USE A CALENDAR
I get the standard square ones and then cut them in half up the middle to make 2 stacks of skinny Post-Its.
I often stick blank Post-Its up too. I try to blog consistently (by choice – bit gives me something to work towards) so I put up blank notes on days I want to do a post, even though I don’t yet have an idea of what to blog about.
– blog posts (you may also like to split these further, such as one colour for cooking, another for craft)
– posts that can’t move (such as guest posts, sew-alongs, Father’s Day)
– advertising commitments
Use the Margins
Along the bottom of the calendar, I will stick a couple blank Post-Its. If I’m in the middle of a project and have an idea for another, I write it on one of these. I take them down to the computer later and add the ideas to my spreadsheet (see Part One).
You can see all of this in my calendar above, which is for September, October and November. I’ve now covered the main tools I use to keep me organised.
