Trying a Content Calendar

Trying a Content Calendar

It has been just over two weeks, now, since I started using a content calendar to help plan out my posts, thanks to a walk-through from Endalia, and I have to admit that while I’m still behind on blog posts for Blapril, it has helped me significantly to plan out my ideas, and rejigger posts on the fly when I come up with more relevant ideas.

To be honest, I’ve been told before by folks to try a content calendar, and one of the books I’m reading for my adult businesses swears on using a content calendar. But I could never get myself to try it out because I thought it would just be so much work to get it set up.

Thankfully, Endalia proved me absolutely wrong, and I have noticed that I feel more motivated to blog and come up with post ideas for both this blog and my sex blog with the calendar available to peep.

It’s also helping me to get better (albeit slowly, still) at trying to be more consistent with my content output, by making it less stressful overall. If I know something’s going to go out on X day, and I write it ahead of time (and schedule the tweet advertising it ahead of time) then my work is done in about 45-60 minutes much before it’s due. It’s something I’m okay at with my adult clips, but I’m still working on getting better. I definitely think this is going to assist me with that.

This is post 12/31 for Blapril. You can find out more and sign up at Belghast’s original post. You can view those participating on Twitter via the Twitter list I put together. Nogamara of Battlestance has put together an RSS feed of all Blapril participants.

  1. I also started using a content calendar about a week ago, although mine is a .txt file. A little less robust than your solution!

    Most of my blog posts are ‘journal’ entries so I don’t keep track of things too far in advance, but it is motivating me to knock out some posts I’ve wanted to do for a while.

    1. When I do journal posts they very much take precedence over other topics, but I have been enjoying having topics at least planned out in case I don’t have a journal or gaming thoughts that’s more immediate. I’m glad it’s motivating you to knock posts out! 🙂
