Write Blog Posts Faster

Creating a blog can be quite exciting but the excitement wears off after a week or so when you realize that maintaining a blog requires a significant amount of effort. There are hundreds of thousands of blogs out there and there is a good chance that someone else is blogging about the exact same topic that you are blogging about. Why should people keep coming back to your blog when they can visit other more popular blogs in the same niche? That is the question that you should be asking yourself when you are planning on writing a new blog post.

In this article you will learn how to make your blog stand out from the crowd by creating a custom blogging schedule that matches your unique personality. But, before we dive into the details of creating a blogging schedule, you must understand why it is important to create a blogging schedule in the first place.

Shouldn’t you just write posts when you feel inspired to do so? Find out below.

Why You Should Create a Posting Schedule for Your Blog

Most people who start blogging simply write articles whenever they are in the mood to do so and though it is possible to create a killer blog with this posting strategy, it is not the most effective strategy out there.

Why? Because once you have written a handful of posts for your blog, it becomes much more difficult to get in the “mood” to write new articles. It is difficult to think of new topics to write about and while you are waiting for the perfect mood to arrive; you begin to lose traffic and search engine rankings.

Creating a posting schedule will not only help you overcome writers block but it will help you create the habit of writing something new every single day. Search engines tend to rank active websites higher than other websites.

I know what you are probably thinking, “Is it really a good idea to publish new articles everyday? Won’t Google think I am spamming?” Find out HERE.

Use Each Day of The Week to Create Your New Blogging Schedule

I understand most people don’t like to work on the weekends, let’s just cut Saturday and Sunday out of the blogging schedule for now. It would be much more beneficial to include them in the schedule but I understand it is good to take a break every now and then. One of the easiest blogging schedules to create is one that is based on each day of the week. I can’t tell you exactly what kind of blogging schedule to create – that entirely depends on you – but I can provide you with some example.

Simple Blogging Schedule: Tweak as You Please

Here is a quick blogging schedule I that I just thought of off the top of my head.

  • Moody Monday: write about an issue that bothers you in your niche.
  • Tweeting Tuesday: share links to various Twitter accounts in your niche along with a bio for each person.
  • Wacky Wednesday: write about something that is considered strange in your niche.
  • Thoughtful Thursday: write about the solution to a problem in your niche, give back to your readers.
  • Fruitful Friday: write a post dedicated to helping people be more productive in your niche.

The above simple blogging schedule should give you a good idea of how to create a blogging schedule for the week.

Some Helpful Blogging Schedule Tips to Make The Most of Your Blog:

  • I recommend including one day in your schedule where you link to other bloggers websites and share their articles. Why would you want to promote other people’s websites? Because Karma is quite real when it comes to working online.
  • Go out of the way to do something nice for someone else and there is a good chance that they will return the favor. Plus, when the bloggers you link to find out about the post (which is incredibly easy nowadays) they will share it on their social media profiles, thus sending more traffic your way.
  • Blogging schedules help you know what to write about everyday. No need to sit around waiting for writers block to disappear.
  • It is fun to test your creativity by creating a fun blogging schedule… and it is not just fun for you, it is fun for your readers as well.

That about sums it up. Start working on that new blogging schedule today!
