How I Organized my Blog Post Writing and Publishing Routine


WHAT I DO BEFORE PUBLISHING

First I would edit my pics and name them accordingly. Remember that you always want to name them, search engines will never find your images if they are named DSC_56435. So make your pics keyword rich. Once they are ready I upload them to my wordpress.

I copy and paste my written content into my blog editor and start styling it as I like. Add my pics to the right places, set the proper tags, categories and also my featured image. Then I set my keywords in the right places along the post and in my SEO plugin.

I read over the post again and see if I find mistakes. Sometimes I even give my text to a dear friend to read it and correct anything that might be off. Once I feel confident that everything is fine {And I still mess it up often} I will schedule it or publish it depending on the situation.

I like to publish in the morning, I usually schedule it to post at 6 or 7 am. Abby from Just a Girl and Her blog suggests in her eBook that also setting up your RSS feed close to that time is a good practice so your readers get your posts first thing in the morning too. So I started doing that as well.

I also like to schedule my social media posts since I have it all fresh in my mind. I don’t ALWAYS do this because it depends on how busy my day is, but I try my best to set this up right away. I schedule my FB posts with FB scheduler and use Friends+Me to schedule G+ posts. I used to use HootSuit but I can’t schedule on my G+ profile, only page, and with Friends+Me I can schedule on both and I can add more social media channels to post as well.

WHAT I DO AFTER PUBLISHING

When I sit down at my computer, the first thing I check is if my post went live as scheduled. I have had this problem a few times and I have to go to edit my post and hit update so it would go live.

Once it’s live, I share it in my FB cooperation groups. This helps get your content exposed and you also get inspired by other bloggers work. Since my time is limited, I usually leave my link, and return at night or the next day to reciprocate. It’s important to know how much you can do and stick with it and let your group know, so it’s always fair.

I also share on my Instagram and Triberr that works with twitter. I love Triberr. It’s a great platform to expand your twitter reach. It works in tribes, you can create yours and join others. The main point is to share each others content on Twitter and get to be seen by many people.

Each blogger has a different strategy and routine which is great because we can learn so much from it. But, what is important is to find what works best for you. For example , when I joined Abby’s community of Building a Framework, I found out so many new strategies that fit my needs and blogging style. I also noticed we had lots of them in common which made me feel that I wasn’t so out of place. Like my publishing routine, it was so reassuring to see that Abby’s routine was similar to mine but with new great ideas. I felt like I wasn’t alone and not so wrong.

After getting her eBook and going through the pages and videos, I learned so much about organization and blogging strategies. Some of them I could put into practice right away and have worked wonderfully so far. Some are not my style. Some others are taking more time for me to catch up on like my mailing list marketing and finding my unique voice. But, it’s great to read through other blogger’s experiences and see what works and what doesn’t’ for them and for me.

Becoming part of Building a Framework community has been a game changer for me and my blogging journey. The ebook was so amazingly easy to follow. I have read it like 3 times now and I still get back to it re-read some chapters to stay in track. I now know that we can grow as much as we want to and that it’s ok to stop for a moment, re-think our strategies and change things in order to find our blogging balance.

Apart from what the eBook and the interviews bring, I also had the awesome opportunity to become part of her FB Group in which I have found so much support, love and help when I’ve needed it. Whenever I ask a question some members come and share what they know. We help each other understand the blogging world and grow as bloggers, and amazingly as people too.

I love it! And if you are not part of the Building a Framework Community I would encourage you to join us. As for myself I can say it’s been the best investment I’ve made.

    Camila, thanks for being so transparent about your writing and publishing process. It really helps to hear what works for others…and I’m DE-lighted to hear that you’ve been able to use my freewriting tip! That has gotten me unstuck from writer’s block many-a-time. And I love how you use Microsoft Word as insurance. I have definitely lost drafts before because of an issue when saving; what a smart and easy solution! Also, I couldn’t agree more about Building a Framework. Abby has created such a bevy of resources for bloggers in that book…and now you’ve inspired me to go back and re-read certain sections. (Oh, and P.S. I think you’re doing a GREAT job infusing your writing with more of your voice. So proud of you!)

      Awww Thank you so much Lauren, Your words mean the world to me. Both posts free wiring and Story-telling were so eye opening and inspiring {as most of your posts}. I’ve been applying those tips to my routine and writing. I really need to find my voice and I’m not so sure how close I am yet but I’m working on it. Knowing that you think I’m getting there gives lots of motivation, Thank you!!! And Yes Abby’s book is AMAZING… I truly go back and re-read some of her sections so I remind myself of what and how to do certain things. Happy to have you visiting and taking the time to read a bit of my story!
