Blogging in 2014

Monday, 6 January 2014

So according to the old blog archive I posted 191 times on here in 2013.  The regularity of posts was quite sporadic though - in some months I posted regularly every few days, but in others I rarely posted at all (September and November in particular).  One of my goals for 2014 is to be a lot more organised with blogging, to post more regularly, and to include more of the things I enjoy writing about (like OOTD's and old diary entries).  

In a bid to get some sort of schedule together I've decided to come up with a posting structure, so from now on you should expect 3 posts from me a week on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  I also want to become less sporadic on Youtube too so the plan is that I will upload a video once a week, on a Sunday (I tend to do most of my Youtube watching on a Sunday so I thought that day made the most sense).  

Tuesday (Reviews-day Tuesday)
As the name suggests, Tuesday is the day I'll post a beauty review which may be makeup, skincare or hair related.

Thursday (Throwback Thursday)
Tying in with everyones favourite Instagram hashtag I'm going to post a Throwback related post on a Thursday - this might be a retro OOTD, a song, a diary entry, or just an old embarrassing photo.

Saturday
No real category or theme for Saturday, but depending on what the other posts have been that week this will either be a lifestyle related post (e.g. a day out) or fashion related (e.g. an OOTD or a wish list).  As I mentioned in my December life update I'm going to change up my monthly summary and do a highlights post each month so this will be posted the first Saturday of each month.

Sunday
I want to get more into Youtube this year and am planning on uploading a video every Sunday.  Some of the types of video I'm thinking of filming include Get Ready With Me, House Tour, What's In My Wardrobe, Vlogs, as well as a Monthly Favourites video covering beauty, fashion & lifestyle elements.

So that's the plan - I can't guarantee that every single week I'll stick to it but I really want to at least try to.  I figured if I posted about the schedule then that would give me a bit of a push to make sure I actually did it…..so no going back now!

    1. Might steal your idea of having an editorial schedule, sounds like a good way to keep organised. x

  3. I need to get organised like you and have a plan! The problem is the lighting in winter though - there's such a small window of time to get anything done in and it's when I'm at uni! Going to order some lighting and then hopefully all my problems will be solved :L
