Other Blogging Activities For July

While many people are taking long breaks in July from their blogs and websites, I usually am not. That’s when you’ll find me doing some key blogging activities, in prep for a busy Fall season.

July is a slow time for many things: from business (everybody is on vacation) to online traffic.

You will see a dip in blog traffic during this time in most cases unless your site is about traffic, outdoor activities and parenting and kid activities.

The first thing to do is to NOT PANIC.

This is the perfect time to do some “blog cleaning”.

  • Update your old blog posts including SEO
  • Update old Pinterest images on your posts with fresh ones
  • Design and schedule Pinterest images for the next 2 to 3 months – use my free Pinterest templates to help design them faster!

I can go on and on with the blog “housekeeping” activities list.

Once Fall bucket list season arrives, you’ll be too busy with other things. Make July a time to get yourself organized and ready for the Fall season.

Because you know, people will be indoors more as the chillier weather sets in. They’ll be looking for things to do during shorter days and cooler nights.

So aside from writing some fabulous July-themed blog posts, look to do some work to get ahead.

Here are free Pinterest templates to help you design fresh Pinterest pins for your posts!
