April seems to have flown by so quickly, I have no idea where all the days have gone. This is only my second real month that I have had my blog and in comparison to the amount of posts in March, I feel like I have already neglected it with the lack of blogging. My aim was to blog at least twice per week but with everything being so busy and then getting a stupid cold, I wasn’t able to post as much as I had hoped. So for May I have decided i’m going to be more organised with my blog and take it a bit more seriously.
In order to be more organised I created a little time table sort of thing with a to do list. Here i’m going to stick on my post ideas and then put them under the relevant day. This is stuck onto my wall as I thought it would help to motivate me and help me to be a bit more prepared for my posts. You might notice that there is only Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on the list – and yes, I do know there is four days I have missed off – but my plan is to post every day at the start of the week. And if I happen to miss a day then it will be posted on a different day when I have some spare time so that I will be posting 3 times per week.
I also have a rather sad obsession with Paperchase. I have no idea why fancy paper and overly priced notebooks excite me but hey ho I just could not resist and had to buy it. Unlike the majority of my notepads that are sat in my drawer because I am too scared to use them, I put my pretty pink one to good use. I use it to plan my weekly posts, any other ideas, and to record things such as my monthly followers or stick in any lovely comments I might get so that I can look back through and smile (so feel free to leave a nice comment for my book hahaha). I also picked up a pack of lined cards from Asda and use those to take down any other notes or to plan out things scruffily before I put them in my notebook – I think I might have a tiny bit of OCD when it comes to notebooks, woops.
So yes, theres my little rambly post of the month as its rather late as I type this and I seem to have babbled on about nothing for a while, BUT you’ve now learned how to put your organisational skills to use for blogging. I will hopefully stick to this plan so I don’t let my blog fall behind again in May.
