Free For All Friday - No 577 by Steve


We are approaching the last month of the year. Yesterday, I prepared the 'blog calendar' for 2020. It is a simple Month on One page diary insert, but with some extra information pre-printed on to it.

It looks like a complicated code, but in reality it is just the posts that you see on a regular basis each week.

Over the years I've found it much easier to visualise the dates on when to schedule posts if I view them in the format rather than just the date on the blog editor. It also helps with post numbering too!

What do you pre-plan for the year ahead?

As always on a Friday you are of course free to discuss anything related to ring bound organisers.

Have a great weekend.
