2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

MY SUGAR FIX...

...don't we all have plans to be more organized in the New Year?  I know that I do!  I have organizational plans for every room in my house starting with my sewing room.  My plans of being more organized extend over to my blog.  A while ago I set a goal to write a minimum of 100 posts a year, and for the past 4 years I've been able to exceed that goal.

My most productive blog posting month of the year has been in November, because I've participated in the 30 day Blog-Like-Crazy Challenge.  My being successful in the challenge depended largely on a blog post editorial calendar that I used.  That calendar helped me plan and organize blog posts for the entire month.   I asked myself, "What could I accomplish (blogging wise) if I used an editorial calendar each month of the year?"


Today I picked up my sugar fix.  I love, love, love Sugar Paper Products.  They have just a tiny bit of bling and are so girly and elegant.  Of course I won't be posting everyday, but I'm going to see if  I can keep up with this blog editorial calendar all year long.

What type of planner/calendar do you use?
Do you keep an Editorial Calendar?

  1. I have a notebook in which I take notes on phone conversations I have (for business) and make myself a to-do list every day. (You can see where my holiday lists come from, right?) Your planner sure is pretty! I'm a real calendar girl myself, too, never mind that "keep it in your phone" thing the kids do...not that I have such a phone...

  2. Oh Ms. Faye! I know I should but I don't use a calendar (enter sad face here!). If I did, maybe there wouldn't be such long space between blog posts! However, I've made a goal of making 2017 a successful year for me and that means I need to get my act together! I have to check into Sugar paper products, never heard of them and thanks for the tip! BTW...you ALWAYS have very interesting posts that keep people wanting more!
