Disclosure: This post does have affiliate links in it, however I love the program and thought you might like it too.
In the last few months I would log in here and check out my dashboard only to scowl. Why could I no longer write? How could I let my blog go from what was once a PR6 to nothing. I loved blogging, I loved telling my readers about myself, the kids and all our experiences. What had changed? Scrolling for comments in the spam section of wordpress in hopes that there was one or two that slid through into spam because it would mean at least one person was reading. Basically I was ready to give up. I saw in the MomDot forums that everyone was using a new program so I decided to give blogging one last chance. For the past few weeks I have been using CoSchedule to share my links with my social media sites. I intended only for it to be used for social media sharing but the funny thing is it also got me to blog more. I believe (almost) every single day of October I actually put up a blog post.
The beauty is you get to use the program for two weeks to really test it out. Make sure to fully test all the features while you can to see how much use you can get out of it. You are able to hook up just about every social media function you are in to it so it will automatically send them out for you even if you aren’t home, once you have programmed it. The first day I sat down and decided to check out the schedule just to see what it was. The editorial calendar was great, in fact I planned out every day and saved them all in draft mode. When I logged into wordpress later I would discuss everything I had done on the application (Coschedule) was now there, all I had to do was go in and write everything up and save. When I logged back into the application I was now able to pick a time I wanted them all to publish. Each day that I had something scheduled I posted most for 7 am, I did try a few 5 am ones too.
