Whether you want to publish a blog post every day for a week or get ahead on your usual blogging schedule, it can be hard to find the time to write. I struggled with that for a long time, trying different systems for writing blog posts. I finally settled on a blogging method and it has so far proven to work well for me and my writing schedule. So here is how to write 7 blog posts in 7 days, without sacrificing quality of content.
Day 1: Write out some ideas for posts. Start sketching out ideas on paper or making drafts on your computer. Come up with the topics, key points, call to action, etc. Basically, spend day one brainstorming your seven posts.
Day 2: Research! Do you need to fact check anything, quote from an article or book, or just make sure your ideas are not a direct copy of someone else? This is the day to work on that part.
Day 3: Write the rough drafts of your posts. Try to get as much written as possible, knowing that you will be coming back to edit later. This will not be perfect, but it’s a starting point for getting your posts done.
Day 4: Edit, edit and edit some more. Spelling, grammar and just general content will be looked at today. You will have more opportunities to review your piece, but today is all about getting things as close to done as you can.
Day 5: Picture day! Now it’s time to make your post pretty. Whether you only use one image or multiples, batch them all together (if possible) and take photos, edit photos and get them ready to go.
Day 6: Put it all together. Place pictures, add links, etc. Then edit it again as you go through each post.
Day 7: Final review day. Review your posts one last time (in preview mode), just to make sure everything reads well and any links work correctly. Then schedule them out or hit publish!
And that is my simple, straight forward method for writing 7 blog posts in 7 days. This method is also easily adjusted depending on your workload and can be a good jumping off point for getting blog posts written ahead of time no matter your blog topic. I hope this helped you and if you have any tips to add I would love to hear them!
