How do you blog? How do you take note of post ideas? Here are 3 systems that have proven to be popular among bloggers – including ours.

Evernote

Here’s how we Use Evernote as our Blogging Calendar. It’s a very simple system where we create a note for each month. In each note, we have the day of the week, date and then we write in our post ideas beside it – when we think of something. We shuffle around posts to different dates, delete when we need to and cross it out when it’s written and scheduled on the blog. Kim and I share the Notebook for our blog, so we both can work on it in real time – Co-Blogging Using Evernote.

Trello

Boho Berry described how she uses Trello as an Editorial Calendar. Trello uses a unique system of boards, lists, cards, labels, and checklists to help you keep everything organized and tidy. Once you get the hang of it, it really becomes a breeze to manage your blog and see everything you have going on at a glance.”

Google Calendar

Using Google Calendar for your blog is super easy because 1) it’s free and 2) it’s already set up as a calendar. My favorite tutorial on how to use it effectively is at 7 Steps to Use Google Calendar to Create Your Editorial Calendar.

The color coding of different post types is a pretty sweet feature too. No fancy templates required.

    1. @Resh I know quite a few people who do it by hand too, and some don’t do it at all. Whatever works 🙂
