I use my laptop to create posts, I do this when the mood takes me. I would love to be able to create posts on my tablet but I just can’t get my head around that. I’m the most un-technical blogger ever. I really am just winging it. In my head I would like to do scheduled posts about a week in advance, or even have a few posts ‘in the bank’ ready to post when I feel the time is right. The reality is I have only ever had 2 or 3 posts scheduled ahead of time if I’m going to be away, but more often than not I don’t and regret it.
I do have a notepad (well I have about 478 but that’s another post) for jotting down ideas and thoughts, which I do refer to, but mostly I write my posts on a whim at the moment I think of them. I wonder if it’s really true that some bloggers have a whole calendar dedicated to their blogs, when I see the posts about organising their calendars, all pretty and lovely looking, with pretty sticky notes and reminders, I wonder if they really stick to that. Or if it’s all a fairy tale.
During the summer my laptop mostly lives in the upstairs office and I blog at my desk, but now that winter is kicking in, I’ve brought it down for the warm cosy days by the fire.
The only regular posts on my blog are my Sunday Thoughts, which I enjoy because I like to find interesting and fun quotes, and I’m not going to lie, I like the fact that they require minimum work and they are pretty popular with my readers. I’ve started to post a This Week post as a kind of what I’ve been up to but I don’t want to have that on a regular day as I don’t like to be committed.
Do you have a schedule/routine/pretty colourful blogging calendar?
