Last Friday I wrote a post on how I tracked my blog stats which you can check out after this post. From this I also had the idea to write a blog post on how I also organise my blog content as I thought that this is something that people may also be interested in reading. With having a full time job alongside keeping my blog running I have to be somewhat organised in order to post consistently and improve on my blog. Although we’re only a week into the month as I currently write this post, I definitely feel as though I’m managing to keep my blog organised! Let’s get into the blog post.
Similar to the way I track my blog stats I also try to track the blog content that I post in a spreadsheet in Excel. In this spreadsheet I have organised the content that I have published by year and then by date. I have a separate sheet within the spreadsheet for each year. Within each sheet I have the title of the post, the link to the post and the date that it was published on my blog. This works for me as I am then able to see what blog posts I have written previously and when.
Within the same spreadsheet document I also have another sheet for content ideas, although I don’t really use this as often.
Another way that I keep track of my blog content is with my bullet journal. In my bullet journal I currently have two pages in there where I’m managing all of my content ideas. If I’ve written and published the blog post then I mark it as complete. Once I run out of these two pages I’ll probably add more to the next space available in my bullet journal.
I also manage the content that I’m going to post within my monthly calendar as you’ll be able to see below. I’ll write the blog post title in the date I plan to post it by which helps me to keep track of my ideas and when I want to ideally post them. I like doing this because it allows me to visually see what blog post is going up when so that I can write it in time and take photos for it in advance.
Recently what I’ve also started doing is going through my older blog posts which are slightly cringe in my opinion. With some of them I’m thinking about updating and creating a new blog post for them as I’m not happy with how they are. For this I have decided to create another page in my bullet journal for these and when I’ve completed them then I’ll mark them as such. Hopefully this will be a good way to make sure that the posts I have on my blog are ones that I’m happy with.
