6 2019 Planners That Are PERFECT For Bloggers | Blogging Tips

December 5, 2018

With the New Year just around the corner, I can’t be the only one thinking that I desperately need a planner for 2019, right? 

I love how organised the new year makes me and feel and there is no better feeling than starting a new planner with all your exciting plans – and not so exciting duties and appointments. But with so many different planners out there, where do you even begin when looking for your perfect match?

There are regular 2019 diaries, planners aimed at setting goals, complete life organisers…. the list goes on. Knowing exactly what you need can be difficult if you don’t know what the best options are.

With that in mind, I have done as much research as I can to try and find 6 of the best 2019 planners for bloggers in the UK. 

Amelia Lane Paper 2019 Desktop Daily Life Designer

Set-up: The gorgeous Amelia Lane Desktop Daily Life Designer is a handy day to a page planner. Each day features an hourly schedule, a to-do list, a notes section and space to fill in your daily meals and exercise. The planner is dated from January 1st to the end of December 2019.

Design: This planner is one of the most gorgeous things I have ever seen and it’s absolutely massive, just what I like! It’s a hardback cover with twenty nineteen embossed in gold on the front, and Amelia Lane Paper on the back. Whilst the outside design is absolutely stunning  (there are four different ones to choose from), the inside has quite a simple, easy to use design. There are cute quotes dotted throughout the planner, with a monthly planner spread at the start of each month.

Features: Monthly Expense and Budget Tracker, 12 Goal Action Worksheets, Vision Board, 2019 and 2020 Yearly Planners, Bucketlist, Passwords and Login Lists, Two Sheets of Stickers, Gift Buying List, Books To Read List, Notes Pages and a page for your Ideas.

Perfect for: The Amelia Lane Planner is perfect for those that like to add their own little flair to their planner. WIth lots of space to add your own doodles, colours and designs it’s super customisable to your own taste. The day to a page set up makes it ideal for people who like to plan their days hour by hour, giving you a little bit more control over what you do when.

The Imperfect Life Planner

Set-up: The Imperfect Life Planner is designed to get you to focus on the fact that not everything in life is perfect. It gives you a chance to look at your previous year and what you loved about it, at the same time setting goals for the year ahead. It has a day to a page set-up with an hourly schedule, a to-do list, space to write down something that has made you happy that day and a spot to write down a mistake you made. It also has space at the bottom for you to write any notes you need to.

Design: This planner is quite a chunky hardback, but as it’s around A5 size it’s still manageable if you want to throw it into your bag. The cover design reflects the imperfections of life with funky ‘pen scribbles’ and 2019 embossed in gold in the centre. The design of the inside reflects this with lots of images and quotes for you to colour in, scribbles throughout the planner and the coolest handwritten font. There is also a 7 step guide to making your 2019 game changing at the start of the planner.

Features: A Quarterly Masterplan For You To Work Out Your Goals, Weekly Check-Ins To Help You Refocus, A Monthly Mistake Log To Help You Reflect, Real Life Gold Star Stickers, A Yearly Planner, Space To Plot Your 2019 Plan, A Reflection On Your 2018 and A Reflection On 2019 At The End Of The Planner.

Perfect for: This is the perfect planner for people who want to learn to love the mistakes they make. If you’re looking to have an incredible 2019 with less stress and more productivity, this is probably the planner for you. Whilst it teaches you to be organised, it also teaches you to forgive yourself. This is the planner I used all of 2018 and I loved it.

MiGoals Goal Digger Planner

Set-up: If you want a planner that is focussed on setting goals and the steps to achieving them, then the MiGoals Goal Digger Planner is perfect for you. This planner is more geared towards your goals so it has a weekly planner, rather than a day to a page. The weekly view has space to write a few notes for each day, a list for what you’re grateful for, space to write your weekly goals, a to-do list, a habit tracker, a note section, space to write your top 3 wins and a little chart to rate your week. As far as a weekly spread goes, it’s pretty jam-packed.

Design: I love the design of this planner as it is modern and sleek. The planner itself is a little bit thicker than a softback book and completely grey with ‘Goal Digger Planner 2019’ embossed on the front. The inside is very similar with lots of lines to break things up, a gorgeous easy to read font used throughout and a sleek design that is so so pleasing to look at. It’s not designed to be pretty, but effective instead.

Features: Sections For Purpose and Vision Planning, 7 Short Term Goal Worksheets, 3 Long Term Goal Worksheets, Monthly Review Sections To Check Your Progress, Monthly View Pages To See Your Priorities At A Glance, A Section For Your Budgets and Note Pages.

Perfect for: Whilst this planner isn’t ideal if you want to plan out your day hour by hour, it’s absolutely perfect for those who want to plan their yearly goals in great detail. Consider it more like a workbook to ensure you have achieved everything you want to by the end of the year.

Inkwell Press Disc Planner

Set-up: The Inkwell Disc Planner Is slightly different to other planners as it is designed to be entirely customisable. The whole planner comes in parts and you build it yourself using the disc system. You can choose from Daily Planner Inserts, Weekly Planner Inserts, Goal Planning Inserts and Meal Planner Inserts. You can mix and match and use a combination of each, providing they don’t exceed the total amount the discs hold. Once you have picked your cover, your discs your inserts and any extras, you’re ready to build your own planner.

For transparency, I went with Goal Planning Inserts, but I also have the Daily Planner Inserts which can be inserted month by month or six months at a time. Both inserts will not fit in the planner at a time, so I am going to focus mainly on the Goal Planning Inserts as I feel they’re the best for bloggers. These inserts begin with space to reflect and set goals for the year ahead, then move into planning for the individual month. There is no space to plan your year day by day or week by week. 

Design: Depending on what cover you use, the Inkwell Press Disc Planner can look however you like. There are several different designs, however, I went with the classic smoke design for a sleek look. The inserts that you place inside are beautifully designed with pastel colours throughout. In fact, I have to say the design on the Inkwell Planners are one of the best I have seen as they are very visual planners that encourage you to be creative.

Features: The Goal Setting Inserts have 10 Goal Setting and Action Road Map Pages, Projection and Reflection Deep Dive Sheets, Monthly Check-Ins, Goal Adjustments and Your Planning Matrix.

The Weekly Planner Classic Inserts have 52 Pages of Vertical Planning, Monthly and Weekly Top Priority Planning Sections, Two Page Monthly Spreads, Yearly And Monthly Goal Tracking, Gridded and Dot Paper, Project Tracker, Travel Planner, Budget Planning and more.

Perfect for: Depending on which inserts you use, I feel like the Inkwell Disc Planner is perfect for absolutely anyone. You could build it to be exactly what you need, whether that’s goal setting ora day to day planner – it’s completely up to you.

Hello Day 2019 Planner

Set-up: The gorgeous Hello Day planner is a day to a page planner that’s absolutely perfect for bloggers. The daily spread covers an AM, PM and EVE planner, a to-do list, a note section, a priority list, space to write down and important birthdays, a water tracker and space to write down your accomplishments. Each page also includes a motivational quote and space to write down something you’re good at, something you’re grateful for or something you have achieved depending on the day.

Design: There are a number of different designs to choose from, each one is as beautiful as the next. The inside of each is the same, with a simple design that is incredibly easy to use. It’s a really clear design that leaves lots of room for customisation, but also clearly marks out what space needs to be used for what. It also uses acute ‘Hello’ theme throughout, for example, each day says ‘Hello Tuesday 1st January, Hello Wednesday 2nd January, Hello February’ etc.

Features: 4 Hand Lettered Artwork Pages, Inspirational Quotes Throughout, A Focus On Affirmations, Weekly Pages at the Beginning Of Each Week, Monthly Goal Planning and Monthly Notes at the Start of Each Month, Monthly Calendar for Each Month, 2019 and 2020 Yearly Views, Budget Planner, Yearly Goal Setting and Blank Pages to Use as You Wish.

Perfect for: This planner is perfect for people who want to be able to set goals and plan their year in one planner. With monthly check-ins on goals and a day to a page spread, it’s a combination of all of the planners in the blog post – making it a fabulous and comprehensive planner for a blogger looking to hit their 2019 goals.

The Trigg Life Mapper

Set-up: The Trigg Life Mapper (an award-winning planner) is a daily planner with a difference. This planner focuses on reflection and mindfulness to help you achieve goals that have been set in all areas of your life. It has goal setting pages to work through at the start of the year and at the beginning of each week, followed by a day to a page set up (barring Saturday and Sunday). The daily pages have space for appointments and a daily grid that marks out your most urgent tasks in comparison to your non-urgent tasks. It also includes quotes or ‘Trigg Points’ to focus on that day.

Design: I love the cover of the Trigg Life Mapper as it is a teal cover, with a compass style design embossed on the front. It’s a simple design, but incredibly Instagramable. Inside is colourful, with colour coding used for different thoughts and emotions. Colour coding is also used to separate each month. The pages within the Trigg Life Mapper are a simple design that is easy to use, with boxes and lists to symbolise what needs to be written where.

Features: An Annual Forecast to Outline Your Key Goals, A Personal Manifesto, Weekly Planners To Visualise Your Goals, A Weekly Gratitude Section, A Weekly Reflection, Daily Inspirational Quotes, Weekly Call To Actions, A Six Month Review To Check In On Your Goals a Final Annual Review.

Perfect for: If you’re looking to restore balance in your work life, relationships and your mind then this is the perfect planner for you. It doesn’t focus so much on the day to day tasks you have to do, rather the steps you need to take to make your life a much happier one.

So, which one will you be buying?

    Oh wow, so many pretty planners to choose from. I love them all, and was sooo torn between The Imperfect Life Planner and The Trigg Life Mapper but I’ve gone with The Imperfect Life Planner 😀

  • Kim December 12, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    I need all of these diaries!! I’ve put one on my Christmas list as I want to focus more on my blog next year and a planner will definitely keep me organised! x

  • I'M KIRSTY LEANNE

    My mission is simple. I want to help change the way travel looks, showing both brands and society that plus size people really do travel too. In a community where plus size travellers are made to feel unwelcome, I want to inspire and advise people like me on how they can make the most out of their own incredible travel experiences.Join me as I share my own personal experiences, my best tips and tricks and all of the challenges I face along the way. It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

    Together, we can change the way that travel looks today

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    • Just some of the things people (including me) can feel anxious about as a plus size traveller. It can be hard, but thankfully there’s a great community of people here on Instagram who can help ❤️✈️🌎 #plussizetravel #plussizetraveltoo #plussize #travel #fatgirlstraveling #fatgirlstravelling #fatgirlstraveltoo #curvygirltravels #travel #travelblogger #travelblogger #anxiety #anxieties #travelanxiety #overwhelmed #takeuspace #takingupspace #community #travelcommunity #reels #instagramreels #reelsinstagram
    • AD  For a long time, I was scared to admit that I was on my self-love journey as I felt like it meant that I had to constantly be positive about how I feel about my body. I knew that the way in which I felt about myself was definitely changing in a positive way, but I didn’t want to open up and say that I was on this journey because I was so scared that I couldn’t be the positive role-model that people needed 🥺

It took some time, but I finally realised that self-love means something completely different to each and every person that has started the incredible journey of learning to love their body more. For some, self-love is wearing a bikini in public for the first time ever. For others, it’s saying no to something you really don’t want to do and taking time to focus on YOU instead 👙

To believe that self-love was a linear concept held me back from so much so when @welovedates asked me to share what it means to me, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to show you that there’s so much more to self-love than building your confidence in yourself ❤️👏🏻

I’ve shared five ways in which my life has changed as a result of my self love journey over on my blog so if you fancy reading, head over to the link in my bio 👩🏼‍💻✍🏻

If you’re on your self love journey, how has your life changed? 👇🏻❤️ #welovereal
    • In another world, today would have been the first day of the Plus Size Travel Too x Bali trip ✈️🌎
•
•
For those of you that are new here, this time last year I announced my first international group trip created with plus size travellers in mind. For obvious reasons, however, I had to cancel it earlier this year. It felt as though it was my biggest career achievement to date and honestly, I am gutted that it hasn’t been able to go ahead as planned 🥺😢

Being passionate about an industry that is now so uncertain isn’t easy right now, but I’m (mostly) hopeful that things will rebuild and I promise they when it’s safe, I’m going to do all that I can to make Plus Size Travel Too trips a reality again ❤️👏🏻 #plussizetraveltoo
    • ad pr • them: “gross, she probably can’t even touch her toes 🤮”

Me: “......hold my drink 😏👏🏻”

Just your friendly reminder that you shouldn’t assume someone can’t do something just because they’re bigger than you AND if for any reason they can’t do the same things as you, they’re not any less worthy of your respect ✌🏻
    • ad pr • a cat print dress certainly makes for the purrrfect Halloween outfit 🕸🕷

When it comes to shooting new content I’ve been feeling really uninspired lately and honestly, I think it’s because I usually find my inspiration in travel and discovering new places ❤️✈️

Summer has been and gone and I think I must have only taken a handful of photos. I felt like I was putting pressure on myself to create when I didn’t feel like it, so even when I did try to self shoot the photos didn’t come out how I wanted 🤷🏼‍♀️

Thankfully, Autumn is well and truly here and I’m feeling really really motivated to start taking photos again. It’s my favourite season for both the colours and the fashion, so I feel like it’s a time of the year where my ‘at home’ content always starts to improve a little 🍂

As I’m not going to be travelling anywhere for a while, I feel like this is going to be the year to embrace my Autumn content even more (starting with this gorgeous @joanieclothing dress) ❤️📸 

I hope you’re all as excited as I am for my content over the next few weeks 😂🎃👀 #joaniegirls
    • I know things have been a little quiet around here the past few weeks but it’s for good reason, I promise! 🥺❤️

So, as I haven’t mentioned it here yet, last week I started working for a new job on a part-time basis! 👏🏻 I’ve been doing lots of training and getting used to my new schedule so unfortunately, Instagram fell behind a little bit. I feel like I haven’t had the time to develop content ideas or create new Reels for a couple of weeks now and when I finally remember to post, it’s gone 10pm and far too late to consider posting 😂

I’m finally getting the hang of things again, so consider this post an accountability post to say that I’ll be back to posting properly ASAP 🥺✌🏻
    • I don’t have a lot to say today so I thought I’d let you all know I really miss Disney California Adventure, even if their churros were extremely overpriced and small 🎡🎠
•
•
Side note: next time I go to a Disney park, will someone please remind me to wear something practical? I looked cute but oh my god, it was so WARM 🥵 #plussizetraveltoo
    • “PLUS SIZE GIRLS POSING IN BIKINIS ARE PROMOTING OBESITY. THIS IS NOT OKAY”❌
•
•
So, earlier this week I shared a video of myself in a bikini. It was the first time I’ve ever worn a bikini to the beach and honestly, I was super proud of myself for taking a big step personally on my journey 👙
•
•
Over the course of the last few days I have a lot of positive and supportive comments from people but of course, when a video on Instagram gets a lot of views, it starts to attract those that think those in a larger body than them shouldn’t be allowed to live their best lives on social media.
•
•
They’re the people who, no matter what I’m doing, tell me I’m promoting obesity by sharing videos and images of my body online 🤷🏼‍♀️📸
•
•
These comments don’t phase me anymore, so....
•
•
JUST FOR A LAUGH, I DECIDED TO DESIGN THE PROMOTING OBESITY MAGAZINE COVER, JUST TO SHOW HOW RIDICULOUS IT ACTUALLY SOUNDS WHEN PEOPLE SAY THIS 😂👏🏻
•
•
By posting videos of myself travelling and enjoying myself, I’m not saying HEY EVERYONE  YOU SHOULD ALL GAIN WEIGHT AND I WON’T BE HAPPY UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD IS FAT LIKE ME. I obviously recognise that there can be health complications for some people, but size does not indicate your health and health does not indicate your worth. 
•
•
Every single person on this planet deserves love and respect and I am going to continue to fight for that every. single. day. Just because someone lives in a body that is bigger than yours, it doesn’t mean that can’t live the same life that you do publicly for fear that people are going to come for them online.
•
•
When people say we’re promoting obesity what they really mean is we’re promoting loving yourself at any size. We’re promoting happiness. Following your dreams. Travelling the world. Finding confidence. We’re promoting the life that everyone deserves to live.
•
•
Honestly, I didn’t realise a video of a happy fat girl in a bikini was going to make people so mad 🤷🏼‍♀️👙 #plussizetraveltoo
    • I’ve been quiet the last few days but I’m back and feeling super refreshed after spending a night glamping, even if it was just thirty minutes from my front door ❤️🥺
•
•
2020 really has been a whirlwind but I am so so thankful for all of these small, happy moments ✨#plussizetraveltoo

“LACMA URBAN LIGHTS: Created by Chris Burden, the Urban Lights have been outside of the Los Angeles County Museum Of Art for almost 12 years. There are a total of 202 1920's lamps and 309 LED bulbs that make up the incredible structure. We visited during the day but as the sun starts to go down, no matter what time that is, the lights will turn on. When the sun comes back up again the next morning, they turn off thanks to an astronomical timer. Since their installation in 2008, they actually haven't missed a single night”

“
At the end of the day, when we were talking about how great of a time we’d had, planning more days like this, I suddenly felt kind of nostalgic for all the days I’d missed. All the times like that one, when all everyone wanted to do was have fun, but I got too in my head about it to let myself enjoy.”

    • Ever wondered what it’s like to visit a Moroccan Hammam while plus size? ✨
•
•
“As a plus size woman, I did not feel embarrassed as the hammam I visited had women of all shapes and sizes. No one judged or batted an eye. I was the only woman with dark skin there, however, but still no one seemed to care and were too busy enjoying their spa experience. It was just a normal day for the women who lived there as this was something integral in their culture. I quickly realized that my fears and insecurities stemmed from being judged in America, but that Moroccans were much more accepting and unbothered. I just had a body, it was nothing to gawk at or laugh at, as I had imagined. It was serene to simply be allowed to exist without feeling ostracized. It was also a confidence boost to walk around practically naked while indulging in spa treatments.”

    • EXCITING LAUNCH TIME 🌍✈️❤️
•
•
So for the past few months I have been mentioning a ‘secret project’ and after lots of hard work, the launch day has finally come. Although I know was supposed to launch last week, I had a number of setbacks and I wanted to ensure everything was perfect before I put it out into the world 🥺
•
•
SO, WHAT AM I LAUNCHING?
•
•
Today is the launch day for the Plus Size Travel Too website, a safe plus for plus size travellers to find inspiration and advice when it comes to their travels ✈️
•
•
Although I regularly post plus size travel content on my own website and blog, I wanted to create a space that was dedicated specifically to plus size travel, rather than it being mixed in with all of the other topics I cover. It’s a place for community, as plus size travellers are also encouraged to submit their own advice and experiences too 🥰
•
•
To celebrate the launch day, there are already some INCREDIBLE posts live. These posts have been submitted by @cardifforniagurl @thetravelcurve @thecrownwings @globalmidwife @gemmaslittleworld @livingwonderfilled @rhianwestbury and @leabellablogs ❤️
•
•
I’d love it if you head over to www.plussizetravel.com (the link is in my bio) to have a read of their awesome work and if you can, spread the word about the launch. Wether you’re plus size or not, you never know who may benefit from something they may read ✨ #plussizetraveltoo
    • 🌈 HAPPY PRIDE 🌈 although celebrations may be a little different this year due to COVID-19, we want to know how you’re celebrating in the comments! 👇🏻
•
•
Here at Plus Size Travel Too, I’m celebrating by donating to Mermaids - a charity that supports trans children and their families!
