How To: Create 14 Blog Articles in 1 Day – Start to Finish [Blogger Broadcast]

You might be wondering how you can pre-prepare content and schedule months in advance so you’re never behind on a post...

The answer to this is to keep on top of everything and be efficient with your time. I have a few tips and tricks that help me pump out five to seven articles a week and have a minimum of sixty posts ready to go at any given time. When you think about it, there is a lot that goes into blogging: brainstorming ideas, gathering products, taking photos, editing photos, writing posts, publishing and scheduling social media promotion, etc.
The good news is that this is a process that can be streamlined to be much more time efficient, and therefore allow you to achieve more. Try to create multiple posts at once by spending time on each of the steps for a few articles rather than running through that entire process each time you want to put a post live. You can take a day to focus on blogging to create anywhere between one and two weeks’ worth of content by following this process.

- One to two hours of brainstorming blog ideas.
- Thirty minutes of gathering all the products for those ideas.
- Two hours photographing all the products.
- An hour to ninety minutes editing the photos.
- Two to three hours writing the posts.
- An hour publishing and scheduling social media content (see the tips and tricks for social media section for further guidance on this). 

This process can take anywhere between seven and ten hours, which is basically a working day from 9 am–3 pm or 9 am – 5:30 pm.
How many posts you get done will depend on how many photos you can take in two hours, or how many posts you can write in three hours. You might start off by writing three to five posts in one day. Once you get the hang of the settings on your camera and the shortcuts for editing, it should become a much quicker process for you. You may even find yourself getting fifteen or more posts done in one day.

Balancing your time

These productivity routines and helpful habits you create as a blogger will streamline your content creation process and as such enable you to free up more mental space to focus on improving other aspects of your career. Practice makes perfect and the more you sharpen your skills in photography and writing, the
quicker you will be able to produce high-quality content out of habit.
