1st comes the idea itself, then gather content, then think of a catchy phrase which I usually have written down a few for the post. Photos are last. 

I still write in NVu 1st then transfer over to AR.

The channeling begins. The title is changed many times. Or not. The images and video are added.
Title is changed again.

It depends but I usually start with a general title before I start writing.  While I write, I save as I go so there is a title to go back to if something wonky happens before I'm finished.  After the Title, I write the post, choose a quote and image that fits the content, change the Title to fit the article, then do the bottom stuff. 

However, if I'm writing a post around a video I Title the post, insert the video then write the article. I always fill out the bottom part last.

I get an idea and write the first draft, refine, refine, then let me wife review and make edit suggestions. I edit, accepting most of the suggestions, but not all. I copy & paste from Word to AR. I usually have the title, but that's part of the writing process. I then add pictures or videos and do the final formatting within the AR platform.

I write all of my blog posts in MS Word first. Then I copy it to notepade to remove any formatting, and then I copy it into whatever platform I am posting on (Active Rain, WordPress, etc.). After that I add the image or video.

Bonus Tip - I also use Google's keyword tool in selecting my titles which helps with SEO.
