Free Printable Blog Planner

I have been on the quest for the perfect planner for about two years.  I put together a system last year that failed miserably and cost me too much.  I have tried organizing myself digitally with an online system — terrible.  I finally realized what my problem was…I am a blogger.  Who makes a planner for a blogger?  Answer? NO ONE!  See, if you are a creative blogger, you can relate!  We don’t plan our days by chunks of time, nor by schedule, we plan our days by projects. We also need paper to brainstorm, draw, think, collect, etc. Doing that online just doesn’t work for me. Hence, the problem with all the planners I looked at.  So I finally decided to figure out how to design my own planner, a feat in and of itself!  So here you have it.  A free, printable blog planner!

EDITED TO ADD:  I updated this planner with 7 colors and a new pattern and slight design modification in January of 2014.  Check it out here.

Printable blog planner

 

Supplies:

52 sheets of the printable planner

12+ blank sheets of printable calendar

2 pieces of decorative chipboard for front and back cover

chipboard for calendar tear-off pad

1 file folder

optional: pen loop

spiral binding service

Oh, and by the way, I have another problem.  Not only am I am a blogger I am a leftie.  So that makes my planner all backwards and upside down.  But it works for me and I am so totally excited about it!  It has really helped me plan ahead and stay organized.

I created a 2 minute video for you to see how and why I designed it this way.

 
 

In words this is what I did…

#1 I try to do three projects a week so I have three boxes for post ideas and projects.  I still blog 6 days a week but a few of those I don’t have to plan out (i.e. giveaways, 5 Ways posts, personal posts or guest bloggers).

#2 I have a place to track stats.  I try not to focus on numbers too much, but I will say tracking my stats helps me stay focused and not measure myself against other people.  Each week when I write down my stats it helps me measure myself against myself — which I highly recommend.

#3 Blogger to encourage. I have a huge heart to encourage and rejoice in the success of others.  Since my mantra this year is to be intentional this is the little spot that helps me be intentional in sending a little note to a blogger each week.

#4 A running to do list.  I try to keep this for proactive blogging things.  One of the things on my to do list in February will be to figure out Google +.  One of my past “to do’s” was the create a FB landing page, which I did.

#5 I also have a place for ideas.  This could be future post ideas, tutorials, dreams, goals, etc.

Blogger Planner 2

I also designed a blank calendar that I have to fill out every month with the days and month.  This helps me keep track of what I am blogging about each day — no I do not plan my blog a month in advance.  I know people that do but I am just not that organized!  I actually got it made into a tear-off pad so when I am done with the month I can just throw that away.

Also I got the background from Amy from Sprik Space which is found here.  She offers a bunch of free ones here as well.

Blogger calendar

Directions for binding:

I printed out 52 of the weekly pages and 20 of the blank calendars at home.  Then I took those, along with a decorative file folder and 2 decorative chipboard pieces to Office Depot. I had them cut the planner pages down to size determining the size of the binder.  They cut a file folder down to that size and then cut one of the long edges 1/2” shorter than the other so it could act as a flip folder.  Then with the calendars they cut it down to the edges of the grid on the left and right and then made it into a tear-off pad for me. All I had to do was adhere the tear off pad to the flip file folder when I got home.  I also purchased a pen loop and stuck it in the back to hold my pen.

Interested in making your own?  Here are the free printables for you.  You can just print the pages out and stick it in a binder too.  If you find this useful please let me know and share it with your friends via FB, twitter or Pinterest.

Edited to add:  Let me know if you want me to make a custom one for you by changing the wording in the boxes.  I can no longer provide this service – I am sorry.  However, here are a couple I have made for my readers.

      Thank you so much for making this planner available to us for free. I have begun to feel a little overwhelmed by my blogging, so much so, I have designated this a week of renewal and prayer. I need to take care of my household and me, to be that Prov. 31 wife I feel God calls me to be. I am going to try the calendar for the next 2 months to see if this is what I need for the year 2013. I am committed to blogging. It is more than something I want to do. It is a calling and a ministry, which I am so blessed to have, because I have been house-bound so much. If you find the time, please read my blog for Nov. 5, 2012 and pray for me. My husband is a minister of music, so it easy for the Enemy to just pile the guilt on me more when I miss church, which is a lot. People who have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome probably understand, but I doubt many people at church do. And I feel like such a stranger with so many of them, because the whole time we have been here, I have been sick.

      • Leesa C

        Oh, Mercy, Deborah! You and I are exactly alike! It is so hard if you have been active in the church and now this illness just robs you of be able to fellowship with fellow saints. I will be holding you up in prayer and I pray this planner is working for you. May the LORD fill you with HIS Perfect Peace. Many Hugs and Much Love, Leesa

    This looks great! It’d be an excellent reminder of what I need to pick up when I go to the store. That’s what I always have the most problem with. I always forget some important piece! I do actually plan my posts a month in advance. But they usually change a little bit depending on when I get things done or if a random opportunity comes up. :-) It makes me feel not so stressed because I know I have things planned!

    This is great! One of my goals for this year was to try to organize my blog and then stick to it! If I can’t do it with this system, then there’s not much hope for me!! Case in point… I had a football food post that I had every intention of running 2 weeks before the Super Bowl and about 3 days ago, my husband casually mentioned that the Super Bowl was this weekend and I freaked and never ended up running the post! Haha!! Thanks so much! I’ll be printing these off tomorrow!

    I love that you’ve created a tool that will work for YOU. My husband is left-handed, and I know that sometimes he uses notebooks completely backwards. I like the way you tailored your planner for southpaws! Most of all I admire the way you’re planning (and actually DOING!) things to encourage other bloggers. Your faith and your kindness just shine through.

    This is amazing! Oh my gosh…in all of your spare time (hehe) you need to start a workshop teaching those of us less gifted in the ways of organization and time management all of your tips and secrets! I need you…here…by my side…teaching me. :-D You’ve definitely motivated me today to try harder (or, I should say, to try…period) to be more organized, to manage my time better, and to be more intentional with my posts. I transitioned last year from full-time decorator with a blog on the side, to full-time blogger. But somehow, my mindset never seemed to change from “my blog is a hobby I do on the side” to “my blog is my business.” I have so much room for improvement!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

I was only using to share my life with distant friends (facebook was easier). Now, I have a blog with purpose. Thanks!!!

    DUUUUUDE! I love everything about this. Mostly the part where you got to go to Office Depot because I have a serious crush on that store. I was reading it and the file folder part confused me but then when I watched the video and saw what you did IT WAS GENIUS! I want ten of them. You know, I’ve moved so much of my stuff to electronic, iPhone, iPad, iCal, I LIFE but I miss paper. I miss drawing, being creative, this has really inspired me. Maybe it’s time to go back to my roots, and make something like this. I always have so many blog ideas, I never write them down, I forget them, I put them in my phone but never go back to look, this is just such a clever idea. PLUS OFFICE DEPOT.

    Love!

    Oh. Wow. I found this post and your blog a few days ago, and I am SO in love!!! Thank you for creating such a unique tool. And thank you even more for sharing it with all of us…your generosity is astounding! I’ve made a planner of my own. I’ve Facebooked about it, blogged about it, and Pinterest is next!! Here’s the post showing how I did mine if you’re interested in taking a peek… http://scrapthissavethat.blogspot.com/2012/04/whats-under-towel.html I added a couple of extra features…a pocket on the inside of the folder part, to hold cards I need to send out for the month, and a velcroed ribbon “strap” to hold the monthly calendar pages down when I open the book. Since I made a right-handed version, the monthly pages would move around every time I opened the front cover. And of course, the purple-loving hippie in me showed through on the cover design!

    Thank you for an awesome blog and an awesome idea.

  • http://pibarrington.wordpress.com P.I. Barrington

    These are great thanks! My only wish is that on the calendar, that you add lines to the days since I tend to write crookedly if there are no lines…oh, also on the planner pages if you could put the option of lines on the planner page as well–perhaps templates with lines as well as your original ones without lines?

    Lovely! I have an idea for another page – tracking giveaways. I need to design something that tracks the giveaway, prize, associated Facebook page and requirements (how many times to post or how many sites we have to promote it to). Maybe something about keeping track of numbers – how many FB fans at the beginning and end of the giveaway. I mention this since you already have a set of pages designed – if you want to do one for giveaways I could just come here and print a copy instead of designing one. (and it would benefit other bloggers like me who lose track of giveaways – I can’t be the only one, can I?)

  • http://www.sscrafter.blogspot.com Stephenie Smith

    Thanks for this planner!! I have downloaded and plan to use it to make a file folder planner for a friend’s birthday. My plan is to attach the calendar with brads to the folder since there are just 12 pages and use rubber cement to make a pad with pages that peel off for the weekly pages. If I get my battery charged on my camera before her birthday, I will take a picture of it to post.

    On the previous post, I think Caysedai was talking about all of the giveaways she enters, not sponsors. On some of the blog hops, it starts getting confusing which have giveaways and when are the winners announced.

    I blog and I found this from pinterest. Instead of using a notebook you could use a binder, then you can start with a few then print more as you need them. For the calendar you could just print one and put it in a slip cover that has the holes in it for binders then you just erase it every month, unless you want to keep track of what you did each month

    Here is another idea to incorporate if you would like to customize further. I use this format to track monthly bills : l.E……

    Monthly Bills (list them)

    Item Amount Due Date Paid

    Rent 250.00 01/01/10 12/28/09

    Utilities 175.00 01/10/10

    Note Pmt. 125.00 01/25/10 01/23/10

    Cable 53.00 01/01/10

    Car Insurance etc.

    Visa etc.

    Pharmacy etc.

    This comes in handy when I need to confirm whether I have/or have not made payment.

    Since I am responsible for paying the bills, this helps me stay on top of things. As the bills arrive, I add them to the list. And as I pay them it keeps me from needless searching for paperwork. I then file with other records.

      You can take it to Office Depot or any other office supply placee and they can do it for you.

That might help too.

    Hey! These pages are great and I love the Stay At Home Mom one but I was curious is you could make a blank one and change some of the wording. If this is possible it would be great! Instead of “Friends to Encourage” could you do another “Shopping List” and instead of “Ideas” could you do “Appointments” as a running list like “To Do”. Thanks so much and again, these pages are amazing and I love your blog, so glad I found it!

    Hi Becky –

    Hopping over from Southern Hospitality. Thanks for sharing this awesome planner. I’ve got scraps of paper all over my desk for blogging ideas and to-do lists. So something like this would be helpful. Have you thought about saving your planners from year-to-year for children to look through one day and see a ‘year-in-the-life’. Design Mom’s Gabby wrote a post the other day and linked to her her friend Emily who wrote about finding her mother’s day planner from 1967 (i think). It was a really beautiful post and I was just as intriqued as she was to read through a day in the life of this busy mom in the 60′s. Here’s Gabby’s post: http://www.designmom.com/2012/12/a-year-in-a-life-2/

    I saw this on Pinterest and it is just what I have been looking for! I am planner challenegdd and vowed to have only one planner that I can customize…and have not found just what I wanted until today. I am changing my focus this year to be more daily devotional directed – starting with my blogs.

    I love the blank versions (will customize with my art), but wonder if you could make two changes to the weekly page. Could you change the text in the two blocks at the bottom to read “Quiet Time” and “RAK” (no quotation marks) instead of Weekly Stats and Blogger to Encourage? Then it would be more than perfect. I am going ahead and print the calendar sheets and make my chipboard covers (also making one for my BFF as a roommate gift for a conference we are going to next week!).

    Thanks in advance for your generosity! I am now a follower and look forward to seeing you in my reader everyday. Blessings, Diane

    Thank You! It has been on my heart for sometime now to begin a blog of my own. I have felt a little overwhelmed by it though, but now armed with this I believe I can do it. I really believe I found you for a reason. Thanks again!

      You are welcome, good luck!

  • Erik

    VERY cool. Thanks for this! I heard your recent podcast interview and you are officially my inspiration. I love your approach, thoroughness and dedication to both the front-end and back-end of your blog.

    I’m also left-handed (which, as a guy, might explain why I’m starting a crafting blog… guys in this niche aren’t so common) and need something real-world to remind me to keep writing and get ORGANIZED instead of “This is cool, I’ll write about this today!!”. I installed a plug-in and barely use it.

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Thanks Erik. And welcome to the crafting niche. What is your site I would like to check it out?

      • http://erikkraemer.com Erik

        Shortly after having posted my comment, I installed a plug-in which effectively destroyed my site. Yea! It’s back up if you still wish to take a quick peek. Would love any feedback! I didn’t have the back-ups I do now, so it’s a fresh start. My goal is to create a resource for me (baaaaaaaad memory) and my customers in my store. LOVE your new craft room, by the way. Makes me sick with jealously, but I love it anyway.

    Thank you for this Becky!

    I’d like to hire you as a BlogSultant (Blog Consultant) I just made that up btw LOL! Anyway I would really like to chat with you and YES hire you to help me through the Blogosphere.

    My LOVE is the DIY/Craft niche, alas it is saturated by such great talent, that I have no idea now what to do? Plus, I’m a “Fifty Something” RN and I find most bloggers are so much younger than me, I’m wondering if I’m to late?

    Thank you for being such an upbeat, open inspiration!

    I’m having trouble downloading the teacher planners you made for your readers. I can download the blogger planners, so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I can’t wait to download and use these wonderful planners!

    Hey Beckie, Thank you for creating these! I only printed out 2-3 months worth to put in a 3 ring binder, so I don’t get ahead of myself (that could be dangerous!!) But I really think they’re going to help. It has all the right spaces for all of the info I’ve been jotting down on scratch paper, calenders too small, etc… I’ll be back to print more once I’ve successfully used these up. Oh, and having your blog colors on those pages adds that little extra inspiration!! Thanks again ~ Amy

    I am about to make the jump to free WordPress blog to self-hosted “I hope to monetize it in the future” full on website and I’ve been searching for a planner to help me organize all the thoughts that are tumbling around inside my head.
    As soon as I read that you were a leftie too– well, I was sold…lol.
    Thank you for offering the free planner! Off to staples now to get it bound!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Awesome! I hope it helps. It has been a lifesaver for me.

  • http://dgwheeler.wordpress.com Dana

    I am so excited you made this specifically for being left handed!! I am left handed and even though I have adapted its still nice to once in a while find something done with lefties in mind.

    I actually found this a couple years (?) ago but never went anywhere with it…. I am hoping to fine something to help me make a planner specifically for my needs… This is a great start for me. Thanks :)

      You are welcome, Dana! I really hope it helps.

    Hi, I’m trying to print the blank calendar on left and right side of the paper. When i mess around with the page settings, i can get the calendar to be on the left side only. Is it possible to get the calendar on both sides? I have a 5.5 x 8.5 (half sheet) planner, and i’m organizing mine on the left side so i can write without the rings in the way.

    Thank you,

    Brianne

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      All you have to do is punch your holes on the other side of the paper to make it left or right.

  • Claudia

    What a great planner! I have so many ideas in my head when it comes to blogging on my site, but struggle with finding the time to actually blog about them. Love the stats box!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Thanks, I find it’s very encouraging to see my own growth instead of comparing myself to others.

    Hi Beckie,

    Love your planner. I wondered if you would be able to customise one for me. I am a school librarian for 4 – 11 year olds in a school in the UK. The planner would be perfect. I would keep the To Do side as it is but would like to change the three large boxes and two small boxes:

    Activities:

    Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar:

    Displays:

    Storyteller Choices: Competitions:

    Would that be possible, please?

  • Della

    This is awesome! Organization does not come naturally for me, yet I LOVE planners! I started making my own homeschool planners because I ended up with tons of pages I never used. I can just include what I know I will use and leave out the rest. I have been blogging for a few years, mostly as a hobby, but recently started a new blog with the hopes of making it profitable, since I’m a SAHM. I’ve been jotting things down in a notebook, but can never find it easily so I searched on pinterest for blog planners. I found several, but kept coming back to this one. I’m designing my own pages to coordinate with my blog design, but I absolutely love the design of this planner so I’m copying that! I’m not a lefty though, and having trouble visualizing how to put it together opposite of what you have LOL. It would be awesome if you put together a step-by-step picture tutorial showing how you put it together before getting it bound. Thanks so much for this, I know I have to be more organized with my blogging to make it work like I’d like and I really think this will help me accomplish that goal!

    Love it! So often I’ve found what I thought would be a great planner only to end up frustrated. You really hit it with the fact that a lot of us plan based on project and not on a 9 to 5 process. I only had one technical glitch in trying to print out the pages. I downloaded everything and when I hit the print button all I got was blank paper. I suspect it’s me (and my love/hate relationship with technology) and will give it another go later. Thanks for sharing your work!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      I am glad you liked the planner, Christiana. It has been so helpful for me. If you continue to have printing problems, please let me know, and I will see what I can do to help.

  • zinnia

    I saw your fantastic planner on “Not Your Mother’s Genealogy Blog. I hope to take your idea and adapt it to my own “project work” style. I also didn’t know that the spiral binding is so inexpensive. Thanks a bunch!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      No problem. Glad you like it!

  • Karen Beavers

    Thank you my goal for 2014 is more organized but more importantly more focused. Will let you know how it goes.
