Last year I tried to do a planner for my blog. I even bought stickers, washi tape, and cool colored pens. But I have to tell you, I just didn’t plan in it like I thought I would. I would decorate it and forget it. Not just for blogging but also for my teenagers school and work schedules. It’s super hard for one to remember should I be picking who up here, what time, where. Yeah all of those lovely panic moments. I knew something needed to change. Then my daughter got a gift for her birthday. It was a dry erase board with a reusable calendar. It hit me! I knew then I needed one but it took a year for me to do it; or almost.
I finally bought a dry erase board in first week of January. Using the dry erase markers in different colors I started to write down their schedules. I wrote down what blog posts I wanted to get done each day of the week. For me this is usually more that one as I blog or ghost blog at other sites also. Usually that’s about three to four posts a day that need photography, cooking, crafting, and writing. That between three other peoples schedules can easily make one post go amidst in my mind. But why a dry erase calendar board?
This is why. You have so much more room. If you abbreviate you have even more room. I can use it month to month with less paper waste. Less cost in the planner overall. My board is also magnetic so I can stick notes to it when need be. I just write in schedules, blog posts, and more by a color code. I’ve even found it helps out the entire family when it comes to seeing where my husband or I needs to be to take someone or when schedules conflict.
Another way I like to keep track of daily blogging tasks is this Daily Checklist. It’s perfect for bloggers. Just print and pop it into a frame. Then use a dry erase maker to check off your daily activities as a blogger. You can just use a rag with rubbing alcohol to clean it daily. You may also use a dry eraser but alcohol seems to work better. I even designed this in two colors. The colorful one above and a red one that matches my room where my desk is. Just click the image to download the PDF.
Lastly, is the menu printable. This is really cool even if your not a food blogger or blogger in general. You can also pop it into a frame and use a dry erase maker. It makes for an easy way to write down what groceries you need as you run out. Make a menu plan. As a food blogger you can use this for your posts. This can also be hung in the kitchen so the kids don’t have to ask you five billion times whats for dinner. Just click the image to download.
