Planning content for your blog

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

This is a great article by Scott Nesbitt, who posted about it on Google+. He’s right in that good blogging is actually pre-planned and pre-organized ahead of time. I don’t necessarily do the same steps as he does, but the principle is the same. If I have an idea and it’s timeless versus timely, I’ll start a draft in WordPress, add a title and a few key points that I want to highlights, and then I’ll save the draft for another time. I have a stash of article ideas waiting to be written if I run out of ideas or if I need to figure out how to pace myself for a series of articles (as I’m doing now for my coverage of my Adobe Day/Lavacon visit).  Some great tips on how to start thinking as a serious blogger.
