MY BLOGGING PROCESS


I feel that in the past few weeks I have really got myself organised and into a proper blogging routine. Creating a blog process that makes me productive has been a long time coming. I wanted to share my process with my readers as it's a post I have seen frequently popping up in my blog feed and one I have loved reading. There is something interesting about comparing your blogging process with others. 

PLANNING
This is a new aspect of my blogging process. It's a simple but effective method that I love using when it comes to creating the perfect content for my blog. I have two main notebooks which I use to help me plan what I want to blog for the week ahead. I begin by looking for inspiration which I commonly find in magazines, other blogs and Pinterest. I write a rough list of possible blog posts, making sure I haven't done it before and it will be valuable to my readers. Once I have some up with some ideas that I definitely want to feature on my blog I will begin planning in more detail, which I go through in  the writing section of this post.

PHOTOGRAPHY 
This is probably one of the most time consuming aspects of my blogging process and the one I enjoy the most. I think that when you are taking photos for your blog they should be consistent and have a similar look to them. This can be achieved by the time you choose to take your photos ensuring the consistent light and tones. I commonly take my photos between 11am and 1pm. Some people plan what they want in their images but this isn't really for me. It probably takes me a little longer but I can't pre plan my photos, it's something that only comes to me as I am styling the image, moments before capturing it. 



WRITING 
This has to be my most challenging aspect of blogging. I don't particular love writing my content and it is totally dependent on my mood. I would love to be one of those people who can sit at their computer for 3 to 4 hours and produce my weeks worth of posts but from past experiences this only compromises my content and not really worth it in the long run. I have to complete my posts throughout the weeks in small bursts. I usually only write my blog post two days or the day before it is published. Once I have completed the writing of my post I save it and don't look at it for a few hours before returning with fresh eyes and making any alterations needed.

PUBLISHING 
The last and probably the most exciting part of my blogging process is pressing publish. It can be a common perception that your job is done once you hit publish but this is when another set of roles begin. I usually send a tweet and upload an Instagram to let people know that a new post has gone live. I also pin the image on Pinterest. I love to see the reaction my new post has caused and replying to the kind comments that people have taken the time to write. I then begin the process all over again, preparing for the next post. 

What is your blogging process ?
