Recently I shared my brand new 2018 Celebrating Everyday Life blog planner for all my fellow bloggers to enjoy! (You can read that post here) This is the exact planner that I use to help me with my blog and I’ve been making and using it for years.
It has really helped me grow my blog into a real business because it has helped me FOCUS.
I’m a super creative personality type and focus is not always easy for me. Something shiny flashes and my mind is off chasing it like a bunny!
So anything that can help me create a plan and then follow through is a major God-send.
Best of all, it’s had a major update with the content this year and really is better than ever!
One of the additions is the goal setting page.
I’ve got some big, BIG dreams for the blog and you bet I’m writing them down here.
Studies have shown that by writing a goal down you are more likely to achieve it. So yep, I’m writing these down.
How about you? Do you have some big dreams for your blog? I encourage you to write them down.
You don’t have to show them to anyone but you will know they are there, and it will help confirm your intent in your mind.
I like to look at this list REGULARLY.
Writing it once and forgetting it will not help.
Speaking of goals, I have some more great posts that can help you achieve yours!
2Have you ever used a 9 grid? It is a game changer! I have a free 9 grid for you here!
3Trying to find your passion? Check out my 9 Questions to help you find your purpose!
Each month is filled with tools and worksheets to help you stay focused (there’s that word again!)
Seriously though, it’s so easy to get distracted in our daily lives, isn’t it?
In this planner I’ve packed it with so much to HELP YOU. Including:
- Long-Term Goal Setting
- Dream BIG Planning Space
- Year-at-a-Glance Calendar

The planner is 181 pages of Blog Planning awesomeness! It has everything you need to jumpstart your blog mojo for 2018!
In years past I’ve had Staples spiral bind the planner for me, but this year I’ve used the ARC (or Discbound) method to bind it. And I’m LOVING it! Seriously!!
Basically, the ARC system is a specialty hole punch which you insert discs into to hold the pages together.
The reason that I love it so much is because it is INTERCHANGEABLE. I can move pages all around if I decide I want things in a different order (which you cannot do with spiral binding).
AND, I can remove the pages when I’m done and reuse the discs and cover in a NEW notebook! score!
I bought my Martha Stewart blue cover and inserts at Staples and am very happy with them!
There are a lot of options for disc notebooks and supplies on Amazon here. (affiliate link)
