Lucy Hall’s Social Media Planner Review by Jennifer Gilmour [Guest Post]

Hello everyone. I’m delighted to be blogging here on Emma-Louise’s blog because I am also a stationery geek. I would compare myself to Monica out of friends, I love to organise everything and if someone doesn’t put things back in the correct place they will receive a talking from me.

A little about me (other than my geeky love for stationery)

My name is Jennifer Gilmour and I am a young married mum of three children; Sophie is almost 8, Riley is 6 and my youngest Robyn is 2. They like crafts like me, my eldest loves washi tape and notebooks as much as me as well. I am an author and I love to blog.

You can find out more about what I do via my website and blog at www.jennifergilmour.com

Lucy Hall’s Social Media Planner Review

Today I wanted to review a product that has saved me worrying about my marketing plan. As an author it is important to use social media and your blog the most effective way. I have never had the time to think about how to set up a marketing plan and when I came across Lucy Hall’s Social Media Planner.

As you can see from the photo’s it has these beautiful pink flamingo’s as the cover and Lucy uses this throughout her media which helps for her brand recognition. The Planner is a 2018 Social Media Content Planning Diary and I have used it for January and already receiving results.

One of my favourite aspects is how the planner give’s you noteable days, tips for each month, challenges you to give your own objectives and your own important message for each month. Noteable days include days like; National Popcorn Day, Clean Off Your Desk Day, Compliment Day and so on.

At the end of each month you have the chance to recognise your achievements and I believe it is important to celebrate success even if it is the small steps to the big goals.

The layout of the planner is simple but yet effective, it has a classy feel to it. The colours are simple and the flamingo appears on some pages as a background throughout.

As well as the planner Lucy has a Facebook group for those who purchase the planner and it gives you a chance to ask questions, see updates from other members, network, receive training and theres competitions and giveaways which is always a winner for me.

I would highly recommend the planner to anyone who is looking to get organised with their social media, whether they are a blogger, have a business, are an author or are helping clients with marketing. At a price of £17 you have nothing to loose. I am looking forward to my marketing achievements this year.

New Pursedori Planner

Yes, this is another set up post from me. A little while ago I ordered a LyraandCo pursedori (so called because of the popper fastener), it was listed under ‘last chance’ so I don’t think they are getting made again which is a shame.

I chose a fabric that would be nice for autumn. I really liked the idea of the popper rather than elastic as I really get fed up the elastic after a while,  which is why I’ve only managed to stay in a TN for a creative journal as it is not used daily.

Initially when I bought this I had no idea what I’d use it for however it just kind of fell into place. I had gone back to using a good old small notebook for all my blog prep and I decided to pop it in the Pursedori.

I ended up getting more books for it and setting it up to use for my blog. I have a weekly and monthly diary in there and a notebook ready for when my current one is full.
I decorated the outside of the notebooks, made a wallet and filled the little pockets and I’m loving it. It’s so easy to use, light, slim and perfect to pop in my handbag when I need it too.

I can even slot my slightly too big current blog notebook inside it as well.

I also bought some cute blogging stickers from HappyCutieStudio and they are the perfect size for the small inserts.

I am wanting to keep this as simple as possible, try something without a lot of washi and decor. 
If you fancy a look at one of these or to purchase one please check the link above for LyraandCo.

Thanks for reading.

My Week

This week I have gone with the magical Harry Potter spread.

The kit stickers and Halloween countdown stickers are from UglyBugDoes and the cute blogging stickers are from ThePlumpPlanner

Love how this looks:) 

I’ve got quite a busy week ahead. I start my major declutter to prepare for Christmas, one of the downsides to moving to a small house means it constantly looks cluttered.

I also have a book signing event I’m attending which I am covering to report on for my blog, I will be meeting the author and hopefully having a brief interview. I’m really excited about this! It’s my first of 4 over the month.

I also have a lot of blog draft prep for a new series I have coming out and college work to catch up (thank god it’s half term next week).

How is your week ahead looking? 

Thanks for reading.

GTD Trigger List For My Blog Planner

image

The GTD incompletion trigger list is an absolute godsend for me as I frequently forget things when I have a toddler running amok however as I mentioned in my previous post GTD Trigger List For My A5 Planner the one in David Allen’s book doesn’t fit my life situation so I have adapted it into two seperate parts. One for my daily life and one for my blogging.

I have already shared the list for my daily planner so now I am sharing the list for my blog planner.

I haven’t typed this one up as of yet as I am waiting to see if I need to add or tweak it first as this is a relatively new list.

As you can see the list is somewhat different and more blog orientated.
I am trying to improve my blog as I progress as it’s something that I love doing. I don’t currently blog for money but more freedom. Blogging is one of the few things I have in my life that’s done for me (and my audience) rather than for my partner,  children or family.

When I first started it was just somewhere for me to write and I didn’t have a clue about domains, SEO, statistics etc however now I find myself wanting to learn more, wanting to reach more people. To share any knowledge I may have or experiences I have.

The trigger list helps my personal development with my blog so much, as it forces me to focus.

If you have any tips or triggers you feel I’ve missed or advice I always greateful.

Thank you for reading.
