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.

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.

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… 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

    1. Yeah I've thought about buying lighting too but really haven't a clue where to start! Let me know how you get on with yours :) x

  4. This is such a good schedule! I always try things like this and never end up sticking to them so well done to you haha :)xx
