1) Have draft posts ready to be put up to fill in gaps at a moments notice..
2) Schedule posts ahead of time..
Lets look at the Pro/Con list one at a time for each of these and figure out just how good they are!
Option 1: Pre-Draft Writting
There are a few posts ready at all times to chose from for any given day when you need a quick post.
You can write or Vlog about anything even if you don't want to post it just yet.
After a long day you don't have to sit and write or frantically edit a video to have a post of something ready for the next day. (This is really helpful for Vlogs or videos I'd bet!)
You can take your time Editing to make sure it is just the way you want it!!!
It's a great option if your "Life Happens" is only going to last for a short time... Especially if you only post a few things in a week.
If "Random Content" best describes you Blog or Vlog then it is perfect!
You have to spend time to figure out which draft you want to post.
You may end up with a lot of posts about random things you don't know if you ever really want to post. (Hay they seemed like great ideas when you make/wrote them)
You are not always able to get on the internet to make sure you hit "Publish" at the right time of day. This is really bad if your Blog or Vlog goes out at the same time every time! (For example... mine goes out at 8:30am EST every weekday)
If you wrote about something that was mentioned in the Draft you are about to post you have to make sure you haven't contradicted yourself! (This can take as much time as just writing a post!!!)
Posting too many days of random stuff can get confusing... What if you have things that you post about every week... If your "Life Happens" lasts past that day are you going to have a draft of that topic to post on the right day??? (Think of the people who come on just for that weekly post!!!)
