NEW Catholic Blog Planner for 2015!

Last year in my attempt to get more organized, I compiled my own Catholic Blog Planner complete with

  • a 12 month calendar including key Catholic Feast Days and Seasons, space to record top referrers, top posts, giveaways, reviews, guest posts and events happening that month
  •  a table of PASSWORDS,
  • a table of blog stats on an increasing number of social media venues
  • a log template of guest posts, contributor articles and giveaways I participated in

Finally, I had one binder to include written records of key passwords, contact information, dates and all those pesky details I expect to remember at the time only to forget them well before I need the info again.
