Interestingly, this is Tsoniki and my tenth year blogging. I had websites since 2004, but my very first blog post was published in February 6, 2005. Regardless of the fact that we may be #digitaldinosaurs, there are always new tips, tools and resources available to make our blogging process easier or faster.
Do you have a routine for writing your actual post? Peck it out in MS Word, Notepad or Google Docs?
If you type in MS Word, you will find that you’re pasting unwanted formatting commands into your WordPress “Add New Post” Text area box, when you copy-paste your content into the latter.
Some people are fine with typing in a plain text editor such as Notepad – but others like to see what the finished post is going to look like before they import it.
My editor and I use Google Docs for article collaboration, but we’re transitioning over to Content Cloud since my partner Heidi and her editor love it so much. A blog task management system like Content Cloud is really helpful because because Heidi and I each have our own editor (though we both write or suggest articles for both blogs.) We also share an assistant, a developer, a designer and two social media assistants. That’s a lot of people and work to track to keep Blogger Babes running efficiently.
A good task management system can help you streamline your production process to maximize your time and effort while minimizing stress for your team.
