Warning: things are about to get dorky up in here. If you’re not a blogger, check back later this week. xoxo!
With blogging, there are often many moving pieces.
Come up with a topic.
Write about said topic.
Then, tell your network about your post.
Then, repeat 2-5 times a week for the rest of your life.
It’s no wonder bloggers get burned out on this!
Enter CoSchedule*. It’s a visual calendar that helps plan your posts for you. But it’s not just an editorial calendar — it hooks to all of your social media accounts.
It’s really cool, and when I use it, I’m much more productive.
Somehow, seeing all those posts/tweets/Facebook updates already scheduled makes me write more. I’m able to come up with topics quickly, and then fill the calendar for the month.
Here’s an example of what it looks like from the inside:
It’s like having a virtual assistant.
Without it, sometimes the next month on the calendar is a big, gaping blank space that can scare you and make it difficult to start writing.
But with it?
Somehow the words come easier.
I think having a beautiful interface, with drag-and-drop scheduling, has something to do with it. Also, somehow, taking topic ideas from a list and turning them into a list of drafts in WordPress makes them that much easier to write.
Details: Free 14-day trial, then after that, it’s $10/month. Try it out!
*All opinions are mine. CoSchedule is currently offering a free year of their service in exchange for reviews. They’re trying to spread the word! If you’re interested, sign up for a trial, then write a review.
