The All-In-One Notion Template for Content Writers FREE

You are constantly seeking inspiration as a content writer. 

The smallest details will affect both my creativity and productivity, it can be my desk's arrangement, my cup of coffee, or tea (I literally change cups every week... still looking for the perfect cup! ). Most of the time, too, it's the way I arrange my blogs!

My loyalty to Notion comes before anything else, and I believe that it is one of the most convenient tools for bloggers. 

I have developed this template after seeing tens of other creative ones, and I tried my amplest to make it suitable for both writers with and without any SEO knowledge (which you should get).

When you're ready to write a new blog, you'll go to your blog calendar. Here's my personal blog preparation process.

1. Brainstorming Blog Ideas

Content writers are creative! 

The problem is that it is common for you not to write down all of your ideas. 

If you write down every single idea you have, you'll see a big difference!

Here's how you do it:
add new blog idea

2. For the sake of this blog, let's prepare a blog about brand managers. Of course, you won't have a title in mind right ahead (usually), so we're just writing the idea of a "brand manager"

3. In case you work with a team of bloggers: you can choose to whom to assign this blog.

4. Select a blog category
Note: You can and shall change the categories to be in the same niche for better SEO results.

5.With the post type selected, you can create templates for blogs, youtube videos, and social media posts.

2.  In Progress

When you've decided that your post idea fits your website, you can move it from the "Ideas" column to the "In Progress" column.

  • Blog Post Template
Here is the blog template you'll see:

  • Research

  • Keyword Research
After polishing your keyword research, you can put the main keywords you're focusing on.

  • Meta Description
brainstorm your meta data on Notion for SEO
The meta description (tag) is an important part of your writing, which is why I gave it a personalized section. A meta description is crucial for SEO, so I never ignore it.

  • Draft
The notion is not a word processor, that's why I have never used it as one. I personally write my posts using Google Docs or Grammarly, then paste them in the draft section.

3. In Review

Once the drafting is done, I immediately move the card to the "In Review" column.
Then, I would add the blog's picture using the media feature:

Later on, I will be editing the blog and making several changes.

4. Published

Once a blog a published, I move to the last column, and fill in the details:

Other than the Status view, you can choose two others.

You might choose the "Published" view and only see published content.

Or see your blogging progress using the "Calendar view":
