Learn How to Be a Consistent Blogger When You Join This Challenge
Ever struggled with consistency?
If you have been struggling to be a consistent blogger, then you’ll be able to relate to these struggles:
You don’t know what to post, so you end up feeling frustrated.
You have no publishing schedule, i.e. you post whenever you feel like it so when you do post, you don’t get the results you’re hoping for.
You don’t know where to source high quality or pretty photos to go with your blog post, so you end up not posting it.
You have no strategy when it comes to posting, so you have an on-and-off-again relationship when it comes to posting consistency. Some weeks are great and others, you aren’t able to update at all.
These are some of the content creation mistakes that hurt your blog growth and hindering you from becoming a consistent blogger and content creator.
Too busy to read the whole post? Pin this for later!
Consistency was always a big struggle of mine, especially during the early days of blogging.
I’d be posting fine for a few weeks, and then life happens, and I get so busy that I miss out on posting regularly 1-2 weeks.
I would post again, and then the same cycle begins again.
I’d ghost on posting for a few weeks.
It was not pretty.
The Secret to Consistency
I’m sure you’ve also heard other bloggers, creators and creatives say any of the following:
“What helped me grow is consistency”.
“Consistency changed the game for me”.
“When I started being consistent, that’s when I saw massive results!”
Consistency makes a difference and plays a role in success.
While it’s fantastic that these bloggers and content creators are consistent, how the heck did they crack the consistency secret code?
And how can you be a consistent blogger and creator, too?
Want in on the secret?
The secret to consistency is planning ahead.
There’s no shortcut to it but to do the work and plan ahead.
When you’re just starting out, there’s a lot of advice online about posting frequently to get lots of blog views and to signal to Google that your blog is active.
The more you publish, the more opportunities for people to see your content.
However, pushing yourself to post 3-5 times a week or every day without a plan may lead to burning out.
As content creators, the content burnout is real.
It’s all about being strategic about what you post and when you post that is in alignment with what works for you and your body.
Or maybe you have no content strategy whatsoever.
You post whenever you “have the time” or “feel like it”.
You think to yourself that you know you need to post, but you have no idea what to post today.
And that won’t work if you want to truly grow your blog.

When you don’t know what to post, blogging feels like a challenge.
Back when I didn’t know what to post, I wouldn’t even try to write a post because I had major writer’s block.
And I kept thinking: what would people want to read from me anyway?
But what if you had a bank of content ideas and even planned out a month’s worth of content, wouldn’t that feel amazing?
Instead of feeling stuck on not knowing what to post, all you have to do now is to write the post because:
1) you have a bank of content ideas/topics
2) you know when you want to post each topic, so now the next thing you focus on is content creation
But how do you come up with these ideas?
I’ll be giving you some tips on how to do so in the 5 Days to Consistency Challenge.
Content creation then becomes easier and more exciting.
You don’t have to spend all that time overthinking what to post but actually get around to creating it and posting it.
Having a content bank of ideas or topics to post is one of the things that can help you become a consistent blogger and content creator.
But what else?

Here’s what you need to be consistent to grow your blog and social media platforms:
1. A plan

I couldn’t agree more — trying to be consistent with blog posting can be a real challenge. Life happens and when it does, blogging takes the backseat. (Even when it is a serious business venture, unfortunately) I have found this to be true for me, and I have failed miserably at posting on a regular schedule.
I’ve signed up for your course and look forward to learning how to overcome the roadblocks to showing up regularly. Like you, I do love having those content ideas on hand. I typically log them in my phone or on a piece of paper nearby. 🙂 You’re 100% right – that makes all the difference!
Thank you for sharing this great resource. I look forward to diving in! ♥ Much love and many blessings headed your way.
Yes I totally agree. It can take a backseat even if it’s perceived as a business already since life happens. One thing you can try is to stick to a schedule that’s not too stressful for you ex. posting every two weeks or even once a month. I’ve heard of some bloggers who have been able to post once a month but are still able to get traffic because that one post is super in-depth and SEO optimised.
Aw I’m glad to hear you signed up for the course. I really do hope you find it helpful and if you have any suggestions on what can be improved, I would love to know!
You’re welcome, Holly. Have a great week! ?
Thank you so much for this, i have signed up for the email course!
Can’t wait to get cracking on it x
You’re welcome, Claire! I hope you find it helpful 🙂
Consistency is probably my biggest struggle when it comes to blogging. There are so many blogging tasks that need to be kept up with on a regular basis that it can be overwhelming.
I try to multi-task to get more done but then spread myself too thin and don’t accomplish as much as I set out to. I know consistency is key to growth, but the struggle is real!
You’re so right though about needing to plan ahead of time to be consistent. Fail to plan, plan to fail! Gotta keep that in mind. Looking forward to the consistency challenge!
Consistency is something I struggled with for a long, long time. And yes, I couldn’t agree more! There are so many blogging tasks indeed that it does get overwhelming and it can feel like a never-ending to-do list. I hope you found the challenge helpful, Briana! 🙂
Ive been very bad at being consistent with my blog even though I have plans, 🙁 Maybe I just have to start strategizing my plans. Thanks for this eye opener
Aww it’s happened to content creators. You’re not alone! 🙂 What’s your biggest struggle when it comes to being consistent? 🙂
Hey Izzy, I am beginning to feel the difficulties of being a consistent blogger while juggling school. It’s proving to be more difficult than I thought! I hope that your email course helps, and thank goodness I signed up in time to start tomorrow. Can’t wait! 🙂
Hi Ming! So glad to have you part of the consistency challenge. And I do hope it’s helpful 😀
