Currently listening to Davido – If I’ve been so busy lately and I realized today that I only published one post last week which is below my 3 posts a week plan and that had me feeling kinda inconsistent but I quickly snapped right out of it because sometimes you just gotta let life take its course. So in today’s post I’d be sharing with you how I’ve managed to stay consistent in one year three months of running this blog.Constantly Read And Seek Inspiration
This is my ultimate tip, there are already bloggers that interest me and have started blogging for years that I’m constantly on their blog seeking inspiration and learning more about this blogging thing. Read magazines relating to your blogging field whether online or in prints I promise you will have never running of creative juice. There is something to talk about everywhere, inspiration is just around you, all you gotta do is keep your eyes wide open.
Plan And Take Notes As Soon As Possible
Check dates, know when it’s Easter, when it’s independence and plan what you want to write about on those days, generally note significant days on the calendar and make plans. If an idea pops in your head, take note of the blog post title and if time permits start building the body of the post so you don’t forget and find yourself caught in a rut.
Shoot In Bulk
Whether I’m shooting outfits or flatlays I always do so in bulk, that way you won’t run out of content. When I’m meeting up with photographers, thanks to planning ahead like the previous point stated I already know what outfits I want to share on my blog for the month. If you follow this blog you’d realize I put up outfit posts once every week which means four outfit posts a month but when I go to shoot I go with over six outfits so incase I don’t get a photographer soon I still have spill over outfit posts to publish.
Have A Realistic Schedule
I post 3 times a week on my blog and I do so in sections, one outfit post on Mondays, one beauty or review related post on Wednesdays and one lifestyle or DIY post on Fridays. I chose this schedule because it’s something I can easily pull off, if I had decided to publish more outfit posts that would have been unrealistic for me because I don’t have a camera and can’t afford to pay one to be on stand at the moment. Having a schedule also helps you know what post you’re going to be working on next instead of being confused and end up not publishing anything.
What I Wore :

I hope with these few points I’ve been able to share the little I know about staying consistent and I hope this was a helpful post. Do have an awesome week.
