    This is amazing! As a newbie to the blogging world I am loving your blogging 101 series and especially this post. I hear the word editorial calendar thrown but had no clue really what it meant. Thanks Amanda, you rock!

    Happy Tuesday //

    I’ve actually gotten a planner that I include posts in, but I’d like to start using a spreadsheet instead. Great idea!

    One of my goals for next month is to start an editorial calendar, but I had not thought about doing it in spreadsheet form. I love the idea of using Google Docs because it makes it so easy to edit on the go!

    I agree with Megan! Such s good series to stop by and check out your next set of tips :) Thanks love. This one came in handy for scheduling all 8 of my contributors’ articles!

    Love this post!! As a new blogger, this post is super helpful! I have been looking at all kinds of examples of editorial calendars but this is the simplest, most effective one I have seen. I’ll definitely be giving this a try! Thanks!!

    Thank you for this post! As I mentioned to you before, I’m working on learning as much as I can about blogging (and website design, original photography, etc.) and eventually planning to re-launch my current blog! I’ve been reading about editorial calendars and some of them just seem so complicated (and some are unnecessarily complex). I love that your spreadsheet is simple and easy to keep all the important details in one place!

    One of the biggest things I want to improve on is posting consistently, so I know this calendar will help me!

    Something else I may consider adding to this is to track when and where I post about the blog post on social media sites. I want to make sure I’m sharing the link effectively across channels (and also eventually circling back for “From the Archives” or “ICYMI” type posts)

      I’ve been chipping away at building my calendar and totally forgot about “ICYMI” type posts! Thanks!

    Ugh. Sorry for the multiple comments – I keep thinking of something else as soon as I hit send!

    Regarding sharing to social media, do you automate that process? If so, what do you use for planning and automating your social media posts?

    Thanks for the downloadable spreadsheet! I just started my blog and want to be able to coordinate all the content I hope to put in cohesively — I think this’ll be a huge help!

    Question: Do you have a set organization for your weeks? Like, you’ll definitely post one career, one blog 101, one beauty, one fashion, etc. per week or do you mostly go with the flow? Or is this something that’s largely handled by the combination of blog, FB, insta, etc.?

    […] the best option. A blog I follow, Advice from a 20 Something, recently posted about her editorial calendar and how she keeps track of her schedule and I thought it was a great method to use. Whatever format […]

    This post is so helpful! I am still pretty new to blogging and trying to get myself organized! I’m so happy I stumbled upon this post! Thank you so much! :)

    I’ve been blogging for a little over two years just by the fly off the seat of my pants method and realized I needed to get more serious! I just found this post and it is super helpful!
    Thank you for this series!
