Blogger Organization

Hello Lovelies!

As you might have noticed I have been finding it hard to get into a routine with my blogging, so as part of my new years resolutions which I posted about here I have challenged myself to become more organized! So when I was recently sent a bloggers "Survival Pack" from Viking I knew that it was the perfect opportunity to get started. The pack came with everything from notebooks to a USB stick so I got straight on it and started putting everything to good use! 

I thought I would share with you some tips that I have found really helped me get back into more of a routine with my blog posts. 

  • Write lists- From monthly favourites to shopping lists I write it all down. I love making lists and even that makes me feel more organized. Especially with monthly favourites it can be hard to keep track of the products from the beginning of the month to the end that you have been loving so when it comes to writing up the post you can just look at your list and know exactly what you wanted to write about.

  • Take pictures in bulk- If like me you struggle with getting proper daylight to take nice pictures the best option is once you get a decent amount of daylight to photograph in use it to the max! Again with the lists, plan your posts ahead and know what products you need to photograph and be prepared. I recently bought lighting which is so helpful during these dreary days!

  • Try and set a schedule for posting- May it be once every three days or even once a week, if you have a set day that you know you wanted to get a new blog post up on you are more likely to work towards that day and have it done in time. I personally try to post once every two-three days and I try to stick to that as best I can.

  • Have back-up posts-There are times where I don't always get the pictures I wanted to take, or I didn't get a chance to write up what I wanted. But I always try to have a couple of posts saved in my drafts for a rainy day. I might just be feeling uninspired but I still want to post so I keep something from when I did have a bit more motivation and post it whenever I feel the need to!

  • Don't stress! Blogging is meant to be a bit of fun and if your not enjoying it, it will definitely come through in your writing and it will all seem abit forced.

So those are my tips for staying organized when blogging if you have any other tips that you think other bloggers may find useful please leave them below! 


  1. If I am doing an opinion post or a long post, I write a list of the main parts I wanted to talk about and with each topic, I do a spider diagram for each. If you don't have time for a longer post, tag posts are excellent :)

  2. Great post! :) xx


  3. Great tips. I'm trying out a few of these. I've been taking a few pictures at once and I'm in the process of scheduling a few posts. It feels a bit hectic at the moment but I think it will be easier in the long run

  8. Excellent advice and tips I couldn't agree more! I always take bulk photos and just started to draft posts for days I am busy as part of my new years resolution to also get more organised :) xx

  9. Great post! I always keep up some backup posts in drafts - ones that aren't urgent and can really be posted anytime. Then if I fall behind with new posts I don't have to panic as much! xx

  10. Lovely post! I totally agree with everything you had to say! I make lists constantly with blog post ideas and schedule out when I'm going to shoot and write posts. Keeping back up posts on hand is also really great for those weeks when you can't think of a single thing to blog about.
