Whew — October was a doozy! And November has shown no signs of slowing down.
Although I made it through my commitment to write/post every day through the month of October, by the time it was over, I needed a brief recharge.
Writing is always part of my personal recharging, but I wanted to step back from writing about specific topics and deadlines for a little bit.
For quite awhile, I’ve struggled with how to branch out on this blog, and bring in more of my personality. I have a personal blog, and I often spend so much time debating with myself which blog a topic or post belongs on, that I end up not writing it at all. Taking on a 31 Day Series that touched on a deeply personal topic has allowed me to open the door to that on this blog.
With that in mind, I’m working on some things behind the scenes, to make things a bit more organized; something I’ve been trying to do for two years. Despite the fact that I do site designs for others, I’ve struggled to carve out time for doing it for our own site (and it’s why I refer to my blogs as the “Cobbler’s Children).
Instead of the ‘grand reveal’ I thought I’d have a few years back, when a new day dawned and the site was perfectly organized and a new design was in place, I’m going to take it in pieces (just like our current home remodel plans).
So I’m tidying up, and then I’m prettying up. And then there are some new things (*shhh a podcast*) coming soon after.
And I’m excited!
OH! and PS – while I’m talking about organization:
I’m preparing for the new year, and want to get a head start on my organizing for home and business.
I’m looking at the following planners and would love feedback from those of you familiar with them, or some other planners you’ve used (I’ve seen some good ‘make your own’ planners around the internetz as well – so feel free to add any of those you like in the mix too!)
One requirement: not digital. I use my phone and computer, but I lay everything out in my paper one first
Please weigh in on your favorites, and especially if you’ve used either of these. I’d like to know what you like about them (and don’t like)
