So, I’m a bit… scatterbrained. Needless to say, there are a zillion things that run through my mind a day, many of them I’d like to write about, most of them forgotten. Or even if I do remember, I’ll sit down to write and have so many things floating through my head that I can’t focus.

I do well with lists and writing things down so a few weeks ago I put two and two together and *duh!* I bought myself a notebook just for blogging. It’s about 5X7 and an inch thick, but the best part is that it’s divided into three sections, allowing me to separate my note taking into 3 different task categories: Blog Maintenaince, Blogging, and Monetization.

As I think of things to write about, or things that I need to work on, I jot them down in my notebook. Later when I have time to write or work on the blog, a quick reference of the notes can get me started in the right direction in just a few minutes.

Also every few days I can intentionally set aside a few minutes to work on some kind of blog maintenance or monetization issue and since I have them all written down, I can knock 2 or 3 tasks off the list in a minimal amount of time.

Streamlining is good.

What tools do YOU utilize to stay on top of blog tasks or writing topics? Or if you’re not a blogger, what kind of projects do you work on that might benefit from a handy dandy 3-subject notebook?

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
