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.

    What a great collection for this time of year! Thanks for sharing it. This was before my time so it is nice to see these posts I missed.

      There are lots of oldies but goodies on this blog as well as in the Blog Carnival posts themselves!

    Great list! Lots of expert advice.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 14, 2021 at 12:35 pm

      I thought it was time I brought this one back to life. 🙂

    It’s always great to bring an older post “back to life.” What a great roundup of posts! Clearly, we are an inspired group for blogging about the holidays. Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy season and a great New Year!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 15, 2021 at 1:33 pm

      This was certainly a popular topic and it’s wonderful that most of the posts are still online! Unfortunately, I’ve had to remove many of the early submissions because the organizer has retired or shut down their business and the links no longer work.

  5. Julie Bestry Julie Bestry on December 14, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Wow, talk about a round-up of classic posts! Eight years ago feels like a century! And yet almost everything in these posts offers timeless advice. I’ve discovered some “new” (old) blogs and bloggers that were ahead of their time. Thank you for boosting this!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on December 15, 2021 at 1:34 pm

      Some of these bloggers are still around but they haven’t been joining the Carnival lately. How can we get them to come back? 😀
