One of the key takeaways for me is that you have enough decent content written up front. Things happen in your business and the next thing you know 3 editorial dates have been missed and you lose inertia that you’ve worked so hard to generate.
I always keep 3 extra pieces on hand besides what’s on the calendar ahead for the next to weeks just as backup.
Also, one you’ve been blogging for a while, you can always update a popular old post and use that should an emergency arrive.
Great advice to all
