2012 Blog Post Planner

I’ve been scouring the internet for some kind of blog post planner to help me organize my posts, ideas, reviews, giveaways. And I mean, it had to be pretty right? Sadly I haven’t found one that has exactly what I’m after, so I made one and wanted to share it with any of you out there looking for a planner too!

Introducing the 2012 Blog Post Planner!


Monthly Planner Page One:

Each month has a different color scheme and two information pages with it. The first page is a month layout. The dates are listed along the left side of the sheet, then there is room for the Topic or Title of your post, and Category/Tag (In Blogger, these are called Labels).  Next to that are little check boxes to note if the post is a review and/or giveaway. There is also a winner box so that I can check that once my winner is selected and an email has been sent to them along with a post created. That way I won’t forget to pick my winners!



Next are social media check boxes, one for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. I check those to indicate that my post has been shared to all of my social media outlets.


Monthly Planner Page Deux:

The second page of each month has a spot for review details. This is where I add the due date of the post, the vendor, product, and product pricing. This helps me to keep reviews scheduled and not commit to anything that I can’t deliver! It also helps me keep track of product prices for my taxes.


This page also has a spot for post ideas so that in the event I have an epiphany, I can quickly jot down my idea for the month here so it’s not lost in all of the information swirling around in my head. I seem to have a finite amount of space up there these days!

I had mine spiral bound so it is easy to flip back and forth. It was only a few dollars to get it done at Office Depot, and they even put on a clear plastic cover just to help protect it.



And that’s it! I find that keeping my planner handy is the best way for me to keep all of my ideas and posts organized!

I hope the blog post planner can help some of you! If you have any suggestions on making it better, feel free to shoot me an email or leave a comment, I’d love to hear suggestions!

Happy Blogging!

    Love it! I am working on my very own blog planner too! But, I am really liking how you put yours together! 😉

    Wow! Thank you, I have been thinking about finding something like this, but haven’t had the time. Thank you for making it available. I may just have to blog about it. 🙂

    By the way you mention something in your post that I didn’t quite understand “It also helps me keep track of product prices for my taxes.” As I am fairly new to the blog world and since it is TAX season I was hoping you could explain this.

    If it is easier you can email me at yvana261@gmail.com

      I had a question about that too, can you reply on here or send me an email. Thanks, I love the design and I was just looking for something similar to this!

      Hi, yes you have to claim your review products as income on your taxes. I run everything through my business, so it’s not personal. I just use the retail price for each product. I keep them in an excel spreadsheet for each year. I use my blog planner to add them as I go.

    Perfect! I have been looking for something just like this. Thanks for sharing 🙂
