How Do You Blog so Often? Tips + Tricks | for Photographers

For-Photographers_0738-1024x691

Today friends, I introduce you to my favorite binder of all time.  Here rests my lovely and wonderful blogging calendar.  Every month, at the beginning of the month, I fill out one of these bad boys with all the shoots that I am going to blogging.  Then I fill in the column for Mondays with “Monday’s Mash-up” and the rest of the days in between I post some of my series!  Sometimes its “Tricks and Tips” or sometimes its “Things I Love” posts.  This is how I go through and create content that goes on the blog!

Last year around this time when everything was slowing down, I was having a terrible time trying to come up with ideas on how to blog!  So now, I’ve been keeping a random notebook full of ideas that are stocked up for when the winter months take their place and shooting slows down!  For those of you who haven’t had a notebook going all year long… start it now!  It’s great to look at when you’re trying to fill in your monthly blogging calendar!

Tip number three of today, make series!  “Monday’s Mash-up” is a series that I do every single Monday so that I know ahead of time that that’s something I have to blog about!  Series make it easy!  I hope this was helpful!! As usual, if you have anymore questions, make sure to email me at lauren@laurenrswann.com!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.
