In essence an editorial calendar is a tool that keeps you, as a blogger, a season ahead. This is vital, as you need to be aware and be able to plan ahead for events, seasons, trends and holidays. Most pro bloggers will prepare well in advance for such notable dates. Your calendar allows you the opportunity to get ahead, be consistent and gain momentum, which will all help to drive traffic to your blog.
I think having an editorial calendar is such an important part of blogging and I literally couldn’t blog without mine. It is a professional way to work, strategically planning posts, rather than simply chucking posts out there and hoping some of them will stick.
Are you ready to start your editorial calendar?! If you already have one, which method works best for you?
