Blog Summary – At the beginning of your planner is a blog summary page, I refer to this page often especially when chatting to potential advertisers, I introduce myself with my elevator pitch (a short summary used to quickly and simply define your blog, ie. you can explain to somebody what your blog is about in the amount of time you would share an elevator with them), have my blog statistics and advertising rates easily at hand.  I also include a list of colours I use regularly on my blog, I keep the html code here for when I create graphics and want to use a specific colour.

To-do Lists – Put these pages at the front of the planner as you will often access them.

  • DAILY TASKS – I have a list of particular tasks I like to do each day, such as promote blog post on facebook, pin to pinterest, reply to comments etc.  This page would be handy to put on the wall next to your computer.
  • BLOG TO DO LIST – use this list for ideas of tasks you want to complete for your blog eg. change icon in sidebar, create a page to promote new product.
  • WEEKLY TO-DO LIST – use this page, to priorities what tasks you would like to complete each week.
  • DEADLINES – Use this page to write down deadlines, ie, reviews or sponsored posts you need to send to client by specific date.  You could also use your monthly calendar instead of this page.

Monthly Calendar – I like brainstorm blog post ideas and plan all my posts in advance.  I use the monthly calendar pages with a pencil and write down post ideas (only one blog post per day) or use the annual pages for something similar.

Post Planning Pages

  • BLOG POST IDEAS – list down all the fantastic post ideas you have, then when you are stuck for content you can refer back to your ideas page to help promote you to create a blog post.
  • BLOG POST IDEA – This is a single page to help you plan out a specific blog post idea. Noting down the key points, tasks to do to assist in writing the blog posts and an area notes.  You will also find a projects page, with more area to write down specific tasks you need to complete.
  • {close up blog post ideas}
  • DAILY TOPICS – I use the daily topics page to plan which topics I will write about on specific days, for example, I always post my meal planning posts on Monday, cleaning tips on a Tuesday and prefer to run my giveaways on a friday, use this page to create some structure to your blogging.
  • LINK PARTIES – many bloggers like to link up to parties, us this page to write down the list of websites that host the parties and the days they are published, use this to remind you to link up.
  • TOP 5 & 10 LIST – use these pages to brainstorm blog post ideas.  Ie. Top 5 destinations I would love to travel.  Top 10 craft tips.  etc
  • Guest Post Wish List – use this page to write down all the blogs you would like to guest post on, the idea you have for the post, the date you emailed the blogger with details of your post idea and then the icing on the cake, the date the post was published with a big tick for your achievement.

Weekly Blog Schedule – Once I have planned out my post ideas and the day to publish them, I go into more detail in the weekly blog schedule.  Here I write

  • blog title
  • brainstorm the key points about the blog
  • and in the notes section photo ideas
  • place a big tick when I have scheduled the blog post
  • tick that I have optimised the blog for seo
  • and finally use the promote area that I have shared it on social media

The weekly blog schedule is in its own file so you can easily access and print the dates you need.

Daily and Weekly Planning Pages – DAILY PLANNER – Use the daily planner to plan your days or create your best time management strategy, ie from 9-9.30 check emails, 9.30-10 check social media, 10-11 comment on other blogs, 11-1 write blog post etc.

  • WEEKLY PLANNER – similar to the daily planner, you can use this instead to plan your week.  ie. Whilst I am routined in my blogging days, there are some days I do tasks differently.  For example, I usually have quite a few emails on a Monday, so I block out a big chunk to ensure I have enough time to get through them.  Plus I need to ensure I create time in my schedule to look after myself and exercise.
  • SOCIAL MEDIA SCHEDULE – Plan your posts, determine the best time strategy for publishing blog posts on social media. The best way create a schedule is to see the peak times your readers are online.  To do this go to your facebook page > insights > posts > and then you will see the times graph.

Blog Statistics – Record your monthly statistics, it’s good to often review and compare. If there has been a spike or reduction in numbers review that months content and determine why, if your stats decreased perhaps your readers were not interested in that topic, or do it differently next time and if there was a spike you’ve hit a winner and should create a follow up series of blog posts.

Finances

  • EXPENSES AND INCOME – Track all your expenses and income together in one place.  In the early years I used the pages in this planner to keep on top of all my finances, but I know use an accounting program Xero to help me with this now.  However if you are a beginner blogger these pages will work really well for you.
  • AFFILIATE PROGRAMS- affiliate programs are a great way to earn more income, use this page to track which programs you have signed up to and ensure that you receive payment each month.

Advertising, Reviews & Giveaways  We LOVE sponsors, they help us to run the blog, pay hosting expenses and earn a little income. I have included the following pages so you can track:

  • reviews and giveaways
  • sidebar advertisers
  • brand wish list – tick or cross the box to mark if they have accepted or declined to work with you.

Blog Maintenance Log- It’s really important to keep a log of any changes that you make to your blog, just in case it crashes you know exactly what may have caused this.

  • maintenance log
  • list of plugins
  • password log

Conference – There is a variety of blogging conference held each year in Australia, my favourite would have to be the ProBlogger Event.  Use these pages to work out the total cost of attending a conference and detail if you can get sponsors and what you will give those sponsors in exchange for financial help for you to attend the event.  In my early years of blog I received conference sponsorship and in exchange I offered a sponsored blog post and sidebar advertising over a period of a few months.  Pages in this section include

  • what to take to a conference checklist
  • conference notes, key points and take home tasks to do for each speaker
  • sponsorship details
  • add in a plastic sleeve or folder in this section to add in your flight and conference tickets, please note this is not included

Divider pages  You will find a few blank pages in the file, this is so you can print double-sided easily.  I have made many of the pages open to you can view a week at a glance.  So to ensure these worked properly along with the divider pages I have placed quotes throughout so you turn the divider page and instead of seeing a blank page you can be inspired with a quote, turn page and have your week at a view.

And more

  • cover page, I have provided a cover page with 2015, 2016 and without a year.
  • product and ebook ideas
  • product sales tracker
  • goals – For all the plans you have for the future of your blog, the ideas you would like to achieve.  I have included monthly goal pages, along with long-term goal pages.
  • procedures manual – I am so forgetful, I often do things on my blog and then forget how to do it next time, these blank pages are great for writing down step by step how you do particular tasks.
  • mistakes made – note down lessons you have learned
  • webinar Notes – write down key points and tasks to do from a webinar you listened to.
  • features – record all the things you should be proud of, guest posts, blog mentions, magazine articles etc.
  • address book – keep all your PR, Brand and other contact all in one place
