How (And Why) To Use An Editorial Calendar On Your Blog [PODCAST]

In this episode, David talks about editorial calendars, and why you may want to consider pre-planning your blog content for as much as 3 months in advance. In this show, we talk about multiple reasons why strategic planning of your content is far better than “flying by the seat of your pants” (which is what most bloggers do.). We also go over a 6-step process to brainstorm and develop your editorial calendar.

    Fantastic post! I am always at a lost of ideas for blogging and have not been consistent. I will be checking out editorial calendars for womens magazines. Very much related to my target market.

  • Hello,

    It was amazing i never thought this can work. But one thing i don’t understood what topic i can choose before 3 months. i mean blogger means you have to post a recent topic so that people may interest to read the article from your blog. If i am wrong then please reply me then i can follow your strategy.

    Thanks
