When I decided that I would focus more time and energy on my blog this year, I knew I would need a way to keep myself organized! There are so many free blogging planners out there, but the one I chose is the beautiful planner from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Opposite each calendar page (if you print it out front-to-back like I did) is a note page with space for information on reviews and giveaways, future post ideas, and your monthly blog stats.

I added some Martha Stewart NoteTabs* to make it easy to find the section I want instantly.
As I began to use my planner, I discovered there were one or two things it didn't have that I wanted. First, I needed a place to record any income/outcome related to my blog. Right now I am not making any money of significance from my blog (only about $1 a day from the AdSense ads), but maybe someday I will and I would like to have a system in place to track that. Also, I would like a place to record relevant Twitter hashtags and any link-ups I might like to participate in. Pages for both of these are available in the Additional Planning Helps section of Homeschool Creations free blog planner, so I printed out just those pages and added them to my planner. I haven't come across the need for anything else!
Did I happen to mention that this planner is completely free? Sometimes getting organized takes a bit of money, but not this time!
