How does a blogger prepare?
I'm not going to lie, I have spent a great deal of time over the past few months writing out editorial content for this little space of mine so that when Little Bear arrives, Sweet Stella's can function on its own.
Yes, stats will not be the same, and no there won't be as many reviews or giveaways. But, there will be content posted nearly every single day and likely a live post here and there (watch for those 4am posts, they were the easiest time when Owen was just born and nursing, or when I was pumping).
I have gone into this whole process feeling more determined than ever that while our life at home is certainly going to change and our family will grow by two tiny feet, my blog will continue.
In my opinion, it's all about scheduling. Thankfully, since I blog about lifestyle, projects and whatnot, I can schedule alot of my content ahead of time. I know that not every blogger is in the same boat, but scheduling has given me the control I needed to take make sure that all of the goals that I have for the fall, winter and next year won't be for not.
Automation also helps a tonne. I love BlogLovin' for pumping out my blogposts to Facebook and Twitter automatically. It means that all I have to do is whip on in the morning, and Pin my posts, then ask a few awesome blogger friends if they don't mind pumping them out as well. If you can find a good supportive group of bloggers who are willing to exchange links and promote one anothers posts, awesome!
Is there anything I'm missing that will make this transition easier? Apps? Tricks? Tips? Leave me a comment!
