  1. My planner was a total game changer and I couldn’t survive without it! I haven’t used IFFT yet, but I’m going to look into it now. Thanks!

  2. I didn’t know there was an editorial calendar plug-in! I need to step up my planner game, but we plan out our month in a Google Doc first. Then, I go add the dates in my planner.

  3. I’m an old fashioned planner type gal – I have everything color coded and in one place, written down on paper like I’m 80! But it works for me. My blog posts are scheduled two weeks out and my editorial calendar is planned a month out. Being ahead helps TONS – I hate last minute posts!

  4. A planner definitely helps me and I also love to start drafts so I have something to work off of when I have time to write. Working plus being a mom and trying to fit blogging in can feel like a lot to juggle sometimes, but I love this community and the creative outlet it provides!

  5. I love my dayplanner for keeping everything straight — blog posts, day time job, kid activities, etc. =)

  6. I have recently started using IFFFT and love it! I start drafts whenever I think of something too so that I don’t forget. I do wish I was more organised though, I never stick to my blogging calendar and always forget to top up my Buffer!

  8. I need to start using either IFFFT or Buffer. I can’t keep up with posting on all the different social media accounts.

  9. I used to plan my posts…don’t know why I stopped but I have to start again! Will try the IFTTT 😉

  10. These are great tips. I have to try that WP editorial calendar plug in and make better use of my planner and hootsuite. I’m finding that as I get more inquiries it’s really hard to keep due dates and what not straight!

  11. I spent 50p on a 2016 diary in January which I use to write down my blog post ideas – there’s a lot of scribbled out notes and illegible writing though! *runs to get the editorial calendar plug in*

  12. I love all of these tools. I’m so glad that you’re able to manage your blog and your kids and still manage to have fun! We’re gonna have to check out that WordPress plugin!

  14. These are awesome tips. I’ve been so all over the place lately that it’s been difficult to stay organized. Co-Scheduel and Hootsuite are my saving graces.

  15. I had no idea about IFTTT. Thanks for sharing these awesome tips. I love to create many drafts, and get back to them whenever I am running out of ideas.

  16. I use IFTTT and love it and also have a ton of drafts ready for more editing and tweaking so that I always have a post ready. Lately I have been taking a look at my month view on my planner and putting in link-ups or posts I already have planned and then seeing what are in my drafts and scheduling things from there. It’s nice to get a look at exactly how much I have to do going in to the month. Great tips!

  17. Yes this is an awesome list. I could not live without Hootsuite. Before I started using that I felt like I couldn’t leave my computer so I could do my social media posting. Thanks for sharing.

  18. I love love love Buffer/Hootsuite combo. They keep the social media scheduling sane! I’ve yet to try the others on the list 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  19. Yes yes yes to Buffer and also IFTTT. I actually just learned about IFTTT a few days ago but I am already in love! Blogging really does have so many parts to it to make it successful so these are great tips!

  20. I need to check out IFTTT. I absolutely love the editorial calendar and I totally have a bunch of drafts! 🙂 Awesome 🙂
