Blog planning

In an effort to become a better blogger, I decided that I needed a planner make over. And by make over, I of course mean I needed a blog planner.

Previously I’d used a regular spiral bound notebook, but I couldn’t get a full week’s view, flipping pages is annoying, and ideas would get lost. Lately I’ve been making lists in my phone and on my desktop, but again I had no way of mapping anything out.

Enter: Google. I google image searched “blog planning,” and realized that people use an actual planner for this. Genius! But I’m not about to go drop mad dough on a planner. Plus, I can never find exactly what I’m looking for.

I think you can guess what happened next… I decided to make my own! I made a planner before, but it sort of fell apart going back and forth to work with me every day. And it’s too small for this. And I lost it.

I made my pages in Word and printed them on different colored card stock because I don’t like floppy paper. And I thought it would be fun to have a different color for each month. I was right!

Oh, but what’s that? The day squares are too small for the massive amounts of post-its I bought? I’ll have to custom-cut them down to size? That doesn’t sound involved at all!

Confetti for later!

Now I have a neat little planner! I’ll probably add some loose leaf paper in the back for expanded idea development, but for right now the monthly/ weekly breakdown was what I needed.

I filled in a lot of the ideas I had stored in my phone. I might not get to them all this month, especially if other things come up, but this way they won’t be forgotten.
