CoSchedule: The Editorial Calendar For WordPressI can’t believe I’ve been blogging here at Mom Fuse for over 7 years now. Seven years – that’s crazy! There has been a few ups and downs, we’ve been able to try some really cool products, I get to write for a living and it’s made it possible for me to stay at home with the kids which is priceless.

I will admit, when I first started bloggin I wasn’t into scheduling posts or keeping track of stats and whatnot but then my curiosity got the best of me and I became interested and started keeping an eye on things more closely. I’ve also kept my list of favorite blogging resources (which you can see here) that I use to keep my blog going and programs that help me make it a better blog.

One of the tools I’m deeply in love with is CoSchedule. I have been using CoSchedule as my social media calendar and for keeping track of the upcoming posts I have scheduled here at Mom Fuse.
