My New Blog Post Schedule!

My New Blog Post Schedule!

Hey guys! I hope you’re having a fantastic Friday. ❤ Today, I have some very good news to share!!

The last few months have been so full for me and my family that blogging really took the back burner for a while. It was throughout the late fall and most of the winter that I would occasionally write something, but the priority just wasn’t there. I knew it was the right thing to do, because most of those days, there wasn’t enough room left in my brain to compose even just an update, which is saying a lot, haha! And when something isn’t enjoyable for me anymore, at least for a time, it’s extremely beneficial when I take a step back, pray about it, and remain open to returning to it when the time is right. While I never took an official “break” from posting at that time (basically the last trimester of my mom’s pregnancy with Isabella), I certainly felt disconnected from the community, and from my own site, as well.

The last several months have been tricky when it comes to having an official blog post schedule on Dreaming of Guatemala. I was posting so infrequently, and had also lost interest in different series, that I couldn’t keep up with anything for a good length of time. I’ve mentioned before in my blog tip posts that giving your readers what to expect from your blog is an awesome way to keep them reading and also inspiring you to write, but I’ve had to veer from my own advice and instead be present, 100%, for my family. I missed having a post ready for nearly every day of the week, because having a lot of content to share is great! But I wasn’t able to do that for a while, and it was better to miss posting than to stick to something that brought me down.

However, today’s post is a small celebration of a shift of gears in my life. I’m at the point now where I can comfortably think about posting structure and blogging consistently, which I’m truly excited about! I’ll still be writing posts within the week of posting them, which I promised I’d do in my New Year Blogging Thoughts post in December. The difference will be in how many posts I share weekly, and the fact that they’ll finally have a day of the week assigned to them!

This decision won’t in any way constrain me to sharing posts I’m not inspired to share. I’d love for everything that I write to be what I enjoy and what readers like, too, so there will definitely be days when I don’t have a post. These basic guidelines for myself will keep me inspired, and happy knowing my readers can expect consistency from my blog from now on. 🙂

Let’s take a look at what I’ve come up with! ❤


My New Blog Post Schedule

Mondays are for Missions. 

Tuesdays are for Reviews.

Wednesdays are for Inspiration. 

Thursdays are for Lifestyle / Recipes.

Fridays are for Goals.

Saturdays are for Shoutouts / Blog Tips.

Sundays are for Spiritual Inspiration.


These guidelines are subject to change, haha, but this is the basic plan! The days that have two kinds of posts will be alternated weekly when possible, and beginning/end of the month posts (as well as updates) will affect the normal schedule. 🙂

Thank you so much for reading! If you’d like to chat about blog schedules with me, definitely comment down below. And if you have any post / series ideas for me, I’d love to know!

I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤

  1. I think having a blogging schedule that changes depending on updates and things of that nature is a smart idea.

    I use one that slightly varies. For instance, for the month of March I won’t be posting at all due to other commitments, but I’ll definitely be back to New posts in April.

    1. Definitely! It’s nice to have a basic plan for normal weeks, but I usually share updates any day I need to.

      That’s good to know. I’ve had off months with blogging myself. I hope you have a wonderful March!

    1. Hi! ❤ Aww that is so cool! 🙂 and thank you so much! I truly appreciate it ❤ Sure! I have a blog tips category on my blog, if you’d be interested in checking that out 🙂 I’ve been blogging for quite a while now, haha! You’re welcome, I’ll be over to check out your blog, as well. Thanks for commenting!


  3. That’s a great variety, Maggie!!!

    It’s what helped me with Peeking knowing which topics I talk about on which days, but I will say I don’t write every day on Peeking Beneath, and I make sure I know which days could be free for alls when my posts break the norm of schedules.

    You’re doing awesome!! Can’t wait to see what you share. 🙂

    1. Thanks! ❤ Yes, it really helps to know what topics you want to cover and when. 🙂 I’m wanting to have days off on my blog, as well, but knowing what kinds of posts to share if I have one to write is helpful. Same!

      Thank you so much ❤

  6. That sounds like a really nice plan! I know what its like to just not be motivated or to simply be overwhelmed by all the work you have to do outside the blogging world, sometimes its hard to keep up with everything. I try to post 3 times a week and that‘s already a limit for me just because of how much I have going on. So i think your blogging schedule sounds REALLY impressive!!! Looking forward to reading all your posts ❤️
