Hey, it’s Denise here from luckybitch.com and I’m going to share with you how I recently created a whole year’s worth of content for my blog in a very, very short period of time.
Now why would you want to do that?
Well, I’ve noticed that since I’ve become much more organized in my business, I’ve batched things, I’ve just had more processes in place – I’ve become a much better CEO. Funny, that!
I have also had a lot more time to spend with my family and just more creative time for my brain to come up with more ideas for my business.
So, let’s talk about how you can create a year’s worth of content for your blog as well.

Lucky Bitch Video Transcript – How to Create a Year’s Worth of Content for Your Blog
Okay, so I’ve spoken about this before, and you might want to check out one of my other blog posts where I talk about how I create content in terms of the logistics of how I turn my videos into blogs and newsletters, but today I’m going to talk about how to create some ideas.
Now I’ve also talked about asking your list or asking people on your Facebook page, and I’m not going to cover that today.
Here’s kind of an unusual thing:
I recently had my entire year’s astro profile done. So I went with an astrologer and she came up with different themes for every month.
Then, I was like, my topic is money. I know I’m going to be talking about money and my audience is women in business. So, I only need a few little ideas per month to come up with ideas. I’m looking at my spreadsheet now. So, say for example, August for me was around creativity and around heart. And apparently my sign is in Leo in that month.
It really doesn’t mean that much to me, and I have no idea what any of that really means, but it’s given me some ideas. So if I look at my spreadsheet now and I go, “Okay, so my topic is money. My audience is women in business. What can I do around creativity and heart?”
Then I brainstorm some topics in that area:
How to Make More Love Money in Your Business
How Creativity Can Help You Make More Money
Is Your Business Aligned with Your Purpose?
I very easily come up with maybe three to five different points for each month.
Now you think, well you might not be interested in astrology or whatever. But you can use that same process to quickly create a lot of content for your blog as well.
Make sure you know what your topic is and then who is your audience.
Is it women in business?
Is it mothers in business?
Is it young women in business?
Is it women over 40 in business?
Whatever it is, you want to make sure you know those two things.
Then, you can get those prompts from anywhere. I just happened to get mine from my astrologer, which sounds like such a woo-crazy-woo thing to do. You can get yours from anywhere—you can pick a word from random for that month. You can open up a book and pick the first word that comes to you. You can ask your partner to give you a word of the day. You can just turn on the TV and see what comes up.
It really doesn’t matter, but if you follow those prompts, it’s going to give you some creative space to come up with a lot of ideas very, very quickly.
And then, what can you do with that list?
Now I’ve got my massive spreadsheet for the whole year and I’ve got all of those ideas in there. So when I’ve got a little bit of time to create a video or quickly write a blog post, all I’ve got to do is go to that list and pick it out.
That’s it. It’s really, really easy.
You don’t have to come up with something fresh every time. It’s all there.
Part of being organized in your business and batching is making sure you don’t leave things to chance. You just follow a specific process and things just happen much quicker and much easier, so you can have a lot more fun and you can make a lot more money in your business.
So, I would love to hear from you in the comments.
