Have you heard of Trello? If not, we’ve got good news for you! Lauren of The Arizona Prepster is sharing with us why you should be using Trello on your blog.
In my Five Apps Every Blogger Should Have post, I mentioned the website/app Trello and so many of my readers were interested in it. I figured I would share with y’all how amazing it is and how I use Trello! I use Trello for both my blog editorial calendar and for school, but today we’re covering how it applies to my blog.
I should explain Trello first. Trello uses lists and cards to keep you organized. You create lists and then every individual item you are working on is its own card (or in this case, each post you’re working on = its own card).
Your lists and cards live in boards, and you can have multiple boards with many lists and cards. Within your board, you can even view the calendar (if you add due dates to your cards) to help keep you on track .
Here is my editorial board:
I really love the calendar feature. It lays everything out nicely, plus you can move the cards on the calendar and it changes the due date in the card itself.
Quick note: one feature on the card is “members.” This is where you can add other users and collaborate on cards (posts). I don’t use this feature on my board, but Hope does on The Young Hopeful‘s board so we know all about our upcoming posts. This keeps us updated, as we get notified when anything having to do with our card changes.
Trello is so easy to navigate and helps keep you organized– it’s a great blogging tool!
Thanks so much, Lauren! We love staying organized!
