How to Be a More Consistent Blogger

Posted By Darren Rowse 29th of March 2016 General 0 Comments


Sometimes, life just gets in the way of blogging.

Sometimes your motivation is waning, sometimes work is too busy, sometimes the kids are sick, and sometimes you just need a break. But we all know consistent posting is one of the keystones to blogging success, and so sorting out a workflow that helps you be more productive or use your time more wisely can be one of the best things you can do.

How to Be a More Consistent Blogger

I wanted to discuss this topic on today’s ProBlogger podcast after a question from Jason Stevens from Digital Tools of the Trade – how do you maintain blogging consistency?

If this is something you struggle with (it would be the rare blogger who didn’t at some point!), I hope today’s tips help keep your motivation out of the pits, and your blog out of the dead zone (and if it’s content ideas that are hindering you, don’t forget to download our free file with 180 blog post ideas to help keep you on track).

If it’s something else that holds you back, you might find today’s discussion is just what you need – and if it’s something else you struggle with, please feel free to leave a comment or a tweet and let me know what it is.

Discussion points:

  • Managing your expectations
  • Brainstorming and content idea creation
  • Prioritising tasks
  • What to do when you start well but never finish
  • Ranking post types
  • Tools
  • Editorial calendars and content schedules
  • Getting back to your roots

Motivation changes as every blogger does, but sometimes it just takes one small, simple idea to help you frame your experience differently, and all of a sudden you’re on fire again.

I hope you find that idea today.

  1. Hi Darren, just some constructive feedback. I couldn’t initially find the play button on the page, so nearly missed your valuable episode! Be great to have bigger more visible player on the site!

    Keep up the great work!

  2. This is such a great topic to master. I’ve limited my blogging frequency in an attempt to blog more consistently. After finally transitioning to WordPress after years using another system, I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the scheduling tools available.

    Thanks for the tips!

  3. I think the biggest thing, is to not put too much pressure on yourself. So many bloggers worry about being perfect. That one pressure can often be enough to make bloggers land in a constant state of inertia.

    Just be yourself. That way, you attract the readers who you were always meant to. Even if your writing is less than perfect. ;)

  4. I do struggle with my blogging activities on a daily basis. I really needed a post like this to make my brain clear on what I could do to organise myself better for organising my blogging activities. Thanks a ton for this brilliant article.

  5. I definitely have this problem. I start off blogging daily and then stop for months. I just lose the passion for it and get bored quickly.
