How I Keep My Blog Posts Organized

Stephanie Kamp Blog: How I Keep My Blog Posts Organized
Hey guys,

So this is probably going to be a quick post but I just wanted to share some info on how I stay organized with my blog. I am obsessed with being organized and I have the tendency to be a little OCD with certain things, you can just ask my family! They get a little annoyed with me sometimes when I freak out if something isn't perfect or exactly the way it should be. 

Anyways, the main way that I stay organized is by keeping notes on my phone. I currently have a really long list of ideas of blog posts that I want to write. I also have about 50 something draft posts on my blogger account that I still haven't written. Some of them I created about 1 or 2 years ago now so I've actually been going through them and deleting some of them. Sometimes I get inspiration for a post but then if I don't find time to write about it right then or there or at least within a day or two then I pretty much will never write about it. So I just delete the post and if inspiration strikes me again for the same topic later on then maybe I'll have time to sit down and write about it. 

But honestly, the Notes app on my phone is a life saver. I've started so many posts on that app whenever I didn't have my laptop around and then I just transfer it from the app to my blogger account so I can finish writing it or edit it and create the image. I started my long list of blog post ideas when I traveled to Germany. I mapped out all of the days that we were gone so I could keep track of everything, which is something that I usually do when we go on a trip but this time I just kept adding to the list. Sitting on a plane for 9 hours and then another 11 hours certainly gives you a long time to think of ideas for new posts.

Since I created this list, I pretty much add to it everyday or at least once a week. It really just depends on what I am doing and if it something gives me inspiration! Once I have the time to sit down and write the post then I will delete the idea off of my list. So yes this list is growing everyday but at the same time I'm deleting stuff as I am able to write it so it's not getting out of hand yet.

 I also like keeping this list and adding to it because it gives me time to write an idea down and then decided whether or not I really want to write about it. On Sunday, while sitting in church I was able to add two more ideas to this list. Now I know what you're thinking, why were you using your phone in church? My church actually uses the Bible app and so I pretty much always have my phone out and am taking notes on the sermon and switching back and forth between my notes pad and the Bible app.

When I first started my blog, I actually used to pre-write all of my blog posts in a notebook and then I would type them up on my computer. I definitely am not sure why I did this way. I think I was going through a journaling phase but who knows! I definitely don't think I will go back to that way but then again, never say never. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and learning a little bit more about me and how I blog. I have a couple more posts like this coming up soon so if you enjoyed this one be sure to check those ones out as well!

Talk to you soon!
XO, Steph
