Let’s Talk Bookish: What is your back up plan for posting?

Hello, and happy Friday! Today I had two tests in school, which was kind of stressful, but after school I had my drivers permit test, and I passed!! I was really nervous about it, but I passed and now I can learn to drive! I’m really really excited about that.

Anyways, onto today’s Let’s Talk Bookish topic! This week, I’m going to be talking all about my back up plans for posting.

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly discussion post created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and is hosted by Rukky and Dani @ A Literary Lion! This week’s topic is what is your back up plan for posting!!

There are just some days when you completely forget to prepare a post beforehand. In those instances, is there a specific kind of post you quickly throw together to stay on schedule?

I don’t usually put together posts before posting them: My system is pretty much that at the beginning of every month, I put together a list of the blog posts I want to write, as well as the dates, and I go from there!

I try to post Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and sometimes Sunday, because except for Monday, those days I don’t have dance and end up having more time in the evenings to write posts.

But there are some days that I end up having to wait for the very last minute, and I’d have to say that personally, the posts that are easiest and fastest for me to put together on those days are Let’s Talk Bookish posts like this one, or WWW Wednesdays, my weekly reading updates.

Do you just miss the day and move on?

Some days, I’ve planned to post, or might even start writing a post, and then just won’t be able to finish it. This does happen a fair amount, but it always makes me feel bad that I wasn’t able to get a post out during the day.

But yeah, I definitely do that sometimes do. If I just don’t end up having enough time to post, or really have no motivation to post, then I’ll skip a day.

I rarely completely leave behind posts. Even if something might take me a few months to completely finish, I’ll still most likely circle back at some point and finish the post.

If you can’t come up with any new ideas for posts, what do you usually end up recycling?

I recycle post ideas a lot, mainly looking at old things I’ve done and doing from there. I do a lot of WWW Wednesday reading updates, and recently started back up again with them after taking a few months off. I don’t know if this qualifies as recycling in the way the question was asked, but that’s what I do that I think best fits the term “recycling post ideas” since I do a lot of similar reading updates every week!

Wrapping this up…

This post ended up being really, really short, but I guess I just didn’t have a huge amount of stuff to say!! I hope you liked reading it nonetheless, and I’d love to hear your blogging back up plans, if you have them!

Do you have a back up plan for posting? Are there days of the week that you usually post on? What posts are easiest for you to write? Chat with me in the comments below!

  1. Ah congratulations on your driver’s test, that’s so great!! 🙂
    I admire the fact that you put together some blog posts fairly quickly, I could never do that. It always takes me like, 3 hours at the very least to write a blog post, so if I’m missing something or just don’t have enough time to put it together… well, I have nothing and that’s all haha.

    1. Thank you so much!! Driving is fun, but kind of terrifying too 😂😂
      Some blog posts I write (like this one haha) I put together rather quickly mostly because I often don’t have enough time to spend hours on a post, with school and everything else I have going on!!
      Reviews usually take me no less than two hours though, and my anticipated releases posts take even more time, since they have so much formatting to do in addition to the writing!! (WordPress also isn’t any help on that front 😅)
      It’s always interesting to hear how different everyone’s systems for blogging are, since there are so many different ways people do things!
