Hey you! So glad you’ve come to join me here today.
First of all…
Consistency is Key”
I’m sure you’ve heard that a thousand times and that’s probably because it’s true! If you want to achieve the best results at anything, you gotta be consistent.
In this post, I’ll be sharing how to achieve consistency as a blogger specifically. But most of these points could probably be applied in other areas…
How To Achieve Consistency As A Blogger
Pick a day/days to publish new posts and stick to them
Having a regular posting schedule allows you to be able to plan your content in advance and your readers know exactly when to expect new posts from you.
My new posts go out every Sunday at 6 PM CAT.
Use scheduling tools
Most of my blog posts are pre-written and scheduled in advance; which helps to take the pressure off. This is helpful especially now during Blogtober when I’m publishing new posts every day.
I can’t always write daily so pre-writing is a life-saver!
Make use of scheduling tools for your social media posts as well to make your blogging tasks more manageable.
Write your ideas down
I am constantly coming up with new ideas and sometimes inspiration hits unexpectedly, so it helps to always have a notebook handy (or your phone) to jot down your ideas before you forget them.
When you want to write new materials for your blog, you can then refer to your notes and go from there.
It’s no secret — the more you do something, the better you become at it.
Writing often will not only make you a better writer but will also ensure you have an unending supply of blog posts just waiting to be shared.
Plan Your Content
Planning goes a long way in maintaining consistency.
Make use of content planners (look around, bloggers offer free ones) and plan your blog content for the week, month etc.
Brainstorm topics and ideas for your posts and decide when you’ll publish each post.
Blog readers LOVE consistency so if you can give them that, you’re well on your way to becoming one of their faves.
Thanks for joining me on the blog today for a few lessons in consistency for bloggers.
