How I Blog

I blog because I love it. I love writing and talking and sharing random bits of my life that I'm sure no one really cares about, but that's not what matters. I don't blog for attention, or write what people want me to write, I write what I want to write.

Coming up with ideas of what to write about is easy for me. Finding a way to organize those ideas and actually turn them into blog posts is a whole different ball game. First, I start by making a list of all my different ideas in my notebook. Each page is a different category; daily, style, food, running/fitness, travel. After that, I write down the dates Monday-Friday for the whole page (usually about two months). I start by writing down posts for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, then fill out the rest with whatever else I forgot or leave some blanks for the impromptu posts.

What I love about Blogger is that I can schedule posts. So if I'm feeling particularly efficient one day, I can write 3-4 blog posts at once and schedule them, then like magic, they are published without me having to do a single thing! I also discovered how to do that on Facebook and Twitter, that way if I'm at work when I want a post to be published, it will do it automatically for me.

Right now I have about 16 blog posts drafted from my makeshift calendar, most of which I only need to add pictures. It definitely helps having this little schedule, that way I don't have to think too hard about what to write if I'm in a rut, and don't stress if I'm working 15 hours that day and don't have access to my computer to write or publish a post. Of course, nothing is set in stone, but it does give me a good guideline.

There you go! Not a very long post, but if you ever have questions about how I blog, feel free to ask!


  1. Nicely organized, and will keep you motivated to maintain your blog. Notebooks fill up fast for me, but I'll definitely have to test this out. I blog spontaneously most times. The scheduled posts on blogger and Facebook I don't know what I'd do without!

    1. It does keep me motivated! I still love writing by hand so much better than typing up lists. Thank god for the scheduled posts!
