#socialbloggers 15 – Going Holiday and Your Blog

Hurrah! After 3 weeks away due to my holiday in Florida, #socialbloggers was back on Saturday! It was a quiet one, which is to expected after 3 weeks of no chat, but it was nice to see some new faces!

We spoke about going on holiday and what to do with your blog while away. I thought the topic fitting.

As most of you know, I was on holiday in May. I’ve been blogging daily for the past 3 months and the thought of not posting everyday while I was away was giving me a lot of anxiety! So I started planning my time and writing posts to schedule. By the time my holiday came around, I had 15 posts written and scheduled for every single day while I was away, so I didn’t have to worry about the blog.

I also scheduled a couple of posts in Twitter every day and the forums. 

I knew I would have internet at the hotel, but I didn’t want to be worried about when I’d be able write posts, although it would have been fantastic to write about my holiday in real time

This also meant that any internet time I did have, I was able to keep up with your blogs. I managed to visit blogs and keep up with comments almost every day while I was away! 

What do you do when you’re on holiday? To post or not to post, that is zee question!

Q2 What are you going to (or would) do with your blog while away? #socialbloggers

@bloggerforums I’d probably get some guest bloggers in or do a massive scheduling session

@bloggerforums pre scheduled I think, but the odd guest post is nice too #socialbloggers

#socialbloggers In general though, I think if you’re on vacay, it’s good to have a few guest posts but honestly… don’t worry about it!

@lisforladybird @bloggerforums a little mix sounds kind of nice but sometimes guest posts are hard to coordinate #socialbloggers

Q3 Do you think it’s important to keep publishing content while away? #socailbloggers

@bloggerforums A3: I don’t think I would do a post until I got back BUT would probably keep Twitter up & going
