Summer is coming! I’m going to have a very busy one so a few weeks ago, I decided to plan ahead on my content.
Here are some of the things I have going on in summer:
1st July – 8th July I’m on holiday from work. My boyfriend also breaks up for the summer holidays. It’s my birthday on the 2nd and we’ll be spending a few days with my parents a few days at his parents.
I’m moving house at the end of July so I’m spending the new few weeks de-junking, then packing, then moving, then sorting.
I’m going on holiday for two weeks at the end of August.
This means I’m probably going to have limited time to blog – my days off work won’t be sat in front of the computer, so I’ve decided to plan ahead. So far I have 6 posts scheduled for July and I plan to write a few more each week until I have around 20 scheduled.
Here are a few things I’ve done/or will do.
- Content plan – write a list of posts I want to write.
- A post per evening – I’ve got into the habit of coming home and watching TV. I’m going to try to write a post each evening around 4 or 5 days a week.
- Sort out samples – I have loads of product samples from events and PRs that I need to blog about. I’m going to take some time to photograph them all and have them ready to write about.
- Let go of mistakes – I’ve talked about it before, spelling mistakes can be off-putting in blog posts, but I can’t afford to spend loads of time proof-reading. My dyslexia means I always struggle to spot my own mistakes unless I take the time to read the post backwards. But there are bigger things in life to worry about than the wrong use of their and they’re. Please don’t be a dick to me.
Do you have a content plan for the summer?
