Staying Organized ♥ Balancing your Blog

Hello everyone! I've been posting a lot more lately and am honestly loving it! It feels so good to just sit down and write, but no matter how much I love it my blog still comes in second. To what you ask? School, duh. It can definitely get hard to balance my school work and plans while still keeping up with my blog.
And my blog usually gets pushed to the back of my mind when I get busy. But I have promised myself that I'm going to try harder to post more often! Here are a few rules/tips I have given myself to stay organized:

♥ Keep a planner- Being in advanced classes I know what its like to feel totally stressed out and like you have no time for anything. When you're that frazzled its easy to forget things you need to do. Keep a planner to track your school work as well as jot down ideas for blog posts.

♥ Write ahead- A way that I keep track of posts and stay ahead of the game is by writing multiple posts at a time. I almost never just sit down and write up one blog posts. If you have multiple ideas, enough pictures and the time, write up a few blog posts and keep them as drafts. When you find yourself too busy, just publish a pre-written post

♥ Put school before your blog- As much as I love to write on here and spend my time reading other blogs, school is extremely important to me. Don't let yourself get distracted and held up. Always put school first, blog second.

♥ Don't stress yourself out- Your readers will understand if you don't post for a few days. Don't cancel plans or avoid responsibilities for a hobby.

Thank you for reading! Have a lovely day :)
