I am a self-proclaimed planner addict. I love planners, especially paper ones and I have had a variety of different ones for different purposes throughout the years. When I started blogging in 2012, I tried many different planners and many different free printables to organize my blogging. It just was not working. I am hit on a constant basis with blog ideas and I need a safe place to write down and keep my ideas.
Last year, I had the infamous Life Planner by Erin Condren and although it was helpful for my personal life, it did not work so well for my blog and my random thoughts. That is why, this year I ordered a Take-Note Notebook with the Calendar pages for my blog planner.
It has revolutionized the way that I blog and made my productivity go through the roof. I can actually keep up with an editorial calendar now! After reading How to Blog for Profit without Selling Your Soul by Ruth Soukup, I realized how important an editorial calendar is for making your blog work. I highly recommend this eBook to any blogger out there looking to improve their blog!
Therefore, without further ado let me walk you through my awesome planner: 🙂
The calendar pages I use for scheduling my post (editorial calendar) and keeping track of personal appointments. I keep personal appointments along with my blogging schedule to keep me organized and prevent me from forgetting an important task/event.
The notebook pages I use to keep up with my random thoughts and blog inspiration. I keep on the last page of the notebook a list of the linky parties I regularly attend, their days, and their specific topics. This allows me to keep up with where I link up and what days the link ups are.
I love that I can make my to-do list, my random ideas list, linky list, newsletter list, and my editorial calendar all in one organized notebook. What kind of blog planner do you use?
