How to Create a Simple Blogging Notebook to Keep Your Notes and Thoughts Organized

(This post contains affiliate links.)

As a blogger I am always taking notes or writing thoughts down. Instead of having pieces of paper everywhere, I decided to create a system that would help me keep all of these things in one location - a blogging notebook.


Whenever I use my computer, I have my blogging notebook next to me.


All you need to create your own blogging notebook is a notebook and some Post-it Tabs, 2-Inch Solid, Assorted Primary Colors, 6-Tabs/Color, 4 Colors, 24-Tabs/Pack. .

I'll share some of the tag headings I used for my notebook. Feel free to use these ideas or include the headings that work best for you.
  • Making money - Information pertaining on how to make money while blogging. 

  • Social Media - Tips relating to any type of social media

  • Blogging - Any information pertaining to blogging 

  • Website - Topics related to website design

  • Notes - Information from Webinars I participate in

  • Blog Hops - A list of blogs that offer link-ups, including the day of the week they post

  • Affiliates - Any information pertaining to affiliate programs for either research or participation

  • Article Ideas - Topics which I feel will make interesting posts (such as this one) :-) 

Instead of using a notebook, you could choose to create a file on your computer with some of the tab headings shared above, however I like using a notebook because I can quickly pick it up, write down my thoughts, and move on. I can also take the notebook with me wherever I go (it fits inside my purse).

What if a thought for a blog post comes to my mind while I am out and about? This is when my Olympus VN-7100 Digital Voice Recordercomes in handy. I carry my recorder in my purse. Not only do I use it for recording blog topic ideas, but I also use it to dictate my blog posts. (This post is transcribed from one of my dictations.) Some of you may have a recorder as an app on your phone.

Making the process of blogging as simple as possible is important to me. This is why I created my Blogging Notebook.


I hope these tips help you in your blogging world!

  7. I sometimes wonder if I just don't think about blogging how/as much as other people do. I never got into organizers period

  8. I should incorporate using tabs when jotting down thoughts about blogging in a notebook. I am usually chicken-scratching my thoughts on a yellow notepad. Then I rip the sheets out and put them in a folder for blogging...not as organized as you.

  9. Great tips. I am still trying to figure out what type of system I like...

  10. What a wonderful idea! I do mine in a planner with notes and stuff but it's heavy to put in my bag. :) so I have a notebook on my desk like this one.

  11. I also keep a notebook but it is definitely not as organized as yours! Buying tabs would be a good idea, however it would be better to wait a bit when I start a new notebook as many pages have become "scribble" pages from my kiddos!

  15. Great ideas! I have a crazy excel spreadsheet that gets overwhelming. At times, I just want a pen and a notebook!

  16. Is there a special on notebooks? I'd love to get a few more as I've been seeing these reminders lately... Great idea.

  17. I do have lots of note books I use for blogging but I think I need to add it just to one blogging notebook. I really love the idea of the sound recorder for things I might try it and do what you said x

  18. I'm definitely going to try out that speak to text idea!
