As you may or may not have noticed, there’s been a lot more posts on my blog over the past few weeks. This is because I was incredibly organised and took part in the Blog A head 2015 Challenge hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup and Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The challenge was simple. Throughout October I just needed to increase the number of scheduled posts I already had by 31 posts and all posts should be scheduled from November 1st.
And I did it! 31 posts all scheduled by the end of October. Most of the posts will go live in November and December but I’ve got a few scheduled at the start of next year as well. It’s a great feeling having my blog so organised. I’m still writing and posting reviews as I read/watch stuff but on the whole, the majority of the stuff you’ll be seeing on my blog will have been written and scheduled a month ago.
Ii enjoyed taking part in this challenge. Some days I wrote and scheduled like 5 posts and then left it a week before I wrote anything else. There wasn’t that much planning involved really and doing memes like Top Ten Tuesday certainly helped me get to that 31 post target.
I think I’ll take part in the Blog Ahead Challenge again, it made me think about what I want my blog to be and to work on my writing and scheduling.
Did you take part in the challenge? Do you usually schedule posts or just post as you go? This was the first time I scheduled really and I’m quite pleased how it worked out for me.
