Repost- Blogging Insights- Organizing your blog

Due to A to Z challenge, Tanya has suspended her blogging insight series. Today I’m sharing a post from 2020!

Tanya is the host of Blogging Insights


How organized are you when it comes to blogging? Do you have a blog schedule or do you play it by the ear?

Though I am not a stickler for schedules, I am pretty well organized regarding the postings on my blog. I post three posts daily and they are pre-scheduled to be posted every day. I usually write them the day before and schedule them. Sometimes if I have free time, I schedule posts for a couple of days in advance.

As far as my two prompts are concerned, those too are pre-planned and are scheduled at least a couple of days ahead.

How often do you’ tidy up’ your blog? e.g. go through your Drafts Folder, or go through old posts checking for broken links, etc.?

I do keep on going through my drafts and whenever I get time and inspiration, I complete them and post them as and when appropriate. I have never checked my old posts for broken links etc! I didn’t know that I was supposed to do that.

And this question also reminds me that I should tidy up my site. I haven’t touched it since at least a year. The reason is quite simple. I blog solely from my phone and for organizing, I’d need to go to my site via my laptop. Call me lazy or phobic, but I avoid doing that on all sorts of excuses. But I must do it sooner rather than later.

Maybe have a new header image or rearrange the menu or just refresh in general.

Thank you Tanya, for hosting this series and keeping the conversation going.

  1. At the onset I used to create many draft posts and leave them. They mounted to over one hundred. However now I do my best to keeps my drafts to just a few working pieces. Then I go through my draft folder and publish what strikes my fancy.

  2. Good post Sadje, some food for thought here! 👍🤔 I have a Blog Goals For The Week Ahead post which sets out my blog schedule and creative goals for the coming week. It keeps me focused and to a routine. There’s sometimes where I miss a blog day or post but 8 times out of 10 I stick to the schedule. May start tidying up my old post. 😛😮😁😂

        1. You’re welcome! It’s the month of Ramadan for us Muslims and there are obligations that I must perform during my days and nights so that doesn’t leaves me much time for my blog.

          1. Ah yes, Ramadan. It’s very important for ye guys. Understandable that you won’t be able to give the same commitment to your blog. The people who know you will understand. 😁👍

  3. I like to write posts a day in advance and then schedule them for the next day. Recently, I realized that a post didn’t appear. I had a message “schedule missed” in red. Has that happened to you?

  4. There was a time I had a schedule and kept to that schedule. But these days, I just post now and then when I feel like it. I have been thinking of going back to being disciplined with a schedule…that’s all I have done, think about it.

  5. I rarely do posts ahead of time. I have strange sleeping/not sleeping hours and blogging often fills that time. I only have 1 item in my drafts folder. I did spend some time a few days ago deleting “followers” who don’t even exist and people who are “followers” with four different blog labels but the same picture. I will do more of that as time permits.

  6. I schedule most of my posts a week ahead. I tidy up my blog frequently, mainly to be sure I don’t have missing images. Except for scheduled posts, I don’t have drafts in cue. I write in a word doc and then copy/paste.

  7. For some reason, my back garden looks a lot more interesting than my drafts folder and watching a movie or reading a book is infinitely more fascinating than revamping my blog. Perhaps there’s something wrong with me!
