What an editorial calendar is and how to use one!

One of my blogging goals for this year was to follow my editorial calendar. I didn't do very well at the beginning of the year, though, because I was using a paper copy. Usually, I prefer a tangible planner instead of an electronic one, but since my blog is online, it didn't make much sense for my planner to be offline. Finally, I got the idea to make an electronic one. I fiddled around on Word and Excel and finally came up with a format I like.

I just write what blog posts I'm going to do each week, and then highlight them once I've written and scheduled them. I've also noted when I need to submit my contributor post on Be a Warrior Queen and plan on reminding myself to schedule social media posts with it as well.

Creating the Excel document was pretty easy, but it was kind of time consuming, so I thought I'd post a link to it on Dropbox if you'd like a copy. You could definitely type yours up and print it if you'd like, or you could just keep it on your computer like I do. I wish you the best of luck in creating your calendar. :)
