New ‘Weekly To Do List’ Free Printable

You may have noticed I’ve reworked my logo and branding for my Etsy shop, and just this last week I’ve done some work to this blog as well.  Let me know what you think of the changes!

To celebrate my new logo, I’ve made a NEW ‘Weekly To Do List’ Free Printable.  It’s free, so take a look and download it for your personal use.  You can easily hole punch it to use in your home management binder, or clip it to your fridge.  I’ll also feature the new printable on my “Free Printables Page”, for easy access.

FREE Printable Calendar from Hello, Cuteness!...

I have to share these adorable FREE 2013 Calendar Printables I found from HelloCutness.com.  Click here to check out their website for the full collection.

So cute!  I printed out the full 2013 calendar and laminated each page for durability and to write on with a dry erase marker.

My oldest son is learning the days of the week in playschool.  I realized I don't have a calendar around the house that he can refer to.  I keep a calendar in my household binder and on my phone instead.

This calendar from Hello, Cuteness is colorful and easy to read.  I used a magnet clip to attach it to my fridge for easy access.  I will keep the upcoming months in a folder in a cupboard near the fridge.

After each month is over, I'll give the sheet to my son and he can write things on the calendar with his dry erase crayons and practice his counting.  Super cute!  I had to share!

Sandra

Blog Planner

One area of my life I knew I needed to organize is this blog.  I want to be a more organized blogger, since this blog is mostly about… you guessed it… organizing!

I’m the kind of person who likes to use paper lists.  I love the feeling of checking off a project on a “To Do” list.  I feel like I’m getting somewhere and I’m actually completing something.

I’ve toyed with the idea of creating my own blog planner printable.  I was unsure how to put it together and what areas I needed to include.  So I took to the internet to see what other are using.  I came across this great FREE blog planner from Jolanthe at Homeschool Creations.

simpleispretty.com: Blog Planner

Jolanthe’s blog planner includes (as listed from her website):
  • 12 month-at-a-glance pages with a monthly focus list
  • room to track reviews and giveaways
  • space to jot notes and ideas
  • weekly post trackers, including social media reminders
  • monthly website analytics tracker: RSS, Facebook, Twitter, etc…
  • a place to keep track of affiliate program info
  • a Twitter hashtag tracker {because there are lots!}
  • weekly blog meme tracker
  • mileage sheet {who thought blogging might involve driving?}
  • website username & password sheet {I can’t remember them all!}
  • and room to jot down all those wonderful post ideas
I love the colors and fonts she used to create the planner.  So Pretty!  Not to mention how simple it is to use and the planner has everything you need to organize your blog!

Here is how I put my Blog Planning Binder together…

1. First grab a binder.  I used a 2” Avery Heavy Duty Robuste white binder.  I opted for a 2” binder so I can store all my blog ideas in one place.  But a 1” binder will also do the trick.  The Avery Heavy Duty Robuste binder also has enough room so the dividers won’t stick out and get wrecked.

2. Next, I added 3 packages of dividers.  I love the pop of color and decided to add Avery Big Tab Insertable Plastic Dividers (8 Tab).  In the end, I have 24 different sections to my binder.

3. Print out Jolanthe’s Pretty Blog Planner here.  Next, hole punch the printable blog planner to fit in the binder.

4. Print out the divider labels using the instructions on the package.

I have a divider for each month of the year.  The section for each month includes Jolanthe’s monthly calendar page, review/giveaway & notes page and weekly schedule page.

The other sections (dividers) in my binder include:
  • Websites & Blogs – includes Jolanthe’s “Website & Blogs” & “Link-ups to Participate” page
  • Website Analytics – includes Jolanthe’s “Website Analytics” page
  • Website Enhancements
  • Mileage Tracker – includes Jolanthe’s “Milage Tracker” page
  • Income & Expenses – includes Jolanthe’s “Income and Expense” & “Affiliate Programs” page
  • Shopping Ideas & Wish List
  • Home Project Ideas – includes Jolanthe’s “Ideas in my head…” page
  • Twitter – includes Jolanthe’s “Twitter Hashtag Tracker” page
  • Facebook
  • Pinterest
  • Blog Post Ideas – includes Jolanthe’s “Ideas in my head…” page
You can make as many sections as you like.  I’m hoping to keep everything for my blog in this one binder so I added lots of sections.

5. To customize my binder I added some scrapbook paper to the front plastic cover. I just trimmed the paper to the right size and slid it underneath the title page Jolanthe created.

I printed a duplicate copy of the cover page and cut it down to fit the spine of the binder.  I also lined the spine and back cover with the same patterned scrapbook paper as the front cover.

Here is how it turned out…

How do you organize your blog?  Do you prefer to have something paper to refer to and check off?  Or do you use a program on your phone, iPad or computer?

Sandra
