A goal of mine this summer was to update my blog and transfer from the Blogger platform to WordPress. I’m a couple of months out from the change, and I’m happy with the results so far.
Planning to blog is something new that I’ve added to my organizational lineup. I wanted to keep it simple since I am not a full-time blogger. I created a Blog Post Planner on Canva that allows for me to brainstorm and plan on a single page.
I also created another page that I print on the back of each planning page. It allows for ideas for future posts. The Blog Post Ideas page is helpful in channeling all my blog post ideas in one place. I could print the pages separately, as well. The pages give me several options to play with during my planning. You can click on either image to access the blog planner and print it out.
As I continue to grow my blog, my goal is to blog more frequently. It is a goal that I need to continue now that the school year has begun. I often find myself regrouping at the end of the week, and my blog gets pushed to the bottom of my priority list. I have incorporated time in my weekend schedule to blog this fall and winter; the time that would have spent on planning the classroom curriculum in the past. With the hard work that I’ve put in over the last school year and this summer, the planning is essentially set, and the blog can take a more prominent place on my to-do list. It isn’t for lack of wanting to do it. It was a matter of creating the time to make it happen. Hopefully, I can meet the goal I have set once school gets further underway.
Until next time,
