Blog Planner

I have recently been trying to organize my blogging, and increase my daily views and revenue so I decided to create a planner - with free printables I have made (or found)



The first thing I needed was a calendar to schedule my posts. I have currently decided to post twice a week on Mondays and Thursday and slowly increase it as my schedule allows.

You can find a round-up of 2015 free printable calendars.

 And I want to try to get all my holiday and seasonal posts out a couple weeks before the holiday starts to get maximum exposure. So I have written all the major holidays down on my calendar in pink and schedules all my posts around them and fill in the rest as I go along or come up with ideas that I think will work.

I also wanted a title page - it's not exactly necessary but it is pretty and I couldn't really find any so I created a couple of my own:

You can download the free pink 2015 Blog Planner here.

Or there is also a 2015 Blue Blog Planner if you would prefer.



Next I wanted somewhere to track my page views - so I can see which efforts are working (and which are not)

I want to track my social media followers and increase them every month.

I need to keep track of which posts I have shared at all the link parties I attend.

I also need to track my revenue.

And somewhere to keep track of my passwords. I love the free printables from the Harmonized House Project - free for download at WorldLabel which has all the printables I wanted {excluding the link party tracker}

And Katie over at Made to be a Momma offers 5 free blog printables including this contributor list so you can keep track of all your guest blog posts.

And I found a cute link party planner over at My May Sunshine so you can keep track of which posts you linked up to which parties.

Also I created a Pinterest Tracker because I like to share my posts throughout the week on all my various personal and group boards instead of pinning the same post 6 to 8 times in one night. You can download the Pinterest Tracker here - the lines are solid although they don't look like it in the image.

Pinterest Tracker

You can write your posts on the left and your boards across the top - you may need two or three copies if you have a ton of boards and then write the date you posted, a check mark or write the number of re-pins you received from each pin - whatever you prefer.

I also like this free printable from Thirty Handmade Days - available in vertical or horizontal views because it has a complete schedule of the week, month and future post ideas all on one sheet.




And you can buy a matching Blog Planner binder on Zazzle:
Also available in blue or with the current year - written in script.

 
Do you have any other printables you included in your blog planner??? Or did you have tips on organizing your blog planning - I would love to hear them.
