The Professional Organizers Blog Carnival is back for another year! Our first issue for 2014 is all about the timely topic of Organizing Personal and Financial Documents, and sponsored by Family Documap. Read on for inspiration for organizing your clients’ documents or your own.

I’d like to wish a warm welcome to our newest participant:

John Trosko – The Carousel Of Computer Progress

A hearty congratulations to the latest Professional Organizers Blog Carnival Superstar Blogger:

Julie Bestry – Financial Filing—Scrapbooking snapshots of your money’s life (her 25th time in the Blog Carnival)

There’s plenty more here, so get comfy as you read the rest of the submissions:

Rashelle Isip – Organizing Tip: Keeping Your Finances in Order

Audrey Cupo – Document, Document, Document

Ellen Delap – Getting Started and Getting Done with Paperwork

Linda Samuels – Motivation & The Bottom of The Box

Angela Esnouf – Reduce, Rethink, Reorganise Paperwork

As you gather great ideas, be sure to take a moment to engage with the bloggers by leaving comments on their posts or connecting with them on social media. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow your network!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival. I hope you’ll all come back next month when our topic will be Organizing Arts & Crafts! You have until 10 AM EST on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 to submit your post, but no need to wait. The sponsorship for next month is still available, so please let me know if you’re interested or if you know someone who might be.

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.

    Wow, Janet! This looks like another great PO Blog Carnival. But I guess that’s no surprise. With a line-up like this, you can’t go wrong. Looking forward to reading the posts. Thank you once again for giving us the opportunity to be part of this community.

      One of the things I love about this feature is seeing who is taking part each month: regulars (like you), first-timers who are people I already know through social media or other sources (like John), and occasionally, first-timers who I’m meeting for the very first time.

    Thanks for the opportunity to participate in the organizing blog carnival, my first time. I bet it take a lot of work to pull together a group of professionals…many of them I’ve met personally, and some I want to get to know. It’s great so many like-minded people contribute to the community in the interest of exchanging ideas and processes…. I can’t wait to check them all out. Again, Thank you!
