The best way to manage your blog content is by using a blog editorial calendar.
If you’re new to blogging or even if you’ve been in this blog game for a while — you’ll know that it can sometimes be daunting to constantly be coming up with new and engaging post topics.
Then there’s the business of having to figure out categories, tags, keywords and search engine optimization tactics.
If you are working with brands on sponsored content, it can make matters even worse!
Pro bloggers and those who blog for business (like us) know that the best way to manage your blog content is by using a blog editorial calendar. Just using a notepad alone doesn’t cut.
At See Girl Work, our blog editorial calendar gives us a big picture view of the entire month. It helps us define the overarching themes we want to cover each week. We can break down all the content we want to publish into dates, categories and tags.
We can keep track of all the See Girl Work contributors, their stories and deadlines. Plus it even helps us organize the content for the See Girl Work newsletter.
What a Blog Editorial Calendar Can Do For You
Using an editorial calendar to make sure your content strategy actually happens is a no-brainer. A blog editorial calendar can help you:
1. Schedule your own blog posts
2. Schedule blog post contributions by guest bloggers
3. Create and distribute other content such as newsletters, podcasts or videos
4. Track events that can generate content such as holidays, parties or events
5. Manage and schedule social media posts
An editorial calendar can give you peace of mind because you never have to panic about what you will be writing about or when it’s due — you will always know in advance.
