Whether your blog is your hobby, full time job, or your passion project, I think we can all agree that staying organized is half the battle. In a post written last year, I shared how I use OneNote (which is basically like an EverNote/online binder system) and today I want to share how I specifically use it for my blog!
All bloggers have probably heard this advice; always keep a notebook on you to jot down blog ideas. Well, sometimes I don’t want to carry a notebook with me everywhere I go! Having an option for my phone to sync with my computer is perfect for even drafting posts when I’m on the subway, etc. Whenever I get an idea for a blog post, I put it in my OneNote, and edit it when I can! (The app syncs with all devices, too!)
Although right now I’m taking a break from offering sponsors on my blog, OneNote is imperative for me keeping my blog life organized! I keep a list of canned emails that I send to all sponsors welcoming them, as well as the links to all of the Google docs that I send my sponsors asking them to fill out.
I also am a big fan of sponsoring other bloggers, and oftentimes they will will send me a promo code to use. This is where I organize them so I can sponsor them again!

Every once in a while I like to do a blogging giveaway and share a little fun with my readers. I keep a list of all of my links (link bloglovin’, facebook, etc), the giveaways that I’m participating in, etc.
We all have one, right? All the things we’d like to get done someday, whether it’s changing a post image or making a newsletter. I like to keep mine handy so whenever I have the time (or chance!) and want to work on something for my blog, I have a tangible list to go off of.
The uses of OneNote are really endless for blogging purposes: you can keep track of collaboration ideas, your finances, linkups, etc.
Do you use a digital notebook service? If so, how do you use it?
