3 Tips for Cranking Out Blog Posts

Sometimes you just have those days where you have no time to write any posts.  On those days, it would be nice to know that something will just post on it's own.  This is why you should take a few days each month and just write a bunch of posts.  Then you can schedule them throughout the month and the only thing you have to worry about is promoting them, although there are apps for that too!

Staying on track and getting 5 or more posts done in one sitting can be tough.  So, I put together some tips to help you!

1. Have a list of topics.
    + Write down post ideas whenever they come to you so you don't have to come up with post topics & write them at the same time.  (Actually write them on paper, preferably something that won't get lost.  You will not remember that idea you had at 3 am.)

2. Block out time, but take breaks.
     + Writing for 10 minutes sporadically won't help you very much since you will have lost your train of thought.
     + Try writing for about 50 minutes (or more if you're not at a good stopping point) then take a 10 minute break.  Scroll through Twitter, go on a walk, make yourself some tea- whatever you need to do, but limit it to 10 minutes.

3. Keep distractions to a minimum.
     + You don't need to have Pinterest open in another tab. It will not help you.
     + Put your phone on silent.  It's great that someone tagged you in an Instagram photo, but you can check it out later.

Other than that, I would suggest focusing on your goal.  You're going to be whipping posts out in no time.
