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! You have two options… to purchase the pre-made planner (220 pages, paperback bound) click here. Or for the free downloads, just click on the titles below to download the PDF versions (make sure you have Adobe installed on your computer).
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!
