@rich-brooks Hey Rich
I do have one, but I call it a content calendar. I use a Google Spreadsheet with 4 tabs – yearly, quarterly, monthly and weekly.
This offers a good combination of scheduled content and flexibility.
The Yearly tab is an overview with just dates and a colour-code system for various content types (blog post, eBook, workshop, etc) and deadlines.
The Quarterly tab is an overview of what I want to achieve each quarter, with 3 major releases each quarter (usually one per month).
The Monthly tab gives me a focus on any particular month, allowing me to concentrate on the content for a given month.
The Weekly tab is more practical and gives me a list of exactly what I need to do each week. This way I can come in Monday morning and know exactly what I need to do that week.
I have even started thinking about what I want to release in 2013!
I have only started using this system (which I created through trial and error) for a short period, but it is now a necessity – without it I wouldn’t be able to create the content I do.
