The secret to being a productive and organized blogger (includes free printable blog planner)

I am often asked the secret to being a productive and organized blogger.  So, today I am sharing my blogging schedule with you so that you don’t feel like your blog is taking over your life!  I am also including a free printable blog planner – the system I use to stay on top of my game!

The secret to being a productive and organized blogger

Late in the month I am writing up my editorial calendar for the next month.  Brainstorming ideas and then actually plugging them into the Editorial Calendar WordPress plugin.  These are two of the printables that I use to brainstorm post ideas and then to make sure that I am posting under all of my desired topics each month (you can download all printables by accessing The Archives at the bottom of this post).

– To buy

– To design

– To photograph

– To write

For those 10 posts (2 week’s worth) I determine what needs to be done.

On Monday, I will run all errands and gather supplies for recipes or projects

On Tuesday, I will sit down and design any printables or fashion/gift boards

On Wednesday, I will photograph and edit any photos that I will need for those posts

On Thursday, I write 5 posts (pretty easy to do once I have all of the photos ready to go

On Friday, I will sit down and write the remaining 5 posts

I use this free printable daily docket to keep track of my daily tasks (there is a non-blogger version available as well).
