Before + After Checklists for Your Blog Posts (and a free download)

Before and After You Post Checklists for Bloggers

Short + sweet today. Just wanted to share a resource I created and use for my blog posts: The Before You Post + After You Post Checklist of things you can do to create and promote the most quality content possible. With SEO, image design, social media, grammar, and more to worry about, it’s simple to forget some important things.

Below is the free PDF download of my checklist. I recommend getting it laminated so you can use it over and over, but you know . . . whatever works for you. Hope you enjoy it.

Before You Post Checklist for Your Blog + After You Post Checklist

Download the checklist by clicking the image above or by opening it here: The Before and After Your Post Checklists for Blogging

(P.S. Here are more checklists, of daily, weekly + monthly business tasks for bloggers)

    Such a great list! There are definitely some things on here I need to work on!

    Just wanted to say I just found your blog and love it — so fun and helpful!

    • regina says:

      Diana, thank you! That is so encouraging to me. Just stopped by your blog and checked out all your wonderful new photography. I’m putting that on my list of things to learn this year–well, at least the basics.

    Regina – this is a great list and a great example of a free print out. Thanks again for living your advice and teaching us all so well. So far I have naturally just thanked anyone who shared my post, but it’s good to see your reminder here so that I remember that it’s not only good etiquette, but crucial.

    All the best,

      Amy, thank you. I know sometimes it’s hard to know or see each time someone shares your content (because they may not tag you on Twitter, or you may simply miss it on Pinterest), but I think you’re correct to call it crucial because it sends the message that you actually appreciate someone’s support. In the end, it probably endears you to your friends and supporters even more, making them more likely to share you in the future.

      But honestly, I just enjoy the opportunity to make new Internet friends because that is where I spend most of my day!

    This is very helpful, Regina! there are a lot of things to do after publishing a post that is great to have a list of reminders. Thank you!

    • regina says:

      Maru, thank you for reading + thanks for the compliment. Glad it’s helpful.

      I just can’t get over how attractive your blog is. I love reading your posts and I adore all your layouts + images!

  9. […] Before + After Checklists for Your Blog Posts. I just discovered ByRegina on Bloglovin this week and I am already obsessed. And seriously sad about all of the amazingness I’ve been missing out on. I’ve followed other advice blogs, but comparing those to Regina is apples to oranges. Regina has created the best site for blogging tips & advice, with lots of checklists (I LOVE checklists) and ‘homework’ type assignments. I mean, she even has a whole library of free stuff titled ‘start here‘ for newbies like me! And she’s freaking hilarious. Seriously, though, so many resources here. Our printer bit the dust (I’m hoping to purchase a new one this weekend), and as soon as we get a new one in, I’m going to be all over printing these checklists out for easy reference. I love the suggestion to laminate them to use again and again with whiteboard markers – I’ll probably do my version which is to create a mini-whiteboard by putting the page in a cheap frame. Write on the glass/plastic with marker, and then wipe off! […]

    Thanks for this list Regina! I’ve been thinking about making a blog post before/after checklist so coming across this post was perfect timing :)

    • regina says:

      Meg, that’s awesome to hear it was good timing. Thank you.

      Your blog is very attractive. I love the colors and your consistent use of fonts. You say “professional procrastinator” but I can’t tell.

      P.S. Coooool profile photo.
