My Monday Made-It this week is for all you bloggers out there! I am a planner, an organizer, a list-maker. I am obsessed with calendars. I like to have things written down. So I created my very own blog planner! I was inspired by The Eager Teacher to create this. Not all of her pages worked quite right for me, so I tweaked it to fit my needs. And, honestly, it's still not all the way right for me. But eventually I will get it right!
Here is the cover (which is just so darn pretty to look at!):
I have the monthly calendar first:
I use my fun flair pens to make everything prettier!
Next, I have a weekly calendar:
There are boxes for each day of the week.
As well as sections for to-dos, projects and collaborations (linky parties, giveaways, etc).
The third section is for blogging ideas.
I use it to write down topics I want to blog about. The checkboxes on the side are my favorite!
The last section is where I take notes about products that I want to create. It's hard to keep them all in my head!
Once I finished the planner, I had it bound at Staples!
I'm not going to lie, I'm kinda obsessed with my planner. I may be making more in the future! I do know that some bloggers find a planner to be cumbersome and just extra work, which is completely understandable. I don't use my planner all the time, but I do really like having it. It definitely helps me feel more organized.
