Are you feeling overwhelmed as a new blogger OR perhaps you are a seasoned veteran, but feeling like you are in a rut. Maybe you find yourself unable to keep up and stay organized with all the new collaborations waiting in the wings. Maybe you’re feeling blogger burn-out and wondering what you can do to press pause, regroup, and reset.
This is where I say, “Join the club!” But instead, I want to say I may have a solution to your blogger organizing woes. Read on to see what I came up with to solve my own blogging challenges.
As a homeschooling and homesteading mother with littles still under foot, running a website and blog, not to mention growing my holistic health coaching ministry, can really make for more anxiety and stress. Because I love sharing and helping others learn ways to promote more mindful living, I had to figure out a way to organize my own time better so that I could serve others better.
This professional blogging career can really take a toll on your self-esteem and can quickly take the wind out of your “Big Dream” sails. It is definitely not for the faint at heart and quite frankly, I think many of us enter into it not really knowing what to expect or what we are doing. I would venture to say that many lose heart and quit before they even get started. Being an influencer these days means you have to compete with hundreds of thousands of other bloggers to grow your audience. Well, fear not! I have something that you may find helpful in getting your blogging business in order.

I found that keeping track of all the different accounts and their passwords were challenging as I continued to build my home-based business. You need one for your blog or website, hosting company, apps that you may use for graphics, photos, resource sites, and of course, all your social media platforms. So, the Password Tracker was the first worksheet that I created with graphics that I found at CreativeMarket.com. If you are looking for quality graphics that you can use for your blog and create opt-ins for your readers, I highly recommend this resource. It has helped me prioritize better and stay on top of my blogging and coaching business.
“A dream without a goal is just a wish.” Last month, I sent out our monthly simple and natural living newsletter talking about how important it is to be clear about your vision and the steps necessary to reach your goal. This pretty worksheet will help you see your vision broken down at a glance and help you organize your top priorities.
Let’s face it, when you are starting out as a new blogger, the costs can add up. Being able to take note of where your money is going for your blog, will help you better manage your blogging finances and keep you from spending more than what is coming in. This Blog Finance Tracker worksheet can help you do that. Keep a page protector next to the worksheet in your binder so that you can easily store your business receipts for ease during tax time.
I love having a sheet that I can quickly add any new fellow bloggers or even collaboration partners. With all the business cards I received during the Haven Blogging Conference, I needed a way to keep all the new potential collaborators in one place. This has turned out to be most helpful.
I am finding that by keeping important documents, notes, and resources close at hand and organized together, is making life run a lot more smoother here in the hollow. I Hope that you will find this new and affordable resource helpful as well.
