Good morning! I was filling out some information for my blog the other day, and needed to write something in for January 2016. It was then that it dawned on me that 2015 was almost over! Which also means that it’s time for a brand new blog planner! So for all of you bloggers out there, my new 2016 Blog Planner is now available! YAY!
And it’s FREE!
So if you’re ready to get going for the new year, keep reading!
As you can see above I went with the calendar layout for this planner and added some extra info on the opposing page. It includes Monthly Statistics, websites and inspiration, post ideas and notes, tweets, pinterest pins, and additional notes.
Print & Assemble:
After downloading, I print the planner double-sided by printing the odd pages starting with page 1. Then flip the pages and print the even pages on the backs.
I print on a light weight cardstock (meaning the cheapest one I could find), just to give the planner a little more durability. It also keeps the ink from bleeding through when writing on both sides.
Next take the printed sheets to your Office Supply store and have them spiral bind it. I spent about $3.50 for the coil and a clear front cover and white back cover for my planner. This just makes it more durable and holds it together beautifully!
Each month has statistic sheets as well as a monthly view layout where you can list all of your blog posts. If you print double sided like I suggest, you’ll end up with your monthly calendar on one side and the notes and other information for that month on the opposing side.
It also includes pages to help keep track of your sponsors, advertisers and affiliates. There is also a page to organize giveaways and. I also included a page to help keep track of all of your social media statistics, as well as planned social posts.
And pages at the back for general brainstorming and note taking.

Weekly Blog Planner:
For those of you who prefer a weekly view, I also have a free 2016 weekly blog planner here. The pages aren’t dated, so you can write in the dates for each week. This planner gives you a weekly view instead of a monthly view.
This one is also meant to be printed double sided, and on light weight cardstock for best results.
It also includes the same handy pages for notes, advertising, giveaways, review, and monthly notes as my other planner as well.
I hope you enjoy this planner, as always feel free to send improvements and suggestions to me via email. I can’t promise I’ll be able to attend to all requests, but if it is something that would be useful to most bloggers I will do my best to update the planner!
Happy blogging everyone!
Thank you so much! I’ve been looking for a good 2016 blogger planner that isn’t filled with a bunch of fluff but has adequate spaces to write (because apparently I’m a big writer). This is perfect!
Thank you so much Erica!
That’s awesome! Thank you for sharing!
After doing a great deal of searching for a good 2016 blog calendar, I decided that your 2016 blog calendar is the best one out there. Not only that, it’s FREE! I appreciate the time you took to make this and for adding in blog reviews (I’m a review blogger). I really appreciate the fact that it’s free.
This looks terrific! I am just starting to think about blogging on our website, and this should be very helpful.
So generous of you to share this for free!
Our family blog is basically a calendar for our musical events, and referral spot for people interested in booking our family band. In addition to the band the children have a video channel and I am thinking about blogging a little about our travels as well as the videos the boys make so that they might garner some traffic from that site as well.
Here is their latest video, and fun parody on “More Dangers in Homeschooling”. I hope it will bring a little laughter to your day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azRhkWcYUGg
