Best of 2019 – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

For the final Blog Carnival of 2019, I asked my readers to submit their best blog post of the year. I left it up to them how to interpret the word “best” but a few of the reasons shared with me for the selections were:

  • most traffic
  • most feedback
  • most fun to write

As you read what my readers consider their best posts of 2019, you’re sure to pick up some valuable tips and perhaps even some inspiration for your own blog!

Please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your own network. Please use the hashtags #POBC and #Bestof2019 in your social media posts.

Thanks to everyone who shared their Best of 2019! Be sure to come back next week to find out who has attained the rank of Star Blogger, Superstar Blogger, or Megastar Blogger during the past year, and which editions were the most popular.

It’s not too early to start thinking about next year! Please let me know what topics you’d like to read or write about or if you know of a potential sponsor (maybe even yourself!).

In the meantime, go ahead and submit a post to January’s Blog Carnival, when the topic will be Next Steps.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Such a fun idea to invite us to share these posts! I’ve read many of them already, but look forward to exploring the ones that are new to me. I love this blogging community:) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All!

    I can’t wait to do a deep dive into these “best of” posts. Thank you for the continuing opportunity to participate in the #POBC with all of my wonderful colleagues and fellow bloggers. Wishing you all the best for a fabulous 2020!

      I wish I’d thought to ask everyone to say why they chose what they did. A few volunteered the information but most didn’t. See you in ’20!

    I’m so pleased to have been included in this 2019 “best of” piece. I’m slowly making my way through each person’s posts and sharing many of them on Twitter. Catherine Barnsley isn’t on Twitter, to enjoy my Elvis Costello-themed reply to her post, which is a shame, because “The angels wanna wear her red shoes!”

      Didn’t you love that post? I really enjoyed both the post itself and the accompanying photo. I hope Catherine will be joining us again in 2020!

    I am always thrilled to be included with these professionals. You can learn something with the advice provided by these organizers. I still love writing about organizing. Thank you for all the work that you do Janet!

      It’s my pleasure, Margarita. I hope you’ll be able to continue participating in 2020!
