Even as digital savvy as I am, I am still a paper and pen kind of girl. Let me explain...
I have a full time job as well as a variety of clients that I have to keep organized. If it weren't for my paper and pen notebooks and checklists, I would be so disorganized! (Confession: I also have chicken scratch notes all over my office, but they eventually get a place in my list LOL).
For some reason, I can't keep up with a digital calendar. I think it's probably the satisfaction of crossing something off my list with a pen! I couldn't possibly create enough content to cover how to stay organized because we all operate in different ways and have different client needs.

My other way of keeping on top of things is using a planner/strategist through Yes Please Creative, Inc.! Jeff, the owner and ultimate planner, has helped me stay on top of my content and plan when and how to promote it. He suggests blog content and a strategic plan on how to distribute the work. He also writes content and has a kick ass style that is to the point, but super impactful. Let me know if you could use his services and I will get you in touch!

In 2012, I joined web host Weebly to start The Real Haiti blog. I had no design experience, especially web design. Their super easy-to-use platform empowered me to take on web design on my own and then eventually including it in my business services.
