My Blog Planner Evolution (Before and After)

Blogging can be so much fun but as a business, you need all the organization and help you can get. That’s why I love using a blog planner.

As I’ve mentioned before, when I first started blogging I had no idea what was blogging really about, so my Organization was nil. I was completely lost in blogland and I had just found out about link parties so visiting some links I ran across My May Sunshine, a lovely blogger that was featuring her blog planner.

Oh! my life got so much better LOL. She made an awesome job, she made sheets for every aspect of blogging and I found it awesome!… The best part was that IT WAS A FREE PRINTABLE yayyyy.

Update March, 2020: I have created my own blog planner now, it’s filled with colorful and meaningful sheets to make your blogging journey a lot easier. You can check out my blog planner details here.

My Blog Planner Evolution!

 My First Blog Planner

I decided to give it a shot and I downloaded most of them and since those were her designs with her brand colors and patterns, I modified them a bit so I could use my brand design and colors.

The thing is that she didn’t have all the planner sheets I felt I needed so I started downloading planner sheets from different blogs which was fun for a little while but I really like having things neat.

I have to confess that for a second I thought I might not keep up with it, but the truth is that I use it every day. =D

So, want to see how my blog planner worked for me?

Here is what I did:

Firstly, I bought a cute binder, so I could keep everything in one place.

Then I printed and cut some cute tags (the tags design are from Delicious Scraps) one with my brand and other one with “My blog planner”.

My-Blog-Planner-05

With transparent contact paper I stuck the tag to the binder on the front and on the spine.

Also I bought a pencil pouch and made a couple of holes with my punch to put it in the binder. =D.

These are some of the planners I use:

I also was using:

  • Blog To Do List
  • Blog Ideas
  • Blog Sponsors/Advertising
  • Weekly Blog Stats Tracker
  • Monthly Blog Stats Tracker (this one is mine)
  • Blog Finance Income
  • Blog Finance Expenses

I can really say that this helps A LOT to keep your mind healthy LOL. Organization is the best way to optimize time and your blog. This way I know what I posted and when as well as where I promoted them. Also, keep up with finances and stats.

I really recommend this kind of organization which is why I decided to create my own with all the sheets and features I find useful to stay focused, organized and on track at all times.

My New and Improved Blog Planner

My New blog Planner is all upgraded and covers all sides of blogging as it has grown and evolved.

I understood that if I organize and plan everything ahead, I have more time for other things.  And that as the blogging world grows, also should my organization and planning.

The best part?

Keeping my business organized, I even got to plan my “me time” or social time LOL.

Am I too control freak?

Yeah, I think so too!

After many years using and improving my blog planner, I thought this planner could help so many other bloggers like me.

So now you can have it too!

    Love this idea and have downloaded all the printables to make one myself! Would love to be able to use your printables though – do you have them posted anywhere?

    HI Camilla,

    I love my blog planner too! I couldn’t imagine NOT having it! I use a post it note system while I’m planning the posts and then when they are scheduled I write them in pen. Would love for you to hook up at my parties!

    Oh my, I have to say that I just LOVE your organizational skills!! I struggle with digital planning and feel the constant need to manually write things down and cross them off and use different coloured pens… it’s fun, isn’t it? I’m hopping over to see those printables now, so thank you!

  10. Camila

    Adorable! You are so organized. I’m a teacher, and I’m not even that organized in my day job…there’s no way I could maintain it for my blog. Looks like I have to step it up ;) Thanks for the inspiration!

    I found you on TGIF Link Party by Living Better Together and I’m gonna browse your blog a bit more!

    Have a great week!

    Great idea to have your pencil case in there as well !

  13. Camila

    Wow, I’m so impressed Camila! I love that you’re not only organized, but organized in STYLE. Your blog planning binder makes the teacher in me swoon! And while I recently switched from paper planning to digital planning, there is something to be said for being able to physically cross things off a list with a marker. I love it! Thanks for sharing your method with us.

    Warmly,
