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).

FREE BLOGGING PLANNER

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!

    • Hey Stephanie,

      I need to clear that up in the post! Click on centered or binding next to the title to get the pdf. I hope that works! 🙂 If not, let me know and I’ll email them to you!

      Thanks,

      Cortney

  1. These are so cool! I have my own checklists too, but having it all in one place is going to really help me. I tried to do everything digitally, but was using several different websites. Also, Latergramme is an app that helps you schedule Instagram posts, it doesn’t actually post them for you but it send you a reminder at the time that you’ve scheduled to let you know that you planned to post at that time. Not fool proof yet, but it’s a step in the right direction! Thanks for the print outs!

    • Thank you so much Hillary! For the kind words and for the advice! I will definitely look into Latergramme. I wouldn’t be surprised if a company like RewardStyle isn’t working on something similar in the background. Here’s hoping 🙂 I hope you find the printables helpful!

    • Hey, sorry about that. An updated version of Adobe is required to view the pdfs. So just make sure Adobe is updated on your computer and try again. If it still doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll email them to you 🙂

      Thanks!

  2. Hello! Absolutely brilliant! Thanks so much for the wonderful insight and beautiful presentation! I would humbly love to have your blog printables……I tried clicking on all the headers with no luck!
    I would really appreciate your time and assistance!

    • Madeleine,

      Check and see if you have Adobe on your computer since they are pdfs. If that doesn’t work, shoot me your email and I’ll send them to you 🙂

    • Thanks Lenae!

      I divide it by month with the the monthly blog brainstorming first, followed by weekly, then 2-3 blog post planners. I repeat that four times and then start over again with another monthly blog brainstorming page. I found a place that prints and binds for cheap and have ordered a proof. It might be cheaper for everyone to just order a pre-made planner 🙂 I’ll let you know how they turn out!

  3. I can’t tell you how glad I am to have found you! This is what I have been looking for, for YEARRRRRRS! I like pretty but I like clean, professional & minimal too… Your article here sounds like what my story is.. working full time but trying to build a fairly new blog. Trying to keep all of my social media up to date would continue to be tricky if not for this! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts. Take care! Chris

  4. Hi! Courtney
    I am Ana from Dominican Repúblic. I have been looking for a Blog Planner Template and I have not found a template that can fit on me. I saw your preview template but I’m not sure why I cant download free. I clicked the title but nothing happens. Can you help me or sent it by email?

    Thanks

    • Hi Ana! Thanks for reaching out. Do you have Adobe downloaded on your computer? It should be free. If not, shoot me your email address and I will send them to you 🙂

  5. Hi There, This is exactly what I needed! I have just started blogging and I know this will be a huge help, but for some reason I cant download it even though I have adobe.

    Please can you send it to me through my email. I would really appreciate it. 🙂

  6. First of all, these look amazing. I have seen so many blogging planners since starting my blog and I haven’t liked any of them enough to actually print out. I just printed all of these out, and I cant wait to start planning!! Yay for an organized blogging scehdule 🙂
