Mosaics Review: Infarrantly Creative Blog Calendar

I like to be organized...I need to be organized...I'm just not great at finding products that help me accomplish those goals.  I usually take a random piece of scrap paper, jot something down and wonder where I put it later!  When it comes to my blog, I never even thought of using a planner to help me plan, gather my thoughts, keep track of stats, etc....well, DUH!! 

I've always been a random blogger. I blog what's going on orwhatever strikes me at the moment.  I wasn't really sure how I would like being more intentional about my blog posts.  When you've always done something one way, it's hard to change. 

When looking for a blog planner, I knew I wanted something simple to use and something to fit my needs now.  That's when I saw Infarrantly Creative's calendar!  It was perfect for me!  

There are 4 different downloads to print: 

Monthly with a design
Weekly with a design
Monthly without a design
Weekly without a design.

I choose to print the planners with this cute background design:

Infarrantly Creative gives you a great tutorial on how to use your new calendar planner, as well as suggestions on how to bind them into a book.  I actually just printed out a couple of months and the corresponding weeks and used a binder I had on hand.  

Here's what I really liked:

  • Seeing the whole month at a glance--I can plug in special days and other posts I know ahead of timeThen, see holes and plan out those days later.

  • The To Do list was great to help me break down posts and behind the scenes work on my blog.

  • The space to list ideas for post ideas was just what I needed--a place to jot things down that I wouldn't lose.

  • There is space to write extra ideas and even a box to plan encouragement to other bloggers (never thought about being intentional about that,either)

I'm not really big on tracking my stats, but I really appreciated how Infarrantly Creative approaches this topic.  She says, "Each week when I write down my stats it helps me measure myself against myself — which I highly recommend."  I like that!  

So, if you are looking for a simple, yet great blog calendar planner.  Check out this  free printable blog calendar at the Infarrantly Creative blog.   It was totally free to download and you can't beat that price!
