Blog ¦ Keeping organised

Something I wasn't aware of when I first started my blog was how much hard work it takes to keep it organised and regularly updated. Today I thought I'd talk to you about some of the things I do to keep myself organised. 

Blog post calendars 
This is a quick and easy way of finding what I've already written about and making sure I have a nice balance between my posts. By using these I can see easily how many of each type of post I've put up. It's also just nice to look back on my previous posts and see what I liked writing about 6 months ago. 

My Filofax 
I wrote an entire post about my filofax //Here// I find it so handy as I can write ideas down whilst i'm on the go but I also put in all my posts and any blog achievements like 1200 followers on bloglovin and so. It's really nice to be able to flick through and see when I hit big milestones and I also find it really handy for if I'm out and I want to know what post has just been published. I also have a little section for my blog where I write down all the series I have going so I always know what number I'm up to and a little section to write down all of my favourites. 

A post planner
This is something I started at the beginning of January and I've found it's really helped keep me organised. Before I had a habit of taking photos for a blog post and then never actually writing said post. This way I write down the post idea take the photos and then I can see what posts I have to write, it's also good for if I have a bit of bloggers block because I know if i've got any post ideas already! I can also mark on here if i've put reviewed products on my product directory as I tend to forget to do that. 

Ideas bubbles 
I tend to go through stages with ideas for posts, for one month I'll have 50 ideas and then for the next I will only have 5. I never used to write down my ideas and by the time I got to taking the photos and writing the posts I had either forgotten them or decided I didn't like the idea. By writing them onto idea bubbles I've realised I can now easily go back to the bubbles if I'm feeling a little uninspired but it also helps sift out the good ideas from the bad ones. 

I'd love for you to let me know if you have any blog organisation tips and if you've written a post like this i'd love the link. 


  1. This is such A great post! I love how its all compact and togther. I did a post recently about apps to keep your organised, you can check it out here:

  2. I definitely must start using a calendar as I just scribble everything down in a random notepad!

  3. I've only just started my blog but this was incredibly helpful, I really like the idea of having a monthly calendar. Thank you so much for writing this! x

  4. Those blog post calendars are such a good idea! I love how clear and mapped out it is! might just give it a try myself
