Welcome to week three of ‘Organise Your Blog‘. If you’re returning to this series then hola! If you’ve just discovered this weekly series then welcome and don’t forget to go back and grab your free monthly editorial printable and your monthly social media stats worksheet.
If you are new then here’s a bit of background:
This is a new weekly series where you I share with you printables and worksheets that will help you to ‘Organise Your Blog‘. They are all free (I know I’m good to you!) and whether you’re a hobby blogger or a pro, they will help to make blogging a bit less overwhelming.
First off, if you haven’t already, don’t forget to subscribe in the sidebar. There will be lots of useful printables to come and you don’t want to miss out!
I’ve actually been really excited to share this weeks printable. It’s one that I use everyday and has been a huge help to my blogging life. If you link up to a lot of linky’s then you will love this.
Out of all the printables I share, this is the only one that you’ll have to change to suit yourself (so it’s actually more of a worksheet). But it’s really not difficult to use. The purpose of the worksheet is to make linking up to linky’s a lot quicker and easier.
It’s hard enough trying to remember what day it is let alone trying remember what linky’s are on, whose running them and what their twitter handle is.
Before I had this worksheet I’d frequently find myself in someplace like the shower and suddenly remember I’ve forgotten to add a badge to a linked post from three days ago. Cue cold sweat and mad panic to get online so the host doesn’t think I’m a link and run!
Don’t worry, I’ll show you an example of how the worksheet below so it’s not too overwhelming.
Here’s an example of what the worksheet will look like. You can download an editable version at the bottom of the page:
I actually use several pages of this sheet as sometimes I link up to at least two linky’s a day. Badge codes aren’t the smallest thing in the world so each cell will expand with the text.
Here’s an example of how I use this sheet (I actually join up to more linky’s than shown but it gives you a good example of how you can tailor it to suit you):
You can change around everything on this sheet; from where the days of the week are, to the size and shape of the cell.
For example, you may link up to four linky’s on a Monday but one on a Tuesday. Therefore the Tuesday text can be moved down to wherever you need it.
If you run out of space, simply duplicate the copy and have several separate documents. So when it comes to linking up to your favourite linky’s, all you’ll need is this sheet!

If you need a different version then mention in the comments below and I’ll get in touch.
If you can never remember when your favourite linky’s are, then check out Aby over at You Baby Me Mummy’s Linky List. It tells you when all the linky’s are and is updated monthly!
Also if you’re unsure of what a linky is and you’ve read through this whole post and are completely baffled, then you can learn more about them here on Tots100.
Oh and don’t forget to join in with my linky on a Wednesday called ‘Whatever The Weather’. It’s all about sharing your outdoor family fun! (Cue a bit of self-promotion!)
You can look forward to a printable that will help you to organise all of your usernames and passwords.
I don’t know about you but I’ve signed up to countless amounts of sites with my blog. From social media platforms, to parenting blogger leaderboards, to affiliate sites, the list goes on!
If, like me, you’ve ever accidentally emptied your cache and erased all previous passwords and login details, you’ll know how much of a nightmare it is when you have to reset them all because you can’t remember what any of them are!
I hope to see you again next week!
