Blogging has quickly become one of the hottest trends. If your life isn’t documented on social media or a personal blog, then you are missing out.
Many people love blogging so much that they have even made it their full-time job.
If that’s your case, and you have increased the number of blogs you do, keep reading!
Whether your blogs are personal, professional, or written for clients, here are 10 tips for managing multiple blogs at once.
1. Prioritize before the Week Begins
Don’t overwhelm yourself by taking on more you than you can handle. One of the best first steps to managing multiple blogs is to spend about 15 minutes at the beginning of the week.
Make a plan for how you’re going to complete all of your blogs. Schedule an appropriate amount of time for each one. Your priorities likely start with your most popular blogs and trigger down to the lower traffic blogs.
2. Update Regularly
It’s no need to spend all week writing 15 articles for one blog. Create small, short blogs and publish them often.
When you’re trying to increase the traffic of each blog, small, frequent updates are better than one day updating a blog with so much new content.
Optimize your available hours so that you can allocate the right amount of time for each blog depending on what they need.
For example, if one blog requires one 2,000 article a week, ration out some time each day to write that post. Spend the remaining hours updating the blogs that need one 250 word article a day.
3. Schedule Blog Posts
Did you know that you can schedule your blog posts to go out when you want them to? No need to wait until the perfect window to sit down at your computer and click publish!
The ability to schedule posts allows you to rearrange your schedule to do all of your writing in the mornings, and then all of your manual updating or research in the afternoons.
Hoping back in forth from blog to blog is time-consuming. Plus, it makes it difficult to stay focused. Scheduling everything ahead will boost your productivity.
4. Add Pictures
Pictures take up space, they’re captivating, and they’re “worth a thousand words,” right?
Posts with lots of images are easier to write and more likely to go viral. If you’re updating several blogs a day, consider these short and effective post ideas.
5. Schedule Recurring Events
Do you always need to make a post on Wednesdays saying “On Wednesday, we wear pink”?
If so, write enough for a few weeks all at once and schedule them. This will save you time next Wednesday when you realize you have to make the same post again.
Even if you do a “How-To” post each Thursday, take them to write a few the first week of the month, and then schedule them for the month.
This will make the first week of the month busy. If it gives you peace of mind throughout the week, it’s well worth it!
6. Guest Posts
Don’t make the work for you harder than it needs to be. Guest posts from people who specialize in the blogs products are great and give you a break from writing. All you have to do is edit and then publish them.
Be selective about who you choose. Not everyone can write captivating content, no matter how specialized they are in the industry.
Your readers will enjoy reading content from someone other than you every once in a while. Give them refreshing content they seek. It’s a good way to keep your content varied and share new insights on your blog.
7. Use Forums for Ideas
Many bloggers will tell you that the hardest part of their job is figuring out what to write. Make this step easier for yourself and write what people want to hear.
There are many websites that have active forums where consumers ask questions and express their concerns. If you know what they need, you can provide the answers on your blog.
When you’re writing for a client who has very specific requirements, this can be a great way to get topic ideas. Why waste countless hours trying to come up with a brilliant topic? Everything you need is at your fingertips.
8. Allow For User Feedback
Many bloggers turn off the “comment here” part on their blog because they don’t want hate posts or a bunch of spam.
This makes sense for some blogs, but it also has its drawbacks. How are you supposed to know what readers want and how they react to your posts of you turn off the comments?
9. Practice Your Typing Skills
How fast can you type? You may have the juices flowing and be full of great ideas but just cannot write them fast enough.
10. Use the Same Blogging Platform
For easier access and control, it is recommended that you use the same blogging platform for all of your blogs. This way, you have all of the content in one place and can manage multiple channels at once.
You may not have control of the blogging platform that is used. If that’s the case, just remember which software it is and complete those blogs a different day.
Managing Multiple Blogs Takes Practice
Whether you were an editor prior to your blogging experience or not, it’s hard to manage multiple blogs. Neglecting to post on a blog at least once a week can seriously damage its success.
