With Christmas in our rear view mirror, thoughts of the New Year are in front of us and it’s typical to make all sorts of plans for how we want to be better. And there is nothing wrong with aiming for growth and improvement in our lives. One area that I have consistently struggled with is planning an editorial calendar for my blog. Rather than one that follows a strict schedule, I tend a blog by the seat of my pants kind of girl but I feel more relaxed when my posts have had ample time to ferment. One of the things the book Intentional Blogger (affiliate link) stresses as important is using an editorial calendar and it’s something I have worked on. I have even researched and printed off various types of calendars and tried using Google calendar all in the effort to find the right calendar fit for me.
The Benefits of Editorial Calendar
- Gives you structure: helps you have an organized lists of topics to discuss and allows for better planning around certain holidays or special events.
- Reduces Stress: planning ahead relieves the feeling of I’m not sure what to talk about.

BLOGGING MASTERMIND GROUP
I have had this idea for a blogging mastermind group brewing in the back of my mind ever since I read about it in Intentional Blogger and heard Amy Lynn Andrews mention it on her blog and heard about the Ladder Blogger mastermind group. If you are a fellow Christian blogger that would be interested in exploring the creation of a small community of like-minded individuals to help spur one another on in our blogging journey, feel free to contact me.
