How to Have Consistent Blogging Content

I’ve been blogging since September 2014. Since then, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. This post is targeted to fellow bloggers whose niche is books

 

Now many of you would know that bright colours, GIF reactions and reviewing popular YA books (i.e. Sarah J. Maas) roll in the larger page views. But not enough of these blogs emphasise consistency.

 

Utilise your queue/schedule feature.

This isn’t to say have quantity over quality. No way. Just work one day at a time, stacking up some brilliant, fun and funky posts to share with the world.

 

Besides book reviews, you probably post book discussions.

The best way to do that is through tags.

Or, in other words: Book Memes.

 

You can search for mass-posts that list endless ideas for tags. I love girlxoxo’s. Hers is a comprehensive resource that you can adapt to any subject.

I started using book memes almost a year ago (just by challenging myself, in which it turned into a fun habit that stops be ever having writers block!), and my views skyrocketed. People like to see listigrams (look at Buzzfeed) or suggested content. Bookworms strive to find new content and discover new stories all the time! That’s why it’s perfect for book blogging.

Recently, I’ve been following several ideas from Broke by Book’s masterpost. This is more if you want more of an essay format, which is great if you want to research into your posts instead of just babble.


 

This is just the start of fun ideas for blogging! I hope you enjoy these ideas for tips and tricks. Are you somebody who likes to queue blog posts beforehand, or freelance it a little?

  1. ooh! definitely starring that post. I spend too much time posting book reviews but i’m trying to work myself up to a post a week.

    I only got back into blogging in mid july (my old disaster blogs are gone)

    in july I used to do 2 posts a week (Thursday and sunday), and then it added Tuesday for Cover Geek (my one true love) and then a second day for reviews (Sat+sun) because I’m that crazy about posting reviews that people could just read on goodreads.

    I want more discussion posts but i’m afraid I won’t have enough for consistent weekly content (it would be Mondays) because Thursday is my misc day (mostly challenges & the scattered discussion)

    I want my blog to be more fun…but i’m not that fun of a person? lol. I just don’t like snarky reviews and stuff because although they make people laugh, I feel bad after writing them. i’m trying to build a list of 52 discussion topics though! then i’d add Monday in

    • There’s no such thing as too many book reviews, hahaha!

      I restarted blogging in July too. But I screened any super-bad posts and deleted the evidence hahaha.

      As long as you enjoy your blogging, there should be no pressure for consistency. Really, don’t feel you need to make a batch of mediocre posts when you have something you’d rather delve into on a fortnightly basis. As for topics, I highly suggest the Broke by Books’ source I linked to in this post.

      What I did was read every idea, and allocate it a day. Later on, I would focus writing all the ideas that were for eg. Tuesdays, and schedule/queue them. Day by day, and eventually they added up! Toodah– September done.

      You’re super fun– didn’t you get my email omg? 😦 I sent you one a few days ago saying your my favourite person/blogger I’ve stumbled upon on the web.

      Frankly, I enjoy snarky reviews. As long as they’re justified and aren’t problematic (ie have an underlying discriminatory message). Plus, gifs always brighten the mood.

      Best of luck with your 52 ideas, I know you can do it 😀 😀 😀

      • oh my god what?! you’re so sweet! I love reading your blog posts and interacting with you <333 checking my email rn — I didn't get one! I checked my spam and everything, searched up cal too! (I obsessively check my email because edelweiss gives me so much grief with waiting) (my email is tinhovercarinice@gmail.com ;))

        I personally like to be consistent because i'm picky like that and it helps me read more books. mild pressure is good for me. super pressure is ASFLJSKLJ

        but I honestly like posting a lot because then I can do everything I want to. I have reviews stacked up around a month ahead 🙈 because I know i'll fall into a slump eventually haha

        I enjoy reading snarky reviews but whenever I write them I delete all the snark because I feel bad cause writing is hard (@me haven't touched my doc since august)

        and i'll definitely try that! I skimmed it and saw so many great things that I couldn't write them all down so now I have to go and plan out a new day of the week (yay!)
