How to Manage Your Blog Post Ideas for a Successful Blog

The blank page.  (Or, in our case, blank screen.) Bane of writers everywhere. Vast expanse of white, waiting to be filled with words, like a field of waist-deep snow you have to slog across.

I think there’s a reason they call it a CURSE-or. Little devil, blinking at us mockingly as if to say, “So. What genius are you going to share with us today, hmmmmm?”

If you’ve ever felt this way, you’re not alone.

Even the greats faced writer’s block.

 

But when writing a blog for business, we don’t have the luxury of having writer’s block.  I always say to my clients, consistency is more important than quantity — but it is important.

That is to say, whether you’ve set yourself up to write once a week or once a month, you need to be consistent about it and deliver on that deadline.

This might be a good place to remind everyone that a blogging schedule is not the same as an editorial calendar: Editorial Calendar vs. A Blogging Schedule.

A schedule tells you when to write. An editorial calendar tells you so much more.

Building your editorial calendar.

Start with our Ultimate Content Planning System — which includes the exact templates we use with our clients for your editorial calendar, workflow for you and your team, and a content archive and ranking system so you can repurpose your best content.

In my Ultimate Guide to blogging effectively for solopreneurs, I listed some of the big rocks you need to understand when blogging for business, like defining your blogging goals and your most valuable readers.

Once you’ve figured those out, the next step is to put them into an editorial calendar.
