I love blogging and I love planning. I like knowing what I am going to post about. However, there are times when I just write and ignore my plan. Sometimes that is the best way to go.
I like having an idea of what I am going to write about and that helps me think about and look for things that relate to that topic.
I love the Kikki K monthly desk planner. I was going to get the A3 size one, but decided on the A4 one due to price and also desk space.
I take a look at it on a Sunday so then I can start thinking about the blog posts for the week.
It helps having this as a sort of ‘brainstorm’, especially when it is so easy to get stuck on ideas. If I end up writing about something different, I use the idea that I was ‘supposed’ to write about in another month. It’s flexible. It’s not set in stone.
I used to use a google calendar and put all the posts on there but I’ve found it much easier writing it down. It’s easier for me to access it on paper too, because I don’t have to actually go to calendar. I’ve always been a paper and pen person, especially for remembering things!
I’ve also been working on my photos for my blog. I noticed a lot of bloggers add pretty things like flowers, so I decided to give it a go. I managed to sneak outside in my PJs and grab some lavender off our lavender hedge and also a random flower petal I found on the ground.
Planner: from Kikki K – you can probably find this one, or ones like it, on their website or in their shops.
Pen: from Hema (shop in the Netherlands and my favourite place to find stationary when I go there).
