2013 Blog-and-Home Notebook is HERE!

I am so excited today to announce my 2013 Blog-and-Home All-in-One Planner.  Last year’s planner turned out to be such a big hit, I decided to try again only this time instead of 19 pages of printables, this planner now includes over 70 unique pages!
Once again the Cornerstone Confessions Planner includes monthly planning pages, only this year I have also included US National Holidays and extended the calendar to encompass the full page.

In addition there are two printing options for each month:  one with some suggested monthly chores included and another with that section left blank for you to customize as needed.

You will also continue to find my weekly planning page with a menu plan option but now I’ve provided several other alternatives as well including one without a menu planner at the top and one without any suggested daily chores.  In addition, I’ve also provided a daily schedule planner to assist in thinking through those extra crazy days.

Next comes several house keeping tools which are all new this year: a movies to watch planner, a books read tracker, a books to read planner, a favorite children’s books tracker, a clothing needs list, a grocery shopping list, and a full-page menu planning page for those that prefer this option over the one on the weekly planning page.  While I will probably continue to use my weekly planning page with the menu planner at the top, the nice thing about this full-page menu planning option is that it provides you space to plan your prep work in addition to your meals.  Need to cook the chicken ahead of time for the soup tomorrow?  Mark it down in the “Next Day Prep” section.

Turning the corner to focus on blogging, I’ve included several blogging helps including a blog financial register, a mileage tracker, a future posts brainstorming page, a post planner, a potential guest post brainstorming page, a potential sponsors brainstorming page, a monthly statistics analysis page, and a looking ahead page complete with an advertising tracker.

To help with social media side of blogging, I’ve included a tweet tracker (for all those tweets you want to consistently remember to send out or for those quotes you want to remember to tweet later), a twitter addresses and hashtag tracker, a daily social media checklist, and a blog party agenda planner.  For details in how I use the blog party agenda planner, please see my post on last year’s agenda.  It has seriously saved me hours of partying.

The longer I blog, the more accounts and passwords I seem to acquire.  Although I often use the Quick Password Keeper app for most of my passwords, I’ve added several password keeping pages for all those who still like to see their information on pen and paper.  Alphabetically organized by company, passwords will be a cinch to find as long as you remember to write them down.
Finally, I’ve included both annual and monthly goal planning sheets broken down by focus area and category.  Planning like this has truly changed my life.  I now get so much more accomplished AND I accomplish more in a wider range of focus areas thanks to this form of planning that was inspired by the Money Saving Mom.  By first creating my annual goals around specific focus areas, I keep my eyes on what is really important.  Next I using my Goal Planning Tool Worksheet to plan out how many steps it will take to accomplish my annual goals.  Finally, I break down my annual goals to monthly snippets and place them on my monthly goal sheets.  With that accomplished, when it comes time to plan my Top 10 Goals of the Week, I first look at my monthly goals and then again breakdown those snippets into even smaller bite-size pieces so that by the end of the year I’ve accomplished nearly everything I set out to do.

And it all comes with your choice of covers.

As with my 2012 planner, I have still chosen to create a weekly tear-off pad for the back pocket of my  binder with my monthly calendar facing opposite.  Again, the current month is placed last in the notebook so as to be displayed alongside the weekly planner when laid flat on my desk.

Month to Week View

I also like printing the looking ahead page on the backside of the monthly pages.  This helps me when I am trying to plan posts and make time for other activities as I set up the next month’s calendar.  Other than that, I personally chose to print each of these printables front-side only.  That said, feel free to mix-and-match as best suits your needs.

Looking Ahead Page on the Backside of Each Month’s Page

In addition, I have now added 8-tabbed dividers to my notebook sequentially labeled:  goals, daily schedule, passwords, blog statistics, blog finances, social media, post planner, and calendar.  You may or may not need a specific section so feel free to adjust and organize your printables as will benefit you most.  I share that just so you have an idea for where to begin.

8-Tab Divider Labels

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I’ve also included two bonus pages: a year-at-a-glance for 2013 and 2014 and a Dates to Remember for Next Year page for when those guest posts begin to line up at the end of the year and you are not quite ready to plot them out on the calendar yet.

    Another awesome printable planner! Thank you so much, Kathy! Thank you especially for giving this away to your subscribers as a freebie – what a wonderful Christmas gift! I can use it this week as I enjoy the free babysitting services at grandma’s house when I take my annual retreat for goal-setting and planning :)
    Hope you and your family enjoy a joyful and relaxing holiday! Merry Christmas! May God bless you tremendously next year and always!

    Would like to have too if offering a discount as I am on a budget. I also can’t get the “Money Saving Mom” code to work. But if you offer a discount I will buy.

  3. says

    I am so sorry you all are having trouble getting the Money Saving Mom code to work. I re-entered it and you should be good to go now. If not, please email me personally and I’ll be glad to give you the code. Have fun planning!

  4. says

    Kathy this is fabulous. I’ve been looking for a home and blog planner for the last few weeks and this one will work perfect for planning everything. I was able to purchase it with the code and download it with no problems! Thank you!

  5. says

    Just purchased mine and really excited to put it to use…I love that you combine home/blog/spiritual growth all in one place. I have been on “blogcation/staycation” but this is exactly what I need to hit the ground running on January 7th! Thank you!

    • says

      Well thank you! I’m glad you found it encouraging. Last year I had a struggle trying to keep everything in order. I had a notebook for home stuff, a notebook for blog stuff, a separate to-do list, and then all my Bible study stuff. It was just getting overwhelming trying to keep up with it all. This is the result of much try-and-try again experiences to make it less overwhelming. Have fun getting back into blogging!

    I love your tools I have been searching for the perfect ones all over the internet and finally came across yours. Your website is so colorful and filled with a lot of information. I just became a mom and I am having problems staying organized and on top of things.

    • says

      Yeah! Glad you found it! And congrats on being a new mom. Personally I find the first year of new-momdom to be the most challenging when it comes to organizing. My saving grace was my daily to-do list of only 3-5 things. If I couldn’t get anything else done, if I knew I got those 3-5 things done I was accomplishing something and life would go on. LOL. Have fun getting organized! Hope it helps!

      Yes, and its over 140 pages long with lots of new options and a new design! I can’t wait to share it with you. It should be coming out by the beginning of December. Thanks for asking!

    Are you making a 2014 planner? Yours is so pretty and for the price I’d like to see if I could actually STICK to using something! Also, I’m from Canada and wondered if you could make the spot where you put the US holidays blank?

    • says

      I am and its fixing to come out in a couple of weeks. Canada holidays–you know I never thought about that. What US holidays are not Canadian besides Thanksgiving? Anything? I will definitely keep that in mind when making the planner. Good thought! Be looking for the new one to come out soon.
