A very important part of having a blog is having a plan. Today I am sharing my printable blog planner and tools!
Click on this folder link to access everything in my folder.
Please note that I am sharing copies of what I use. You are welcome to make copies but I do ask that you do not share or sell this work. You can direct people to my blog if you wish and for that, I am grateful! Okay onto the good stuff!
2014 Printable Blog Planner
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
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.
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 This is slightly outdated but it gives a good example of my layout.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.
