My New Favorite Blogging Tool

Contains affiliate links.

Carter Chaos has been around for a few years now. In the last couple of years, I feel like it has gone to a whole new level with product reviews and promotions. I've tried several different ways to keep track of all the posts I need to do, review products, and tax information.

The first year I just had a document on my laptop with a generic list. It helped me stay on track but was totally inefficient at tax time. Last year I made a document that was a little fancier with columns and categories. Again it was useful but not always efficient. This year I have started out with a spreadsheet. For some that would have been the first step but sometimes I am a slow learner. So while the spreadsheet has been working much better (I am up to over 50 reviews/promotions/ special posts this year!) it still isn't giving me room for all the information I really need.

If you a new blogger and you plan to enter the world of reviews or earning money through your blog, you will find yourself in a sea of information, contacts, affiliate links, passwords, and more. It can quickly become overwhelming. Let me save you some time and frustration and introduce you to what I recently discovered: The Well Planned Blog Planner.

My Blog Plan dates from July 2014- June 2015 to match the other Well Planned Day planners. There are so many terrific features including: a Social Media Kit page, contacts page, affiliate program page, monthly blogging tips, social media party planner, and more. Each month includes places to record plans on a month calendar and a weekly planner.

As I really work to grow Carter Chaos, I am most excited about the Monthly Evaluation checker at the end of each month. Not only will I be able to record my most popular posts but I can also keep up with my average numbers and my income/ expenses. This is going to be SO USEFUL come tax time. At only $19.95, the Well Planned Blog Planner is a hugely helpful resource for any blogger.
