When I started blogging in January, I had no idea how many things were involved with blogging beyond writing and managing the website. The tasks required to simply promote each post is a lengthy to-do list on its own. I realized pretty quickly that I needed to find a way to get organized. After several failed attempts at developing my own system, I did what I do best–got on the internet to find out how other people were doing it and then sifted through them to find those who would share their wisdom for free. Thankfully, bloggers are a generous bunch. Most of us blog for the sole purpose of sharing information. So, it wasn’t hard to find a wide variety of free blog planner printables.
In the spirit of sharing, and also to help promote these awesome bloggers who did all the hard work of creating amazing printables, I’m publishing my findings. Whether you’re looking for a fun design or a classic design, a simple planner with the basics or a comprehensive planner with sheets for every detail, you’ll find what you want among the links below.
Angela at A Typical English Home has put together a sleek, basic planner to track blogging essentials.
Another understated, but elegant planner is shared by Isabella at Just Another Static Heart. The pages remind me of jotting down notes on pretty stationery.
Ruth at Living Well, Spending Less has designed a planner that is perfect for goal-oriented bloggers since it includes both monthly and long-term goal-tracking sheets.
Ginny at Organizing Homelife sells two different versions of her blog planner (Basic and Complete) but she offers some of the pages for free on her website.
Jolanthe at Home School Creations has put together one of the most comprehensive blog planners I could find. More than just a post planner, she has pages to help you track expenses, mileage, passwords, and more.
TJ at the Measuring Flower has put together a simple, but colorful planner to help you stay organized. I love the blog maintenance checklist with suggested items already filled in (you can print a blank one if you’d prefer NOT to have the suggestions included).
Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler has designed her own colorful planner with pages designed specifically for tracking advertisers, giveaways and reviews.
Sarah at My Joy-Filled Life has created an adorable planner that is also quite detailed. It’s the one I use since it aligns with how I think and like to keep track of things. She sells the printable file for $4.99 but gives it to you for free if you subscribe to her newsletter which is chock-full of great information.
Last, but not least, is an amazingly thorough planner created by Jenni at A Well Crafted Party. My favorite features of this planner are the brainstorming pages (which not only has a cool design but also includes spaces for tags and SEO) and the blog collaboration worksheet since it’s the only one I’ve seen in ANY of the planners. She originally designed the planner for her Portland Blogging Group Meet-UP which is why it’s marked with PDX Bloggers, but she is the creator and their site forwards you to her site anyway so I’m crediting her at her blog.
