Blogging Made Easy – Schedule time to Write
With every business, there will be priorities that can not be overlooked.
Writing for your art blog is a job you will not want to take lightly.
It is essential for the growth of your art business to schedule time to write during the week.
Every art post you write and publish opens another door for your target audience to find you online.
Below are some strategies I use that help me keep my art blog up-to-date.
Blogging Made Easy – Be Prepared
One way to make the most of your writing time is to be prepared.
There is more to writing than just sitting in front of a computer and typing.
If you are proactive, you will reduce unnecessary stress and be more productive.
Avoid staring at a blank screen by scheduling time during the week to brainstorm topic ideas.
It only takes 5 or ten minutes to think of different topics to write about.
I use excel but you can use Google Spreadsheet, or even pen and paper to write down your ideas.
Before you know it you will have a list of topics that will take you years to write.
Below is a post I wrote that will help get your list started.

Blogging Made Easy – Brainstorming Ideas
Brainstorming topic ideas is when you dedicate a block of time to come up with blog post ideas.
You will always be prepared to write if you have a list of ideas ready in advance.
It is possible to write and publish a full blog post in twenty minutes if you know what topic you will be writing before you sit down.
During the time that you have dedicated to brainstorming topic ideas write down anything that comes to mind.
It does not mean that if you have something written down, you will have to write a post about it.
Your list is to prevent writer’s block.
The last thing you will want is to force an idea and just write something so you will have content to post.
Respect your reader’s time. Provide them with your best work.
There will be times you will be more motivated to write about a particular topic over another topic.
You might want to write about a new brand of paint you tried or what inspired you to create your last piece.
Your list is there to help you stay inspired.
You can pick and choose what you would like to write about that day.
As you read through your list, something will stand out and produce a spark.
When you are motivated words will just start to flow on the screen.
Keep your list in a place where you can easily access it.
Look at your list on a regular basis.
When it is time to write your post you will already have a good idea of what you will want to say.
Another great way to save time blogging is to have a folder of images for your blog posts.
Schedule time for finding images for your posts.
The more you can get done ahead of time, the less painful it will be during the writing process.
Dedicate a folder on your computer for the reference material that you have come across and a separate folder for images that you will want to use for your posts.
The more organized that you are, the more you will get done in a particular amount of time.
When you schedule a time to write for the week, you will want to think about when you will be the most productive.
Find a block of time when there will be little to no distractions.
The less time that you have to spend on writing, the more time you will have in the studio.
If you are proactive with your content marketing, you will be separating yourself from the crowd. You will always have fresh quality content available for your target audience and potential collectors. The more content you produce, the more ways people will be able to find you online.
