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!
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).
Once I have all of my posts lined out for the month I make my to do list. I divide it up into 4 sections:
– 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).
Also included in my planner are a stat tracker as well as a monthly income tracker:
