January Wrap-Up

Is it just me or was January both the longest and the shortest month ever? I didn’t quite meet all of my goals for the month, but I did pretty good. My theme for the month was “content.” As in, creating content. To help with this, I participated in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I ended […]

And the Winner Is…

I wanted to wait until both challenges were finished before I announced any winners. Since this was my first time running challenges, there weren’t a lot of people participating. That was to be expected. As I do more and get my name out more, I expect there will be more people participating. Without further delay, […]

#PlannerPeaceChallenge Day 4

With the prevalence of smart phones and tablets, I understand the appeal of only using a digital calendar. I know it doesn’t work for me. Out of sight, out of mind. I do better when I use a combination. I put dates and notes in my phone and then write them in my planner later. […]

#PlannerPeaceChallenge Day 2

Pre-printed calendars are fine. I use one from Handy Forms LLC that I ordered from Amazon. Share a picture of […]

#PlannerPeaceChallenge

Everyone who uses a planner is looking for planner peace. It’s elusive, but it’s attainable. Let me be clear, this challenge itself will NOT get you to planner peace, but it will get you started down that path. Here are the prompts. 1. What houses your planner? 2. Start with your calendar (pre-printed is fine). […]

A New Challenge

Late last year, I hosted a challenge to help people get out of a creative rut. It seemed to go okay. Late December, I asked which kind of challenge you would prefer: one to increase your creativity or one to have a better planner. The results were evenly split. So we’ll do both. First up […]
