Every blogger needs a little inspiration from time to time, as well as practical ideas for keeping their thoughts organized!
I’ve seen some great blogging organization and inspiration articles this month, and today I want to share some of my own favorite blogging organization resources.
1) My Blog Plan by Hedua.
I love, LOVE this planner. It has everything I need to stay organized with my own post ideas, contributor and guest posts, deadlines, social media, blogging to-do’s, etc. Plus it’s super cute!

2) Balanced: Finding Center as a Work-at-Home Mom by Tricia Goyer.
This is hands-down the BEST book I’ve ever read for work-at-home moms! Tricia is very real and honest, and in addition to fantastic work-at-home tips and realistic scheduling ideas, I felt like she was giving me permission to do something I love in addition to raising my children.
I have an entire board dedicated solely to blogging and writing! Any articles I read that have excellent marketing ideas, writing inspiration, monetization tips, etc. get pinned onto this board so I can find them easily when I need to.
Even though I unfriended everyone on Facebook, having a Facebook account has been vital to my blogging organization. I’m a member of a few closed/secret groups for the sites I contribute to and it’s really nice to be able to simply log in so I can see updates and news from the site owners.
Bonus Item: A tidy house.
While this isn’t technically a physical blogging resource, I absolutely can not be as creative when I’m surrounded by a mess! Investing the time upfront to create a clean environment not only benefits my entire family, but it also allows me to be able to work guilt-free because I know my home was taken care of first.
And if you’re struggling emotionally with finding a balance, then in addition to reading the book Balanced, make sure to read this short post about when your children just need you.
