Welcome to the 2nd Series in my weekly “Blogger Learning Series.” Last week I discussed ways to Grow Your Instagram Account; this week, I am giving you guys an overview of what an average day for a fashion blogger looks like. I will review the good, the bad, and the FUN moments of blogging!
If you are thinking abut starting a blog, new to blogging, or looking for ways to spice up your routine, this will be a good read for you.
Morning: Time to Plan
I usually start my morning with a healthy breakfast, a workout session, and then post any new Instagram material; next, I check the previous day’s stats. If you have not downloaded the Google Analytics App to your phone, you have to drop whatever you are doing and go do it!
It is free to install and I love being able to check my site activity throughout the day. This way, you can see which daily posts and Instagram pictures are the most popular, by observing real-time traffic to your site.
Planning…oh planning. I am always planning what’s NEXT! I try and post 4-5 times per week to keep my audience engaged. I usually post 2-3 outfits per week, a “Friday Favorites” post showing what I am currently “eyeing,” a “Round-Up” post showing recent popular Instagram posts, and some type of helpful learning piece. I am also starting to dabble in travel posts , which has been so fun!
Tip #1: Utilize your Blog Calendar
Building a Blogging Calendar has been a huge life-saver for me. When you have so much content swimming in your head, trying to juggle it all can be overwhelming. Giving yourself the option of getting out in front of your schedule will make blogging so much more enjoyable and less stressful. Like I said, I do outfit posts on the same days every week so I have the flexibility to get creative with the other days.
Building in a weekly routine and scheduling which outfits will be posted on certain days will help you plan into the future. For instance, right now, I know that I have outfit posts that will last me until mid-April –this tells me that I have several weeks to plan for the next fashion shoot.
