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: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
