On-the-Ball Blog Tour Planner

On-the-Ball Blog Tour Planner Banner

Have you ever gotten out of bed in the middle of the night to finish scheduling a blog tour stop? Stress no more.

When I first started book blogging in 2014, I dove in deep.

Requesting ARCs from every source ever. Reviewing non-ARCs once a week. Signing up for blog tour and promo posts for any book I wanted to read.

I was posting, like, daily. It wasn’t even that unusual to post twice. And most of it was blog tours, so posting late wasn’t an option. Ack, the responsibility of adulting!

What made it even more confusing was that I’d sign up for multiple posts for one book:

  • Cover reveal
  • Release day blitz
  • Excerpt/interview/guest post
  • Review

Being the Type A nerd that I am, I obviously created a spreadsheet much fancier and prettier than I really needed, because of course I did.

And I logged my activity with tour companies religiously. From requesting a tour stop through to scheduling the post, promoting it on social media, and sending the link back to the tour organizer.

It worked.

I wasn’t missing sleep to finish reading ARCs or jumping out of bed to schedule tour stop posts.
