I have this little ole’ bloggy you see, and even though I am usually a very organized person, I was not really doing anything to keep track of my growth, or my posts, or my ideas, or my giveaways. I guess I could go on and on, but I won’t. My way of “staying organized” was filing emails in certain folders. That was my only system. A few months back Beckie from Infarrantly Creative shared the blog planner she created and I thought, “wow! I should do something like that.” But then I didn’t. Don’t you just love when that happens?
Well, this week I decided to change that! But rather than recreate the wheel, I downloaded Beckie’s blank page, added in my info, printed off 52 of those and 12 calendar pages. Grabbed two pieces of chipboard and bound everything together, with a white tab I made on my Accucut to separate the sections. Beckie made her calendar pages removable so she could throw them away, but I really like being able to see the month-at-a-glance so I bound mine right into the book. You should definitely head on over to see how she made hers and to get the free download!
So far so good. I’m keeping track of my weekly stats (it’s pretty cool to see it grow… obviously I knew my numbers went up, but not how much each week), and I’m able to easily see when I did what and when a giveaway ends, etc.
