Why I Can't Live Without my Get to Workbook Planner (And How 10 Other People Use It) by Erin Baynham

Get to Work Book It's no secret that planners are a big thing right now. It's like putting everything on paper makes you more accountable or something. Well I've gone through a few planners, and let me tell you, the Get to Workbook is everything to me! It's a project based planner, perfect for me and my blog and business. It lacks a lot of color and flashy stuff--which is absolutely perfect for customization. I've used stickers, stamps, post its, highlighters, pens, pencils, you name it. The entire book is dated for you, so you don't have to waste time plugging in dates. Every month also includes a project sheet (see how I used my September project sheet below), a reflection sheet, an open grid sheet and an affirmation.

The 2017 book is available now, so check it out!

If you're looking for some ideas, let me show you what people have posted on the gram. Get ready for some planner porn.

How To Create a Youtube Channel Banner for Free Using Canva by Erin Baynham

youtube channel banner how to When you're serious about your Youtube channel, there are a few things that you can do to brand yourself. One of the easiest ways to customize the experience for viewers is to create banner art for your homepage. I've seen people create all kinds of banners--some include their social media handles, their upload schedules, a call to action, or a collage of pictures.

Today, I'd like to share a simple tutorial that shows you how to create a simple branded Youtube channel banner using one of my favorite free web tools, Canva. I took one of the pictures from my photoshoot with my brother, and I added my social media username. In the future, I'll probably change this, but it worked well for the demo.

While the banner seems simple, it gets a little tricky due to the size dimensions for TV, mobile and desktop viewers. Here's how Youtube breaks it down:

Channel art may look different on desktop, mobile, and TV displays. For the best results on all devices, we recommend uploading a single 2560 x 1440 px image.

Minimum width: 2048 X 1152 px. This is the "safe area," where text and logos are guaranteed not to be cut off when displayed on different devices.

Maximum width: 2560 X 423 px. This means that the "safe area" is always visible; the areas to each side of the channel art are visible depending on the viewer’s browser size.

If you're not sure about the width and height of an image, download our Channel Art Templates to see how images show on different devices. You can use your computer's image editor or find one online to resize the images.

I hope this tutorial is helpful!
