Summer Editorial Calendar Round-Up: Choosing the Right Calendar/Planner

Welcome to my sort of new feature, Reblog Thursdays. It may remind you of my recent “Reblog Tuesdays” but I am tabling that for now.

Let me explain…

As an adjunct university lecturer, I don’t teach in the summer! These next three months are wide open for me to get busy writing my new book “No Excuses Fitness,” which I have finally started.

So, less blogging, more book writing.

I plan to reblog some of my older, popular posts that will be of interest to folks, especially to newer readers. I also find others blogs and will reblog those as well. Of course, I will continue to contribute every Friday to the WordPress weekly photo challenge.

Please enjoy this post from last July 2016.

Summer editorial calendar round-up. Choosing the right calendar/planner

The doldrums of Summer are here and perhaps your blog is feeling the effects. I don’t know about you, but my blogging experience has proven that summer can be a slow season for bloggers. Recently I have read a few posts on how bloggers can enjoy their summers while still maintaining a minimum blogging presence.

One way to accomplish this without losing all your hard-earned followers and readers, is to take this time to critically examine your current editorial calendar.

And what if you do not have one? At the bottom of this post, I will leave a few links to resources you can use now.

Choosing the Right Calendar for your Blogging (or Writing) Needs

While creating this post, I googled “editorial calendars.” Yes, the hits are huge! I wrote a post last summer “What’s On my Editorial Calendar” and in re-reading it, I realized how much…

  2. Terri what a great idea to re-publish some favourite posts Terri I’m doing that as well. I try to plan a calendar and then wonder sometimes if I’ve overplanned and are too far ahead. Still I like to be organized. I also like to jot down ideas in notebooks. Thanks for the reminder to revisit how I plan and I’m looking forward to your book which is right up my alley! Have a great summer!

  3. Oh my, you had me at “planner” Terri. I love calendars! The old fashion ones that you can check things off your list. I have one Day Planner that I use for everything whether it’s blogging, word count, tracking my workouts, laundry, appointments…you name it. Thanks for reposting!

  4. I was just thinking about creating a blog post planner… not that I’d stick to it, but it would help me remember topics that I want to write about, and ones I’d like to re-post while I’m away on various adventures. I’m excited to hear about your new book – it sounds like the perfect topic for you to tackle.

    • With my hard cover planner, I have to thumb through occasionally to look for past ideas I had written down! And thanks for your encouragement, Janis! I have actually written 1500 words in two days this week!

  5. Hi Terri. I just bought my new day planner last week. Another thing that is important to me is the cover. I bought one that not only had all of the sections I wanted, but a beautiful cover that spoke to me.
    Good luck with you new book.


  6. Good ideas Terri. Thanks for sharing. Digging out old posts and revamping is always good, especially for new followers who weren’t around to see them originally. 🙂
