TGIF! Only a few more hours until the weekend! I’m hitting the road to Atlanta to spend the weekend with my beautiful mother to celebrate her birthday :) Speaking of, my home in Atlanta is the coordinates on the T’Audrey bangle I’m wearing above. It pairs perfectly with my Bip and Bop bangle on which I got my favorite bible verse engraved, 2 Timothy 1:7. I love the daily reminder of home and that “God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” Enjoy y’all’s weekend!

Free Blogging Printables: 2015 Blog Planner

Written by , Posted in Blogging Tips, DIY

FREE BLOGGING PLANNER

I’m a little late to the resolution game but in 2015, I’m resolving to be more organized. And no better place to start than here with my blog! I have a full-time job, so pre-scheduling my posts is extremely important. I searched the internet high and low for the perfect blog planning printables and didn’t find anything that fit me perfectly, so I created my own. And now I want to share it with you! Just click on the title to download the PDF.

Blogging-Planner-Graphic1

There are four options and you can chose whether to have it centered for clipboards or a tick right to make room for binding:

1. Blog Post Planner (centered/binding): This sheet is the final say before and after I send a post live. As brands reach out to collaborate, I organize their promo codes and URLS on this, as well as their specific social channels. I chronically forget to tag my images/posts or even worse, forget to credit my amazing photographer. With the checklist, I don’t make silly mistakes anymore and can get the most out of my posts.

2. Weekly Post Planner (centered/binding): Each Sunday I take a minute to plan out the week’s posts on this sheet. What I love most about it is recording my stats. I can flip back and see what worked one week and what fell flat another. I also like the option of scheduling the week’s social posts (do you hear me Instagram? Time for an app for this!).

3. Blog Brainstorming (centered/binding): I use this sheet the most. I have 12 printed out and fill in holidays first. As the month approaches, I add in brand deadlines, blogger meetups/events, and collaboration dates. It is the perfect quick overlook of my year. Tip… use a pencil on this page!

4. Planner Cover (centered/binding): If you are planning on getting your planner bound, download this matching cover.

I printed out a number of each of the sheets and got them spiral bound at Staples (only about $5), then I tote the book around with me because inspiration can strike at any time. Hopefully they can help you like they have helped me!

Is anyone else as depressed as I am that the college football season is over? I multi-tasked last night during the game since I didn’t have a dog in the fight (no SEC teams in the Championship!), swapping back and forth between it and The Bachelor, all while giving my blog a little facelift. I hope y’all like the new logo and graphics :) Thank goodness I got my work done last night, because tonight we’re going to see Sam Hunt! Somebody hold me back from the stage…

Hey y’all! Who else is bummed that the holidays are officially behind us and it’s back to the grind? *Raises hand* At least Lilly Pulitzer is attempting to sooth our pain with her After Party sale.

I am officially coming up for air after a week-long football binge. My teams have won some and lost some but regardless, I’m going to be sad to see the season go! I hope y’all enjoyed the holidays!

It’s Friday! And not a regular Friday… Friday before a whole week off! I am heading to Atlanta tomorrow morning to spend the holidays with my family. This will be the outfit I am wearing to my parents’ Christmas party tomorrow night.

There are some major sales going on this weekend, the kind that enable folks like me to continue being procrastinators. Target is having a 30% off sale on all clothing (I got these macaron PJs), LOFT is 40% off and 50% off all sweaters, J. Crew Factory is 50% off everything including clearance plus an extra 15% off in stores (see my picks under $30 below), Old Navy is 25% off with code PRANCER (see my picks under $20 below), Piperlime is 30% off New Years Eve styles with code CHEERS, Express is 50% off everything (grab this skirt!), and American Eagle is 40% off everything. I linked my favorite gifts below! I hope y’all have a safe trip home and enjoy the time with family :)
