WordPress Editorial Calendar Plugin

One of my favorite blog tools is a WordPress plugin – the WordPress Editorial Calendar. I do most of my writing on the weekends and schedule them throughout the week. This calendar shows me in a glance what’s done, what needs work and where I have holes that need to be filled. It also makes it easy to spread topics out so I don’t spend days droning on about the same thing.

Using the calendar, I can set up Tombstone Tuesday posts for a month and know they will show up each Tuesday morning. If I’m working on a series of related posts, I can schedule each part of the series – even if some of the future posts are little more than a title and some notes. The calendar shows me when a post is a draft or pending approval. If I can’t get a draft post done for the scheduled date, all I have to do is drag it to a new date. And there’s a lot more. This screencast gives you the complete tour.

So, what’s the bad news? This plugin is only available to self-hosted WordPress users. If you’re blog is on WordPress.com, the calendar isn’t available to you.
