THE BLOGGING SCHEDULE THATS WORKING FOR ME

Photo from my Instagram

Blogging is something that has changed a lot over the last few years. They don’t seem to be as popular as they once were, but in my opinion there’s definitely still a place for them. You just can’t get the depth on an Instagram caption then you can on your own blog post. Sitting down and typing out my thoughts is still so therapeutic to me. But with all the platforms out there these days, your attention obviously goes elsewhere and you don’t feel like there’s as much time as before as they used to be. That’s why I’ve started blogging a little differently recently, so I thought I’d tell you about it.

minimum once a week posts
Gone are the days when I could easily post 3 times a week. Honestly I just don’t have that much content that I would *really* want to say, and I don’t want to post things that I’m not 100% happy with. Plus I definitely don’t have the time for that right now, and I wouldn’t want to make any changes to priortise it and let something else I enjoy doing too, fall. Once a week minimum works really well for me, and sometimes it’s two posts. I’m not putting any pressure on myself that way, and it means blogging is still something I really enjoy and actually, crave! After a few days, I’m itching to get typing again.

more long-form posts
I still love a short, snappy post, but I’m very much into long posts right now. They feel like I’m giving more value and effort for you guys who read my blog, and that makes me feel very happy. Plus if I’m only posting once a week, I can spend longer to put something together, and really get into the point of what I’m trying to make.

mixed bag of content
I really don’t want to put any restrictions on what kind of posts I want to do. Whether it’s more of a helpful post, lifestyle stuff or book/positivity content, it feels right and good to me, I want to share it. There’s loads of more topics I would love to discuss on here, but I just haven’t found quite the right way to go about it yet.

Basically, I want to put more effort into my posts. I suppose that’s the long and short of it really. Quality over quantity is my new motto where the blog is concerned. So hopefully, I’ll see you in the next post.

Do you have any blogging schedules?

Share:
  • Yes to all of this!! Even though blogs are a little quieter these days, I find traffic is very much still high/increasing on my own, and there’s just so much more freedom with what you can create and share. x

    • I love your blog Michelle! It’s one of my faves x

  • My blog is quieter in terms of views than it was a few years ago, but posts are something I really enjoy creating and it’s good to have a good long write about something! 🙂 x

    • It’s really therapeutic isn’t it? That’s why I love it so much x

  • YES! YES, YES, YES!

    I love ALL blogs because you get more of the person behind the screen and get to know more in-depth on specific topics. I’m getting back into blogging because I just love it. You can express more through a blog than an Instagram caption. I don’t know a blogging schedule (yet) but non-negotiable is going to be once a week…hopefully!

    xo, Victoria

    • I totally agree! I think once a week is a great routine for a new blog post 🙂
