Yes, another post for my blogging friends. Sorry for being boring to my other sweet readers. I have a lot in store for you very soon!
Okay, I love using my blogging calendar but sometimes I need to add amendments to help it suit my needs. I often write in reminders for the end of the month but will inevitably forget to do something. So, I created a printable to keep me organized. Hopefully it will help some of you as a monthly checklist or perhaps you will discover some new blogging tips.
Monthly Blogging Duties (with blogging tips)
Pinterest: Keep your readers interested by changing the cover photos of your Pinterest boards. Choosing cover photos with similar colors will make your Pinterest home page appear appealing and organized. If needed, update board descriptions and add appropriate hashtags. Move current seasonal/holiday boards up top if applicable. For more ways to optimize Pinterest, click HERE.
Delete pins from other sites that only receive 1-2 repins after a couple of weeks. Your fans and Pinterest want to see your popular pins. If you have pins from your blog or website that aren’t doing well, try updating the image or change the pin description with better keywords.
Update banners: Use social media to feature recent posts and keep your fans intrigued. Seasonal and holiday banners are an easy way to keep your readers excited about what’s happening and what’s to come in the future. PicMonkey is a great site to create these for free.
StumbleUpon: Stumble your own likes once a month to refresh your profile for readers.
Update Blog Portfolio: Add new projects to your portfolio if they are not automatically added. Make sure you are sharing relevant (seasonal/holiday) projects up front!
Expenses: A friendly reminder to record monthly expenses and earnings into your blog planner or all in one place.
Stats: Record monthly stats into your blog planner.
Emails: I struggle with this one so a monthly reminder is necessary! Take a little time to go through emails, organize ones you need to save into folders. Mark spam and unsubscribe from unnecessary ones.
