Do you outline your posts (planningor do you just go ahead by the seat of your pants (pantzing) ?

I don’t think I’ve ever outlined anything unless it’s an assignment for school. I must admit though, outlining is useful in its own ways but it’s way too much work, especially for my schedule these days – bullet points, lists, details, ah, by the time I’ve done all that, I could’ve written and edited an entire post.

So no, I don’t ever outline my posts.

I don’t know what “pantzing” means but I’m guessing that’s another word for “winging it?” As in writing in an impromptu manner?

I tried Googling but it’s told me “pantzing” is when someone takes off their pants in an adult (explicit) manner. I’m pretty sure that’s not what it means here and ewwww. So I’m going with “winging it.”

I rarely wing my posts (it doesn’t mean never).

I think most of the time, I do somewhere in between. I have a schedule to write posts for specific challenges. I will typically write a draft and then edit until my satisfaction level is reached before scheduling the post to go live. That is just about the only thing I can say is “planned” about my blogging process. I don’t ever click the “publish” button. I always schedule my posts.

  1. I guess the formal word would be Spontaneity but Winging it is fine too.
    My blog is extremely family friendly and never has adult content.
    I heard the word Pantzing used in the context of Winging it. The depantzing aspect never crossed my mind.

    I am with you about planning. Although a little is needed to stay organized, too much can take the fun out of blogging .
