{UPDATED} My Blogging Calendar {How I Organize My Posts}

Happy September and Happy Father’s Day!! πŸ™‚ Spring has Sprung!


So for once in my blogging life I decided to be more organized regarding my posting.

Wow. *you gasp and die* Because I’ve made a schedule before, but I’ve NEVER actually followed it.

I’ve seen a couple bloggers creating blogging notebooks to organize their blogging. I tried it, but, knowing me, I can’t be satisfied with whatever I’ve come up with. I think wasted about three notebooks trying to make it ‘perfect’. I only wanted to organize my posts after a while though, so I found my aesthetic looking calendar and did a little blogging organizing, and decided I’d share it with you, in case you’d like to try it.

If you only want to organize your posts, this might work for you. I used to do my post ideas in a document (I didn’t follow it though :P), but I couldn’t see it at a glance. But with a calendar you can see it up on the wall and know which post you will be posting on the day. πŸ™‚

Also, sorry for the blurry photos! (although I edited them a little using Canva) I took them using my Mom’s phone.

|What you need|

  • Sticky notes
  • A calendar
  • A pen/pencil
  • Some post ideas

|What to do|

Step One: Grab some sticky notes and write a post idea on each one.

Step Two: Stick each of them on the day you wish to post it.

This is so that you know which day it actually is because a lot of calendar day boxes are pretty small. You will probably already know which day it is for (because EYES) but I thought it was pretty. I wouldn’t recommend doing it if you’re not sure about the day you’re going to post it, because you might be moving posts around a bit and the top half of the heart will still be on the calendar.

Untitled design-1.jpgAs you can see, at the bottom of the top page, IΒ cut the sticky notes at the bottom so that when I fold the calendar, they won’t get all crinkled.

The reason I use sticky notes is just in case you want to move the posts around if something pops up, or you want to post something else before it.

This might not work for bloggers who post everyday, because then the posts will overlap each other. It will work though, if you put a sticky note below another sticky note like this:

Step Three: Make sure to write on the day boxes when you have something going on, so that you know when you can and can’t post.Β 

Step Four: (optional) Make little designs on the sticky notes. I put dashes around the edges of the papers on some.

Step Five: You’re done!


UPDATE:

However, if you don’t have a calendar, here is another way you can see your post ideas at a glance.

Sorry for the terrible quality! 😦

I only have six boxes for the posts, but you can put seven if you make the rectangle at the top smaller.

I use mine as a to-do list. and as you can see I don’t have anything to do

The problem with this one is you can’t keep the posts on the paper; you’re going to have to change them once the week is over. But with the calendar you can keep them as a reminder of what you’ve been posting.

And with this, it’ll work if you want to post everyday. πŸ™‚

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this post. πŸ™‚

chat with me!

Let me know in the comments if you decide to try it! My schedule is three times a week on any day, but rarely everyday. What is your blogging schedule? Do you have a blogging notebook?

Why Fidget Spinners?

In case you don’t know what fidget spinners are (if you don’t, HOW. THEY. ARE. SO. POPULAR.) , they’re like tops, except with skateboard bearings in the middle and ‘caps’ on the bottom and top. You hold it in between your fingers where the middle bearing is and spin it around. There is also a diamond spinner which I think is really cool.

basic fidget spinners. you can get some really pretty ones too.

You can actually make your own fidget spinner. Obviously, it won’t spin for as long, but it will spin for pretty long. πŸ™‚

So first, how are they fidget spinners? Fidgeting is moving your fingers around, tapping the floor, and just basically not sitting/standing still. πŸ˜› With a fidget spinner, you just hold it in between your fingers and watch it spin. Sure, you can do tricks with it, like jump it to one finger to the other and stuff like that, but without that, you just watch it. My brother said it was created for anxiety and to help kids concentrate in school, but all the kids I know who have fidget spinners say that their teachers take them of them in school. XD

I’m not saying fidget spinners are bad, though. You can find some really pretty ones; and that’s literally why I like fidget spinners. Coz THEY. ARE. SO. PRETTY. You can get some really pretty metal ones. SO. SHINY. They also come in different shapes that make them so gorgeous! *screams

But I don’t have one. Coz I tap my feet when I’m sitting down and bored. πŸ˜›

p.s

my brother wanted to do a section of this post about how to get a good fidget spinner, so here is his part of the post: (I also decided to do it in a question and answer form)

What’s good about a fidget spinner?

Well, it’s fun and is so called to be anxiety relieving. You can get it even if you don’t have anxiety πŸ˜› and for something to do when your bored

What’s better: a two sided fidget spinner or a three sided one? Why?

I’m gonna get right to it. 3 sided. Why? a 3 sided fidget spinner, when you spin it and move it around, it tends to spin longer. 2 sided ones don’t spin very long if you move it around. It stops in 2 seconds. but, if you don’t move a 2 sided one around to much, its pretty much fine. so all in all, I would say 3 sided ones, but 2 sided ones are alright.

How do I know if the fidget spinner I want isn’t good quality?

Try test it, and the main things you want to be aware of is the middle bearing. some bearings tend to push out a little, so look out for that. make sure it is tight. You can notice that if it doesn’t wobble when you spin it. second, is that it spins fast. (obviously you already know to look out for this.)

How do you know a fast fidget spinner when you test it?

If it looks like it’s spinning fast, basically.

Overall, what would be the best fidget spinner to get?

im gonna cut to the chase. 3 sided, tight bearing, quiet bearing, spins fast.

ciao.
