To honor the work that was put into creating this printable… please, do share the planner with others by sharing the blog post about the planner rather than this page.

Build your own blogging planner:
Some bloggers post daily, some post once a week, and some are all over the place in between and beyond those numbers. 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!
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 2016 edition and made a couple of the sheets more user-friendly. In addition, I added in several new worksheets, including:
- – Brand Contacts Sheet— Use this to keep all of your contact information at your finger tips.
- – To Do Lists – Print off several to use throughout the year.
- – Year at a Glance Planner— See the dates for the entire year.
- – Two Posts Weekly — Many bloggers are now posting only twice weekly and this planner is for them.
- – Two Posts Daily— Occasionally I get a request from someone who is really creating a ton of content. This sheet is for them! Plan out two daily posts with this worksheet.
- – Monthly Covers – I’ve changed up the quotes on the monthly covers.
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.
