I searched all over the net looking at various planners. It came down to a couple of key points for me.
1. I am not doing this for a business, so it didn't have to include financial information.
2. I share on Pinterest, Facebook, and YouTube, so I wanted to make sure I could include information and checklists to help with that.
3. It had to be simple and flexible so that I would use it, but also have enough space to plan, make checklists, etc.
This is what I eventually ended up with. I will include information on where I found all of these free printables so that if you want to check it out, you can.
I started with my Arc notebook, that I purchased at Staples. It is a full sized 8 1/2" by 11" notebook. I bought a zippered pouch that I put on the OUTSIDE of the planner, and I also used a Smash Book elastic band to hold it all closed.
The Mac and Cheese Chronicles. I am just putting the basic information about the posts here. This way, at a glance, I can see what I did, or what I am planning.
Template Trove. I'm not sure what I am going to do with them, but I thought they were cool, so I added them.
Living Live Brightly.
Oh My Handmade Goodness. I thought that if a daily post was super detailed that I could have a whole page dedicated to it. The beauty of this Arc planner is that I can add or subtract pages anywhere in the book with ease. (Gotta love that!)
Girl Loves Glam had some great information, so I included it in my notebook as well.
Ironic Adventures. I am jotting down ideas I have, blog to do's, etc, on these pages. I covered them up because I want you to be surprised.
"Printable Paper". They have an amazing assortment of papers you can print. This link takes you to just the "teacher" section, there are other sections. If you haven't, you should go check out this site.
"Sassy 6" lead by our awesome Stamp-Master Elsa!), Post Ideas, Post Index. I have one more tab, and I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet. I also have some Arc Pockets in the back to hold stuff as I need to.
That's it, my planner. I hope you liked it! I have just started using it, and so far...I love it. Hopefully it will keep me more on track with writing posts more frequently! Maybe I'll be so organized I can have themes! Maybe, just maybe. :)
Stay Crafty, My Friends!
