Blogger Organization- How do you do it!

I'm not an expert at this at all so that is why I'm writing this post.  I feel like I'm all over the place- here and there and around that corner too!  I struggle with this day to day in just my life so thinking I would be an organized blogger is FUNNY! 

My search came up with these useful tools:

The Niche Blogger Blogging Organizer Workbook: Keep Track Of And Organize Your Blogs  WOW sounds like winner here. 
*******************************


Cool online ToDo list: http://todo.ly/
Easy to do and I set up some projects on it so lets see if this helps. Also you can color code it! So far I likey!   I got this info from http://www.bloggingot.com/blogging-tools/become-an-organized-blogger-with-todo-ly/.  Besides finding this cool site on there- Blogging OT is filled with some incredible info for bloggers.  Wow, looks like I might be spending some time on this site!  See this is why I don't get stuff done- distractions always get me.

********************************

HOLD ON...found a really cool site that might work better than the above because I can get it sent to me by email: https://www.rememberthemilk.com/  It also has some bells and whistles that I'm loving.  The one thing I really like it has a weekly planner that can be printed...AWESOME! 
********************************
During my search today I came across some great tips and some well I just didn't understand but hey I've only had one mocha today so maybe its not their fault.  Anyways this is what I learned:
  1. Planning- list of topics, keywords, have a notebook just for blogging
  2. Prepare- write blog post in advance (you know that day you have nothing going on but writing posts :) )
  3. Schedule/Routine- calendar when/what/where (I have a couple blogs)
Well lets see if this works!  If you have any other suggestions please let me know.

The only thing that keep me sane in organizing my blog is my editorial calendar. I don't know if blogger has that plugin or not.

The Reason You Come on March 9, 2011 at 7:56 PM said...

Here from Comment Hour. I'll check out the links you shared. I, too, have a hard time organizing my blog. I love blogging, but sometimes, it takes too much of my time and effort!

Making It Work Mom on March 9, 2011 at 8:05 PM said...

Love your blog! So cute! Thanks for all the links- I could use some organization.

I am a much newer blogger than you are. You seem to be doing quite well with your blog! I was recently told, "As far as blogging...do whatever you feel like...and it will fall together." I thought that was pretty good advice!


Visiting from the SITS Tweet Party #CommentHour!

I really need to get an editorial calendar under way. I have four blogs. It would be nice to have some post ready to go especially since I want to take April off.

I surfed in from Cocktail Hour.

Patrice on March 9, 2011 at 10:06 PM said...

Wow great ideas! I am definitely not an organized blogger! Sometimes if I have a lot of post ideas at once, I keep a list on my phone but other than that no organization! Thanks for the tips!

I'm afraid if I got an online to-do list, I would spend all of my time playing with my to-do list and never get anything done. Like in college...I spent more time organizing what I was going to study than I spent actually studying.
