Ever since I started this blog in 2012, I've been searching high and low for the perfect blog planner. I've tried making my own, a regular notebook, a regular weekly planner, tried Google calendar, and nothing was ever good enough for me.
When I started my Louis Vuitton obsession this month, I realized that the PM agenda would be perfect to create my own little blog planner. I started viciously searching Etsy for the perfect layout and came across a few that fit the planner size (the PM is ultra small and is equivalent to a pocket agenda).
The one that I mostly use are these from Whatever Bright Things. She was the sweetest shop owner ever because I asked her if there was a way to make these for the pocket agenda and she gave me instructions on how to do it. When you print these, just print 4 on a page and they'll be the perfect size for the PM agenda.
This pack comes with so many different pages; everything from dashboards to analytics to blog goals and editorial calendars.
I also purchased the GirlBoss Planner Dividers from My Paper Love Studio to better organize the planner; they're super cute and make the planner even more special. I organized into four different sections: Goals, Editorial, Social Media, and Random Notes.
Before I purchased the Whatever Bright Things blog planner, I bought the personal size blog planner from Mockeri. I had to scale these down to fit inside the PM agenda but it worked. I just felt like I needed something more than just blog post planning; I wanted the whole kit and caboodle.
I felt like I needed a regular notepad part of this planner so I bought the 'Brilliant Ideas' notepad from Alinas Creative Corner; she has some other great planners as well!
I've been using this for about 3-4 weeks and it's been working out great. The planner comes with me everywhere and is so handy. It's adorable, compact, but I'm still able to feel like I'm really planning things out.
I highly recommend the Louis Vuitton agendas (pre-loved on Tradesy or eBay) or just making your own planner in general. I don't think I'd ever use this as a regular agenda as I love buying one from Henri Bendel, Kate Spade, or Lilly Pulitzer, but it's a nice alternative for the blog!
What kind of blog planner do you use?
