It is Saturday morning and I am sitting in front of my computer, planning my blog posts, looking at my stats, and setting blog/blogger goals.
Before I invest in a bloggers planner,which looks very pretty and is on my wish list, I thought I would try to see if I will stick to planning posts and trying to promote my blog. At the moment, I am more of a wannabe beauty and lifestyle blogger than anything else. I have a zillion of blog post ideas, I have been signing up for all sorts of social media applications and widgets, but I have no idea if I will be able to pull through with a full-time job (English teacher) and a second blog (yes, I am also an educational blogger, have been for 3 years actually. Check that out here). So, after this long ramble, I am getting to the point of today’s post. Planning.
What did I plan?
I used my Teneues planner and went to the notes page at the end of the planner. I then used a few stickers from FruVesasPrintables to make the page more pretty. One page was dedicated to blog posts I want to write in October, and the other to blog data and statistics.
On one page, I wrote down all my blog post ideas (posts that are already in draft form and others that are ideas). I also wrote down the week I want them to be ready and published. The second page has details about my page views, my most popular post, where I get traffic from, followers on my blog and social media followers. I also have my goals for October. I have a section for the money I made from my blog (nothing so far :p).
Troubles: what on earth am I doing?
I really need to understand Pinterest cause at the moment that’s my most neglected site. I also am wondering whether I should mention in my About page when I publish what. Something like a preview. What about my header? Should I invest in it and get someone to make a proper one (logo)? Do I move to self-hosted website or should I wait and see how I go? I need to work on my photo- taking skills as well. What about a giveaway? How will I set it up? When do I do it? Now or later on?
Trying to juggle a lot of things. Let’s see how that works. At the moment, things are going well.
Oh! By the way, how do you plan your blog posts? Any ideas? Any suggestions? Leave a comment in the section below.
I am leaving with a song that adds sound to my troubled thoughts cause i luv me some drama as well.
Talk soon lovelies
