Do You Want to be a Pro Blogger in Three Easy Steps?

Standard

I’m far from being a Pro Blogger. But I did make a decision to blog at least once a week, which is not always easy. Then I stumbled across a blog that categorized a system that I was already implementing, only I didn’t realize there was name for it. A Blogging Bucket.

A blogging bucket consists of ADDing things:

  • Assess
  • Decide
  • Do

The Assess Bucket

Place every single idea you have about a future blog post in a folder on your computer or write it down in a notebook. The Assess Bucket is to just capture and assess the ideas.

The Decide Bucket

The Decide Bucket is like a calendar. Here you plan and schedule exactly what you’re going to do with your ideas.

The Do Bucket

Implement the ideas from the decide bucket. Here is where you get down to the business of actually writing and polishing your blog post.

When I procrastinate (which is most of the time), and the ticking clock pounds inside my head, I just click on my folder, assess an idea, make a decision, and then do it–just write the darn post.

If you have a system in place you’ll be more productive and you’ll enjoy the process.

Do you have a system in place?

  1. Hey- I think I do this too! Once I start writing one post, it usually makes me think of other things to write about, so I start a draft post that I save to work on later. On the other hand, when the ideas are coming easily, I will write more than one post in one sitting, and then postdate them for when the second or third one should be published. So if I don’t get busy on the next post for three weeks, I will still have regular posts going up. Does that make any sense?

    • Great minds think alike.
      Only you’re one step ahead of me. By the time I have a piece ready to post, I’ve run out of time.
      I try and limit my time on the internet and/or blogging as I need to get my novel finished.
      Thanks, Brenda
