Ways to organize your blog post
Like our life, our blog also needs to be organized to work efficiently.
Writing a blog is like any other work, which can be done efficiently if you have things organized. Like any other work, a blog is also a collection of several things, including ideas, thoughts, timeline, photos, etc. Each of these needs to be at its appropriate places to make the most significant impact. It is straightforward to point out an unorganized blog, as it will reflect in its writing. The biggest flaw that will find in a cluttered blog is its structure. It usually doesn’t have a definite start and end. Another drawback that can be found is in the angle of the story or idea, it’s vague, and the purpose or the real message behind the blog is usually unclear. So, to make sure your blog doesn’t contain these flaws and to transmit your ideas and thoughts clearly, your blog needs to be organized. And to maintain an organized blog, these practices will be helpful for you.
Make a planner
Whether you use a software program, online service, or just plain old pen and paper, try to pen down all your ideas in one place. It can be an invaluable tool for you during blog writing. Break down your mind map into three major categories: Ideas, In-Progress, and Published. You will keep unique ideas you’d like to cover on your blog, related materials to the topic like a case study, experts review, photos, illustration, and blogs that have already been published on that specific topic. In this way, you will have a direction and will know what will be your next step.
Keeping your files in one place is very much important. Otherwise, there is always a chance of missing out on important information or document. So. it is recommended to have a folder separate for your blogging under which you keep additional separated folders for different types of documents. If you don’t find it much convenient, you can also use the go-anywhere app like Evernote or Pocket to store your links, graphics, and other tidbits that you find along the way for easy reference later.
Make a rough sketch of the blog.
It is essential to tell the story in a structured manner so that your blog can communicate with its reader. Therefore, it is advisable to draw or plan out a rough sketch of the blog before writing it. Then, take a pen or paper and write down the subheads and the essential points. It will ensure a flow to your story, and your chances will be low on missing out on information.
Maintain a schedule
For some, blogging is a passion, and for some, it’s just the profession; whatever may be your case, try to get into a schedule. It includes both publishing blogs and also about preparing for them. Make it a habit to find new ideas, find information, get resources, and publish blogs at intervals.
