Do you want to set up your Editorial Calendar in Trello?
Now, I mention in the video that Meera Kothand’s One Hour Content Plan inspired some of my planning. If you want to grab her book you can find a link to it in my Best Blogging Resources post, it’s the first one in the post, because it’s just that amazing.
She sometimes even has it for free on Kindle, I don’t know how, because the book should be turned into a course worth hundreds of dollars it’s so amazing.
Anyways, enough of plugging Meera (she’s my fave).

Create a Content Planning Template Checklist
You can create your own Content Checklist by created a card, and opening it up and creating a list.
Name the list your post workflow.
And then add EVERYTHING you do for your posts, start to finish and even how you promote it.
Now that you have that list saved. In each of your cards when you get ready to write the post:
- Open up the card
- Click Checklist on the right side
- Select Copy Items From…
- And then select the checklist you created.
And voila! Each time you’re writing your post you can go in and check off everything on your list.
