Blogging takes time. Writing new posts, promoting your posts, replying to comments, reading other blogs, commenting on other blogs, answering emails, using social media… the list goes on.
I’ve found that it is a lot easier to keep up with all of these tasks if I try and write my posts in advance, ideally on a Sunday. At Quick Blog Tips, I currently publish 5 posts every week, and Sunday is the best day for me to write those posts. Sunday is good because I don’t usually have much else going on.
I schedule my posts to go out through the week. This means I can use weekday evenings to do my networking and promotion. While writing is something I can just sit down and do, networking is something I prefer to do in small bursts of activity.
An added bonus is that if I’m not writing complete posts every day, I think up ideas for new posts much more frequently.
How many posts do you publish every week? When do you write your posts?
