Professional Organizers Blog Carnival 10th Anniversary Edition

Thank you for joining me in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival!

I am honored to introduce our sponsor for this very special edition, Anne Blumer of the Institute for Professional Organizers™. The owner of SolutionsForYou, Inc. since 2003, Anne authored Mastering the Business of Organizing as well as the Institute for Professional Organizers™ curriculum, training manuals, and program. To learn more about Anne and her business journey, read her Organizer Interview.

To mark this momentous occasion, I asked my readers to contribute blog posts with the number 10 (or the word “ten”) in the title, and I’m just amazed at the response. We’ve got top ten lists, ten-minute tasks, and a whole lot more.

As you read, take a moment to leave some comments and to share  your favorite posts with your network. Please use the hashtag #POBC10 when you talk about the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival on social media.

Thanks to everyone who contributed, especially our wonderful sponsor!

Next month’s Blog Carnival topic is Efficiency in the Workplace and our sponsor will be Mitrefinch Inc. You may make your submission any time from now until Tuesday, July 16 at 7:00 PM EDT.

If you’re interested in sponsoring a future edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, please let me know!

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.
