Its that time of the month.
No, I don’t mean that time of the month. Its that time of the month when I go on a bit of a lull. Productivity seems to be at its lowest, and the lazy girl that’s hidden not so deep down inside of me, is doing her best to ensure my backside doesn’t leave the sofa unless completely necessary (stocking up on Pringles). So here I am trying to write a post about being productive when I’m feeling my uttermost unproductive. It makes total sense,… Anyway, lets crack on before my brain realises that its no longer staring at pointless stuff on my phone and goes into retreat,
For the past few weeks, I’ve been swamped with other life commitments (being a lazy cow counts as commitments, yes?), and it’s made me be a bit of a fail at keeping all my social media up to date. Which wouldn’t have happened if I managed to keep up with my intentions of planning ahead. IE taking bulk pictures when the lightings good, actually typing up the blog posts I had brainstormed instead of scrolling through Netflix, looking for things I may want to watch.
Netflix is actually becoming a part-time job.
Check that Inbox, spam box, and junk mail.
Delete all emails from Misguided sales and offers of Russian brides. It’s such a major ball ache I know, but once you’ve done it and you get that little congratulation on a clean inbox notification from Hotmail, you should be feeling pretty smug with yourself.
For bonus points, actually, unsubscribe from all unwanted mail that ends up in your inbox. Or use a website like Unroll Me to do it for you, saving yourself more time for a Netflix scroll.
Hit Up GOOGLE ANALYTICS
Spend a little time playing around with Google’s analytics and find out what posts are performing the best and how users are finding you. I know a majority of you guys come in off of Twitter, so I tend to spend most of my time on that platform. By having a little nose around, you can find out exactly what it is your readers want from you, giving you (hopefully) more inspiration for posts.
SCHEDULE SOCIAL MEDIA
I have massive respect for the people that manage to organically tweet, gram and facebook their content every day.
How do you do it?!
True to my lazy girl style I schedule my social media content, otherwise, truth be told, I would forget.
There are many a websites that will help you to schedule these channels but I use Buffer as it has a simple website design that’s pretty self-explanatory.
By using Buffer I can also see what tweets are getting the most clicks, which is another great way to know what posts are performing well, and you guessed it, more inspo!
If all else fails get yourself involved in a Twitter chat. I always feel more motivated and inspired after coming away from a Twitter chat. Its usually just the kick up the lazy bum that’s needed.
