For months I’ve struggled to organize my thoughts for this space. Ideas, inspiration, and lines of prose are scattered about in tattered spirals and litter the kitchen counter in not-so-neat stacks. I’ve looked for a solution but haven’t quite found a planner to meet my need, so I decided to make a printable blog planner and share it with you. There are five pages in all. Each week is a two-page spread. You’ll print the first two pages (the ones with the days of the week) so that they face one another when they’re inserted into a three-ring binder.
The free planner includes:
- a weekly two-page spread with space to record the topic, sources, category, photography and other notes for each day’s post
- a long-range planning sheet to capture ideas and inspiration for future posts as it comes to mind. Record the topic, category, any sources you’d like to use, a potential post date, and a place to mark whether the post is “done” and ready for publishing.
- a schedule to keep track of link-ups you’d like to participate in
- a log to record usernames and passwords for online sites and tools that you use regularly
I’ve created the first three pages in two colorways: citrus (pictured above), and asparagus (below). Please note that the link-up schedule and the username and password log are in a separate document. When you first open it, it may appear that it won’t print correctly, but once you hit the PRINT button and it downloads as a PDF, it will print just fine.8****** ** ***
These free printable blog planners are for personal use only. If you’d like to share them, I’d be tickled, and you’re more than welcome to grab any of the images here for your post, so long as you link back to this post, and not directly to the PDF files. (Please, and thanks!) I hope you enjoy!
