How to Use a Publishing Checklist to Achieve Success

It is always best to have a set routine when publishing a post. This means that you totally ensure that your post is ready for readers to view it. I have a set list that I work through. Once I have completed this I am assured that the post is ready to be viewed.

There are of course areas that need altering depending on your publishing criteria. However, below is the basic checklist I work through with all my posts.


  • Read through the article, a day after writing it.
  • Put the article through Hemingway Editor to look for complicated sentence formation. Follow all the advice where possible.
  • Put the article through Grammarly to check for grammatical areas. Again use caution with some of the suggestions.
  • Spend ten minutes crafting a number of headlines. Run these through CoScheduleto see which scores the best. Change some aspects to score higher if possible.
  • Place all this in your blogging application.
  • Choose appropriate sub-headings.
  • Use appropriate quotes and mark them so. These can be your words or that of others.
  • Check you have used appropriate SEO(This is not necessary for Medium)
  • Select appropriate tags in line with SEO
  • Submit to a publication in Medium if appropriate.
  • Hit publish
  • Share links to this post on all your social media. Including Facebook groups — Bloggers & Medium Support is my personal group.
  • Three days later, share this post again to social media

Different writers will have different processes, however, this is the basic publishing schedule I use.
