I have seen quite a few of these posts pop up lately, and although my blogging routine isn't anything that I consider special, I thought I would show you what I do to organise my blogging schedule!
I try to take my photos at the weekends, which admittedly can prove difficult if I am to have a social life and meet the lighting requirements! I often like to photograph and edit on a Saturday, then write and schedule my posts on a Sunday. This means I don't have all of the blogging to do on one day, and I can spread it out over 2 days.
My favourite place to photograph is on my bed or outside, as it is convenient and has good lighting! I tend to take stock photos as I don't usually know what I am going to write until I see the photos all edited, so for props I tend to use notebooks, Instax Mini 8, pens, makeup items, nail polishes, mini cacti and books. I find this gives a cute look and a bit of variety.
When it comes to writing the posts as I mentioned before I usually think of a post to write when I see the images all edited. I try to write down some post ideas to help me do this, and jot these down in a notebook and see if any of my images are appropriate. I don't plan what I am going to write, I just really let the words speak themselves and just type! When I plan I end up sounding artificial and fake which doesn't really float my boat.
I tend to write my posts and schedule them for a couple of days in advance in the morning, and I always check they go up when they are meant to! I always reply to comments, and when I have the time I always try to return comments on commenters blogs as I feel that is important to engage with readers.
What is your blogging routine?
