As most of you know, I’m obsessed with organizing. In fact, I’ve rearranged my desk twice this week alone. And I’m always on the look out for a blog planner. Not that I’m not happy with what I have, it’s just seems like it’s just not quite right.
I got a blog post update email the other day, from one of my favorite blogs: Confessions of a Homeschooler. In this post, Erica disclosed that she had made a colorful blog planner in addition to her other floral planners. I already used some of the pages in her floral planner, but I needed something a bit simpler. Don’t get me wrong her floral planners are gorgeous. But the layout wasn’t what I really needed.
So I was ecstatic when I got this email, and even more so when I got to her site and saw the new planner!
Although it doesn’t have everything I would like in a blog planner, it has still become the main source for all my blogging pages. I do supplement with another planner I found (created by Jolanthe at Home School Creations) that has a biweekly page that I find has more room for planning daily posts, and thankfully the colors actually compliment each other pretty well. Erica’s new planner just looks awesome with my colorful dividers! 😀
The best part is that it actually matches my weekly to-do planner page that I got from I Heart Organizing! It’s awesome! The only thing that would be better would be if Erica and Jen created a blog planner together. Oh that would be heaven!
Okay, so I’m sure you’re all wondering what it looks like right? Thought so, I’ll stop teasing you now. Here are a few shots from my rearranged blog planner:
Erica came out with a 2014 blog planner as well, and it has weekly pages instead of the monthly sheet. It’s awesome, so be sure to check out Erica’s website Confessions of a Homeschooler, if you want the 2014 version.
While I was writing this post, I changed some of the planner pages in my other tabs. I was using various planners for each blog (since I manage four), but I liked this combination so much, that I wanted to use it for all of my blogs. Thankfully, I only print out two months at a time, and it was time to print new ones for July and August, so I didn’t waste any pages (Greg would have killed me…) I had a lot of fun putting the rest of the planner back together, and after my neuroscience test tomorrow, I’ll be spending time planning the next week’s posts! Oh I can’t wait!!
