When it comes to blogging, I've found that getting into a routine helps me to be more focused and productive. I like being organised and a routine really helps with time management.
I've mentioned before that I keep a notebook, well two actually. One I keep for noting down ideas and the other for blog posts to write - the post title and products featured. Using this, I then know what photographs I need to take. For blog ideas, I generally write these on the go but once a week, I'll sit down (usually in the evening) and plan a weeks worth of blog posts on my blogging calender (I use the desk calender from rifle paper co featured in this post). I'm currently working a week/two weeks ahead of myself so I already have next weeks posts planned and the beginning of the week after.
On Saturdays, I take all my blog photos for the following week. I use a 16gb memory card so I can take lots of photos in bulk. I usually take several photos for each blog post and once I've taken them, I'll go and upload them to my laptop and edit. I use either picmonkey or ipiccy to edit my photos. Both of these programmes are free and easy to use. I don't edit my photographs that much. As its light at the moment, I need to do very little apart from cropping and maybe changing the curves slightly. Once I've edited, I'll upload the photos to blogger and create a draft post for each blog post I need to write up.
I'm not the kind of person that can sit down and write a weeks worth of blog posts in one go. I find it much easier and more enjoyable to write on the go. I really love sitting down in the late afternoon/evening and writing a blog post up. Sometimes I will write two posts in one go and schedule them but I prefer writing a post and publishing it as I go as sometimes blogger plays up.
This is just a little insight into how I blog. I'm not saying its the correct way, you obviously have to work to your schedule and everyone works differently. I'd love to know if you have a blogging routine or if you have a way of working that makes you most productive!
