Mini Blog Ahead: Get Ahead on Blog Posts

Posted March 22, 2018 by shooting in Discussion / 47 Comments

The lovely Anna from Herding Cats & Burning Soup is hosting a Mini Blog Ahead starting on Saturday, March 24 and ending on Saturday, April 7th. That’s a full two weeks to try and write and schedule as many blog posts as you can so you have a little bit of a cushion for your blog.

Mini Blog Ahead: Spend the next couple weeks writing & scheduling blog posts! #ontheblog #bloggers Click To Tweet

You guys…I have nothing scheduled for my blog. That’s right – NOTHING! I have got to get on it. It doesn’t help that I’ve actually read a lot of books that I just haven’t written reviews for and scheduled. That’s one thing I know I’ll be focusing on these next two weeks. I’d also like to get some other fun things scheduled out, like a discussion post or two. We’ll see!

Anything you’d like to see me write about?

Also – if you’ve missed my last couple posts, I do recommend checking them out. There’s my movie review for Love, Simon and my Author Event Recap with Mackenzi Lee (she wrote Bygone Badass Broads and A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue).

  1. This is always on my to-do list and yet I rarely get around to scheduling posts ahead of time. With lots of holidays coming up, it makes sense and I need to get to it.

  2. I love the idea of an outside nudge to schedule more items. I try to do that for certain topics and anniversaries, but it’s hard to keep up! Thanks for the heads-up about the mini blog ahead!

    I wish I could get ideas to blog ahead, but it happens very rarely. I always love the things you talk about because they’re all different and really interesting too! Hugs…RO

  4. Sounds like a great idea. One of my goals this year was to get more organized with my blogging, scheduling etc. but so far I’ve failed miserably at that! Life just gets in my way!

  5. I feel the same way! With four snowstorms this month (meaning snow days for the kids) and illnesses, I have fallen behind and need to catch up!

  6. Such a great idea, I’m almost never ahead on posts. I should really work on that because we’ll be traveling a bit this summer and it would be good to have a cushion like you said!

  7. I need to try to do this. I have lots of ideas for posts but I haven’t taken the time to write them. I want to have more frequent posts than I have had as of late. This may be the best way for me to go about it.

  8. I still have a small cushion, so that helps. Some weeks I do great and write a bunch of posts and others a falter. I need to get built up before summer hits or I will be in trouble.

  9. I totally don’t have my act together and I am usually writing the blog post for the next day the day before it is due. Not good if some crisis were to happen!! I just can’t seem to find more time in my day, though! I used to be such an organized person, too… I am not sure what happened to that person!


  10. Yes! We have posts planned but not many written yet! That is definitely going to be a goal for us in the coming months. Love having a cushion in case life gets in the way. 🙂

  11. This is so me! Just this week I’ve written ahead of schedule though. It sure is relaxing to have things done in advance! Hopefully, I can keep it up!

  12. I don’t think I read fast enough to blog ahead unfortunately 🙁 I just post as I go, unless I am away for a while. Hope you can catch up on your reviews!

  13. The only blog post I have in drafts at any given time is my book post. I have used up all the pre-drafted post ideas I had and haven’t had time to get any new ones started. I am so far behind on reading and commenting too. Ugh.

  14. I’m also in a blog ahead frenze right now because… Camp NaNoWrimo! Let’s see… what would I like you to write about? What about some spring recommendations? Good luck!

  15. I’ve been struggling with posts this year too Lauren, I think I’m posting every two weeks or so and as soon as I’ve written my review, I’m having to post it straight away because I currently have no other content. I’d love to see more life of a book blogger posts. I’m a nosy parker but also love seeing what other hobbies besides reading and blogging others share, like your journalling. You’re so incredibly creative and I would love to see more of your stunning work! <3

      Aw, thanks Kelly! I’m glad you like those other non-bookish posts, because they are really fun to share! I’ll have to add more.

  16. Good luck with the Blog Ahead!
    I’m taking part too as I really REALLY need to get some posts banked. I tend to post when I have time and this week I’ve managed a pathetic one post outside of a weekly recap…

  17. I need to go check that out as I am terrible about getting ahead on blogging! I used to write my posts out over the weekend and just finish up the night before, but now I pretty much write them all the night before!

  18. Amy

    I’m about to sit down and schedule posts for the upcoming week! I have never done it before. I’m hoping to write a new publication to release in June, so I need the time to create!

  19. I just started a new blog and I am working on this myself for April. I am four posts in, I have a lot of networking to do, so if I can just focus on that in April that would be great!

      I’ve done Top Ten Tuesday before, and I am thinking of trying to fit in a few of those again! They are fun.
