It’s said that success in blogging is all about consistency and if you’re like me you’ll need a visual to help keep you consistent. This is why I absolutely cannot live without WPFutureCal.
This 100% free plugin lets me quickly see when I have blog posts scheduled and easily keep track of how consistent I’ve been with my blogging. In the screenshot below the yellow boxes represent blog posts that have already gone live, the green boxes represent blog posts I have scheduled out in the future.
As you can easily see I try to keep to a schedule of Monday – Wednesday – Friday. This helps me know my next blog post should be scheduled for Monday Feb 15. The reason this plugin is handy for my style of blogging is simple, when I’m inspired to write I do several blog posts in one sitting. Many times those topics follow a specific theme and I want to group those posts together in a series.
