Every great writer has their own process! What’s the blogging process look like for you? Do you set
aside time each week to write or do you wait until the inspiration hits? Do you finish a post in one
night or use the week to perfect it? Do you edit your blogs or just hit publish? Whatever it is you
do, it’s unique to you and we want to learn about it.
Usually, when I write, it is because I have instant (or recent) inspiration. I do have some posts that I prepare sometimes months ahead of time because it is a topic I want to cover but then don’t get to for a while.
Those tend to be those informative posts like “Hey, you should know these insurance terms!”
I try to finish my blog posts in one sitting most of the time, save the above. When I write product reviews, for example, I may take notes in my posts before publishing about what I need to remember to mention – whether that’s my own idea or something I’ve been asked to go over. Still, I almost always do the actual writing portion all at one time.
I’ll edit for grammar and the like, but, usually, do this as I go doing a final once-over at the end.
When I have graphics for my blog, I try to do those either when I come up with the topic idea OR when I’ve come up with a title.
After I initially had come up with those theme days like ‘Meditation Monday,’ I tried to blog several times a week. Now, however, that isn’t always a possibility. And that’s okay!
Do you blog? What’s your process like?
