Getting organized for the New Year
I tried to get organized when planning blog posts last year and I just don't think the three ring binder, formal way I went about it was the best way for me. I think I'm going to try and work the way I used to in college. Back then I always had a sketchbook with me, art major and all that, and ever since I've always carried some sort of notebook or sketchbook. I found this one at Hobby Lobby during Christmas shopping and thought it was large enough to hopefully last the entire year and work as a planner/notebook/blog organizer.
It's spiral bound with a hard cover and can lay completely flat. Very important.
I printed off some calendar pages from here and sprung for about 2 dollars worth of glue dots and stuck them into the notebook. I have a blank page opposite that I can use to plan out the posts more in detail using an organic method (also known as no one in the universe is going to know what's going on but me.) Let's see if this works......
Let me know how you're planning or not planning for your blog this year. I'm not planning to be militant about this, everything will be done in pencil for easy editorial changes but I have a backlog of posts and unless I get a game plan together they are just going to sit there.
