Last week, I joined my first #SassyBloggers Twitter chat (sponsored by Coconut-Lane.com), to talk all about Blog Planning. While I am a stickler for organisation, I have to be honest, I don’t really do much in the way of organising when it comes to my blog. Other than scheduling promotional tweets throughout the day, I’m a bit of a #lazyblogger.
I got to chatting with two girls in particular, Katie and Jess, as we bonded over our mutual rubbishness when it comes to blog planning. None of us keep to a regular schedule, and the idea of daily blogging was nothing but a pipe dream. Except, why should it be just a distant, intangible thing? It didn’t take us long before we encouraged each other to take up a daily blogging project, as we thought if we did it at the same time, we’d be able to provide motivation and be each other’s cheerleaders. Thus, #LazyBlogging was born.
The aim of this project is to inspire positivity and encouragement in regards to blogging and creating content. If you’re in the blogging community, you know that no one works harder than a blogger. With all the planing, writing, photo editing, tweeting, promoting… not to mention a lot of us have full time jobs or study, it’s a wonder we get any time to breathe. However, because we have so much going on, it can be easy to get discouraged or run out of steam. The #LazyBlogging Project was created to make a space for us that would motivate us to put more time into our blogs and the content we put into them.
Today, 1st August, is the first day of #LazyBlogging, where the three of us will be blogging every day. The way it works is that myself, Katie and Jess will take it in turns as to who will be posting each day, meaning that there will be a post from each of us every day for a month. We have set up a Twitter account where we will be retweeting our posts each day so that they are easy to find, so come find us @LazyBlogging.
I’m kicking things off tomorrow, then Katie (www.beautifulearful.blogspot.co.uk) will post on Wednesday, followed by Jess (www.almostchic.co.uk) on Thursday, and so on. Essentially, each of us will be posting every third day, and we will each be writing 10 posts for the month. It’s gonna be a challenge, but one I’m very much looking forward to!
If we have a successful month and manage to inspire others to stop being #lazybloggers, we’re even thinking of setting up a weekly #LazyBlogging Twitter chat, so be sure to let us know if that’s something you would be interested in!
Make sure to follow the girls and keep up with us throughout the month. Without further ado, let #LazyBlogging begin!
Have you ever tried a daily project? What was it?
