How many years has it been now, five? I’m not sure. But for a long time, I’ve uploaded a blog post to this website every single day for a long time. It’s kind of like I’m in a competition with myself now to see how long I can keep it up. I don’t want to drop the ball and miss a day. Over the last few years, I’ve managed to streamline my workload so I am able to blog daily without spending hours at the computer. Here’s how:
Do more chatty post.
When I first started blogging, I did lots of review type posts that required styling photos, or myself in outfits, then editing them.
Doing chattier posts (like this) are much easier to do when you are lacking time!
Batch stock photos.
I have lots of photos that I can use for chatty posts, such as my laptop and other props. Simply overlaying text over them means you can use the same photos again.
Use stock photos.
I was against using stock photos for the first started blogging. I wanted everything to be my own. But if you want to be efficient, you have to learn to work a little smarter. There are loads of free stock photos you can use these days without having to even credit them!
Use work breaks.
I’m sat in the canteen at work typing this, opposite my work colleagues. Get smarter with you type and use free time at work if you are lucky enough to have lunch hours!
Always have ideas ready.
I must have about 15 blog post ‘titles’ in my blog calendar. Blog ideas ready to go so I don’t have to think ‘shit, what do I need to post about’. If you are stuck for inspiration, look on websites like Bloglovin’ and Pinterest!
