Just a slightly formalised list for keeping track of my blog post ideas.
It has a space for the idea, and then three check boxes for marking when the post has been written, when images have been organised and when it’s finally uploaded / posted.
At the top are five prompts that I find can help with generating new ideas.

The PDF contains four pages in A5 size and are meant to be printed back to back (there’s a margin allowance for punching or binding). The first set of two pages are a back to back set with the prompts at the top of the first page. The second set of pages are a back to back set without the prompts.
My planner was starting to look like a disorganised mess of post-it notes, slips of paper and messy note pages. Each one contained a snippet of information I wanted to recall later – an idea, a quote I liked, random subject matter to Google, phone numbers, a website to visit …
In an effort to try and corral everything in a more organised manner I came up with these Idea Capture pages. They’re only really simple, 8 blank boxes on each page, but sometimes it’s the simple stuff that works best 🙂

The document has two pages with the margin on alternate edges so that they can be printed back to back and allow room for hole-punching or binding.
After trying a number of different diary / planner layouts, this is the format our family has been using the last few months. It has a week to a page, with a space for each family member. It’s nothing fancy, but I’ve put it up here in case you find it useful.

Here is the previous iteration too, this one is just a simple two weeks to a page.
