Planning Blog Content

How do you have time to blog each week?

This is the one of the most asked questions and comments I get online (Instagram) so it’s about time I address it! Something I would never think so many of you would be interested in hearing me talk about! Though I’m always happy to share and connect with each of you. So todays is the day I finally answering this question as a group!

Being 6 months pregnant and beyond sick for the first trimester, a toddler to take care, running a household, teaching dance, and no outside help or babysitters… you do ask a great question. I would agree!

My best response has always been, I’m a planner. And I'm passionate about whatever I take on in life.

I’m by far an expert on blogging! (and those of you who have told me otherwise, I so appreciate you! Your support and belief in me). I love what I’m doing, and I have so many plans and dreams for the future of this blog. 

However yes, planning and organizing is something I truly enjoy and it actually took me awhile to find a system that worked!

So, what do I actually do to get a blog post published every week? Well, below I'm sharing exactly what steps I take for the 7 days leading up to one blog post. Most of my daily tasks are done early in the AM hours before Abby wakes up, or after she’s in bed (if it doesn’t include taking photos).

There are so many ways to plan and create something however this is the setup that has worked for me as a mom! Below is how I planned for my latest blog post, The DIY Star Garland (Pottery Barn Inspired) to help give you an example. 

What I have:

||  1  ||
A booklet 
(for jotting down ideas)

||  2  ||
A weekly calendar 
(daily task to complete)

||  3  ||
A monthly calendar 
(Big due dates – weekly blog post/collaborations)

I hope this post helps those of you who are looking for ideas on how to organize all the mom things in life (a job that's constantly changing, amen?!) As we wear many hats and this system has worked great for me! 

And because I know a few of you will ask...

If you're interested in getting these stationary items for yourself, Ellie & Piper has so generously offered all of you 20% off her shop with the promo code MAMAJOTS! Ellie & Piper is a party, paper and all things cute and darling (no seriously, everything is just beyond cute my heart can't take it sometimes!) run by Tina. 

One of my favorites that I've recently connected with. Plus, I just simply fell in love with her shop and honestly, if I were to run a small shop (which also has darling Easter basket goodies!) her shop is exactly what I would I sell. I highly recommend checking out her out! 

Happy Planning : )

Warmly, Steph
