How do YOU keep your blog organized?

November 28, 2012 Random Ramblings 1

I recently realized how much work and organization is needed to successfully run a blog. I didn’t assume it would be easy but I never guessed what it really took. I thought my legal pads and various sticky notes, would be enough to make everything run smoothly. Of course all that did was bury my work desk, my home desk, my lampshade and the nightstand it sat on in sticky notes and crumbled up sheets of paper. So then I had the brilliant idea to just use my tablet. But that just added a billion little virtual sticky notes and a unsynchronized calendar to the mess. So I did what I always do when I’m confused; I asked Google. Just a tid bit of information for you, I’m 23, and in all honestly I can’t remember what I did before Google, and I don’t want to. I thought it would be easy enough to type in “blogger planner/calendar” and have a thousand results come up. But that’s not what happened. I found a few organizational blogs who had templates for making a planner and while a lot of them were very helpful it just didn’t seem like it was enough. So I made my own blog planner “prototype” (fancy-pants), and trust me it is so far from perfect it’s actually pretty funny. Which brings me to why you are here. I want the help of my fellow book bloggers to perfect the perfect book blogging organizational system. I know different things work for different people but all it takes is a variety of options to make a few different combinations for individual perfection. So shoot me a e-mail, leave a comment, link websites to me on Facebook or Twitter, and tell me what you do to keep your blog organized. Give me the nitty gritty, the good the bad the colorful. I want to know it all. I’m really curious about this whole underrated part of blogging and I will be emailing various blogs to ask for their help. So pitch in if you can.

Now here are a few more really pretty pictures I FOUND ON GOOGLE.  It’s the little things for me 🙂

    how funny! well we are semi new to the blogging world ourselves . and my partner in crime, Krisha , lives in a different state than i do. so needless to say its hard to keep everything straight. i think the most helpful thing i have found is our Google calendar. we have a gmail email account for the blog and there is a tab at the top that takes you to you ” Google Calendar” this is super helpful in that we can both post stuff on it, and see what the other one has posted for certain days. we can also put up our weekly memes that we take part in, what the topics are for those days, and what post, or book tours we have to post on the calendar as well. not sure what we would do without this calendar it is SUPER helpful! … aside from that i have some virtual post-it notes i keep on my desktop that remind me what i have to do.. what reviews to write and what not. great post! and i totally wish i had an awesome work space like those pictures! i would be super organized ! – Katie @ Inkk
