7 Free Options For A Blogging Calendar

7 Free Options For A Blogging CalendarBlogging has been on my mind lately.  When is a good time to blog?  What do I want to blog?  How do I find the time to blog?  That last one is a big one for me.  In order to be more organized, I decided to do a blogging calendar. How do I find the time to blog? The solution: a blogging calendar to keep me organized! 

Being the researcher that I am, my first step was to see what other people are doing.  Here is a variety of possibilities for a blogging calendar:

1) Hubspot offers a free editorial calendar in form of an Excel spreadsheet.  You can get the free download here after you answer a couple of questions for them: http://offers.hubspot.com/blog-editorial-calendar.

2) WordPress Editorial Calendar plugin offers a great overview in calendar form when you have your next post scheduled or when you published a post.  See more about the plugin here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/editorial-calendar/

3) Google calendar is another option for a blogging calendar.  Amy Porterfield has a great explanation on how to set up your Google calendar as a blogging calendar here: http://www.amyporterfield.com/2012/10/google-calendar-editorial-calendar/.

Even though, I like the calendar in electronic form, here are some great (and free) options for a printable blogging calendar:

4) Weekly blog planner http://www.scribd.com/doc/122722808/Weekly-Blog-Planner. I like that I can check off the social networks I posted the blog post to.  Also, the reminder about the blog maintenance is great.

5) Confessions of a Homeschooler has a great free monthly blog planner http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2014/11/2015-blog-plannerfree.html.  I like the monthly overview, the blog advertising pages and the brainstorm pages.

6) You can find a whole collection of free printable blog planners at Fab N’ Free http://www.fabnfree.com/2012/08/30/20-free-printable-blog-planners/.  Browse and see which one you like best.

7) Blogenergizer has another great and free blogging planner.  You can get the download here: http://blogenergizer.com/.

With all those options available, I am curious: let me know in the comments what you use to plan out your blog posts.
