The two weeks are up. Blog Ahead is officially done. I am not displeased, but I don’t feel very accomplished either. I didn’t manage to complete all my goals. And I would have liked to have more posts done from July and August. But I guess you can’t have everything. So see below what I completed and what I did not complete.
Blog Ahead Goal
- Increase your scheduled posts by 15 – Completed
Total scheduled posts I should have at the end: 22
Total scheduled posts I have: 23
- Plan topics ahead until the end of July/August – Completed
I planned ahead until the end of August. I had to hold back to not plan any further but I figured that wouldn’t leave much room for new ideas that need to be done at a certain time.
- Schedule Top Ten Tuesday posts as far ahead as possible – Completed
I wish I had been able to get more top ten tuesday posts out of the way but there are only prompts until June 7th, last time I checked.
- Write out all topics/discussion posts if possible, but at least five (7/5) – Completed
This went reasonably well. I did two more than the minimum amount I wanted to do. I did not finish all the ones from my planning, but I’m not completely displeased with that.
- Fill in book tags I still have to do so I can easily plan these in when needed (2/4)
I did not manage to finish this one, unfortunately. I had a hard time focusing on the tags.
- Take bookish photos for all newly scheduled posts
I took photos for almost all posts that are now planned in with the exception of the last four I planned in I think. So I did not finish this, but I’m also not too far behind either. Hopefully there will be some sunny days these coming weeks so I can take those photos.
To be fair to myself, there were a lot of posts in my planning I had to skip like wrap ups, book hauls, Sunday Posts, but also the book shelf tour I’m planning on doing at the end of June. I want to take pictures at the start of June for that, but I still have to make some room for some books so I can’t really do much to plan in those posts. So at least I did do most of June’s posts that I could do and a few of July/August. Still I wish I could have done more. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can continue on blogging ahead so that I have most posts that can be ready for July and August.
How far ahead do you have scheduled posts usually?
