I have searched around and found various blog planners. I have not found one that exactly meets my needs yet, so I am working on establishing what I want in a planner. I definitely have to have a calendar so I know what is going on when. I do take part in book tours and take review requests, so I keep a schedule of when I need to have certain reviews or posts made. I don't want to have conflicting events or to miss a scheduled post. I want to stick to what I say I will do.
It is a good idea to pre-plan and pre-write posts when you know your schedule is going to be busy. I unfortunately forgot to do that this week. I have had surgery and attended a funeral. I had planned and posted for the surgery, but the day of the funeral I did not. So - this post - for the A to Z Blogging challenge should have been posted at midnight, but is late! Things do happen. I'm just glad it was a personal challenge and not something for a tour. So, I am working on a few things the rest of the week to get many things done in advance. Fortunately, I had taken part in Bloggiesta earlier, so I had many things cleaned up, scheduled and pre-planned. I am pretty much caught up, and ahead in many ways.
How do you plan for your blog?
