Using Trello to Organize and Plan Your Blog

March 7, 2012

Trello is one of my favorite tools to organize my blog content. I recently found out about this cool tool during through a co-worker and ever since then, I have been using it for personal, work, my blog. I am excited to share with you, my fellow bloggers, how to use it and how it will help your blog.

Getting Started

After setting up your account, start your first “board.” A board is a just a collection of lists (and lists hold the cards). You’ll probably want a board for each project you’re working on. Specifically for blogging, you could have a board for blog ideas, blog editorial calendar, and maybe even a board for blog enhancements and ideas.

Then you will create cards for individual tasks inside a board. The best part about this is you can upload attachments, assign a user, add dues dates, and make a checklist. This is perfect for an editorial calendar. For instance, you can upload your word document with the blog content and add due dates for your individual blog posts.

Adding Collaborators

If you are a team of bloggers, trello will make your life a lot easier. You can set up ideas for blogs, and then assign them to individual board members. You can comment and discuss the posts with edits in them.

It’s incredibly easy to invite people to a board, and then they will also receive notifications once on the board.

Mobile Friendly

Because of its responsive design, it works well on any mobile device. But they also have an iPhone app!

Staying Up-To-Date

What is even better about Trello is they are constantly growing and improving their product. They listen to their users and make adjustments as needed. They have a blog where they share best- practices, tips, and improvements.
