New Blogging Schedule

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’re well-rested and looking forward to a productive week. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to see what gets posted in the wonderful world of WordPress this week.

In this post I just wanted to let you know what to expect in terms of my posting on this blog in the coming weeks and months. I’m going to try out a schedule, writing four short posts each week on set days. Here’s the plan:

Monday Music

A short post offering a piece of music to inspire you, move you, or motivate you at the start of the week. I will mix up the genres but keep the quality high!

Thursday Theology

A reflection on a topic linked to theology. This will mostly be Christian theology but I will also look at insights from other religions.

Friday Philosophy

Every Friday I will look at a different philosopher and will offer a concise reflection on something meaningful and interesting that they have contributed.

Sunday Summary

A recap of my week. This will be a more personal post focusing on what I’ve been up to during the week and any prayer requests or praise reports that I feel I’d like to share.

This schedule may be interrupted occasionally, particularly around the release of my music. I’m committed to releasing a new song on the 10th of each month, so if that falls outside of a Music Monday (the odds are rather high), I might have to do a little juggling. I also like to review books, so will try to fit in a review once in a while. But I’ll do my best to stick to the schedule and will let you know if anything changes.

What are your thoughts on blogging schedules? Do you have a set plan concerning when you post, and does it work for you? Let me know in comments below. God bless you!


  1. Sounds like a good schedule. The posts compliment each other πŸ™‚

    I think schedules can be really helpful. I know they have helped me become a more consistent blogger, which helps me work on becoming a better writer.

    1. Thank you! Your schedule certainly seems to be working well on Inside Cup. I think having a schedule creates a bit of extra stress, but it’s worth it, as long as one is able to keep coming up with meaningful content πŸ™‚ Good to hear from you!

      1. I’ve found it can be stress-inducing mainly when posts are pushed last minute, which I’ve been guilty of haha πŸ™‚ but it also has helped me stay organized and increased my creativity as well. Completely agree, it’s worth it when you can keep up and post meaningful content.

        1. Well, I think you’re doing a superb job! It’s inspiring to see that you have a schedule, and stick to it. And I like your creativity and community-focus, with the alphabet devotional and prayer requests for instance πŸ™‚

  2. This is a great schedule Steven. Like T.R. said, I think having a blogging schedule is a great way to know when you are blogging and what you are blogging about. I have a blog schedule for 2018 and it works for me.

    1. Hi God’s Warrior, thank you for the encouragement! That’s cool that you have a schedule too. I just realised that I’m not subscribed to your blog yet so I will do that! What’s your schedule?

        1. Once a week on Friday sounds good, considering you’re busy with other commitments.

          I’m following your blog because we’ve engaged in discussions several times, because you’re a Christian, and because I’m interested to see what you write about. Hope that answers your question?!

  3. Nope, scheduled blogging wouldn’t work for me. There are a lot of times I’m led to write, and not in my private journal. I love those moments and watching Him do whatever He wishes, when He wishes.

  4. Sounds good, Steven. I’ve followed a schedule since the start of the year and I love it. I still find that I am able to write as the Holy Spirit prompts me as well.
    Looking forward to the new change!
    Hayley 😊

    1. And I hit send when I wasn’t finished πŸ™‚ I try to do a challenge question, as long as I will be in town to moderate, that is scheduled for Saturday’s at 1p.m. and any other things I feel led to write, or awards, I do them immediately, and post at 1p.m. on the day I wrote it. If it’s after 1 p.m. I schedule it for the next day. I feel it has to be what is comfortable for you. Blogging should be enjoyable, and not a stressful chore. Either way you decide, I absolutely enjoy you blog, and will always read. I’m dealing with a health issue, so i might get behind but I will catch up :):)God bless you Steven πŸ™‚

      1. Sorry to hear about the health issue, Margaret. You’re in my prayers, and I hope you’re not suffering too much.

        So glad that you enjoy the blog! Thank you for engaging with me πŸ™‚ God bless.

        1. The prayers are worth more than gold! I get extremely exhausted, and concentrating, reading, sometimes even thinking are a challenge. But God is good. He has a purpose. I rest in the faith that when I am weak, He is strongest. It’s comforting to know that we all pray for each other. My prayer list has grown so much since I starter the blog.

    2. Haha that’s true Margaret! There’s something to be said for short posts though, and for focusing purely on Scripture as you do. Have you considered writing anything to complement the Scripture quotations you use? Like explaining why you chose them? Perhaps that’s not your style or purpose (feel free to ignore me!), I’m just curious! God bless πŸ™‚

      1. I would never ignore you πŸ™‚ I always ask God to show me the verses He wants me to post for His children before I start reading. Then the verses that won’t leave me alone, so to speak, are the ones I post. Sometimes, I say, Lord this isn’t very uplifting haha but I have learned post it, or I won’t have any peace. I prefer the peace :):)

        I’ve not typed up something to go with the verse because I feel that God talks to each of us through His Word. And what He is saying to me through a verse, might not be what He is trying to say to you because we are all so different, and going through different things. I feel, if I say this is what this verse means to me, some one might take it as gospel, and miss what God is trying to say to them. Does that make sense?
