Just the editorial calendar I needed to get serious about my content
I was interviewing a potential candidate for a job the other day and during the interview, he kept saying I’m a dabbler. And I was thinking, me too. I dabble in photography dabble in content writing, and even dabble in some web design… the list goes on. Then I looked up the definition of the word dabbler.
dab·bler noun -b(ə-)lər
: one that dabbles: as
a : one not deeply engaged in or concerned with something
Well, that’s NOT what I mean at all, and apparently NOT a word to use in an interview (mental note). I just happen to have several things that I’m really passionate about making it hard to focus on just one. However, I’m starting to focus more on writing again, truth be told I missed it.
However, my time is still really limited so I had to find a tool that would help me manage not only my blog posts but also a tool that will help me manage all my social channels and get the content dispersed throughout the day. Drafting a tweet twice a day, a Facebook post on my page, a pin on Pinterest, a post on Tumblr… well you get the point, it can be a bit challenging when you are working a full-time job. I’m sure pulling up Pinterest or Facebook during a meeting would break business meeting etiquette.
So luckily during my search and some help from fellow bloggers I found CoSchedule.
What is CoSchedule?
CoSchedule is a social media / editorial calendar for WordPress. Allowing you to schedule blog posts and social media in one unified drag and drop calendar all without having to login to another account, which means everything can be managed within the WordPress CMS. This is a huge time-saver for “spare-time” deficient people like me. I can now spend a few hours on the weekend drafting all of my posts and social content and plug them into WordPress. All the social publishing is handled by CoSchedule and the post is scheduled through WordPress.
dabbling experimenting with it for several weeks, but this is the first week I’ve really tested it out to its full potential. And I’m loving it! I’m organized and efficient. And my traffic has doubled daily. I’m more motivated to keep on publishing.
- Schedule your social media messages while you write your blog post – tell me this doesn’t save you time and I’ll show you a purple pig.
- The combined drag-and-drop calendar lets you manage your blog posts and social content all in one place – no more toggling through a bunch of tabs in your browser
- Works great with a team of collaborators – keep your team in the know by reminding them of deadlines and tasks.
It does all of that and doesn’t slow down your WordPress install! You don’t have to take my word for it just check out the website, read the testimonials and don’t forget to watch their handy-dandy overview video.
