How to keep organised as a Blogger – It’s a question that many people ask and especially when you’re just starting out it can be hard to keep everything under control.

In this post I’m sharing some of my tips and tricks on how you can stay organised as a blogger and keep your blogging routine and schedule steady.

How to keep organised as a Blogger – Notes

Notepads and Notes, this is one of the most important things that you need to have with you all the time excluding your diary.

I find that having a little notepad in my handbag really helps as I might get an idea when I’m having coffee with friends or I might see something inspiring that I’ll want to share…making a few notes will help keep all your ideas flowing.

How to keep organised as a Blogger – Diary

Another important thing that should be with you ALL THE TIME – your diary!

Since getting my Filofax (post here) I’ve managed to keep everything under control – meetings, events, blog schedule, email contacts and to-do lists are all jotted in here and updated every/every other day.

How to keep organised as a Blogger – Phone

I’m old-school at heart and love writing things down in my diary and notebook but where on earth would I be without my iPhone 6 Plus…..it’s a little (big) Godsend and with apps like Evernote, Countdown+, Outlook, Bloglovin, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook I can keep updated with my planner, blogs and social media!

I’ll be covering the best blogging phone apps in another post….

How to keep organised as a Blogger – Folders

I told you, I’m old-school and when you work from home you need to make sure you have files and folders to hand to keep all your leaflets, press info and details in one place so they can easily be found.

On my desk I have quite a few folders consisting of ‘launching soon‘ ‘launched‘ ‘lookbook‘ ‘press sheets‘ where I sort everything out and know what’s happening soon, what’s happened and any other details I need….

How to keep organised as a Blogger – Blog Planner

Ah, who doesn’t love a good blog planner?

I find these so handy when it comes to planning my blog post schedule and looking back on posts I’ve written – they’re so cute when folded and used as a pull-out in diaries!

    I think I use all of these to some degree or another and I still feel unorganized lol. I also always manage to get things done and that’s what’s most important.

    Great tips! Everyone has their process. I would be lost without my Editorial Calendar! That alone literally holds my ‘blogging life’ together! Also, Bloglovin’! I have a category for all of my friends and blogs I read and comment on regularly. That way I rarely miss a post and can build on those relationships!

    Up to three months ago, I don’t need any planners because I almost never get any collaborations with companies and now I seriously need a planner because I’m losing track of time line! For the first time I’m feeling the pressure to get my shit straight. LOL!

      Hahahahahaha – this made me laugh, I totally understand where you’re coming from as I was liked this about a year ago – there’s just times when you feel you need to get more organised, sort everything out and get things on track! 🙂 xxx
