#socialbloggers 23 – Keeping Content Flowing

how to keep the content flowing

WOOO 23rd #socialbloggers chat HELLO! 23 is almost 26. And 26 is six months. SIX MONTHS WHHHAAAATTTT.

Anyway, let’s get to it, shall we? On Saturday we focused the chat around how to keep the content flowing. From how you come up with fresh ideas and how you organise them, to what you do when you feel demotivated to blog.

I’m quite lucky in that I have many idea for my blog. The struggle for me comes with having the time to write the posts and being able to take the photos I need. I can’t always get into the living room to take photos if a housemate is home so I sometimes have to quickly change my schedule. Also, I don’t always have the time to write the posts as some of the ideas I have do require me to do some research.

What I tend to do is use the Calendar app on my Mac, as it syncs up with my Macbook, iPads and iPhone. I’ll usually put in any posts that I need to posts and then fill in the spaces around that. I can have anywhere from a weeks to 4 weeks posts planned in advance. I will move them around if I need, but at least I know what I’ve got planned. I then plan when I’m going to take the photos and write the post around my work schedule and do try to get the photos uploaded as a draft and half write posts in advance.

I also use the ‘Notes’ app on my Mac which also automatically syncs up to my Macbook. On this, I have a lists of post ideas, also lists of the #socialbloggers questions and various other notes. I’ll delete something out of the list when I’ve wrote it and will look at it if I’m feeling stumped.

If I feel demoted, then I read this post about what to do when you’re in a blog slump πŸ˜‰
