blog calendar.

Keeping track of blog posts is an important part of keeping up a blog.  For the past seven years, I've used the same concept when it comes to planning blog posts each month.  I keep my handy little blog calendar in my Happy Planner, so I can access it any time I need to, especially if an idea pops in my brain.
I found this calendar on the Beautifully Tarnished Blog and it's worked out great, I love it!  It's got a cute little design for the year, but nothing too over the top.  As you can see for January, I blogged 21 times out of the 23 days of the week.  I count Monday through Friday as the days because I typically do not blog on the weekends, unless it's a special day or something. So for the first month of the year, I started off pretty strong!
Each month I write out blog ideas on this calendar, which helps me when planning future posts.  What I started doing in the box at the bottom of each calendar, is writing out any reoccurring posts I have to remind myself about them and of course to check them off.  On the bottom empty lines, I write out anything to look ahead for the next month and to start thinking of anything for that month.
Here is the month of March.  Not much planned yet, a few reoccurring posts and big things like one of my favorite holidays St. Patrick's Day and the first day of Spring!
These monthly calendars are a huge help, and love having them as a separate thing in addition to my normal planner calendar.  I don't think I'll ever be able to go electronic when it comes to planning things!

How do you keep track of blog posts?  I'd love to see how others manage posts each month!
