There are some things that bloggers really do need to streamline their posts, such as a scheduler or planner, and then there are other things that bloggers really want, just because they're awesome. I've recently come across one of both of these things and I wanted to share them, as I think other bloggers will fall in love as fast I did with both!
'Bloggers Gonna Blog' 8x10 print: I think I discovered this print through Instagram and fell in love immediately! I've recently been looking for pieces of decor to decorate our new Ikea Ribba shelves so I did a spot of googling and found this print via Papertie Affair on Etsy. It's an absolutely gorgeous metallic bronze and the print came beautifully packaged and is so well-made, worth every penny!
Top: I recently saw this ban.do planner being reviewed by another blogger and I loved it! I have somewhat of an addiction to gorgeous planners and usually have barely used one for a month before falling in love with another. Yet, I'm constantly in need of one to schedule my posts, so I splurged on this hoping it could hold my attention and so far it's done the job!
Middle - Bottom: You get an introductory page of cute stickers to use within your planner, and even a sneaky girl code (to decipher the secret codes hidden within the book).
Top: The best holiday page I've ever seen; lets you know all of the wonderful and weird days to celebrate that we wouldn't normally know about. National Compliment Day, anyone?
Middle - Bottom: I love the quirky little notes within the book, they're littered throughout and are such a great idea, makes dull planning alot less boring!
Top - Bottom: The title page of each month is an awesome (sorry, overused word alert) design/illustration or quote. PS. Being nice is seriously cool. ●ᴥ●
I adore this planner, it's so cute and quirky, and is 17 months long meaning I won't need a new one for ages *praying I don't find something more adorable*. I've only recently started using a planner for scheduling posts and surprisingly, I don't need it as much as I thought. It's handy to have an idea of which post is going live when so I can get a good head-start, but other than that I'm quite good at remembering when/how often to promote, etc. & since changing tactics after writing this post, blog planning & promoting seems to have come more naturally and organically and has lifted a weight from my shoulder, so if you're bogged down with insistent promotion, check it out — Why You Suck at Blogging and Should Probably Quit.
