Free Printable Blog Planner

2013 to 2016 Blog Planner

We hear over and over again that planning is the key to successful blogging. For some people, it is! Planning and organizing out blog posts, collaborations, affiliations, sponsors, and the like can get overwhelming easily. It is a good idea to keep your plans all in one central location whether it be on your computer, online, or on paper. For people out there that LOVE the feel of paper in hand, or want a place that is non-tech based to hash through post ideas, or even have a way of posting up your schedule so that you can see it everyday… I made these printables!

I created a set of free printable blog planning sheets for the Portland Bloggers’ January Meet-Up from this past weekend. I’ve been utilizing them in my own planning now and am finding them super helpful. Check them out and hopefully you’ll find one or two that can help make your blog planning go a little more smoothly.

The free printables in the blog planning package include:

  • Monthly Blog Post Planning Calendar— Each sheet has an open month calendar so that you can put the month and dates in. Each day on the calendar has popular social networking symbols with check boxes so that you can check off when you’ve promoted a post.
  • Weekly Blog Post Planning Calendar— Some people prefer to plan out their blog posts in more detail and on a weekly basis. The weekly calendar also has social networking symbols. It also has an area for weekly blog maintenance and SEO planning prompts.
  • Events and Holidays— A list of events and holidays. This is not a comprehensive list by any means… it also has all of the dates for the upcoming Portland Bloggers’ Meet-Ups.
  • Blog Post Brainstorming Worksheet A blog post planning sheet
  • Blog Collaboration Worksheet A place to track collaborative projects and responsibilities.
  • Blog Resolutions Tracker— A place to write and track blog goals and resolutions
  • Finance Tracker— A place to record income and expenses
  • Affiliate Programs— A place to track affiliate programs
  • Sponsors— A place to track sponsors, payment, and responsibilities.
  • Stats & Analytics— A place to record your stats and analytics monthly
The above links go to a downloadable FREE PDF of each sheet of the printable planner. Download the ones you need!
(PS. I’d love to know what you think of the free blog planner, what items you’d like to see on an update, and how you are using them for your blog!) There will be a new set of printables out near the end of the year, so get your suggestions in soon!
* I created these free printables for personal use only.
The printables were first featured on the Portland Bloggers’ website (also owned by me).

  12. I would love to see a monthly calendar without the social media stuff. And perhaps a sheet that’s more planning/information oriented for brainstorming/starting new posts that’s not quite so bubble oriented. As my blog is growing I need to keep better track. I’m usually 100% digital but can’t seem to keep it together on the computer, so I need to go to paper for it.

    Definitely keep the social media promotion checkboxes with the posts! That’s the big downfall I see on most blogging calendars! Can’t wait to be a little more organized. Thank you!!

    1. Jenni
      Reply

      That is AWESOME feedback! I agree about the monthly calendar. I’ve been using it for about 6 months now and find I use the social media reminders more on the weekly calendar than the monthly. I am also thinking about adding a more detailed one for people who blog more than once a day. Thanks so much… I hope it helps!

    Something I thought of is a list to keep track of products that are delivered to you and what kind of review has to be done and by when. Also if there is a giveaway for it.

    I am in the process of starting up my website and blog as well as repurposing/refinishing furniture and decor. With everything going on I do not have time to create anything and have had a difficult time finding planners/templates that would work for what I need. What you have made is gorgeous as well functional! You have everything needed ready to go or just needing a couple of tweaks. I thank you soooooooo much for making these available, it makes life a lot less stressful! Once I have my site up and running I would love to offer a link to this as well as the other helps and how to’s that you offer!

    BTW, my website is being created, I hope to have a temporary site running in the next couple of days. Being one that feels you only have one first impression, I have fought myself over the look and navigation of the site. You have done a fantastic job and give off a warm and inspiring first impression! If you have ANY helpful advice or hints I would LOVE for you to send them my way!!

      Thank you so much! That means a lot. I’m sure I have a ton of advice… however, lately I’ve been needing to take my own advice when it comes to my blog. Life sometimes gets in the way. Try to treat your blog (business) as much like you would a real brick and mortar business. Keep your space clean, clutter free. Open your doors every day. Etc. Good luck!

    Love your blog planning sheets but I had a question on something on the Brainstorming sheet. What does SEO stand for?

    Thank you for sharing. I plan on starting a new blog soon and I hope to do better with the new one than I did with the old one. 🙂

      Linda– great question! SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. You can fall into a research hole looking that term up and learning a lot of great information for writing posts that Search Engines will find. I use that area to write out keywords that I think people would search for and then (sometimes) use Google Adwords Keyword tool to see the best combination of keywords to get my post noticed.

    These are sooo great! I’ve been searching for a blog planner and your pages are my fave so far. I especially love the blog brainstorm sheet. I find that’s the biggest downfall for the majority of planners — they don’t have a space to brainstorm ideas! I don’t know if you’re still taking input for the pages, but if you are my only recommendation would be to not use the yellow/light golden colors. I don’t know if it’s my printer, but it gets hard to see once I print it (this is mostly on the blog brainstorming page). Also for the weekly, if you could make the boxes for each day a bit bigger just to give a bit more writing space. For the brainstorm page as well- if there’s a way to make the bubbles bigger to just have more writing space. Also, it would be great to have a blog series brainstorm page. Overall, I love them! What program do you use to make your printables? I want to start making my own but have no idea where to start!

      That is a great idea! I came across that problem with the yellow while printing this last time (with a different printer than the first set I made) and was thinking about doing that myself. I use Illustrator for my printables. Though, you could make a good set of printables with Word as well.

    These are just lovely. I am a huge fan of anything colorful so I just fell in love with these. I especially like the bubble graphics on the brainstorming sheets.
    One thing I would love to see is a nice pretty cover sheet. My binder needs a cover and I’m just fussy enough to want it to match what is inside. 🙂 I’ll let you know if I come up with anything else once I’ve started using it!
    Thanks again for the free sheets!
