Planners and Me

Hello lovelies! Firstly, well done for waking up on a Monday morning! We all know how difficult that can be. How was your weekend?

Well did you realise it’s officially two weeks since I started using a blogging planner? When I say a blogging planner, it’s actually a Palgrave student planner but I’m loving using it for my blog! The real question is, has it worked? 

I started out using a normal notebook to jot down all my post ideas. I then wrote down what I wanted to post and when, as well as noting any important events over the next few weeks. I even listed all the Twitter chats in the front of the diary! Although I suppose that needs updated now with Girl Power…. 

Each month, there’s a “notes” page for the month and a to do list. In the To Do section, I’m going to write my month’s goals both for blogging and for day to day life. Depending on what I’m doing each month, I’m going to make the notes page really bring and relevant to the upcoming month. I won’t post a picture, if you don’t mind, but it will be included in my post on 1st September! So keep an eye out for that.
There are a lot of pages that I probably won’t use, since it was made as a student planner. But sometimes they might be useful!
Do you have a planner or journal you use for blogging? How do you plan ahead? Or do you just go with the flow? Let me know in the comments below!!

Hey :) I'm 25, from Northern Ireland and no longer new to blogging. I love all things TV, books, food, music and film as well as going out with friends. This is hopefully somewhere you'll be able to come if you feel you need a laugh or even just to stay in touch. Life can be hard and confusing, so

  1. I don’t have a planner as such l, I just have a book where I write down all my ideas and spin ideas of on spider diagrams e.g Autumn as the topic and then loads of ideas coming off it for posts. I’m going to have a look for one of these so I can give more structured planning a go.

  2. At the moment because I am such a newbie to blogging, I go with the flow! But I think its always good to be organised with your thoughts and doing some prep can enhance the quality of your writing as then you get more time to think about what you are going to write about and how to word it etc! Cool idea and something I may do in the future!! x

  4. Thanks for the comment Tasah! That’s exactly how I started – just a book of ideas! I still use it alongside my planner but it now means I can see what I want to post and when 😊 if you do get a planner and give it a go, be sure to let me know how it goes! xxx

Thank you so much! 💕 since Girl Power got started I’ve not had much time to blog as I’m constantly worried about missing something 🙈 but the planner is definitely helping as it means I’m not stressing about actually thinking of what to write!
