BLOG LIKE A BOSS
YOUR TIME IS PRECIOUS - USE IT WISELY
Do you ever feel overwhelmed juggling all the moving pieces with your blog?
If you have ever felt out of control trying to navigate the complex business of blogging, you are not alone! Bloggers wear so many hats after all..!
There’s content creation, photography, SEO, Pinterest strategy, Instagram, Facebook algorithms, email marketing, website management, graphic design, affiliate marketing, ad management, pitching brands, managing collaborations and SO MUCH MORE to master!
And don’t even get me started on tax returns..!
So if you’ve felt overwhelmed, out of control or unorganised, then let me introduce you to your new best friend…
THE BLOG BOSS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Your blog organisational head quarters. Your ticket to easy-breezy efficient blogging.
The Blog Boss management system is way more than a blog planner. It’s a one-stop-shop management system helping you navigate the complex business of blogging with a sense of calm and clarity.
No more scrambling to find that genius idea which you scribbled down on a scrap of paper somewhere and haven’t seen for days. No more juggling messy spreadsheets, downloads and unorganised folders.
Using my favourite, free, simple-to-use management tool, Airtable, you will finally have a system which is user friendly and keeps even the most chaotic of bloggers on track.
Keep EVERYTHING in one place. From your brain waves and take home lessons to your strategy notes, content planning, Pinterest management plan and blog expenses for tax returns.
Strategise, plan, track, and take notes all in ONE place. You can even upload learning resources like ebooks or your Pinterest graphics to keep everything in one convenient location for efficient blogging.
Strategy & education
Do you collect courses but never get around to actioning them? Well that's a thing of the past. Keep all your aha moments, goal planning and new strategies in one place. Stay laser focussed on where to spend your precious time for maximum results, blog growth and income.
Planning epic content
Learn to structure blog posts which get a ton of views, newsletters your list can't wait to open, pins that get found and clicked on and plan an affiliate strategy that actually works. The planning sheets in this management system will make effective content creation a total breeze.
Stay on track with super simple tracking systems that will help you keep on top of all of your important stats. From affiliate conversion rates to email engagement and of course keeping track of those pesky expenses for a calmer tax return experience!
SO WHY AIRTABLE?
Airtable manages to be an extremely powerful organisational tool whilst retaining the simplicity of a spreadsheet. It will revolutionise the way you manage your blogging business.
Think of it like the perfect blend of Excel, Word and Google drive. You can see your plans and stats at a glance but you can pack a lot more detail in and even upload documents like article drafts or educational resources. And, it’s extremely simple to use!
You can view the information in various ways from expansive spreadsheets which showcase the bigger picture to cards with a huge array of focussed information.
You can interlink tabs so that planning cards link seamlessly with tracking spreadsheets. You can filter and sort tasks by priority or financial gain as well as add links, emails, phone numbers, dates, checklists and priority ratings…
It has the look and feel of a simple spreadsheet (albeit a little prettier,) but it’s capability goes far beyond that of a typical database like Excel or Google Sheets.
As someone who has struggled with organisation in the past, Airtable has turned my management system around, helping me stay calm, decisive, in control and most importantly, efficient. The best bit? It’s free to use

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This blog management system is suitable for all levels of bloggers. The sooner you get organised and focussed, the faster your blog will be successful.
Beginners will benefit from strategy and content planning worksheets to help them get it right without too much trial and error.
More advanced bloggers will find the email marketing planners and trackers particularly useful and may benefit from the delegation planner for working with virtual assistants.
Yep, it’s a really simple, user-friendly tool that I think you will really love using. I don’t know how I managed without it now!
But just in case, I have also created some video tutorials showing you how to use Airtable and get the most from the program. You’ll be up and running in no time at all.
Yep, once you have paid for this management system, you will not have to shell out more for your subscription – Airtable is completely free!
There is a pro version but you probably won’t need it straight away. I still use the free version myself.
That said, there are some cool features I’m tempted by like the ability to search tables and turn databases into pretty graphs. But you certainly won’t NEED these.
You can invite a virtual assistant to collaborate on your own board. It means you can set tasks, communicate updates and collaborate on the same projects when needed.
If you work with a VA then you will find the bonus tool, Delegate Like a Boss, particularly useful!
Yes there is a free app you can download!
Whilst some things are better to visualise on a desktop, I find the info cards feature super useful on an app.
Eg, I can grab a list of my Instagram hashtags, or a Pinterest description and image I saved earlier or I can make some notes when I learn something new or stumble across an idea!
If you’re not yet familiar with Airtable, I would start by using it on Desktop first to understand how everything works and links together and then the app will make a lot more sense!
This is SO much more than a blog planner. Firstly there is so much more scope covered with this system – it’s many tools in one neat organised package.
Many blog planners you will download, print, use for a few days then lose down the back of your sofa!
This is designed to be a system which makes your everyday easier, keeps you focussed and organised and won’t go missing! You can keep everything in one place creating a more streamlined management system.
The digital nature of this product means that at the click of a button you can organise everything in order of priority or money-making potential!
One of the common roadblocks a lot of my students tell me they experience is difficulty prioritising tasks. They tell me they get overwhelmed by all the moving pieces of blogging and find it hard to know what to focus on 1st.
So I set about solving this problem and came up with 3 decision making tools.
They are based on questionnaires where you rank statements 0-3 depending on if you agree or not. Each statement is focussed on what benefit that task will reward you.
The score gets automatically tallied and when added to a list of tasks, they automatically get shuffled into order of priority based on what will have the biggest impact on your business, helping you to grow and monetise your blog much faster and efficiently.
There are 3 decision tools:
- Which blog post to prioritise
- Which project to prioritise
- Which affiliate products to promote and prioritise.
Due to the digital nature of this product, I cannot offer refunds. But if you have questions about it before purchasing, feel free to reach out and ask me.
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
