My Ultimate Game plan for the Blog

In my previous article, I have explained " Tips to getting back to blogging after a long break" but you don't have to write random blog posts. I required to serve great articles and attract new readers as well. Hence I decided to make my Ultimate Game plan for the Blog to stay consistent with my work.

My Ultimate Game plan for the Blog


Since I have updated theme and wrote a comeback post, I was thinking to broad my niche and include food and fashion with my travel blog posts. There are few questions in my mind before I have started making my game plan.

  1. How frequent should I publish the post?
  2. Which day should I publish my blog post?
  3. Which topics to include?
  4. Do I have required material (pictures, videos etc.)?
  5. Can I write in advance?



1. How frequent should I publish the post?


Now let's try to answer above five questions. The very first question is about a frequency of the post. That means are you planning to write the post weekly, biweekly or once a month. How to decide that? Technically, if you take a long time then your readers might forget you. Hence better to write frequently, I think once a week is a reasonable time to write a post for you and good for your readers too. I know many people write twice even thrice a week, but you do as per your capacity. Remember focus on quality, not quantity.

2. Which day should I publish my blog post?


The second question is decide which day of the week you want to publish. There are seven days in a week, so you have plenty of option isn't it? Just keep in your mind whatever day you decide to keep it consistent. Try to post on the same day every week, so your reader is aware that when they can get to read the new post.

3. Which topics to include?


Earlier I was writing about travel places and product reviews, but now I am planning to broad my niche and include fashion and food as well, so now the biggest question is how I will manage all three topics on one blog? Hence I have to decide which topic goes on which week.




4. Do I have required material (pictures, videos etc.)?


The next is material required for the blog post, you cannot decide the topics until you are able to generate original content. Also, think about long term. Once you include topic you at least should have content for five - seven post and you will get new ideas as you start writing.Can I write in advance?

5. Can I write in advance?


Once you decide your topics don't wait till last day to write a post. Sometimes you get emergency or maybe you are not able to access the internet then you will not able to write or publish your post. Hence better to schedule it ahead. I generally prefer to schedule at least 2-3 days ahead of the publish date. If you are not able to schedule that early then try to do it at least before one day. That way no last minute hustle and you can start working on next post, so ultimately you are getting ahead of time.

Tips to getting back to blogging after a long break

I have been enjoying holidays and taking the vacation to give time to myself. Sometimes I just want to stay alone and think about my past and future. Taking a vacation is good to find yourself. So finally I am getting back to blogging after a long break. Last week when I was checking my blog's control panel I realize I had written the last post in October 2016. Hence, I sat back and decided my 2017 goals for life and decided to start writing again. The big question for me was from where should I start? Hence, I decided to start from the "Tips to getting back to blogging after a long break".

Tips to getting back to blogging after a long break

Before you directly jump on writing an article take a moment and think. Think about in which direction you want to take your blog. I would advise you to follow the steps given below.

1. Decide your goals.

All bloggers and writers have their own goal. Generally, I set goals for the individual year, that way you can stay on track. Your set of goals helps you stay motivated as well. There is no specific time to set goals. I know people say you should set your goals from the day one of January but it's not necessary. In our language, we have motivation thought "Morning starts the moment you woke up." Hence, write your goals in your daily task book and get aboard. 


2. Stay Motivated

Don't think blogging as a work. You are passionate about blogging and that's why you have started it. Don't take the pressure of a quantity of the post rather focus on a quality of the post. Earlier I was considering posting each week, but now I am thinking only 2 posts in a month and giving different content to my reader

3. Give a makeover to your blog/website

Finally, I have changed the theme of my blog successfully and gave a new look to it. You will get plenty of free themes as well. It depends on what type of theme you prefer. I have also updated the plugins and now I will try to focus on analytics of the blog.

4. Set a schedule and stay consistent in blogging

Why set a schedule? The schedule will help you to stay focus on the blog. Before you go to bed take your diary and note down what you are going to do tomorrow. Note down Each and every task. Suppose you have a list of things.
  1. Share a picture on Instagram.
  2. write a tweet and share on twitter.
  3. Note down ideas for a new post.
So even if its small task you should note down. That way you will not miss any task.


5. Clear all pending work

Once you have to update your blog look, go to control panel and check where you left? I mean, check the pending comments, approve if they are suitable and spam the rest of it. Go the pages and posts and update as required. Ultimately, clear your all backlogs and start from fresh.

6. Write ultimate comeback post

You might want to share with your reader where have you been? It's not necessary that you just want to jump on some topic to write about. You can share your feelings with your reader and it can be helpful to them to stay motivated. It's OK to take a break from your work. When I was writing my comeback post I was thinking what should I write and I realize I should share my experience and encourage others to do what they love to do.

7. Share on social media and stay visible  

Now, as you are coming back share on your social media so you readers know you are back to blogging and they can get to read your articles once again. Let them know your plans and how you will be executing them.
