How I fit blogging into my daily routine

I love blogging and I love being a mum. On top of these, I work as a freelance writer and have a dog with recurring colitis. To say that my days are busy, is a bit of an understatement. There are times when I struggle to fit everything in and these are often the days where we end up having a quick ‘bung it in the oven day’. I am, however, determined to keep all the cogs turning and post new blog posts several times a week. So, I thought I’d share with you my current daily blogging schedule.

Joining linkies

Blogging linkies are a great way to get your content seen, make blogger friends and discover new blogs. I try to join four or five of them week, although, there was a time I was joining double that figure. Most linkies open in the morning, so, I aim to join as early as I can. I used to join and do all my commenting straight away. However, I now usually comment a day or so later. Thankfully, it doesn’t take too long to link up, tweet and add the linky badge to my post so I can usually get away with doing it when Little E is playing with her toys.

Writing new content

I currently write most of my content laying on the bedroom floor, waiting for my daughter to go to sleep. Writing on my phone isn’t the quickest way to get a post drafted, but it works for me. I used to write my posts during her nap times, but, I now use that time to work. I actually find I more focused the way I’m currently doing it. For example, during our first week of sleep training, I drafted a new post every evening.

Finishing touches and scheduling

There’s only so much blogging you can do on your phone. One day a week, I review everything I’ve drafted, edit it and proof read it and add photos to my posts. I then schedule it to go live and set up a couple of tweets on socialoomph to promote my post once it hits my blog.

How do you fit blogging into your daily routine? I’d love to hear in the comments section below.

  1. I have finally settled into a routine after several years of blogging. I have certainly helped me be more productive. Before I was all over the place! Have a great weekend x

  2. I have a set routine for blogging during the hours that my son is at preschool, but I regularly work evenings as well to fit it in. It isn’t ideal but I love it so much that I’m happy to put the extra time in 🙂 thanks so much for sharing your routine with #Blogstravaganza 🙂

  3. It’s tough trying to manage so many things along with a blog and a social media presence. I manage to do most of it early in the morning before I go to work and on the weekends. #blogstravaganza

  4. Routine is key. I love linkies though they were a game changer for me, made it way more social and fun #blogstravaganza
