Everything you Think is Wrong Day

I thought it would be interesting this year to highlight some of the unique and lesser known holidays. This Wednesday, March 15, 2017, is Everything you Think is Wrong Day. I felt this holiday was perfectly fitting for how I’ve been feeling about this month. confused-880735_640Despite all of my research and studying about blogging and marketing over the past two years I’m starting to feel like everything I thought was wrong. I’m overwhelmed with the amount of work it is taking to get my blog fully set up. There’s so much to do in order to make sure everything is organized and in it’s proper place. I am honestly starting to wonder why I didn’t do so much of this stuff sooner. In order to help combat the crazy that is my brain I have a ton of lists that I am working with and creating. Basically when you find yourself with too many thoughts that everything you are thinking is wrong, the best thing to do is make a list. Here’s a list of the lists I am currently working with or in the process of building. (Yes I have a list for my lists, try saying that five times fast.)

First, I have a March to do list, with all the things I need to accomplish this month to optimize and improve my blog.

Lists I am making or have already made this month:

Niche Key words for Google Alerts

Posts located under each category

Posts under each tagto-do-734587_640

List of tags used

List of articles by name that I have written

List of most popular articles by month (Top 5)

List of Posts to be used via Social Media (from across the web)

List of memes, quotes, gifs, videos to be used via social media

Make a list of what articles are linked to other articles i.e X article has a link for articles A, B, and C

Make a list of blogs I follow

Make a wish list of products for the business

Create a dump folder for stock images to use on blog and a separate for social media memes/motivational posts

Make a list of promotional activities for each social networking platform

Make a list of items to be printed

Make a list of rooms to declutter

I have also created lists for monthly, weekly, and daily to do’s for the blog and my household responsibilities. I love lists, and organizing my to do’s. To help keep my mind and work organized I set up a whole new system in the form of three poster boards and post-it’s. I stole the idea from one of my favorite bloggers Suzi from Start a Mom Blog. post-it-notes-1284667_640Her Super Simple Weekly Schedule helps me keep track of my events, housekeeping, and gives me some basic ideas of what’s going on with the blog that day. I am also using her Blog Vision Board and Editorial Calendar. The Editorial Calendar could also be used for a monthly schedule if you are not running a blog or if you just want to keep track of your monthly basics.
