DAILY BLOGGING WITH A FULL TIME JOB

Hi there lovelies!

Today I wanted to share with you something that is kind of close to my
heart, daily blogging with a full time job. I wake up every morning at 4AM,
publish a new post - if it's anywhere near finished and prepared to be
published, take a sip of my coffee and go to work.
At work I usually spend my breaks with thinking about blogging. So, what are
my favourite tips to handle the situation?

#1 WRITE YOUR POSTS WAY BEFORE YOU'RE ABOUT TO PUBLISH THEM

This is super important for me. When we went to Spain, I planned my posts
to be simple to write and photoshoot - so first of all, it wouldn't take my
energy on the vacation.
Usually I spend my day offs and weekends shooting pictures for my blogposts
and writing them. Sometimes I even write one night before it's published, but
that's in extreme situations.
That's the reason why every single one of my posts about gigs comes out 1-3 days
after I actually were there. I do write in advance, and it's so wonderful feeling when
you have posts and pictures in stock.

#2 WHEN BEING SUPER BUSY, TAKE GUEST BLOGGERS

I did this when I started daily blogging, was studying for entrance exams and
went to work every single day. So that schedule I had was so insane I just did
not have the time to write the posts. To keep the daily blogging game going on
whole month, I had to take guest bloggers to write for me. I know another busy
months will be February and March in 2017 - so if you think you've got the right
post for me, just send it to my way (jasubloggaa@gmail.com) ! So yes, I'm on a
search for guest bloggers again, but I'm starting actively find them in January.

#3 PLAN EVERY SINGLE MONTH

I've got posts planned for 6 months advance now. I know, things can change - but
at least I have a clear thing inside of my head and if I'm about to change the schedule
I just simply move posts around. Or if something special happens in my life and I feel
a need to write about it, I just casually move the post I've planned to somewhere else.

#4 SCHEDULING TWEETS

So, for your posts to get publicity - twitter is the right platform for that. I mean,
nobody enjoys when you're using FB like Twitter so yes, tweet scheduling is the
key word here.
Being at work, or if you just want the day off from everything you can still keep
your blog going on strong. Just schedule your promotional tweets.
I use Tweetdeck to do that, but if I don't have access to my laptop or computer I
use Buffer instead. You should actually check those up, my views got super high
after I started scheduling tweets.

#5 TAKE A DAY OFF

It's okay to have a break. Take a day off, sometimes it does wonders. It let's you
breath. During your day off just don't even think about your blog and the next day
it feels so much better.
I've got a loads of days offline - you haven't noticed huh? Yes, because I schedule
everything.
