Welcome to the first Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival of the new year!

Since so many people are looking to make one or more positive changes at this time of year, I invited my readers to submit their blog posts about Next Steps.

It’s always fun to see the variety of different approaches to the monthly topic, and this is especially true now that participation is open to bloggers outside the organizing industry! I just know you’ll find something here to help you take your next step.

Please show the contributors your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their posts (or this one) on social media, using the hashtags #POBC #NextSteps.

Big thanks to everyone who contributed to this edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival!

I’m now accepting submissions for February’s Blog Carnival, when the topic will be A Peek Inside an Organizing / Productivity Expert’s Office. You have until 7 PM EST on Tuesday, February 18 to make your submission.

I recommend...

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.
