One of my greatest weaknesses is stationary and in particular, I cannot resist a good notebook. I have separate notebooks dedicated to almost every area of my life, all of them themed. Yes, I should probably combine them into one all-purpose notebook like bullet journalers do, but the truth is I’m just not a one notebook kinda girl. There are too many great designs not to use them all!
My latest find was ‘A Blogger’s Journal‘ from Paperchase. It’s a notebook to help you plan and track everything for your blog, including upcoming posts, social media strategy and goals for the year. I thought I’d give you a peek inside before I scribble all over it!
This is the goals page, which has a space for monthly, weekly and daily goals, as well as the main goal of your blog.
On this page, you can record details of what your blog is all about and what you are hoping to achieve. It’s a good way to keep yourself focused. As you can see, I’ve made a start on this already.
On the sharing page, you can list blogs and groups to follow and sites to share your posts. There’s also space for a to-do list and a list of things to share.
The Build Followers page lets you list ideas for growing the audience of your blog. I had a lot of ideas for this page.
This space is for recording the stats of your top posts.
There are pages to help you plan ideas for your next blog post. I wish there were more of these, though!
At the back of the journal, there are blank monthly calendars for planning your blog posts and events.
There’s also lots of blank space for brainstorming ideas/brain dumping.
All of the pages are repeated several times, so there is plenty of space to record your ideas, even if you own more than one blog. So far, I like the look of this journal and am really excited to start using it to plan ideas for new blog posts and record important things I want to remember.
