Blog Organisation + 3 Free Printouts


How many of you have blogging on the agenda for 2018? Whether your goal is to get organised with your existing blog or this is the year you will start blogging it always helps to be organised. I was never really organised in the beginning and it just didn’t work, I even started to dislike blogging because I wasn’t getting the time to sit down and enjoy the process like I previously had. I soon learned organisation was key and now it’s second nature to me so here’s a few tips I learned along the way.

*Keep reading for the three free printouts

Have a Filing System

I like to organise all my blog stuff into separate folders on my computer. Start with making a blog folder, followed by a folder for certain posts and one for photographs too. An example of my folder situation goes like this

  • Weesi’s World
  • Blog Post Ideas
  • Basics (profile pics, logos, cover photos)
  • Photographs

Take Note of Blog Post Ideas

Once you have an idea, write it down. Don’t leave it for later and think you’ll remember because chances are you won’t. When I’m out and about I like to make a quick note in my phone’s Notes app or keep a notebook asides for ideas. I have included a sheet for you to keep a list of all your ideas and check them off as you go along.

Expand On Your IdeasΒ 

Once you have an idea for a post, try to expand on it as soon as you can. Sit down and figure out the direction you want to go with it, what works and what doesn’t. Take note of the category and tags you can use as it will help you to figure it out.

Take Photos In Bulk

This saves SO much time. If your ideas are pretty much finalised, start taking the photographs that will accompany them. Try taking as many photos for as many posts as you can. You’ll be glad that you had them stored away when you’re ready to use them.

Keep a Weekly Blog PlannerΒ 

This is a really useful tool to aide you with blogging schedules, planning and publishing. A lot goes into making a single blog post, there’s the writing, photo taking + editing, proof reading and editing what you wrote. A weekly planner is great to jot down all the blog related work you want to do during the week. Monday evenings could be a writing day, Friday’s could be editing and Saturday’s reserved for photo taking and so on. Find what ever works for you and stick with it. I went through the trouble of making a weekly blogging planner so you don’t have to. πŸ˜‰

I hope you find these tips to be as helpful as I do, just don’t forget that blogging is meant to be fun and something you enjoy. I only recently decided to get more organised with blogging when I realised I could have been doing better with my blog and I thought I would share it with you. Please feel free to use any of the three printouts I designed.

    1. Thank you, Kendall! Taking photographs in bulk saves so much time. Omg, I see you guys are getting serious weather. Here in Ireland it’s cold (will be -6 tonight) but it’s no where near as bad as The States. It’s almost impossible to get photographs in the winter hours though.


  4. This is so helpful!! Thank you so much for the post and for the beautiful printouts – I can’t wait to get started with these!! πŸ™‚

  5. These are great ideas! I sometimes start drafts of posts when I have an idea pop in my head. That way I can revisit them when I sit down to blog. Good idea to take photos in bulk! I really need to get my photos organized. They are all in one folder now and it’s hard to keep track of them. Thanks for sharing your tips Denise!
