Steps for Planning Your Quarterly Content with The Blog Well Planner
Start by adding appointments and due dates to your planner
The Blog Well Planner is a daily planner giving you a page for each day and an hourly schedule from 12:00 am to 11:00 pm to cover all hours of the day. You can include your personal appointments and your blog schedule on this planner.
It’s important to add your personal schedule so you know how much time you have to blog each day.
Since this planner also includes hourly scheduling it’s perfect for time blocking. Using time blocks, you can schedule set time into your day to work on your blog and treat it like a business. Remember, you have to work on your blog like a business to make money like a business. But I didn’t say you have to work on it all the time. Be sure to include family time and rest time too.
On each planning page, I love how this planner includes space for blog post name/idea and affiliate promotions. If you already know dates for some posts or promotions, add them to your planner.
Brainstorm post ideas
You want to start filling in your planner with posts ideas. Start by brainstorming ideas for each category you write about on your blog. Spend 15-30 minutes writing down as many ideas as you can come with.
Next, review your ideas and pick the best ones to include in your blog schedule. At this point, you should have enough ideas for about 3-months of content.
Determine a posting schedule and start planning
Finally, decide how frequently you will post. Are you able to post daily or just 2 or 3 times a week? I always believe I will be able to post more than I can. I need to work on setting realistic expectations.
Based on the number of categories you have, it’s usually a good idea to rotate content through the categories. For example, I might post in parenting on Monday, time management on Tuesday, goal setting on Friday, and so forth. Once I have posted in all categories, I start over. This is my plan, it doesn’t always happen this way, but I do try to vary my content and topics.
With your list of blog post ideas from the brainstorming session and the days you plan to post, start filling in the blog posts ideas on the dates when you plan to write them. You should be able to complete the entire 3-months of content ideas. If you need more ideas to complete the 3-month plan, do another brainstorming session.
Set Your Quarterly Goals
After you have your blog content set, take time to review your goals. The Blog Well Planner provides you a place to write your business and personal goals for each month.
You can set business goals, personal goals, project goals and financial goals. By setting monthly goals, you will have a focus for the month and be able to set an action plan.
You will find The Blog Well Planner is designed with simplicity in mind. It focuses on what you need to do daily for a successful and profitable blog and takes away the distractions. It also encourages you to focus on setting monthly goals which are also key to success.
The Blog Well Planner is designed with bloggers in mind. It will help you plan a successful blog with daily planning pages, goal setting pages, monthly overviews and more. You will focus on just 3-months at a time so you won’t be overwhelmed and the planner is not dated, so you can start it anytime.
