Full disclosure: I’m a list-making fanatic. Ever since I was young, I’ve been making lists for everything! Shopping lists, lists for my goals, lists for new ideas, lists of books I want to read, and of course, to-do lists! Lists help keep me sane and at ease.

Filling up your editorial calendar with quality content is key to your success as a lifestyle blogger! But I also know that coming up with blog post ideas for lifestyle bloggers isn’t always easy! But because I filled out my editorial calendar a couple months ago, I now know exactly what I’m writing about each week until the end of June.
