Build your own blogging planner:
Some bloggers post daily and some post once a week. Some bloggers blog for profit and others blog as a hobby and a chance to collaborate with others. This year’s free blog planner, like last year, can be mixed and matched to make the planner that works for you. Or, if you’d prefer, head to the bottom of the page for a complete planner loaded into a PDF that has already been put together for you. You can print and get bound at a local print shop. Or, do as I do, and print and put into a 3-ring-binder so that you can add sheets as needed! This year I’ve also included a three pages of blog maintenance worksheets that you can print off and frame or put into clear sleeves and use a dry erase marker to utilize over and over again. Scroll to the bottom of the page for information on my new worksheets, links to binder materials I recommend and saving/printing directions.

Each year I go through and modify pages from the previous years and adding new pages as I see fit. I fixed some mistakes on the 2015 edition and made a couple of the sheets more user-friendly. In addition, I added in several new worksheets, including:
- Monthly Income Report — I find monthly income reports SO inspiring. This past few months I’ve been tracking my own monthly income and find these worksheets incredibly helpful.
- Post Maintenance Worksheet— Earlier this year my newsletter subscribers received a file with my Blog Maintenance Worksheets. I edited the version to coordinate with the blog planner and have included it in this year’s planning downloads. These worksheets are perfect for using over and over again by slipping into a binder sleeve and using a dry erase pen.
- Weekly Blog Maintenance Worksheet— Earlier this year my newsletter subscribers received a file with my Blog Maintenance Worksheets. I edited the version to coordinate with the blog planner and have included it in this year’s planning downloads. These worksheets are perfect for using over and over again by slipping into a binder sleeve and using a dry erase pen.
- Monthly Blog Maintenance Worksheet— Earlier this year my newsletter subscribers received a file with my Blog Maintenance Worksheets. I edited the version to coordinate with the blog planner and have included it in this year’s planning downloads. These worksheets are perfect for using over and over again by slipping into a binder sleeve and using a dry erase pen.
- Year in Review Worksheet— This new worksheet is a great way to reflect over the past year and will help you in planning out your next year. I’d print one to fill out for 2015 and one to put at the end of your binder for next year!
- Social Media Tracker— Keep all your social media information in one convenient place with this Social Media Tracker.
- Social Media Planner— This is another one that I released earlier in the year, but not with the 2015 planner. Track your social media goals and make a loose plan for your social media postings.
Downloading and Printing
These sheets are for personal use for those who have subscribed to A Well Crafted Party’s e-mail newsletter. To save a file you’ll want to click on the image, right click on the opened PDF and save to your computer. The sheets print in color on 8.5X11 printer paper. You can print on your home computer or print at your favorite print shop. Please note that printing the complete binder at a local print shop in full color is fairly expensive. I like to pick and choose which items I’ll need for my binder and print as needed or print at home.
Assembling Your Planner
Personally I like to use a three-ring binder for my blog planner because I can add to the planner as needed. However, you can also print and combine using a spiral binding. The supplies I’d suggest getting for your binder include (following links are affiliate links):
- Three ring binder
- Tab Dividers (I personally like 15 tabs for my binder)
- Clear Binder Pockets (a great way to reuse some of the sheets… simply slip the page into the pocket and write on it with a dry erase marker. Wipe clean when you need to use again.)
- Sharpie pens
- Dry erase pens
- Pencil case for binder– never lose your pens!
- Clear binder pocket – great for receipts!
- Fun tapes and stickers are great for marking special areas in your binder as well.
