Organizing Coffee&Glitter

Hi dolls! So when I first started C&G, I would have put money on it that I "had it all figured out" and that it wasn't that hard and to be fair, the concept of blogging is not hard however, to be "successful" and make friends while blogging, I feel like you have to put much more into it.

People do not account for the comments or questions they may get or the act of sponsorships/being sponsored. Blogging really can be a full time job. Anyways, when I first started, I was trying to take tips from other bloggers and google ideas of how to keep organized and I found that none of them worked for me so, I took things into my own hands and cam up with my own forms/sheets that work perfectly for myself and Coffee&Glitter!

1. Collab/Series Form: so, I am like an OCD planner and I like everything to be in order and just so. Yes, I can see how this may be extensive but, I like what I like. Basically, I make a rough draft of the general collab idea then preplan and schedule the dates for the posts and have a little synopsis of what will be talked about. 

2. The Up&Coming, due to how I plan my blog, I tend to schedule posts way in advance so, I like to have them all written down in a place other than online incase something comes up or whatever. I also like a paper copy incase I am out and need to get props or take pictures or something! The check marks are categories of W (written), P (pictures), S (scheduled) and L (live) which I check off as I go along.

3. The Series Sheet again, this is just a hard copy of how I schedule posts and the order. As the time goes on, I add dates as well.

4. finally, the Sponsorship Sheet. This sheet is pretty self explanatory. Basically, I use this sheet to keep track of how much I spend or earn on within the sponsor world. I like this sheet because it keeps me from spending too much or spending in the 'wrong' places. 



Do you organize your blog a specific way?

  2. Great organization tips! I wish I planned my posts out this far in advance lol. I simply have an Evernote checklist with a bunch of ideas on it and I check them off as I write about them. At the most I think I schedule posts 2-4 days ahead of time if I'm being good.
