Do you want to double or triple your productivity as a blogger?
Start actually using an editorial calendar and goal-setting method and stick to it?
Use a system for each blog post that will ensure it’s written in an evergreen, SEO and Pinterest-ready way?
Then grab your coffee and keep reading. I’ve got a really sweet printable blog planner you need to hear about.
There came a point in my blogging career where I realized that I felt “busy” all the time, but that the busy didn’t necessarily translate into productivity.
You know the feeling: You are doing a thousand things every day but never feel like you are *actually* growing your blogging biz. I knew I needed a concrete tool for myself to stay on track with my task list, streamline my systems, and keep myself organized.
I had a traditional agenda that was pretty, but I wasn’t actually using it. The design wasn’t laid out for a blogger. I tried to use a google calendar for my blog stuff but I never really liked having to look at it online. I was constantly making hand-written to-do lists, brainstorming, and trying to set goals on random sheets of paper, because my agenda didn’t have any dedicated space for it. And I couldn’t track any of my blog growth or other blogging-specific info, since there wasn’t a spot for it.
I kept feeling like there were important things I wanted to write down or keep in one spot, and I didn’t have the right tool to do it.
So, I created it for myself.
I designed a printable planner that is dedicated specifically to growing a blogging business. There is an editorial calendar. There is a goal setting section. There is an audit tool that works like a checklist for each blog post before you hit publish. There is a section for tracking social stats and blog growth. Contact sheets. A blog post brainstorm sheet. And SO.MUCH.MORE.
There are 300+ pages in the planner, divided up into 6 main sections.
Ever since I printed out my first version, there literally hasn’t been a day that I don’t use it. It sits on my desk right beside my computer. I can glance over and know exactly what’s on my calendar for the week, exactly what I need to be working on to reach my goals, and so much more.
Because it’s date-less, you can just re-print the planner every single year. Win!
Plus, did I mention it’s pretty?!
It’s got a whole lot of black and white gorgeous-ness going on.
And since I couldn’t settle on just one, there are multiple cover page options, and even a whole bunch of cute art printables for your workspace!
In terms of printing – don’t stress. It’s super easy.
There are detailed instructions on how to print included in the purchase, but basically you just print the planner on standard 8.5 x 11 white paper, in black and white, then have it ring-bound by your local Staples Copy & Print Centre. The whole thing cost me under $35 to have printed and bound. Super reasonable!
Because the calendar section of the planner doesn’t actually have any dates, it means you can use the planner year after year, without ever having to buy a new one!
Here are what a few folks are saying…
“With pieces of note papers everywhere, to-do lists and blog post ideas swirling around in my head, I’ve been looking for a good system to capture it all in one place. Not only did this planner help me to get organized, but included in it are extremely helpful tips and templates to take our blogging to the next level, such as ones for blog post brainstorming and short- and long-term goal-setting. I highly recommend this valuable resource.” – Jane (& Sonja), Sustain My Craft Habit
“Gemma’s blogger planner was EXACTLY what I needed to help me develop and stick to my blogging strategies. Anything that could be added to this planner is in there and I now depend on it daily. A blogger planner isn’t something that you can really appreciate until you have tried it and now there’s no turning back for me! This planner meets my needs, is super chic, and the price can’t be beaten. Thank you for thinking of it all, Gemma!”– Amy, AmyHowardSocial.com
“I honestly didn’t think I’d benefit from a blog planner. I have an editorial calendar system that is rocking BUT I’ve struggled to keep all the information a blogger needs in order. Affiliate spreadsheets, brand contacts, and social stats? Come on! And goals? I couldn’t even remember where I’d written them down to see if I’d met them. It is such a lifesaver to have all this information in one place and looking beautiful. Thank you Gemma for changing the way I look at blog planning!” – Colleen, LemonThistle.com
