After my post on Monday, I was surprised at how many of you thought it was pretty genius to draft in Word. I was even more surprised to hear how many of you are interested in long term goals for your blog, but don’t know where to start. I get it. It can feel SUPER overwhelming to think that far into the future.

You’ll wander along the open road and jump at every opportunity that seems fun and exciting. Instead of staying focused on where you want to get, you’ll take a lot of wrong turns while you’re trying to find the right way.
Without a doubt the best $15.00 I’ve ever invested in myself and this blog is the How They Blog Blog Planning Kit by Kat Lee.
Using the Blog Planning Kit has helped me develop a complete plan for A Cookie Before Dinner. It is a self guided printable workbook that has helped me figure out everything from what my 5 year goals for A Cookie Before Dinner, who my target reader is and what kind of content she’s looking for, to what sets me apart from others in my niche.
There are daily and weekly task sheets, a prompt that will help you figure out just how much time you REALLY have to dedicate to blogging, and pages to help you nail tasks for long term projects.
If you are someone who is serious about becoming a focused and intentional blogger, someone who wants less fuss and more freedom in your writing, this is a product you need. It has changed my entire outlook on blogging. It has taken me from a someone who felt like she was drifting along without a goal to someone who knows what is coming next.

The kit is 48 pages long. You can print it out or work with it right on your completer, it is a fully editable document. I printed mine out, got some colored pens, and took myself out on a coffee date. It was so much fun to sit and dream about this space.
