BOOKENDING SPRING 2019: I Give A Sheet

bookending springHappy first weekend of Bookending Spring Story tellers! This week has been a whirlwind, and the hosts and I are captivated by your enthusiasm and participation in this event! Hanging out with you guys on Twitter (@bookend_events) has been an utter blast and I literally cannot wait until tomorrow for our first ever Twitter chat! Continuing my reign strong here as host our next prompt  from AJ @ For the Love of Diversity in Books is finger deep into the organization game!

So without further ado, let’s get into today’s prompt!

 I Give a Sheet
I’ll be featuring some (maybe 5) helpful spreadsheets for bloggers

When I first began blogging, I use to create my own spreadsheets for running and maintaining the blog, but as I started getting comfortable and growing I realized I needed something with a little bit more MEAT to it. It was a month before Bookend Event’s first event (Blogoween) where I met my dear wonder twin, Kal @ Reader Voracious, who introduced me to her AMAZING spreadsheet, which I instantly began using and has now become my go-to source for all bookish things regarding both my reading and my blog!

Now since I only use Kal’s spreadsheet, I’m going to be listing three different useful spreadsheets and places that can help keep bloggers organized! So a little different from the original prompt, but that’s because I don’t know many spreadsheets!

  1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious’s Ultimate Spreadsheet: literally goals is what this spreadsheet is! I am a lover of data and statistics, so when I began implementing this spreadsheet into my blogging regime, I was thrilled to see different charts and ways to analyze blogging AND bookish data. The Spreadsheet literally has it all folks, from keeping track of ARCs, hauls, buddy reads, and stats the spreadsheet of Olympus also has a twelve month calendar within it that you can plan/schedule your blog posts in (SUPER DUCKING USEFUL FAM). I honestly have heart eyes thinking about this spreadsheet (which I have open currently).
  2. Goodreads Stats: I recently made a Guide to help maximize your time on Goodreads and while curating it’s info, I realized just how impactful and useful it’s stats page is to book bloggers! Goodreads automatically collects data from the books you’ve read and the dates you enter, into a simple chart that is easy to use and analyze.
  3. Book Riot’s Ultimate Reading Spreadsheet: If you are like me and always wondered what you would find if you began tracking your reading–look no further fam, Book Riot last year released an epic spreadsheet that can collect data of  “title, author, author gender, dates started and finished, page number, genre, format, where I got the book, country of origin of the author, and if the author is a POC”

  1. Spreadsheets…ah we have a difficult relationship see cause I am firmly a lover of paper planning. I do however adore Kal’s spreadsheet, and use like 3 of the sheets (I deleted all the other sheets I knew I wouldn’t be using) but honestly spreadsheets are super duper useful if you find digital planning/tracking easier or like me, you prefer to track certain things digitally. This reminds me, I need to update stats for the blog ugh…thanks Sam for reminding me love! This post is still awesome though hehe, spreadsheets are weirdly hard to find? At least ones which are pre-created and can help the book community out
