Hello my lovely friends, today is an exciting day that I’ve been working towards for quite awhile, the release of the Celebrating Everyday Life FREE 2017 Blog Planner printable. When I released last year’s printable I wasn’t sure if it would resonate with other folks, well, a few thousand downloads later I realize that it does have a place in the world, so I am delighted to share with you a new edition for 2017! This planner has been such a blessing to me as I have grown, and continue to grow this blog, and it honestly thrills my heart to see it go out and be a blessing to others too!
The single decision to take a blog from hobby to business can be daunting, and even then, figuring out how to grow it takes time and effort, don’t let anyone tell you differently. The good news is that investing the energy into it can bring you rewards beyond your wildest dreams, as I can absolutely attest to. But, it is still work and you need a plan. This planner is simply one tool among the many that you will need, but it’s a big one!
I regularly invest in tools to help me learn and improve so that one day, I will be able to earn my living from the blog. I know that God has big plans for this blog in 2017 and I can’t wait to see all that happens, but I know that if I don’t listen to Him, make plans, and then follow through, nothing will get done. Having a planner like this – filled with 133 pages of tips, ideas, and inspiration – helps me get and stay on track.
I welcome you to
shout it from the rooftops share about this handy free tool on your social media accounts – the shares will bless me tremendously – but I do ask that you direct folks back to this page to download, meaning, please do not download and share the download link directly. Page views are important around here, so I appreciate you helping me to grow them by having friends visit here to get their very own free copy.
If starting or improving your blog is one of your goals this year, I am pleased to invite you to join me as I will be periodically sharing tips and tools for growing your blog into a profitable business this year – so stay tuned for some of those posts to begin popping up from time to time. The idea of turning passion into profit is huge to me so I’m excited to share this part of my journey with you too! In that spirit, I have just recently taken an online course called Pinning Perfect (affiliate link) – it teaches you how to really make the most of Pinterest. I’ve used Pinterest for ages and ages, but I recently realized I wasn’t maximizing the possibilities of it so I’ve decided to take a course to dig in and learn more and boy am I glad I did. I’ve already learned so much!
I recommend printing the planner at home – print double-sided to save paper – and then take it to your local print shop to have them spiral bind it for you. I had mine done at Staples. I also puchased the glitter tabs there. I can’t find this particular brand online (it’s by Studio C) but they had them last year and again this year in stock at Staples. I include directions on how to “assemble” the planner in the download folder. I used 15 tabs total (3 sets of 5 tabs). You need to insert these into your pages before they insert the spiral binding. It was about $10 for the tabs + the binding, a great deal for such a handy tool!
This is a zipped file, inside you will find the planner plus a directions sheet.
I hope you enjoy it and that it truly blesses you, especially if like me, you are in a season of growth! Here’s to your best blog year ever!
