Blogging Insert Walk-Thru

20160821_145736

My blog posts have their own notebook in my traveler’s notebook system. Big surprise, right? I see posts on the various TN FB groups about getting organized for your blog, etc. While there are some pre-done inserts available on ETSY, I prefer a more free form approach. Here’s a walk-thru of my Blogging Notebook.

I don’t have a Table of Contents or Index, like my Collections notebooks. I start out with a couple of pages for BPIs (Blog Post Ideas), then I started a post immediately (Mel’s Travel Flex), when I should have set up my Completion Charts—whoops!

Completion Charts.

Highlighted = complete.

These charts help keep me on track of what needs to be done for each post. The letters stand for: Written, Typed, Pictures, Video, Compiled?, Posted. 99% of the time I handwrite my posts in the notebook, but some are written on the computer. Despite starting to do my writing on the computer, I still like having a notebook dedicated to blogging because it is a great way to jot down post notes, video needs, and picture needs.

Here’s a peak at the posts themselves:

See how much has been added!

How much more I have to go in this insert.

Roughly half-way through.

I also keep an On Deck list of posts that have been compiled and ready to be posted, just in case I don’t have a set post up and ready on my Editorial Calendar, in the Collections notebook.

Once this insert is filled up, I’ll be adding a notebook to my B6 EDC. I’ve already experimented with hole punching B6 inserts so I can have my ideal set up. As much fun as having a single bound notebook is, I’ve been keeping my hand-written blog posts in a binder long before I started using Traveler’s Notebooks. And I’d like to continue that.
