Welcome to BS’ing with Brandi where my mission is to help you #GetShitDone. I'm your host Brandi Good and today we’re going to talk about my blogging system. I’m going to describe to you in detail, how I create my blog from planning to writing to publishing to promotion, and then I want you to steal the entire workflow or at least cherry pick the parts that are going to apply the best to you.

Here are the types of tools & tech you need to think about:
- Blogging platform
- Graphics/stock photos
- Docs for writing
- Task management/content calendar for tracking
Here are the processes you need to consider:
- Planning your topics
- Actually doing the writing
- Creating promotional material (graphics, social media posts, etc.)
Now that you have an idea of what you could include in your system, you need to figure out:
- What tech you’re going to use
- How much time do you have? How long can you spend on each post, and how frequently can you publish?
- Where can you do your braindumping?
- What parts of your process can you batch?
- How are you going to timeblock and manage due dates?
