New in: The Bloggers Planner
When it comes to blogging, organisation and planning is key! When I found this planner I knew I had to have it! A planner created by bloggers scecifically for bloggers. What's not to love?
I literally recieved my Planner via Courier 2 hours ago so I have spent 2 hours drooling over it. This won't be a review as such but more of a First Look/First Impressions as I'm one of the first few to get one.
The Bloggers Hangout is an online community that I'm part of which connects bloggers. So you can only imagine my excitement when I got a Launch email for this Planner! With 3 sizes and a customisable option, these chic planners are ideal for both blogger and non-blogger alike.
These planners come in A6, A5, A4 size, matte/gloss finish and a choice of quotes or blog title for the cover. I have the A5 size, matte finish because I thought that was a pretty good size for me. The A5 costs £34.99 with free shipping worldwide (bonus! ) The site does show a spiral bound version but it's not currently available due to poor printing quality but I love this hardback version all the same because it feels like I'm journaling!
The Planner is printed June 2015 to June 2016 so you don't miss out on any months nor due you have to buy 2 planners in the year when the new year rolls around. It has year view (pictured), month view and week on 2 pages.
Each month is kicked off with a different inspirational quote (pictured). Then there is a month view calender featuring a Wishlist on one side. With the blank Ideas and Notes pages you can draw, doodle or plan post ideas etc. The week starts on a Monday with your Goal For The Week. Each day offers space for a Note, To Do bullet points, Menu Plan and a Don't Forget memo. Sunday takes a page for itself with added Incomings, Outgoings and Saved boxes for budgeting, a Highlights of the Week space and Don't Forget note with check boxes for Leave Comments, Treat Yourself, Complete your goal for the week.
At the end of each week there is also a 2 page content planner with the space for 4 posts. Each Post Planner has the Title, Publish Date and Time, Category, Keywords, Main Ideas, To Do as well as a checklist including Draft, Visuals, Edited, Scheduled, Published, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+ and Bloglovin'.
At the end of each month there is a Look Back chapter for the month just ended. A 2 page spread with a list for the Month Favourites, Hauls and Stats.
I am very excited to get cracking at my planner! It should be with you in 8 to 10 days (if you can wait that long!). I ordered it on the 5th of June, recieved confirmation of my order on the 7th (They were setting up a new email for the panner orders), recieved my dispach email on the 16th and it arrived here in Switzerland today, the 19th of June. So that was a total of 10 within days! The team are super helpful too so if you have any questions just email or tweet them and they get back to you ASAP.
