I’ll let you guys in on something about me: I crave organization. Notice I said I crave it which means its something that I don’t usually have. But yet I try. Also, if I’m going to get anything done, I have to write it out on paper. Even with all this technology, I still have to write things down. And planning my blog content is no different. Two years ago I create a blog planner, however, when I used up all the pages I switched to the Erin Condren life planners. It was great but expensive so when it ended I just winged it and honestly my blog suffered because of the lack of planning. So this weekend, I made a content organizer to assist me in creating an editorial calendar and here is how I did it.
Letter size paper 8.5 by 11 sheet of chipboard
Scrapbook paper Mod Podge
Paper Cutter or scissors Hole Puncher
Xacto Knife Ruler
Blog Content Planner & Organizer Template
- Print the template on letter sized paper (I printed on the front & back to cut down on paper) then cut paper in half using a paper cutter or scissors.
- Use the Xacto knife and ruler to cut the chipboard in half. Then decorate the chipboard using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge.
- Punch holes in the paper & chipboard then bind with album rings.
