Today I want to talk about getting shit done. At the heart of every blogger’s bag, you can bet there’s a notebook. Filled with ideas, notes, lists, to do’s and schedules. Now I don’t know about you, but there is nothing better than a brand new, fresh and sweet af looking notebook. Something you cant wait to dive in and fill the pages of.
This month I decided to get my butt in gear and GET ORGANISED. There is nothing worse than being a scatter brain blogger and though I’ve gotten away with it for the last 2 years, now that my schedule is a lot tighter, my ways of planning has went completely out the window.
Whilst rummaging around TK Maxx, something caught my eye… the most perfect notebook I ever did see. I’m no stranger to Tatty Devine, I’m an avid lover of their jewellery and own many a piece from their collections over the years. So I couldn’t NOT pick this up… For one, Labyrinth is my favourite movie of all time. Instantly sold.
I decided to use this notebook for a multitude of purposes. At the back, I’ve headed each page as following:
- Blog Stats
- Instagram Followers
- Youtube Stats
- Ebay Selling vs Buying
- Monthly Tips (at work)
- What I’ve read/watched
Doing this, I can keep track of my progress and watch how I grow (or don’t) every month. I also want to keep track of some more personal things like the amount of tips I make each month which I’m saving, any new reads or watches and the dreaded how much i’ve spent on eBay compared to how much I have made. (I forsee a lot of red on this page!)
At the start of my notepad, I’ve started noting down all my blog and youtube ideas, which I plan to score out with a highlighter once I have written or recorded.
In the middle is a bit of an assortment. I have all my notes for each blog post and video to record.
THEN.. believe it or not, I managed to find the “keep me posted” post it notes on a follow up TK Maxx visit the week after. I’ve decided to use these post it notes and page markers in my date book, along with my shifts and social plans, I can use the page markers to keep tabs on exactly when I have my blog and videos scheduled. The post its I can use to plan in advance and take off once completed.
I cant wait to fill these pages.
