I have a new blogging schedule for the new year. It’s already started, but I wanted to share it with you and my thoughts for creating a schedule.
As last year was coming to a close, I reviewed what I liked and didn’t like about my blog and also reviewed some site statistics and came to the conclusion that 1) I should add more book discussion to my blog and 2) not require of myself to post a certain number of book reviews. With those two main goals, I created the following schedule:
Sunday: I will again be participating in Sunday Post. I used to participate in this meme and enjoyed it. I will make it part of the book discussion, share personal happenings, books I've received, and other exciting things.
Monday: I will be participating in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey, sharing and discussing my current read(s).
Tuesday: I will share a guest post or an author interview. If I don't have one, there won't be a post.
Wednesday: This will be the day I post book review(s), whether I have one or more they will all be posted on Wednesday. This way I will not feel pressured to read more than one book a week. However, if I do I can continue to share all my reviews.
Thursday: I will be discussing books, sharing book lists, and other topics of blogger note. This will be a very wide open topic and I do have some fun ideas I hope I can incorporate in here.
While I was researching this topic, there were many opinions on blogging schedules. Some said it would be too rigid and not allow the blogger to be creative, and others said it would help with consistency for posts.
I am a schedule person and feel that a blogging schedule is important to me. I have always had one and try to keep it as general as possible. I also think it’s important to review your blog and make changes and what better time than the first of the year.
What are your thoughts and ideas on a blogging schedule?
