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.

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 – Blog Planner
