5 Tips to Get Your Blog into Bikini Shape Just in Time for Summer Vacation

With one simple Google search, you can discover how to summer proof your hair, windows, makeup, gadgets and home but how about your blog?

I grew up believing that summer is a time for vacation, and one can leave non-vacation activities behind. However, once you have established a small business, maintaining your social media presence while vacationing is a necessary but tricky proposition.

Despite dreaming that perfecting your social media strategy means ‘sipping margarita’s while relaxing on a friends boat,’ planning for time away from your business does not have to mean silence on social media.

5 Tips to Keep Your Blog Active While You’re Relaxing

Here are five tips to “summer proof” your blog by queuing up quality content in advance leaving you with free time to relax with a good book by the pool (don’t forget SPF-50!).

Tip #1: Repurpose and repost content from your archives over time.

Tip #2: Make a list of quality blog post ideas you can implement in a short time frame.

Tip #3: Curate 3rd party content. 

Spend a few minutes curating content from sources you like and your audience might find interesting. Spending ten minutes now will save you in time in the future. Curated content keeps your social accounts active when you can’t.

Tip #4: Schedule your content.

First things first, schedule your content and social media weeks in advance (or even the entire summer). This way, your afternoon by the pool will be uninterrupted. One obvious choice is dlvr.it. Read: 7 Ways to Boost Social Media and Traffic with dlvr.it

Tip #5: Stay in touch (but not too much)

Make yourself semi-available! Take a quick glance to ensure your posts have gone out as scheduled and in the correct time zone. Also, check that preview links are showing up – then quickly get back to your book.

One more thought: Don’t post as much! It’s OK to decide to take Fridays off 🙂
