We have noticed more and more of you planner babes using our system to create 'social media planners'. Today we're sharing how mambi Design Team members Erica Canant (IG | blog) and Stephanie Howell (IG | blog) dedicated one of their MINI Happy Planners® to organizing their social media content and scheduling when to post.

About this planner, Erica writes:
"I have been wanting to invest more time in my blog and Instagram - getting a more regular posting schedule down. In order to do that, I knew I needed to P-L-A-N or else it wouldn't happen.So, I dedicated one of my MINI Happy Planners® to the social cause! I chose to use the MINI because I simply wanted to schedule them out, note the topics, and know when I needed to take pictures etc."
"For the month spread, I simply marked what days I wanted to post my blog, any important dates that I'd need to take pictures for or plan further out in advance, and any set Instragram posting days like #FunCornerFriday or #mambiQuoteOfTheWeek. Then for the week, I planned it out in more detail. After doing this for a couple of weeks now, I have noticed that each week I will probably want to lay it out a bit differently. That's one of the things I love about The Happy Planner® — I can keep it consistent each week and month, or I can change it up whenever I want!"
"...and decorating is still a must, especially for this! There are so many mambi stickers that bring great inspiration and reminders when it comes to social media. For instance, I used the 'Compete with Yourself' sticker so that I would remember to not compete with others on these platforms. It's really easy to compare my IG game with others; but the only person I need to compete with...is myself! I love having that reminder at the top of my March month."

About these pages, Stephanie writes:
"At the start of the year, I made it a goal to be a better blogger in 2017. I have blogged for about 10 years now, but it's fallen by the wayside last year and I want so badly to change that. ENTER: the MINI Happy Planner® that I converted to my functional blog planner!"
"Easy peasy and super simple, just the way I like it. I added a blog post topic for each day and some layered tiny sticky notes with reminders. I also used the notepad to add a little brainstorming/topic insert in the middle of my weekly spread. I'm really trying to keep my planning life simple and functional this year. I have a tendency to worry so much about the decorating that I don't actually get stuff done."
