Things You Can Do For Your Blog If You Don’t Want To Write

Things You Can Do For Your Blog If You Don't Want To Write

Now let’s be honest, you don’t always want to write, it can get a bit much, however there are things that you can do besides writing! I know from personal experience that we can get very caught up in writing because it is such a huge part of blogging. Never fear, there is always lots of things that you can do outside of blog posts. Ready for this? Then let’s go!

Post Prep

I find this such an important step for me because I find it helps me to get everything done! I want to make sure that I have a title, what the post is going to be about and how I am going to set it out with what type of photo I’m going to have. That way when it comes to finally writing a post you won’t have too much work to do because you’ve done all the ground work.

Update Old Photos

I love doing this because it personally shows me how far I have come on my journey, especially with my photography. You can do a variety of different things, for example edit and filter old photos or re stage the photos!

Work On Your Target Audience

This is something that is so important because you need to know who you are actually writing to on a weekly basis. I look at who has been reading my blog through Google Analytics, the age demographic, where they’re from, their interests & everything. Your target audience is so important to you, please don’t ever forget it!

Check Broken Links

This is so damn important, especially with your domain authority! If you’ve just changed over to your domain then this is really important because when I did a few of my links actually got broken, not intentionally, however it does happen on the odd occasion.

Schedule Tweets

I notice a massive difference in my blog views when I have actually taken the time to schedule tweets, I think it is so important in general to do this. However it does take a bit of time, I personally use TweetDeck as it is free and I’ve never actually had any problems with them!

Work On Social Media 

Pinterest is something that I am still getting the hang of, however I am doing it! Sort of. Anyway, you can do this in a variety of different ways, especially with Twitter, Twitter is a fabulous source of views for me, however it does take a lot of work. You want to make sure that your feed isn’t saturated with blog links because it makes it literally unreadable and people won’t want to click. YOU WANT THEM TO CLICK ON YOUR BLOG! 

Improve Something

There are lots of things that you can do and improve, for example if you’re not clear on things like SEO or you want to brush up on your photography then there is something you can do. There are so many different skills that you use when you’re blogging brushing up on some skills can really help!

What are things that you do for your blog when you don’t want to write? Leave your response in the comments!

    This is such a great post! Sometimes I’m not always in the mood to write but still want to work on my blog – it usually ends with post prep but I think I might work on my SEO knowledge next time! Xx

      Definitely! Do it my lovely! Sometimes you need to do something different, push yourself, we all need to know something about SEO at some point!💜

    I love this post! Reminding me to do so many things that I should probably do for my blog. It’s so easy to get bumed down by writing blog posts sometimes so it’s nice to have ideas of what else can be done.

      I’m the same my lovely, honestly, especially when the writing aspect is a huge part of blogging, just don’t get bummed out by everything you’ve got this!💜

    I needed to read this post, thanks, sometimes I really get myself into a slump and don’t want to write up a post, but then regret it later…

      I totally agree, there are so many aspects of blogging! I sometimes forget that there are so many aspects of blogging besides writing 💜

    I found this post really helpful! I find when I am in the sort of mood when I don’t want to write, planning definitely makes all the difference and I also really enjoy scheduling my tweets.

    Loved your post 🙂

    Such an original and helpful post! With my fatigue and brain fog I struggle to write a lot but still have that craving for being active on my blog.

    Love this!

    It can definitely be hard to feel motivated when you’re creating post after post, and I was actually doing one of your points – touching up some of my old photos, just yesterday! I like to be getting on with other things blog-related every once in a while as it’s a nice distraction, and this list a good source of inspiration for that.

    Like you, I’m also sort-of getting the hang of Pinterest (well, I’m using it — does that count?). Hope it goes well for you! I’ve heard Pinterest can actually be a really good source of traffic.

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading this,

    These tips are super helpful! I could really benefit from utilising this advice much more to my blog. Especially updating old photos, whilst I do enjoy seeing how far my photographs have come, there is some that I look at and think wtf was I thinking! haha, so definitely need to sort those out. And to answer your question at the end, the only thing I tend to do when I don’t want to write is read other blogs and comment on them haha 😀
