2014 Printable Blog Planner

2014 Blog Planner Printable

This is a pretty basic planner but if you print them out and keep it in your binder, it will be helpful!

In my blog planner:

  • Goals ~ One of the main reasons of a planner is to plan ahead.
  • Contacts ~ Keep track of your prime contacts.
  • Link Parties ~ Keep track of where you link to most often.
  • Logins ~ Keep track of logins and passwords.
  • Analytics ~ Keep track of your monthly pageviews and your top referral sites.

 Blog Income & Expense Tracker w/ Taxes & Savings Calculations

A blog income and expense tracker that you can input your earned income into and it will calculate savings and taxes.

One of my favorite tools is my income and expense tracker. The first tab helps me keep track of payments I am owed for commitments on my blog. The second tab is taxes and savings. This is where I can input the money I make then it automatically calculates what I need to put aside for taxes and what I need to save. The last tab keeps track of the money I spend on things like conferences and tools for blogging.

Editorial Calendar

Google Doc Editorial Calendar for the blog

This is pretty simple, it is an editorial calendar to keep track of what I am doing each day. It helps me plan to make sure that I don’t fall short of content as well!

The last thing I am sharing in this folder is my media kit. This is  slightly outdated but it gives a good example of my layout. I personally love having mine in Google docs because I can easily share it and edit it when needed.

Not sure how to make a copy of these Google Docs?

  1. Click on “File”
  2. Click on “Make Copy”
  3. Save to your Google Docs then edit as needed

I was recently asked to share how I am taking back my mornings with Seattle’s Best coffee. So a little back story to this is that taking back my mornings is something I have been doing my best to work at because I am not a morning person. Not at all. So usually I’m hitting the snooze button about 3-4 times and moving at a snail’s pace. Mornings are just not for me and if it wasn’t for coffee I probably wouldn’t make it through a morning!  To help take back my mornings so that I’m ready to start my day early I’ve been working at completing a checklist with the kids every night before we go to bed.

Our checklist includes:

  • Having homework done and put away
  • Backpacks ready to go by the door
  • Lunches Packed
  • Showers done the night before
  • Keys in the “ready” spot (because sometimes I misplace them)
  • Clothes laid out and ready to go
  • Coffee programmed for the morning
To help keep us on track, I created a printable checklist:
A few other things I’m doing for myself to take back my mornings:
  • Enjoy coffee with my iPad to check the latest overnight happenings
  • Go running after taking the kids to the bus stop
  • Popping in a load of laundry and doing a quick sweep of the house so I don’t have to look at it with angst later
Speaking of coffee, I needed to stock up on more coffee so I went to my local Walmart Neighborhood market to grab a couple bags of Seattle’s Best and 2 bags of pod coffee for my single serve coffee maker.
I love a medium brew coffee, nothing too dark and nothing too light. This was a perfect blend for me!

Did you know you could share how you are taking back your mornings and try your luck at winning a bag of Seattle’s Best coffee instantly? It’s true! Even if you don’t win, you will still receive a $1.50 off printable coupon.
