Creating a Schedule to Increase my Content Creation
Recently I've been reading other members' blog posts about wanting to create content more often. We all know that content creation is one of the best ways to get traffic and better rankings. However, life gets in the way sometimes and procrastination seems a lot easier.
I've been wanting to blog more frequently and I realized that I function better when I have a "to do list". There's just something about checking off those boxes when a task is complete.. makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something.
So in order to blog more often, I decided I needed to create a schedule. I have 2 main websites... a camping/survival website and a website promoting WA. So I want to blog in both everyday... or at least every Monday thru Friday.
Here's what my Schedule looks like for my Camping Website:
Mon - Camping Recipe
Tues - Affiliate Promotions or Current Deals/Sales
Wed - Specific Campgrounds or Travel Post
Thurs - Gear Review (ie: backpacks, tents, equipment)
Fri - Camping or Survival Tip
I have another schedule for my WA website. Having a specific topic or type of blog post scheduled for each day helps me focus and actually get it done. I was getting bogged down with the "what do I write about today?" syndrome, so this schedule allows me to be consistent and have variety within my website.
I just implemented the schedule and so far so good. I left Saturday and Sunday free for several reasons. I know that at some point something will keep me from sticking to the schedule ever single day. Saturday and Sunday can be used to either catch up or to take a break.
