I realize this post topic isn’t for everyone (if you don’t have a blog but have been thinking about starting one, I have a fun guide on starting a blog), which is why I’m following this post up with a delicious recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers, and everyone can get down with that!
Are you a planner? Do you like to keep track of things and keeping things organized?
Raise of hands…I know that my hand just shot into the air faster than you would believe!I’m a big time planner and organizer.
But the thing is, as bloggers, we have life commitments, work, family, etc. and it can be very hard to keep things moving forward with our blogs and to track all the wonderful things that are happening. Did I remember to post that to my social media pages? Did I write down my idea for my latest post? What were my stats last month?
Those are questions I ask myself all-to-often!
And while I’ve purchased dozens (literally) of planners and organizers, none have met my blogging needs. I would end up taking a sheet out of one planner and mixing it with another and then it would end up looking like I was carting a big recycling pile around with me. At one point my husband asked me ‘why is your purse so heavy?’ And my laptop wasn’t even in it! I was carrying around over 150 pages of paper, and not using but a few.
I knew something had to change, and when I was sharing my frustration and idea about creating my own planner with my lovely blogging friend Lynn (whom I met at the blogging conference ChoppedCon and whom you’ve probably heard me rave about a time or two (yes, she’s the one with ALL the cinnamon incident), or three or four…I just cannot say enough great things about this girl, and if you haven’t already, you should check out her blog Order in the Kitchen… she made the best video ever on compound butter and I cannot wait to try that asap) she cheered me on and shared how she too was looking for a blog planner.
So after many days/hours/edits of creating and testing and seeing what information should go in what order and how it would be used in the natural flow of blogging, I created a 2015 Blog Planner & Organizer.
It’s lightweight (36 pages), yet includes so much useful information to keep you on track to meet your goals in 2015! It includes:
- Monthly blank calendar sheets, includes bonus December 2014 sheet (I just couldn’t wait until 2015 to start planning!)
- Monthly post tracking, includes bonus December 2014 sheet (when a post goes live keep track of all your social media shares, includes a section for goal and action item tracking)
- Monthly stat tracking (track your growth at the end of every month in this easy to use stat tracker)
- Blog maintenance page (at the end of every quarter check off items to maintain & grow your blog)
- To do list pages
- Ideas pages

You GO girl! So happy you got out there and designed one instead of buying one after another (like me!). xoxo
Thank you SO MUCH girl! It definitely is something I’m very proud of… Took me months to finally get it all together, I think you’d love it-really helps keep blog stuff on track 🙂 thanks as always for commenting!!
This is a fantastic idea! I really need to keep all my blog to-dos separate from my law school to-dos. Adding this to my Christmas wish list! 🙂
I’m the same way about keeping things separate… My regular planner was getting out of control! I think you’ll absolutely LOVE it!
