Revitalize Your Creativity with a Content Calendar Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 552

Do you ever find yourself stuck, searching for fresh content to create? I’ve been fortunate to have a wealth of ideas for my content creation, but I must confess, every once in a while, I hit a wall. It’s at these times that I turn to ChatGPT, and it has never disappointed me.

ChatGPT has recently introduced an exceptional feature called “Custom Instructions.” This feature allows users to specify what they want ChatGPT to know about them, leading to more personalized and effective responses. It’s a time-saver that has enhanced my workflow significantly.

Having a content calendar is like having a roadmap for our creativity. It helps us plan out what we’re going to do and when, so we’re not scrambling for ideas at the last minute. It keeps us on track, and most importantly, it can get us out of a creative rut by sparking new ideas.

As a staunch believer in content calendars, I decided to ask ChatGPT to craft a one-week content schedule tailored for my target audience (which might include you!). I challenged it to be inventive and align labels with the days of the week. Here’s its first attempt:
