Use Trello to manage blog posts
I use Trello to manage my blog posts, ideas and images. Like many Virtual Assistants, I have tried several productivity tools to see what suits me and the way I work. I had tried Trello in the past but preferred Asana. Now, I have moved away from Asana back to Trello.
What is Trello?
Trello is a project management tool. You create boards, lists and cards to organise your tasks. Check out my blog How to use Trello to organise your tasks for a breakdown of boards, lists and cards.
Blogging is a great way to demonstrate to your audience, your knowledge and expertise in your industry. By blogging regularly, you will be adding fresh new content to your website. Not only is this good as Google likes new content added to websites but it will encourage your audience to come back to your website.
If you struggle to come up with topics to write about, think about questions that your customers have asked you. You can also write case studies, share tips and showcase your knowledge.
Once you have set up Trello, you can create a board for your blogs.
How you set up your board and lists is up to you. The good thing is, that you can move things around, create new lists, archive cards and lists. Use the board so it helps you rather than hinders you.
Examples of Lists for your Blogging Board
- Notes and Ideas
- Blog post titles
- Dates for blogs to be published
- List of Categories and Tags for your blog post
- Images to use for your blog posts
- Blog posts in progress
- Blog posts published
You can also create a checklist so you can monitor progress.
I find Trello is great to keep everything all together. I have ideas for blog posts which I can look at for inspiration, ones that I am working on now and ones that I have published all in one place. It also works well if you have a team or are collaborating with someone as you can add comments to cards.
