November was National Blog Post Month. The goal was to post something to your blog, every day. I am not usually a frequent blogger. I write when I get the urge or when I find something that I feel I need to share.
Last year, I did not participate in this month of posting. I figured this year would be a good time to try it out. I admit that I failed, I did not post daily. But, for someone who does not blog on a normal schedule, I feel I did a great job.
I wrote a total of 26 posts, which means I only missed 4 posts for a month of 30 days. Looking at the calendar, I missed a total of 10 days. These usually fell on the weekends. I tried to make up for most of these posts by having multiple posts during the week. There were some days that I had up to 3 new blog posts.
One thing that I have learned in this experience is to make a list of the upcoming posts for the month. Somewhat like an editorial calendar. I put all the special memes in and then I listed out what I was going to post. If it was a picture, I put the image # next to it so that I could search a lot quicker when it came time to pull everything together. Once the post is complete, I put a √ next to it and then I know it is scheduled to post.
Everyone has different tools that work for them. What works for you?
