These days it doesn’t take much for me to find an excuse to use a planner. I’ve been on a planner kick for a few years now, starting with the Martha Stewart discbound planner, then moving into a Filofax last year. When I stumbled upon this adorable Studio C planner at Staples last month, I pretty much fell in love. I didn’t need a new planner by any means, at least until I started thinking about my blog. I’ve wanted to get on a schedule for my blog for a long time now and thought this was the perfect tool to keep me on track with which posts I wanted to publish and when.
The cover itself makes me happy to look at, and the glittery elastic band is a nice touch, too!
Inside, there’s a double sided front pocket, which is great to carry around all those loose papers I might write blog ideas on.
Okay, here’s one of my favorite parts of the entire planner – the colorful monthly tabs. There’s something about it that reminds me of the expensive Erin Condren planners that everyone loves. But this planner is incredibly affordable, so it’s like the best of both worlds. I wont lie when I say that seeing those colorful tabs make me a little happier on the inside every time I open my planner. The planner is based on the academic calendar year and starts in July and ends in June.
My next favorite thing are the colorful and uplifting quotes at the beginning of each month. It’s kind of what finally sold me on this planner.
Turn the tabbed page and you have a space for important dates (love the text on that, by the way!) and a place to write notes.
Next is the month-at-a-glace view with a space on the left to write monthly to-do’s.
Then you get into the week-at-a-glance section, which has a great amount of space to write down daily to-do’s, or in my case, a blog post idea. I might use small sticky notes to arrange when I want a post to go out and wont write it in pen until the week that post is set to be written and published, just in case my personal schedule changes or if I change my mind.
In the very back there are sections for notes and dates to remember, which is pretty handy to have!
Overall, I’ve really been loving this planner, especially as a blogging planner. I’ve found it’s already keeping me on track with my postings!
