Blog Schedule Audit

About a month ago I posted a blog schedule that I hoped to follow weekly. Given my time constraints, it seemed a little over-ambitious. You can read more about it here

I am happy to report that I was able to follow it almost accurately. I set myself a target of posting four times a week with articles in different categories on specific days of the week. I missed only one in week three when I was very busy family wise. In week 3, my scheduled days for particular categories were also out of sync. I must own up that I cheated a little, repurposing old posts when I did not have the time to write a new one.

Unscheduled Posts: Writing Prompts & Flights of Fancy

In addition to the schedule I continued posting as and when the fancy struck me . Basically this was whenever time permitted. I was careful, however, to space these over my “unscheduled” days, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday. I also posted other content on my scheduled days, ending up with two or three posts in one day.

 

Final Analysis

  • Mine is a multiple niche blog and having a schedule means that all my categories get equal attention.
  • I blog/write mainly on the go and have no scheduled blogging time. Having a blogging schedule gives some form and structure to my blogging.
  • The schedule has helped me blog more consistently and more frequently.
