Blog Planner Printables ~ Organize Your Blog Planning

Blog Planner



Maybe you need a little help organizing your blog with upcoming post ideas, reviews, and all the expenses that can go along with running a site. Years ago I created a free blog planner that has been a huge help to me and many other. The planner itself is undated so it can be used year after year, but recently I updated the yearly calendar page for my readers as well and thought it would be great to reshare.

Would you like a peek inside my blog planner?

Printable Blog Planner To make a blog planner similar to mine you will need the following supplies:

      BlogPlannerCollage

I use a Mead flexible binder that is a cross between a 3 ring binder and a plastic covered composition notebook. The binder gives me plenty of room to expand and can also use pockets and dividers that fit in a typical 3 ring binder. The planner is set up to print front/back and is not dated, so you can use it from year to year. Each month there is a month-at-a-glance calendar with room underneath to note the most important things to do.

Blog Planner photos-1-3

I use monthly calendar to give me a quick snapshot overview and see if there are things I need to move or add in. The facing page has room to track giveaways and/or reviews. I like having all of the company info in one spot {contact info, important links, due dates, etc…} along with space to check off when it is completed. I typically try not to schedule more than 2 reviews or giveaways in a month, but have room for three…just in case!

There is also additional space to jot down extra notes {Note: I custom divided this area in mine to keep track of any sponsors/advertisers that I have for the month}. Along the sides of the planner, I use Avery Write-on Tabs to label the months in the planner, so I can quickly flip to those months if needed.

Weekly Blog Planner Layout-1

Having the weeks at a glance is also really helpful to me, so I have two pages that lay flat and give me space to track posts and see them laid out weekly. Each post area also has social media reminders for me to check off {Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+}. Sometimes my brain just needs a few added reminders!

Blog Planner photos-1-2 There are a few months that need more than 4 weeks of layouts, and for those weeks, I printed a few extra sheets of the weekly layouts, cut them in half, 3 hole-punched them and added them into those months that needed them. Blog Planner Extras Toward the back of the blog planner there are planning pages to help you with any additional details you may want to track {and maybe even a few you hadn’t thought of yet!}. Overall, this 66 page blog planner includes:

  • 12 month-at-a-glance pages with a monthly focus list
  • room to track reviews and giveaways
  • space to jot notes and ideas
  • weekly post trackers, including social media reminders
  • yearly goals and objectives
  • monthly website analytics tracker: RSS, Facebook, Twitter, etc…
  • a place to keep track of affiliate program info
  • a Twitter hashtag tracker {because there are lots!
  • Google communities and hangout tracker
  • Pinterest Group boards tracker
  • Periscope users and scopes to follow tracker
  • Instagram hashtag tracker
  • weekly blog meme tracker
  • mileage sheet {who thought blogging might involve driving?}
  • website username & password sheet {I can’t remember them all!}
  • and room to jot down all those wonderful post ideas

March 2018 Planning Pages – Free Printable

Here comes March! I don’t know how your year has been going, but February seems to have been flying by. 

School has been keeping us busy, along with a swim meet, volunteering, and a weekly evening service our church has been holding. The kids and I have all been helping with childcare, which makes the weeks go by even more quickly. Add in co-op classes and life, and good grief. 

I’m hoping March has a little more breathing room. 

We’ve also had crazy-fickle weather here! We go from 70 degree days to ice/snow closing down everything only two days later. (Today we are relishing the 80 degree temps and the kids are outdoors bouncing around). 

Even though it’s not the start of the year, maybe you’d like to get organized along with me in March. To help you out, I have a free download of my March 2018 Personal Planner Pages – try them out this month and see how they work for you.  

A Peek Inside My Planner

If you’d like to take a look at how I’ve set up my yearly planner, I’ve explained it more in this post here, as well as given links to my favorite binder and colorful tabs (because pretty makes life fun too, right?).

This year I’ve done a little something different and pulled my planner out of the binder and had it spiral bound at Staples. It has worked wonderfully and I love it this way!!

Don’t Miss The Daily To-Do List

Daily to do list free printable

 
My Daily To-Do List is pretty basic, but hopefully it will work for you too. There is an area to make a list of things to accomplish, household goals, appointment, meals for the day, and even a space to record exercise and water intake. Each page in the document is identical so you can print them off, cut the page in half, and have two lists. If you print them front to back, you’ll have four to-do lists and save a little paper.

Hope you all have a wonderful month!! I’d love to hear your plans!

 

February 2018 Planner Pages – Free Printable

Has your new year been off to a great start? 

Our school year is getting back on track and I have to tell you, it feels wonderful to be back into our routine and have some semblance of order! We’ve had some cold weather in our area this month, which means hunkering down with blankets and books, but it’s also meant some purging in the house (when I feel warm enough to emerge from the cozy warmth!). 

Menu plans and budgets are getting lined up, and even though there has been a lot to do, it just feels so much like things are falling back into place. I’ve been working on a new daily to-do list printable that I can’t wait to share with you (it doesn’t seem right to share it if I haven’t used it for a bit first, right?).

If you’d like to get organized along with me in February, you can download the February 2018 Personal Planner Pages and try them out this month. I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming days.

January 2018 Planner Pages – Free Printable

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family! 

Our break has been relaxing so far. Lots of time spent curled up on the couch, putting puzzles together, and visiting with family. We will be spending the last few days of 2017 with Rick’s family – essentially FREEZING since the temperatures have dropped into single digits (and below).

December kept us busy for sure – so many fun parties and time with friends and January will be the time to clean up the house and get everything back in order and on track for the upcoming year. If you’d like to get organized along with me, you can download the January 2018 Personal Planner Pages and try them out this month. I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming days.

December 2017 Planner Pages – Free Printable

DECEMBER IS IN A FEW DAYS, PEOPLE!!

You know how long the year seems on the first of January, and then suddenly you are scrambling to grab the things you need last minute for Christmas. Yeah, that’s about where I’m at right now. 

We still have some school to wrap up for this month before we take a break, but hopefully we will be able to get it all in before my hubby has his vacation time. As much as we try, it’s so hard to work on anything when he is home (and he reads my blog and is likely nodding his head in agreement). For us, that means a good solid three weeks (maybe three and a half depending on cooperation levels) and then we have a nice break and some travel days planned in as well. 

Laurianna will be wrapping up her first semester’s classes at the community college in two weeks, so it will be nice to have her home a bit more, at least until her next round of classes start in January. Again – time is flying and I can’t believe she is just four class periods shy of completing her two classes. It’s really been exciting for both of us and a great learning experience! 

Needless to say, December is a great month to feel like I am on top of things, especially with all the social events that are coming up as well.  If you’d like to get organized along with me, you can download the December 2017 Personal Planner Pages and try them out this month. I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming days.

November 2017 Planner for Mom – Free Printable

Can you believe that we are in the final stretch of 2017? Someone mentioned how many days there are until Christmas and I had to look again – it’s crazy how much time we seem to have at the start of the year, and yet how quickly it seems to have gone by! 

November is shaping up to be crazy-town in our house. McKenna is in the last few weeks of preparing for her performance in Les Miserables and she begins full performances on November 12th (her 15th birthday). We have family coming in from out of town to see the musical and then another visit from more family the week of Thanksgiving. 

Kaleb also has his First Lego League competition and life continues on in every other area – but it will be fun! I’m really hoping to get some meals made ahead of time too, especially as we head into performance week, otherwise we are going to be feeling the crazy! 

For the blog I’m working on a few printables: a few preschool printables and finishing an update on the Yearly Planner, as well as a daily “to-do” list (simplified). 

If you’d like to get organized along with me, you can download the November 2017 Personal Planner Pages and try them out this month. I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming days.
