About This Class

Have you ever made an editorial plan, only to fall behind and stop using it a few weeks later?
Are you looking for a plan of action with your blog that will allow for those bursts of inspiration but also support you when you don't have time to sit down and write (or just don't want to)?
Do you want to look ahead for the future of your blog but feel like anytime you do, it hinders your creative spark?

Having an editorial calendar is an essential part of running a blog, but from a writer's perspective it's sort of a drag. It sounds so much sexier to sit down and furiously type something out in a couple hours than to plan posts in advance. So how can you plan out your blog posts and run things properly while also keeping that fire burning?

The answer is not merely an editorial calendar, but an editorial plan - one that works for you and not the other way around. This is so much more than looking at your schedule and randomly assigning some posts to certain days. In this course, you'll learn how to lay the foundation for a solid, successful 3 months of blogging ahead, which starts with looking at your current life and habits, examining the factors that affect your blog, and diving deep into balancing what your readers want and need with what you feel passionate about, too.

This course will go through practical advice to achieve a blog you can plan and be proud of while still allowing for flexibility and the little things in life. I'll even show you how I use this plan myself, so you'll not only get all the info but you'll get to see me put it into action in a task and calendar list.

If you have a clear vision for your blog and a good grasp on who your ideal reader is, this class is perfect for you. Access to Google Analytics is recommended, but not required. Otherwise, come prepared to take notes and do some serious, honest examination to create an editorial plan you'll look forward to incorporating into your blog, every day.
