SPI 215: How to Keep Up With Your Editorial Calendar (and How to Get Ahead)

I want to introduce a very important member of Team Flynn whose work you see every day on, though you might not realize it. She’s Janna Maron, my Managing Editor.

Janna has been an indispensable part of improving the quality and consistency of the content I create for SPI, which includes my blog posts, my SPI TV videos, and podcast episodes like this one. She’s also had a huge impact on refining workflows and making projects run more smoothly for my team. Thanks to Janna, I no longer have to stare at an empty screen each month, wondering what to write about—I’ve always got clear deadlines and a clear plan of action for bringing you guys something great.

Today, Janna’s here to share how she revolutionized the SPI editorial process, how she helps maintain our workflow, and what she recommends for solo bloggers who want to improve their own editorial habits. You’ll hear her favorite tools for organizing content and writing tips you can put into action today.

Whether you’re turning out two blog posts a month or twenty, Janna’s wisdom can help!
