I have an unhealthy obsession with office supplies and items to keep me organized. Matching pens, stickers, notepads (and everything else) always find a way in to my physical or virtual cart. I know I am not alone in this, right? Obsession aside, I have found that the best way to keep my blog organized is to use a planner. A few years ago, Anne introduced me to Plum Paper Designs and I’ve been using their planners ever since. It can be customized, which makes it the Ultimate Blog Planner in my world!
I should start by saying that because these are made to order, you can use it as a blog planner, family planner, or even a teacher planner. The options are endless! There are pages and pages of designs to choose from. I chose this one because it brings my two loves together – purple and polka dots.
The first thing you’ll need to do is decide which month you want to start in. That’s the best part – you don’t need to wait until January to begin using this planner! Next, you’ll need to choose what tabs you want. You can choose up to seven. You can see what I’ve chosen above – these work best for me, but you might want something different!
One of my favorite parts of Plum Paper Designs is that you can add a Blog Section, which will be towards the back of your planner. It includes some great planning and tracking pages:
1 – Giveaways & Reviews. You can use this for sponsored posts or giveaways you host or are a part of.
2 – Income and Expenses. It’s always a great idea to keep track of what you earn and spend your blog money on.
3 – Post Ideas. I keep an ongoing list of these in my phone, but every once and awhile write them here too so everything is all together.
4 – Advertising & Sponsors. If you have a sponsorship program, this is a great place to keep track of your sponsors!
And this next section is probably my favorite because I can watch the growth, month to month and week to week:
I love having everything blog related in one spot. Do you use a planner? If so, which one? I highly recommend Plum Paper Designs if you are looking for a personalized, ultimate blog planner!
*For the record, this is not a sponsored post. I just really love their product!
