So, I’m not the most organised person. I have a million post-its on my desk telling me do things I will never get round to doing and about 10 different checklists I will spend ages on but never actually use. But I am however pretty good at getting blog posts out every week. So, how do I manage that you may be asking? Here are a few pointers for the unorganised bloggers.
Trello is your best friend. If you work in an office environment this is especially great because you can keep a board for your blog and your professional work.
This is basically a checklist system so that you can see everything in one place and move things around with no problems. I have mine set up for both work and my blog so I can never forget to write my post because it’s right there next to my everyday tasks.
(Blurred because it’s private but you get the gist of what it does)
This is a lifesaver for the unorganised. I’m always losing things and forgetting the names of references etc. So instead of having a majorly cluttered bar I will pin them. This also means if you close the browser you won’t lose your tabs!
3. Keep a notepad with you
So I’ve started to do this more often because I will be on the bus or out shopping when something just pops into my head. Or if I’m on the bus reading (like I usually am) and I have something to critique I’ll quickly jot it down for later. This comes in so handy when you’re forgetful and sometimes lose your head.
Another way to keep track of things you’ve found is Pocket. it’s a bookmarking system that lets you view content in the page rather than taking you to the original source – great for if you’ve got a bad connection or a messy browser.
well, these were my tips to stay organised when writing your blog. If you’ve got any more tips I’d love to hear them so send my way and I’ll do a follow up post with all of your suggestions.
Have a great day!
