Take time to plan when you’ll write blog posts and on which days you’ll post to different social platforms. Don’t overwhelm yourself by doing it all in one day.If you decide to participate in this challenge, this is my coschedule referral link. You get a two week free trial just for signing up through this link!
Through CoSchedule, we schedule our social media when we write a post. As soon as we schedule a post, we use the Yoast SEO plugin for optimization and then scroll below that where we’ll find our CoSchedule plugin.
Here is the outline of our use of CoSchedule in relation to publishing a new post:
- Whitty Tweet about the post
- Tweet that goes NEW POST: Post title
- Another attempt at a Whitty Tweet
- Facebook Post that tries to include a question
- ICYMI Tweet
- Another Tweet
- Facebook Post about what an awesome post we published a month ago
- Drier tweet because I’m not clever enough to be that whitty
- Tweet FROM THE ARCHIVES: Post title
- Facebook post about how far we’ve come, if that’s relevant
I cannot wait for the day that CoSchedule will let me pin my post then too. I generally pin a little bit each day. In October, I tried pinning for 20 minutes each day, but I didn’t really stick to it. Maybe when this challenge is over.
When do we write posts though?
That is, of course, the first part of today’s challenge. And, the answer? Good question. Whenever inspiration strikes, really. Right now, I have a laundry list of posts I want to write and just haven’t had the time to actually write (part of why I’m doing this challenge is to get back into the groove of things).
Here’s the challenge in effect: I’m going to actually schedule times for my writing next week. I have my night class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so I’ve just scheduled three days next week to write with each time slot having enough time to write at least one blog post for Burke Does.
Let’s see how it goes. That’s the point of a challenge, right?
