This post is a request by my good friend Jennifer over in America. Hi Jennifer.
She asked for to blog if you only have one hour a day.
I have some brilliant news. I’ve recently photographed, wrote and scheduled over a months worth of posts so I can have a proper good holiday without worrying about blogging. It’s quite simple to do 7-10 posts in as little as an hour day.
Today you’re going to spend your hour taking photos and uploading them into your blog posts. It’s very simple, take your products you are reviewing and photograph them one by one.
I usually photograph each product around 6 times and just pick my favourites.
If you plan on writing some general posts, take photos of other props such as your phone, camera, plants etc.
This usually takes me around 15 minutes to take photos for around 10 products.
I’m going to spend the next 45 minutes uploading them, deleting the ones I don’t like and editing them.
I spend this hour titling each post as a draft, putting the photos in the post and then creating the title image.
After this is done, I’ll have around 1o posts laid out and ready to write.
Wednesday – Friday:
I spend an hour each day purely writing the blog post. No distraction. A review takes me around 20 minutes. A blog tip post around 30 minutes. It’s very rare for a blog post to take me longer than that to write. I’m a fast typer and even quicker thinking and once I put my fingers to the keys, I’m unstoppable. Unless I’m hungover. Then there’s no hope.
I will write 2-3 posts per day like this. This means I can write 6-9 blog posts and still have the weekend off.
What’s your process?
