Benefits of Using Notion for Blogging
Streamlining your blogging process
Content is King, no doubt. But you cannot spend all of your time creating content while ignoring other important tasks. This is why streamlining your blogging process is key.
Most bloggers use different tools to achieve this; a separate tool for Calendar, a note-taking tool to keep track of ideas, and many other tools.
Notion solves all of these. You can save notes, build databases, create content calendars, set reminders, write articles, collaborate, assign tasks, and view changes in real time.
This helps you streamline your blogging journey because as your blog continues to grow, so does the endless list of stuff that needs to be done.
Efficient organization of ideas and content
Regarding efficiency in organizing your ideas and content, Notion gets the highest credit.
Feather itself comes with blog-specific features like blogs, pages, authors, RSS feed, schema markup, etc., to complement Notion and make the blog a fully functional one (with beautiful blog templates) and SEO-optimized to rank content on Google.
With Feather, you take Notion from a content database platform to an entire blogging platform with better advantages than traditional platforms like WordPress, Ghost, etc.
Organising Content with Notion
Here are some ways you can use Notion to organize your content:
Create a database: One of the most powerful features of Notion is its ability to create databases. You can create a database for just about anything, such as your reading list, your to-do list, your workout routine, or your project management tasks. Within each database, you can create columns to store different types of information and customize them to fit your needs.
Use templates: Notion comes with a variety of templates that can help you get started with organizing your content. For example, you can use the "Meeting Notes" template to keep track of your meeting notes, or the "Personal CRM" template to organize your contacts.
Create pages: Notion allows you to create pages for your content. You can create a page for each project you're working on, each course you're taking, or each trip you're planning. Within each page, you can add text, images, files, and other types of content.
Use tags: Notion also allows you to use tags to organize your content. You can assign tags to different pages or items in your databases, making it easier to find them later on.
Link pages and databases: Notion makes it easy to link pages and databases together. For example, you can create a page for your reading list and link it to your database of books. This way, you can easily access all the information you need about a particular book from one central location.
Collaborate with others: Notion allows you to collaborate with others on your content. You can share your pages and databases with your team or your friends, and everyone can work together to keep everything organized.
