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

It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

    • AD | Gifted 💫 Happy Saturday! I’m going to be spending my weekend doing some housework, making my garden look pretty and trying to find ways to convince my boyfriend to take some new outfit shots for me. If there is one thing he hates, it’s being behind the camera even though he’s actually really good at it. For those of you that manage this on a regular basis, please please share your tips (I already offered a meal out, so that’s out of the question) 😂🤞🏻

    • AD | Discounted 💫 I am FINALLY getting around to writing some of my Trek America content and I’m getting super emotional reliving all of the amazing things that we did! As much as I love my home comforts, my dream would be to spend a couple of months getting Greyhound buses between as many States as I possibly can! With 9 already ticked off my list, I still have some exploring to do.... 🗺🇺🇸❤️
•

So, who is coming with me? 😏🙌🏻

    • AD | Gifted 💫 It’s been a long time since I posted a carousel post on Instagram but I felt like the Kennedy Space Center definitely deserved it. I mean, just look at all of those incredible rockets 🚀
•
•
Do you ever have those places where you’ve wanted to visit for as long as you can remember and then they exceed your expectations, even though you didn’t think it was possible? That was the KSC for me. It’s been just over a month since I visited and I still can’t stop thinking about how incredible the different exhibitions were. From learning about incredible American astronauts and driving around launch pads to seeing immersive replicas of both failed and successful launches, it really was an experience I’ll remember. I 100% left feeling like I could achieve anything ✨🛰

    • AD | Gifted 💫 For years I have been looking lustfully at all of the cute play suits in stores thinking that I’d never be able to wear one. Not only would they not suit me but oh my gosh, can you imagine the chub rub?! I’d written them off and decided that I’d stick to jumpsuits instead 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
.
I don’t know why, but when I found out I was going to Garorock Festival I decided that if I was going to wear a playsuit, now would be the perfect opportunity. It was going to be 41 degrees and if anything, I could pass it off as festival fashion if it didn’t look right. I ordered two, one from @missguided and one from Boohoo 🙌🏻
.
.
As you can see it DOES suit me (I think) and the chub rub? NON-EXISTENT. I’m definitely a playsuit convert and now wondering what other clothes I have written off without even giving them a chance! Co-ords? Dungarees? Bodycon Dresses? What should I try next?! 😏👇🏻

    • AD | Gifted 🌈 Do you ever find a dress that as soon as you put it on, it’s all you want to wear for the rest of the summer?! 🙊
•
•
This candy coloured sundress from @yoursclothinguk is definitely THE dress of the summer for me, especially as it’s the coolest linen material ever. It’s been so so comfortable on days where it’s hit 30 degrees (or 41, like it did in France) ☀️☀️🙌🏻🙌🏻
•
•
P.s. please ignore the sun burn, apparently factor 50 every half an hour was STILL not enough for my ginger skin 😭🤦🏼‍♀️ #yoursclothing #yoursclothinguk #psbloggers #plussizebloggers #plussizeblog #plussizeootd #stylehasnosize #plussizefashion
    • AD | Gifted 💫 I’m definitely still recovering from the weekend but it was so so worth it as I go to go to my first ever festival. The four-day Garorock festival in Marmande consisted of lots of beer and Aperol, an endless supply of glitter, incredible music and non-stop dancing. ☀️🎶
•
•
Highlights include reliving my childhood by seeing @sum41, dancing to @djsnake on day 3, discovering the amazing @christineandthequeens, listening to @twodoorcinemaclub and realising I know way more songs than I thought and the INCREDIBLE headline that was @macklemore. I’ve still got no voice because I sang and screamed so much 😂🙊
•
•
As far as festivals go, Garorock was a great first choice. It was INCREDIBLY clean (look at the lack of rubbish in my photo) and it was all pretty contained and easy to get to. Not only that, but the crowd were amazing. I’m a little worried I may have been spoilt and I’ll have a bit of a shock at my next festival, but there’s only one way to find out, right? 😂🙌🏻

    • I’ve had a little bit of an Instagram break the last five days as I’ve been living my best life in France at my FIRST EVER festival! 🙌🏻🎉
•
•
Although I would have loved to get the full festival experience by camping, the heat was hitting the 40’s most days. Luckily we had our very own Gite to stay in, fully equipped with a pool and all the wine I could drink. Clearly, I took full advantage of that🥂🍾
•
•
The festival wasn’t my only first this weekend, as this is also the first time I’ve ever worn a bikini! Despite the fact I come across as confident on Instagram, I still get self-conscious when I’m putting myself out there. I was DEFINITELY not feeling it at first, but after a bit of encouragement from @danniellelily and @absolutelylucy I felt so much better. I feel as though I’d built wearing a bikini up to be this massively scary thing for me when really, it’s not *so* bad. Here’s to way more bikinis in my life 🙌🏻
•

    • AD | Gifted ❤️ Did you know when it comes to the collaborations that I do, I pitch 90% of the work I have? Whether it’s pitching a product to feature, a press trip to go on or a paid post for my blog - I’m a huge fan of going out and finding my own opportunities. Whilst I know a lot of people are scared of the thought of pitching, it’s one of the main reasons l was able to leave my job and go full-time. It’s also taken me to places like Croatia, Belgium, Lanzarote and France. I’ve worked with INCREDIBLE brands, and I want everyone else to be able to do the same too 🙌🏻
.
.
If you saw my stories a couple of weeks ago, you will have seen that I launched the #bepitchperfect eBook - the ultimate guide to pitching products, payments and press trip. The guide goes into detail about all of the preparation you need to do before a pitch, ways to overcome your fears, a five-step strategy that works for me almost every time and how to stay on top of all the people you’re pitching. I also tell you how to personalise each pitch depending on what you’re pitching. It really is that detailed! 🙊💫
.
.
At just £10, it’s honestly an absolute bargain for those looking to take their blog to the next level. It’s been launched less than a month so far and I’ve already had people message to tell me some of the amazing collaborations they’ve secured thanks to my guide! 🎉
.
.
I’m so sorry that this post may have come across a little salesy, but as you can tell I’m incredibly passionate about pitching and how it can help your blog grow. If you’re interested in purchasing the eBook, there’s a link to buy in my profile bio. If you think you know someone who may be interested, please feel free to tag them below! 🥰🥰

    • AD | Discounted 💫 As soon as I booked my Trek America I started planning all of the places I wanted to visit in each location, including the #whatliftsyou mural in the Gulch, Nashville. Nashville has TONNES of murals dotted around the city, but this particular one designed by @kelseymontagueart is very very popular. In short, Kelsey has designed all of the #whatliftsyou murals to encourage people to talk about what inspires them. Of course, I couldn’t miss out on an opportunity to do the same...
.
.
✨ Traveling to new places and experiencing incredible new adventures inspires me to create new content, as well as to face my fears.
✨ My friends and family inspire me on a daily basis - whether it’s to do the best I can or to appreciate what I have. Seeing them do incredible things makes me want to do incredible things too.
✨ My boyfriend inspires me to achieve everything I’ve ever wanted to, as he’s always cheering me on and telling me I can do anything if I work hard enough.
✨ YOU! Each and everyone one of you inspire me to do the best I can when it comes to Plus Size Travel Too and travel marketing.
.

What inspires you? 👇🏻

    • Hi! It’s me! We’ve had quite a few new followers over here so I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me, the creator of the @plussizetraveltoo movement! 🙊🙌🏻
•
My name is Kirsty Leanne (@kirstyleanneuk) and I’m a plus size travel blogger from the UK! I have loved travelling for as long as I can remember and have been blogging about travel for just over two years (and specifically plus size travel for officially 6 months). I like cats, peanut butter and programmes about serial killers. 
As I started to become more confident with posting photos of myself of my social media channels, it became more and more obvious that I didn’t have a place in the travel industry. Nobody wanted to feature a fat girl on their platforms or in their press trips. As time went on and it started to get to me more and more, the idea for Plus Size Travel Too started. Not only is this a community for plus size travellers to get advice from people just like them, but it’s a way to show brands that plus size people do actually travel too. In the long run, I want PSTT to help brands see that they should be showing plus size travellers in their marketing materials, as well as advising them on how they can make adjustments that can make travel a lot more comfortable for plus size people. 
I want to inspire plus size travellers, just like me, to travel and have the best adventures they can. Often people let the fact they’re plus size they can’t travel and hopefully, Plus Size Travel Too will help show people that that’s just not true. 
I can’t do it alone, so I am thankful for each and every one of you helping me along the way ❤️💫
