Free Printable Blog Planner and Calendar

A couple of years ago I created the perfect blog calendar –at least it was for me. I have used it since then to stay organized. With over 192,000 pins I would say many of you downloaded it and have found it to be helpful as well.  I updated the design a little bit and also have 7 new colors available. You’ll want to read the other post to see how I bound it – there is a little video including why I did what I did.

Many readers asked me to change the boxes to make it fit their particular niche/profession.  Unfortunately, I got too many requests for that and can no longer provide that service.  So this planner is specifically designed for BLOGGERS!

What you will need is a one file folder, some chipboard or hard plastic for the front cover and back, all the planner pages printed out in the color of your choice, and some mini binder clips.

On the previous planner the calendar pages were made to be a tear-off pad.  That didn’t work well for me since I flip back and forth often and found the pages tore off too easily.  So this year I made it simple and just clipped the pages to the file folder with mini binder clips.

Armed with a poly folder from Target, two pieces of white cardstock to put behind the folders so they looked nicer since they were see through, a cute file folder and all the pages printed out at home – I brought it to Office Depot to bind.

1.  Have them cut the calendar pages and the planning pages down to remove the white edges.  That will determine the size of your binder.  Cut the folders, two pieces of white cardstock (if your poly folders were see through like mine where) and the file folder down (make sure they don’t cut the fold off) to the same size.

2.  Cut about 1/2” off the one edge of the file folder so it folds open. 

3.  Then have them spiral bind the binder together.  Mine is backwards because I am left-handed but just adjust it if you want.  My binder is designed to be opened flat with the weekly pages to the left and the calendar to the right.

4.  Add a stick on pen holder if you want.

I am not sure how much they will charge you, every Office Depot seems to charge differently based on cutting and their time.  However they did it for me for $2.99 a binder!!

  1. love! thank you!

    I took one on a disk last year nd had it printed and then bound. OMG. $70!!

    my husband said never again… LOL!!

    But… binding wasn’t that expensive by itself. and if i make my own chip board cover, i can paint it with chalk board paint, or cover it with chalk board scrapbook paper. YAY! (I love chalk board! lol!)

    and if I print it all, set it up, and then just have it bound for me, I can make separate sections for homeschooling and menu planning all in once place.

    *happy dance*

  2. Beckie,

    This is great! I am printing it now, can’t wait to start using it

  4. Just what I have been looking for to use in my A5 filofax ( i printed to fit to page and it worked perfectly) I have two blogs and needed this level of organisation!!

    I have been using the old planner for quite a while and LOVE it! I can’t wait to try this new one. Would you be able to make them without a background on them like you did with the old ones?

    • Hi McKenzie, I wanted to let you know I got your comment and have a request in with my designer to see if it’s possible. Stay tuned! :)

  6. WOW this looks awesome, thanks for sharing these forms. I look forward to using them :)

    I love this. I need to be more organized in regards to my blog. I don’t have access to a printer at the moment, or a place that can spiral bind for me. However I might incorporate this into my normal planner. Do you feel that having a separate planner for blogging is better?

    • For me, yes. However, you could certainly use some aspects in your regular planner if you can’t print it. It’s all about finding what works for you.

  8. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! I’ve got it, and it’s absolutely wonderful!!!! It didn’t occur to me that you might have had it posted somewhere else! Thanks again!!!!

  9. This is so great! Thank you!!

    This was awesome. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  11. Thank you so much for sharing! I just printed out all the pages I will need for 2015 and I feel more organized already! My computer desk is scattered with papers everywhere! I can’t wait to have everything in one place! Though I love your idea of binding with a poly cover made from a pocket folder, I may just hole punch and stick them in a loose leaf binder with dividers for each month. That way, I can add papers (like a recipe or details for a collaboration) as I go along. I am notorious for having to print out a recipe several times because I loose it before I can work with it!

    • I think that’s a great idea to put it in a binder so you can add papers in there. You gotta do what works for you! I am so glad you can use the printable!
