Blog-a-lot Blogging Tips 001: WordPress Editorial Calendar

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 28 - 2011

So, I blog.  Am a blogger.  Or a blobber as my MIL once called me, I think by accident.  Aside from blogging for myself, I blog for other people too which feels quite different because I have to make sure I don’t swear and I very nearly always use a spell-checker.

I don’t really write about blogging too much simply because the majority of you aren’t bloggers (makes sense right?), but I’ve got a few tips and thoughts on blogging that I’d like to share with any bloggers who do read this.  Rather than do some big ol’ preachy post about it, I thought I’d drip-feed a few tips here and there to help clear my brain of the “blog fog” that is never far away.

WordPress Editorial Calendar

If you’re on WordPress *watches 3/4 of you hit the back button*, there’s a great plugin that really helps me quickly schedule my blog posts.  WordPress Calendar appears in the dashboard as a month-by-month calendar format and allows you to add a draft post simply by clicking on the desired day.  I’m not explaining this very well, let me throw in a picture.

This shows last month’s blog schedule and you can see just how “at a glance” it makes things.  I can schedule weeks in advance without having to count on my fingers (not that I’m ever this organised) and I can locate future posts and edit them quickly.

If you’re on WordPress and blog frequently, I really recommend the WordPress Editorial Calendar.
