Plan Ahead For The Busy Fall Season

If your blog content plan is in need of updating, this is the perfect time to look at it!

Aside from writing some posts on August blog post ideas, start thinking about what posts you’ll be promoting in September and October.

These are some of the busiest months when it comes to blog traffic, with so many great topics people are searching for and reading.

The end of July and early August is when you should be:

  • Determining your September and October post schedule
  • Creating rough outlines for posts
  • Drafting first copies, researching and finding the right keywords
  • Formatting and finalizing a few posts so that they’re ready to go

Why all this planning?

Because the end of August and early September are busy, transition weeks that will have you too occupied to blog.
