Blog Organization, Part 2: Make Calendars


On Monday, I shared with you my blog post ideas and to-do list printables in Blog Organization Part 1. Today, I am sharing with you the importance of keeping a calendar.

To start, you will need to decide how many posts to write in one week. This will help you figure out the amount of posts you will need for the month. I decided on writing 3 posts a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. When I started hosting the Motivational Monday Link Party, instead of making that one of my three days I chose to add to my posts/week. I now try to schedule 4 posts/week. Of course, this isn't set in stone. Sometimes my readers gets more posts and sometimes they get less posts. 

Once you know how often you want to post, start filling in that calendar. First, schedule link parties, giveaways, scheduled link-ups, or other posts that must be posted on a specific day. Remember the lists I shared with you on Monday? Find your list of blog post ideas and finish filling in your calendar with those ideas.

As promised, here are the printable calendar outlines I have created to match my list of blog post ideas and my to-do list.
