    I just started out blogging in April and scheduling my posts in advance is something I struggle with! So thank you for going in depth about this!

    Great post Megan! These are all the same things I tell my clients. Isn’t it awesome to get all those topics down on paper in one sitting! Huge relief and saves so much time!

    Yaaass! Since having my third little one I have been so disorganized and abandoned my editorial calendar. This will be the perfect refresh to get started again. Especially love the define topics for each day – that’s clutch for me! Thanks for sharing Megan!

    Great post Megan! It’s so true how crucial blogging is in our creative world, especially if you want to build an audience and establish trust. It’s something I am currently working on revamping!

    65 posts – wow, I’m impressed! I’m going to have to try this. My “stick a finger in the air to choose a topic” approach, and attitude of “maybe I’ll finish it in the morning” just mean I’m making it harder for myself.

    Great tips! I will surely be implementing these as I begin to build up my blog. I particularly like tip # 3, though how would you suggest I break topics down if I chose to post once a week.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Beautiful post Megan! I happened to be googling editorial calender’s for bloggers and came across several posts with great ideas. I followed your link and am very happy with the wealth of information shared. I was literally sitting here going nuts because I knew I needed a better way to schedule my blog posts and put my ideas down other than on tons of notebooks and loose scratch paper. I’m a new blogger as well and still in the process of finding my “thang.” šŸ˜‰ Thanks again!

    I absolutely love this and am going to try it rather than having a written calendar down and messing it up everytime I need to change something or switch things around. THANK YOU
