Other Reasons for Editorial Calendars
I’ve previously written in a number of blogs about how an editorial calendar can help you stay on track when building a blog full of great content, whether for your business or otherwise. Usually, I’ve looked at the use of an editorial calendar from a mostly self-centric view, about how it helps writers, editors and even ad sales reps. But Maki of DoshDosh has an excellent (as always) article about increasing your readership with an editorial calendar. In the article, he points out that having somewhat predictable content can create anticipation in your readers and thus get them to subscribe. Maki also lays out a long list of the kind of content you can produce.
Being a Better Blogger
Of course, just having an editorial calendar or a general plan isn’t sufficient. Being a good blogger involves many factors. To wit, Nathania Johnson at Copyblogger offers a look at improvisational acting techniques that make you a better blogger.
Establishing Your Authority, Spread Your Ideas
While you build your skills as a better blogger, you also establish your authority with your excellent content. Chris Garrett offers some tips for how to spread your great ideas and knowledge through blogging.
Sayonnara and So Long
By the way, this will be my last post at Bootstrapper. It’s been simultaneously fun and challenging by degrees. However, my career destiny appears to lie in another type of writing and creating, and I need to move along the closest path for once, after seventeen years of putting off the filmmaking goal. But all those big resource lists written by the Bootstrapper other writers will continue to appear here, as far as I know.
