My Blogging Routine


I have seen quite a few of these posts pop up lately, and although my blogging routine isn't anything that I consider special, I thought I would show you what I do to organise my blogging schedule!

I try to take my photos at the weekends, which admittedly can prove difficult if I am to have a social life and meet the lighting requirements! I often like to photograph and edit on a Saturday, then write and schedule my posts on a Sunday. This means I don't have all of the blogging to do on one day, and I can spread it out over 2 days.

My favourite place to photograph is on my bed or outside, as it is convenient and has good lighting! I tend to take stock photos as I don't usually know what I am going to write until I see the photos all edited, so for props I tend to use notebooks, Instax Mini 8, pens, makeup items, nail polishes, mini cacti and books. I find this gives a cute look and a bit of variety.

When it comes to writing the posts as I mentioned before I usually think of a post to write when I see the images all edited. I try to write down some post ideas to help me do this, and jot these down in a notebook and see if any of my images are appropriate. I don't plan what I am going to write, I just really let the words speak themselves and just type! When I plan I end up sounding artificial and fake which doesn't really float my boat.

I tend to write my posts and schedule them for a couple of days in advance in the morning, and I always check they go up when they are meant to! I always reply to comments, and when I have the time I always try to return comments on commenters blogs as I feel that is important to engage with readers.

What is your blogging routine?

  1. Great post! I like to write my posts on my phone and then send them over my email to my laptop, strange I know! I always take my photos in bulk! It saves time in the long run X

    1. Thanks Nicole! Do you write them via the Blogger app or on your notes etc? I have tried using the blogger app but I can't stand it unfortunately, haha! x

  2. I tend to write a post, then find a photo from the ones I have previously taken! This sounds a bit strange I know, I tend to be more prepared if I'm feeling more organised!

    I'm also commenting to inform you that I have moved my blog to one with a more suitable name and design. I would be more than grateful if you would like to resubscribe and come along with me!

    1. Thanks Laura! This is what I have been meaning to do as well, but the majority of my holiday has been spent binge watching Pretty Little Liars - oops! x

  4. I prefer writing my posts on a standard computer - the Blogger app is too glitchy for me personally. I've downloaded it several times just to delete it after a couple uses, but to read posts I love Bloglovin. It's wonderful to see what others use and love!
