To Do List: Blog

Oh I know, I know-not everyone blogs-right? Why?!?!


I love to read writers blogs. I didn't used to. In fact it's only been about a year since I started reading blogs. I read them all the time now though. Blogging helps us connect with other writers, with other people like ourselves, other people who share our interests.

It's hard to find time to blog, but you should still do it. With all the scheduling options, it makes it even easier. For instance, I'm writing this post on March 4, but you are just now reading it today, March 12. I have a little time right now, so that's why I'm writing a few posts in advance. I do have other posts on my blog that I don't always schedule, or that I don't schedule very far in advance. The point is, blogging helps you gain an audience, so you should find a way to do it. I'm not telling you to, just suggesting. And the way you mark Blog of the to do, is find free time in your schedule to fit it in. Write some posts in advance and schedule them to post at different times. Also, make a blogging plan. Figure out what you want to talk about and how often you want to post. I post everyday because that's what I want to do. Some people post 3 days a week, some only once a week. Just decide what works best for you and do it.

Aren't these short posts nice :p

Happy Blogging :)

I try to stay a day or two ahead with scheduled posts. Will be staying weeks ahead for the A to Z Challenge!

Me too Alex. I'd never have a steady posting if I didn't schedule. I used to post without it, and my posts came whenever they happened. I love scheduling :)

it's nice to have a reader on your blog. Since I am a new blogger, I need to dig much more from others.
