SCHEDULING SUNDAY

I’m usually a person who likes to write her blog posts and post them on the same day.

But sometimes you need to schedule some in amongst other things too.

I am going to schedule posts this week for Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.  If my creative juices are flowing I may have some up for the following week too. If not please bear with me while I recover from my operation.

I thought I’d find some pins that’ll help you with the scheduling process too.

I can’t credit the owner as the pins were pinned 🙈

Hope you find them helpful. You could even print them out if you like.

A positive start to 2020: My advice to you

For those of you that liked listening to my podcast I have just uploaded one to get your thoughts going of what you want from life in 2020 and beyond.

Click down below to listen, you don’t need any app to tune in.

LISTEN HERE ❤️

There is always a RSS feed at the bottom of the page: click on whichever podcast you want to listen to and it’ll take you straight to it.

Let me know your thoughts.

Organise yourself

This post can apply at any time but I think January is the optimum time to do it.

Of course having one diary can of course be helpful… But sometimes if you are a stationery addict and like getting your shit together then include some of these kind of notebooks/ journals below.

So this is a weekly spread type diary. Where you can quickly note down what you have to do or have done. I like to use this for keeping track of when my blog posts have been published. To look back on the topics with ease. Love the little note section on the opposite side, really helpful.

This is my book I write in every night. It has a space at the top to write what went on in the day, you could even draw there instead. It also asks you a question that gets you thinking. I like the concept of that.

This notepad only arrived yesterday and I was so excited. It has so many pages and 10 sections. Got to plan what subjects are going in there. It was really affordable and can be used for literally anything.

Lastly I have a 5 minute ls before bed journal which I don’t think would see you through the year so it’s one to more down special things in. I want it to be a positive thought provoking one. But you can use them as you wish. I had it for Christmas but I am pretty sure Paperchase still do it.

Am I the only stationery obsessed one around here, i hope not.

It’s not what you look like

I thought I’d write a poem today which will most likely make a feature in my book once I put it together…

Let me know what you think

🌸

It’s not what you look like, it makes you stand out I know, but does it show just who you are deep down, I think no.

Don’t be superficial and just go on looks alone, the person who you are seeking should like you for you, if not tell them to go.

Standing in front of the mirror, does it show how you feel, your happiness inside you spinning on an imaginary wheel?

Don’t worry about the outside it is not to be approved, because once you have undressed it.. all has been removed,

So worry about the inside of you before you decorate the out.

Tell the vanity inside of you to hurry up, get out.

🌸

Things you can control

In life there are some things you can’t control but there are plenty of things you can.

Here are a few below to digest

 

Your beliefs

Your attitude

Your thoughts

Your perspective

How honest you are

Who your friends are

What books you read

How often you exercise

What food you eat

What risks you take

How kind you are

How often you say I love you

How often you say thank you

How you express your feelings

Whether or not you ask for help

How many times a day you smile

The amount of effort you put into things

How much money you spend

How much time you spend worrying

How often you think about the past

Whether you judge someone or not

Whether to try again

How to appreciate the things you do have

I hope this gives you some food for thought

Til next time

Blogger points : a monthly plan

Some of us just write a blog post and post it and aren’t overly fussed about how it does or who it’s inspired.

However the majority of us do, as it shows how you grow in your journey of blogging.

So I thought about the types of things we all could do throughout the month to stay ahead of ourselves.

– Publish new blog post

– Respond to comments

– Ensure all links in post work correctly

– Comment on 5-10 peoples blog posts

– Browse Internet for inspiration

– Promote on all your social media platforms

– Check and respond to ant emails / DMs you have

– Plan and start writing your next post

– Make mind maps or bullet points for future posts

– Use Pinterest to get ideas

– Take photographs, find graphics and quotes to use in your blog posts.

– Continue to share your posts over on your socials but don’t over do it… You don’t want to appear annoying.

– Have a evaluation of how your blog is performing, print out the insights and see which ones your readers are most interested in

– Improve on things in your blog that you spot isn’t working so great, maybe your schedule of the days you post or the type of content you put out.

– Look at the theme and think do you still love it, because if you don’t… It needs to change.

I could go on and on but those were just a few pointers.

The most important thing is to interact with your readers in your blog post, the comments and then in their blog posts too. Be a loyal follower 🌸

Get your head in the game

I have just realised my title is a high school muaical song but I’m going to roll with it.

So I really think making lists is something that everyone should do.

Even if you have a mind that remembers everything.

These little beauts are from Card Factory for £2 and they pretty much are all you need to have your shit together.

In tomorrows post I am going to be talking all things blogging and what things will be helpful during each month.

So come back tomorrow and I hope today is a good start to your week.

Bring your notepad and pen to take notes.
