21 Aug – Blog Planning

How do you remember blog posts you want to write until you’re ready to sit down at the computer? Do you have a system in place, why or why not?

I’ve already got a couple of posts in mind that I want to write… eventually. All I need to do now is try and find some free time to actually write them.

Most of the time, I’m up to my eyeballs in ‘catch-up posts’ that I don’t necessarily have the time to focus on writing anything of my own accord, or anything that isn’t from a prompt. And even then, there are the odd creative posts that can take multiple days to write, because I generally only get small, random moments of time to tap out a handful of paragraphs at a time.

I have a couple of posts that I want to write, and they’re sitting in my drafts folder. Most of them just start with a couple of key-points in regards to what it is I want to write, and some really basic information on what I want the post to be, and how I want the layout to look etc.

I’ve also worked out a way to still write my creative posts, but rather than focus solely on them and then let my backlog continue to increase, I’ll start a creative piece, and write it in bits and pieces for a day or two and then change the ‘tag’ in it to something like ‘COME BACK TO ME LATER’, and then go and work on a few more regular posts. When I then log back on and view my lists of drag posts via the WordPress dashboard, I know that I can focus on all the other draft pieces, because they have no tags – so seeing ‘COME BACK TO ME LATER’ stands out immediately.

I’d like to be able to come up with some more posts that I’d like to write in the future, but I just don’t have the time.
