Blogging Plans

What’s your process for planning blog posts?

To be honest in most of the cases, I do not plan anything. I either look for a prompt, like this one, or if something comes up from what I read, heard or thought up. Sponsored posts are something else altogether. Some of my posts, the minority, do take some planning and I will tell you about them.

So let’s say that I am asked to blog about a certain topic and I need to do some research. I type out what I think will be the heading or blog post title. Then I check out various sources online and find the details that I need. I will also google for an image that represents the topic that I am writing about. For me I like a nice image with some colours that pop or the pic looks really good.

At the end of it if I need to place a few links to sources or website that offer more details then I will do that as well. At the end of it I will do a bit of editing to make sure that the spacing of all paragraphs are done to my liking. And that’s about. I click on Pubish and we are off.


Crystal Palace 1 Arsenal 3

Roy Hodgson’s farewell match at Selhurst Park ended in a last-gasp defeat as Gabriel Martinelli latched onto fellow substitute Martin Odegaard’s cross to convert from close range on 91 minutes before Nicolas Pepe coolly rolled in Arsenal’s third four minutes later. Christian Benteke’s diving header from Andros Townsend’s free-kick had levelled for the home side after Pepe had volleyed in to finish off a neat Arsenal move. Up until the 90th minute, Arteta’s side had been largely poor and it looked as if a fairly miserable season was petering out without much incident.

The Gunners have lost a club record-equalling 13 games in a 38-game season but Martinelli and Pepe’s goals gave their side a lifeline in the quest for European football next season. But they will need results to go their way if they are to finish seventh and claim a place in next season’s inaugural Europa League Conference competition. Despite failing to offer significant attacking threat for much of the contest, they ended up scoring with all three of their shots on target. On-loan Odegaard started the game on the bench and his future in doubt but the Real Madrid man proved his effectiveness with a delightful cross which Martinelli converted.

Arsenal’s excellent late-season form has seen them collect their fourth straight league win for the first time since 2018 and they will go into Sunday’s match against Brighton full of optimism. Arsenal picked up their first Premier League victory against Crystal Palace since January 2018, having been winless in five against the Eagles prior to today. Arsenal have won four consecutive Premier League games under Mikel Arteta for the very first time.
