Starting a blog or figuring out what to write about is sometimes too much to deal with. Here’s a super simple way to create a super simple editorial calendar for your photography blog.
- Find a favorite magazine or website.
For example, Nevada Magazine.
- Type the following in Google. Use the URL of your favorite site or magazine. Also try calendar or content calendar in place of editorial.
- Click around and look in the pages to find their editorial or content calendar. In this case, it was the first result.
Text version of the calendar from the above graphic reads:
