Do you need help being better organized with your blog?
I surely do, and so I began searching for a planner to help me get a handle on scheduling posts and gettting the word out, and all that goes with it.
When I was given the link to Homeschool Creations, I was a bit excited. I clicked on the link to Jolanthe Erb’s Yearly Blog Planner (Plan-her is the actual way she has named it…we’ll get to why later) and this is what I saw:
Jolanthe offers this for FREE, and what a deal it is. Firstly, the Planner is especially girlie (hence the name “Plan-her”) with feminine and colorful graphics, making it inviting for any female blogger to use right away. In addition to a lovely cover page, the planner includes many helpful features. There is a “Year at a Glance” page which gives you a 12-month overview of the past year and the current one. Blank monthly pages are provided so that you can fill it it for any particular month in any particular year. At the bottom of the page, there is a place to list your focus (foci) for the month in terms of your blogging steps and goals. These pages are printable so that you can punch holes in them and put them in your own 3-ring binder.
Since reviews and giveaways can be a vital part of any blogger’s schedule, the Yearly Blog Planner includes pages to list them and their due dates and pertinent information to keep you on target. The last set of pages breaks down tasks week by week and gives a To Do list for that particular week. Jolanthe also provides checkboxes to mark your SEO – how you have posted and gotten the word out through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others.
And if all that isn’t enough to keep you organized, the Yearly Blog Planner includes a section called Additional Planning Helps:
This section has places to track such things as website analytics, affiliate programs, link-ups, and so on. There is even room to jot down creative ideas about your blog that are rolling around in your head!
Getting to use the Yearly Blog Planner has been a godsend. It is uncomplicated yet thorough in its scope, and I am much more organized in my approach to my blog. In addition, I feel feminine and powerful as I plan! Jolanthe really does cover most (if not all) of what you need to track regularly with your blog to be successful, and she does it without the planner being overwhelming and weighing you down. Her modular design makes it easy to keep up and do it with style.
Concluding thoughts: this planner is attractive, feminine, user friendly, thorough, functional, free, and usable for every year. Grade: A+
