Expanding on “Blogging with Scrivener”

Back in April I wrote a post about blogging with Scrivener. Since then I’ve expanded on this a little more. Previously I had just broken down each month into it’s respective days. Well now I’ve gone further and added the following folders to the months:

  • Days
  • To-Do’s
  • Focus
  • Reviews & Giveaways
  • Notes
  • Stats
  • Social Media


I’ve also added a couple of general folders to cover the entire blog:

  • Ideas
  • Monetary

I’m not actually using the last two, but thought they were worth including for future possible planning. I’ve used tables and pretty colours to make it all look a little stylish.

bloggingI also spent a little time changing the icons to make things a little clearer to find (and yes, a little prettier). I really like having everything in one convenient place. Although, I still wish I could link to files inside other projects and push finished blog post directly to wordpress.

I’m only just starting to enter data into my lovely new folders and files. I’ve just finished setting up the planning really and I still find a few things that don’t work for me or need a little tweaking to fit my needs, but still I thought you might all like to see my current thought processes on this.

To be honest, Scrivener needs to do more work on the ‘tables’ feature. It’s unpredictable at times, the cell’s will change size unexpectedly or you will have to tab or Shift-tab through cells to actually be able to select and write in the cell you want at times, but there’s always a work around that you can find pretty quickly, and although a little annoying, it doesn’t slow me down.

A feature that comes in really handy for planning is the duel screen mode.


It’s great to be able to see both your To-Do list and say your Reviews planning screen  at the same time. Or perhaps you want to see your To-Do list and your year planner:


Obviously you can add as many folders or files to cover whatever information you want to plan for on your blog, get creative or just plan crazy. Happy blogging and planning.
