Do you want to blog faster?

So, if you are like me, you blog because you love talking about books and no one in your house will listen to you any more! Okay, maybe your family still humors you, but regardless, you want to talk about books more! So, you start a blog and its awesome! Then you start realizing how much time you are spending on blogging. Its A LOT! So, here are a few of my tips that have made it easier for me to blog faster!





WordPress Users Blog Faster:

  1. Set up templates!! All my reviews follow the same format, so instead of adding the information and media every time, I set up a template! I put in the format I want, uploaded all the images I use for every review and then when its time to do a review, I have most of the work done! I can blog faster because I am not constantly stopping to add media or adjust spacing! I just type in my thoughts, add links to buy the books and and other info I want to include! Just look for “Easy Content Template” in plug ins!
    1. This worked so well I set up templates for other common weekly posts as well! Now I have a template for:
      1. Sunday Post
      2. Top Ten Tuesday
      3. Upcoming Releases
      4. Reviews
  2. Ultimate Book Blogger Plug in is worth every penny! Seriously, not only does it make organizing the book info super easy, it will create your review indexes for you! Keeping my review index updated was super time consuming when I was doing it myself. Every time I did a review, I would have to remember to go to my review index page and add the link. It was getting crazy! UBB does it for me and I can set up all kinds of different indexes: by author, by genre, by rating, and even a searchable index! Its awesome (check it out by clicking my Review Index tab above!) and I can blog faster now because the process is automated! (Also, it actually works correctly since I was always screwing it up!)

  1. CoSchedule is another paid plug in that I swear by! I was using JetPack’s publicize to automatically share a new blog post on FB and Twitter. However, it sort of stopped working and none of my posts were being shared! So, I began looking for another option and found CoSchedule! I love it because it does more than just publish to FB and Twitter. I can schedule MULTIPLE shares all in one place! So, I can schedule it to share a new post when it publishes on my blog, the next day, a week later, a month later and/or any custom day/time I want! It is super easy (you set up the schedule right on the blog post!) and it has never failed me! I really do love it and think its worth the money for sure!

Okay, those are a few of my tools to blog faster and make the process more enjoyable! Do you have some to share? Let me know!! Check out Book Bloggers Unite!

Next time I will share plug ins that rock and why you need them! (Also, plug ins you should AVOID and why they are bad!)
