A great way to be more proactive and frequent in publishing new content is to start with an editorial calendar. It doesn’t have to be complicated or take a lot of time.

Just start with a handful of themes that are relevant to your audience, and list them down the left-hand side of a spreadsheet. Then, over the course of the next few weeks (listed across the top of the spreadsheet), identify 1-2 specific topics you’ll address and write about that week.

Even if you don’t follow the calendar exactly every week, I guarantee this will help you feel more confident and prepared to get something published.
