BONUS #1: Complete Printing Guide
To help you make the most of your 2018 Blogging Planner, I’ve put together a Printing Guide that not only includes detailed instructions on how to print the planner, but also how many of which page to print, depending on your needs.
BONUS #2: Guest Post Planner
One of the best techniques a blogger can use for expanding his or her audience is to publish great guest posts on other people’s blogs. The Guest Post Planner will help you document and track the major blogs and publications that you identify for potential publishing.
"As a marketing tactic, blogging is underrated. Done well, a blog provides another outlet for your content marketing that’s search-friendly while supporting your content distribution. To maximize results, you need a blogging plan and calendar to keep your content creation on track and visible."
- Heidi Cohen
BONUS #3: Facebook Group Promotion Schedule
Facebook Groups are terrific places to connect with other people who share mutual interests, which means they’re often filled with likely readers of your latest blog posts. However, each Group has their own set of rules and permissions. Pat Flynn, for instance, allows members to share their latest posts and promotions only on Fridays as a comment on his invitation post. The Promotion Schedule will help you track which Groups you can post in, when.
