Blogging is really fun and I definitely love doing it, but it definitely takes in a lot of time. Because I combine blogging with going to school, working and having a ‘normal’ life, it can get a little tricky sometimes.
If you’re interested in finding out how I manage to do blog with a little time, make sure you keep on reading!
I have very limited free time and the free time I have I usually spend with my loved ones. But even though I don’t put a new post every day, it can be really difficult sometimes to get everything done on time.
1. Have a schedule
The most important thing to do is to have a schedule. If you know you’re facing a period in which you have little to no time to blog, make sure you write ahead. When I started blogging, I thought it would be very easy, because I put a new post every Wednesday and Saturday. And at the beginning I’ve made a big mistake because I waited always the last day to write a post and take pictures. That’s the biggest mistake you can make! Now I always make sure I have at least a week, but preferably more, of post ready to go up. This way you’ll always have something online, even when you have very little time.
2. Make a list with ideas
Thinking of things to write about might be one of the most difficult and time consuming things when it comes to blogging. Make sure you have a list with blog post ideas ready so you know what you want to write about when you have time to write. I keep a little journal in which I write down on which date I want to write about something and I also keep track of if I have taken the pictures for that post yet. This saves me so much time throughout the week!
3. Make sure you have lots of pictures ready
Now, I know this can be really difficult sometimes because it takes really a lot of time also with editing pictures. Something that helps me a lot is making sure I have lots of pictures ready. I take pictures for lots of different articles and I edit them immediately. This way I have lots of pictures ready to go up and the only thing I have to do is write an article about them.
Lighting can be really a struggle sometimes, and it can be really annoying as well. What I usually do is take pictures on Saturdays and Sundays morning, between 9am and 1pm, mostly because of the lighting. You can get an amazing natural lighting in that time of the day and don’t have to worry about if your pictures will look dark or unclear. Weekends morning I have usually a lot of free time that I use for taking pictures and writing.
You can always get a studio light which creates very natural looking light and it allows you to take pictures at any time of the day, even when it’s super dark outside.
5. Know what you want to write
My last tip is make sure you know what you want to write in your post. If you’re not really sure what you want to say about something, you’ll end up spending a lot of time thinking about what you want to write or what you want to tell your readers about a certain product or topic. If you know what you want to say, all you have to do is write about it and you’re good to go.
