Everything is better when it's personalised so when Toad Diaries kindly let me have my own personalised diary * I was pretty excited! I collected it at the #BloggersFestival when I said my hellos. I was so keen to start using it that I even pretty much disowned my year old blogging notebook for it! It couldn't be helped...
Toad Diaries is a company I had briefly heard of before, but it wasn't until the email about the brand being at the Bloggers Festival came along that I'd looked into them. After seeing all the different ways to personalise your own diary, I was really excited to be getting my own one! I decided to go for this cute blue floral print, mainly because it was the one I was most drawn to. I was going to go for a more sleek look with a plain colour but I wanted something a little more fun. I personalised it with my blog name and subtitled it my 'Blog Diary & Planner'. I also didn't forget to make sure I put my social media links and blog on the back for a little extra personal touch.
I was really impressed with the final result. I went with a day a page look starting from September 2015 taking me through to August 2016. I didn't realise how thick it would be either! But it made sense to have a day a page so that I could write what I would be blogging about on what day, or if I had an event to go to I could note it down too. Basically anything remotely related to blogging over the next year will go in here.
So far I've really enjoyed using my blog planner. I'm yet to work further ahead than a week on my blog planning, but using my new diary has got me just a little more organised and if I haven't published the planned post for the day, I do end up feeling guilty! So it's a great way to keep me in check. The quality of the diary is amazing too; I'm usually sceptical to ring-bound notebooks because they usually fall apart with me but this one is super sturdy and the pages are strong too so no worries here! :)
