Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post! Today’s post is all about how I plan my Instagram schedule. I run a Bullet Journal Instagram account (you can follow me here) and I need a system that enables me to plan when I post. This is more about scheduling as opposed to the actual content. If you would like a blog post on that, feel free to let me know!
The way I plan my schedule starts with the actual taking of photos. I always make sure to take quite a few photos in advance. For example, I have about 10 photos already taken ready to be uploaded.
Once I’m happy with the photos I’ve taken and they’re all edited, I will put them in a folder on my phone so that they are all together and I can see how they look as if they were on my Instagram feed.
I will then go into my Bullet Journal and straight to my Instagram content planner (which should be renamed to schedule. Shh.) I have a mini calendar and I essentially use that to decide when each photo should be uploaded.
You will notice that some are written in pen and some are written in pencils. I always look at the photos I have first of all and write them in pencil. Once that day has passed, I will write it in pen because I think it looks better. I write them in pencil so that it’s easy to change around the schedule if need be. I’m always taking photos and sometimes, I may want another photo to appear earlier or I may not be happy with the schedule. A calendar just allows me to have an overall look at the month.
A short post this week but that’s how I plan my Instagram schedule! Thank you so much for reading and I shall see you in the next post.
