I’m far from a Pro Blogger. But I did make a decision to blog at least once a week, which is not always easy. Then I stumbled across a blog that categorized a system that I was already implementing, only I didn’t realize there was name for it. A Blogging Bucket.
A blogging bucket consists of ADDing things:
The Assess Bucket
Place every idea you have about a future blog post in a folder on your computer or write it down in a notebook. The Assess Bucket is just to capture and assess the ideas.
The Decide Bucket
The Decide Bucket is like a calendar. Here you plan and schedule exactly what you’re going to do with your ideas.
The Do Bucket
Implement the ideas from the decide bucket. Here is where you get down to the business of actually writing and polishing your blog post.
When I procrastinate (which is most of the time), and the ticking clock pounds inside my head, I open my folder, assess an idea, make a decision, and then do it–just write the darn post.
If you have a system in place you’ll be more productive and you’ll enjoy the process.
Do you have a system in place?
