SAMPLE GUEST SUBMISSION

Short bio: I have been a food blogger for 9 years at Pip and Ebby. After years of getting one or two new posts up per week with TONS of effort, I have figured out a way to post new content on my blog every other day in 20 hours/week or less, with 95% of the posts containing video.

Topic idea: Create 182 new recipe posts in a calendar year with 20-hour work weeks, with Megan Porta of pipandebby.com.

Bullet Points:

  • For the first 8 years of food blogging it was a constant struggle to get 2 new posts up per week. I saw other bloggers doing so much more and wondered what I was doing wrong.

  • Finally had clarity and resolve to make massive changes.

  • Period of reflection about habits and lack of routine/structure, both in and out of work.

  • Starting exercising regularly (5x/week) and didn’t stray. Established a morning routine and didn’t stray. Began planning ahead (something I’d NEVER done before). With work I started with small tasks like what I would make for recipes the following week. Over time I scheduled out 2 weeks in advance. Then 3, then 4, then I had recipes planned every other day months ahead of time.

  • Having a calendar that spelled out what was coming allowed me to prepare much more effectively. I began batching my work. An entire day of making recipes, an entire day of photo editing, etc.

  • I knew I wanted to create a recipe video for most of my new posts and knew this wouldn’t be feasible on my own, so I hired a contractor to come to my home once/week to film recipes that I was making/photographing that week. She also edits and delivers final videos, so everything video-related was suddenly cleared from my slate.

  • I recognized a BIG task that was not one of my favorite things to do (video) and figured out a way to outsource it to accommodate my schedule.

  • Current weekly schedule for new content: Monday – 5 hours making and photographing recipes (filming gets done during this time, too); Tuesday – 5 hours photo editing; Wednesday – 5 hours writing/SEO tweaking; Thursday – 5 hours recipe writing and planning.

  • This schedule never would have come together without big core changes in my life, both with personal and business.
