From finances and sponsorships to keeping track of all of your posts, categories, tags and more, there are a million and one things involved when it comes to blog organizing.
Hopefully this resource list helps you get started and on the right track! Even though it’s great to start with these habits from the get-go, it’s never too late to get your blog organized.

This is the first post in a 2-part series that dives into everything you need to get started creating an editorial calendar.
