Lifestyle: How We Organise Our Blog Schedule

As you should all be fully aware of by now, is that there are two people running this blog? (Oh gosh, I hope people knew that haha) Well, if you didn't, you learn something new everyday and so forth with this, we thought it would be nice to share some sort of insight on how we, as a couple, manage our blogging schedule and YouTube etc.

1. SET DAYS

As you may notice and we may or may not have said many times on Twitter - ever since moving in, we've decided to dedicate 3 MAIN posts weekly, which are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays - as normal do and don't do, sometimes we eat at home, have Domino's pizza and have ready made meals and let's be honest, no one cares about those, so if there was to ever be some days, weeks, we don't post out a meal post, homemade or eating out - we would still have live content being active on our blog!

Also. on alternate Sundays we upload a challenge video and every Monday we post a Vlog!

2. ALLOCATE

In order to keep the duties fair between us, we have agreed that James does Tuesday post, Jessica does Thursday posts and we will alternate Sunday posts (as Sunday posts are Date Night posts), when it comes down to the day to day food/lifestyle posts - we try to make it as fair as possible, but I'd be lying if I didn't say James is the one who does most of it lately.

Although, some may argue that, I, Jessica do most of the social media, but every now and then, James leaves his mark. So all is fair right?

In regards to YouTube, this just fell into the way it did - James edits the Vlogs and I, edit the challenge videos!

3. CALENDAR/APP

From when we was living two hours apart, I found this calendar couple app (laugh all you like, jokes on you, we're so organised haha) well anyway, which we used to add in our daily schedule, so we would always know what each other is doing, for trust and just simple acknowledgement as we are both busy people. So, now living together, it only seemed right to use this for our blogging schedule, so even when we are apart, we both know our duties, for what date and for what time, and of course what it would be about (+ our regular daily schedule)

4. ORGANISE 

Well, this actually falls into the previous section, by using the app above, as well as being able to check the schedule on demand and set reminders for uploads and publishing, we are also able to organise when we have time to write posts and film our videos and how much time we have left to edit etc.

Not sure by how you've taken this post or if you know me personally, you may or may not be surprised that we have our blogging schedule schedule sorted for the rest of the year, currently have 11 posts scheduled (#FBbloggerseries) including this weeks posts and 5 in drafts and more plans (that inevitably will be blogged) in the making!

We love what we do and as much work as it is, we love it so much, as much as I love doing the planning for it. We always want to improve and give you what you'd want to see.

  2. I tried setting up a blog with a friend a few years ago, but we didn't even make it past the first post as we just weren't organised enough - if only we'd had this post to help us out!

  3. I LOVE this post! It's so interesting to see how people stay organised. I've really been meaning to start pre-planning my posts but I'm never motivated enough! Hopefully soon I'll find the boost.

    I love the app, too! Me and my BF were trying to find an app for ages to plan around each other and ended up going with Google Calendar. Glad to know we aren't the only ones!

    1. Yay, we're glad! I'm an organised freak and it just reflects on the other half and our blog now haha - well we all work differently, you'll find your way soon!

      Ah yeah, this app, if you pay for the extras, it would also sync your google calendars too - it's nice to know theres other out there who do it too haha

  4. Maaaan... I need to get a boyfriend to help me run my blog. It sounds like it's great to have a partner to help run things, but I think it works so well because you two are so compatible. lol This was a good read to understand some background. XOXO

  6. I loved this. It's lovely seeing a couple work a long so well with one another. My partner helps me with my outfit photographs, and sometimes when he wants I would feature his photography on my blog. My blog is solo of course, but I really want to create a food blog with him because we are both just so into it. And after reading you guys blog posts its lovely! So incase we do, create a blog. This posts will definitely come in handy. Hopefully.

  7. I'm loving your organisational skills! I wish I could keep to my blogging schedule – and I'm slightly jealous of you being a blogging couple! Would it be too much to ask of The One that they're into blogging as well..? :p xx

  8. Our blog is shared too - between me and my twin sister. As we get on so well posts are not really an issue; on most posts we both have an input, with one doing the writing and the other doing the photography. Yet other posts, just one of us does. I really enjoy blog sharing, it makes the concept so much more fun and exciting I think, as you can work on different things at different times. Thanks for sharing your experiences and organisation xx
