Tips for Getting Your Blog Organized
Create an Editorial Calendar
While you can opt to use a special calendar or blog planner, your editorial calendar doesn’t need to be anything fancy. Many use Google Sheets to have a spreadsheet template for their editorial calendar. Creating an editorial calendar helps get your blog organized in a way that keeps you productive and on task.
Use your editorial calendar to remain on point, with consistent content topics from week to week. You can have motivational Monday and work from home Wednesday. While you opt to share some humor on Friday. Whatever you determine to be the best fit for your blog, remain steadfast in being consistent with your content plan.
Proofread All Content
To gain and keep readership, you will want to ensure your blog posts are free of typos and grammatical errors. Take time to proofread everything that you put out on your blog prior to hitting that publish button. If possible, have someone else look it over too! A second pair of eyes can help catch mistakes.
Insert Relevant Images
Your potential readership will see your images first and foremost when you share your content on social media. Remember to insert relevant images with all content you publish. The best tip for your images is to also create ALT Text for them. This is easily done within the WordPress blog media upload area. All images should be saved with rich keywords that pertain to the content you will be inserting them into.
Remove Clutter & Be Consistent
It doesn’t matter what days you choose to post, but do so on a regular basis. If you are only posting three days a week, do so every single week. Remain consistent to keep readers coming back. Also, this allows you to have fresh content being pushed out on your social media accounts.
As far as clutter goes, it may sound appealing at first to sell a lot of text or ads for your sidebar. Refrain from filling up your sidebar with too many distractions. You want readers to come visit your site for your content, not to be distracted and click off your blog to advertisers.
