Tx SCC Part 4: Blogging Longevity

15 Apr

This is my 4th post in a series of the ins and outs of blogging which I learned about at the Texas Style Council Conference during SXSW Music and Film Festival in March. Check out the others in my archives on the right side bar!

The third panel I attended was about blogging longevity and how to keep up the momentum and the enthusiasm, and was moderated by Grechen from Grechen’s Closet. The panelists consisted of Kyla from Blue Collar Catwalk, Katy from Kansas Couture, and Jennine Jacob from The Coveted and Independent Fashion Bloggers. These women have been blogging successfully for a long time, and had some great advice to share on avoiding blogger burnout and how to continue writing fresh and new posts over long periods of time. Here’s what they had to share!

1. Create a blogging schedule to capitalize on those moments when you feel particularly inspired. Instead of struggling to come up with a new post every single day, write when you feel especially inspired and save those posts to publish later. Or, don’t feel pressure to post every day. My blog uses a very manageable M-W-F posting schedule, and many professional bloggers limit their posts to M-F and take weekends off. It also helps to schedule regular features such as Music Monday, Outfit Tuesday, Recipe Wednesday… etc. Sticking to a plan like this will help you stay organized and diversify your content in a manageable way. I have certain days when I come up with 10 different ideas, and instead of posting them all immediately I save them up and post them over time, already written and ready to go! This saves the day when I have too much school work to come up with something original on the spot. Continue reading
