Are you an organized blogger?

What kind of blogger are you: do you schedule your posts ahead of time or do you fly by the seat of your pants?

Personally, I post on the days when I can. I very rarely schedule posts ahead of time, unless I have extra time during the day to crank out a few extra posts for days I don't blog (like the weekend). I have a tentative organized schedule in my head: Tuesdays/Thursdays I post reviews if I am done with a book and Monday/Wednesday/Fridays I do memes. On the weekends I post interesting books I have found around the web or in magazines or sometimes a discussion post (but I rarely post on the weekends).

So what about you? What is your blogging organizational style like?

A lot of time, sunday nights i write up the Monday what are you reading meme. Then out on finishing touches monday morning before posting it. And the bloghop i have been doing thursday. So i think the memes i participate in, i do ahead of time. If i choose to review a book i read, then i do it almost right after i read it where it is fresh in my mind.

I usually schedule posts the day before for Mailbox Monday. Waiting on Wednesday, Friday Finds. The other posts (reviews etc) get posted when I have extra time.

I'm a little of both. I try to schedule some posts ahead of time--like my Sarcastic Sunday posts, Coming Attraction posts or any reviews of books that are not out for a few months.

Everything else...whenever I feel like it XD its why some days are heavier then others--I don't much pay attention to how much I already have scheduled.

Organized? Meh, sometimes. The long July 4th weekend did give me time to write and schedule this week's past posts, but usually I fly by the seat of my pants.

For some ARC's and interviews and such I schedule things or have a rough timeline in my head. But most of the time, it is when I get to it.

I try to be organized but it only lasts for so long :)

I love that we are all somewhat organized but at the same time we also fly by the seat of our pants. Thanks so much to everyone who commented!

I do some of both, but mostly it's by the seat of my pants.

Sometimes I have my WoW scheduled for weeks in advance. I never can do teaser tuesday until the day before because who knows what I will be reading. I work on my What are you reading Monday the week before and finalize on Sunday.

Reviews sometimes get posted a few days in advance, and I typically make the post with all but the review when I start a book so it's easy to do just the review when I finish.

I want to be more organized, but I can't seem to get there.
