn’t convince you!).
Why You Should Schedule Blog Posts in Advance
My blogging schedule is Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Wednesdays are always devoted to my Blogging Basics series, but the other days are a bit of a free-for-all.
Even with this decreased schedule (last year I posted 4 days a week, the year before I posted an average of 5 times each week!), it’s a bit dicey. Some weeks, I have a ton of work or am traveling, so I’m unable to post regularly if at all. You know what would fix that?
If I scheduled blog posts in advance. See? It’s all coming full circle.
As y’all learned in this post, I’m a huge advocate of having an editorial calendar. Using such a calendar will help you stay organized and stay on track. And, since I pre-plan my content over a month in advance, you can sit down and knock out several posts in one sitting… as I did this week.
Yes, greetings from Monday morning. I do realize that I just got today’s post up a few hours ago (and it was super late), but, on the bright side, look at how early this one’s ready to go! It’s amaaaaazing.
In fact, I did all of this week’s blog posts. Today. And I now have this entire week for activities. I know – I am so excited!!!
In the event that y’all are still underwhelmed, the reason why you should schedule blog posts in advance is simple: if you create and schedule blog content in advance, you won’t feel as rushed to get the content posted. Q.E.D.
