Professional Organizers Blog Carnival: 2016 in Review

Professional Organizers Blog Carnival: 2016 in Review

One of the most popular features of Your Organizing Business is the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, which has been hosted here every month since June 2009. This resource wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for all the wonderful people who participate.

Today I’d like to acknowledge everyone who was part of the Blog Carnival during 2016.


I’d like to express my sincere appreciation for those who sponsored the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival during the past year.

Consider maximizing your exposure by becoming a sponsor in 2017!

Thank you to everyone whose name is on this page! Let’s all keep up the good work in the new year.

And speaking of the new year, we’re going to kick things off in January with what I think is going to be a really hot topic – Best Organizing Advice Ever. Submit your post any time before 8:00 PM EST on Tuesday, January 17, 2017. Our topic for February will be Bedroom Organizing.

Please let me know if you’d like to suggest a topic or sponsor an upcoming edition!

A former professional organizer, I’m now a web designer and DIY marketing facilitator. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  2. Have I told you lately how much I love Professional Organizers Blog Carnival? I don’t always read all the posts, but I do read some of them, and I love the variety of approaches we all take to each month’s topic. Being a participant helps keep me blogging. Sometimes I submit a previous post, and sometimes the topic inspires me to write a new one. Thanks for all you do for the blogging organizers’ community, and for me personally, Janet!

  3. I always appreciate the opportunity to participate in the POBC as a contributor, sharer, and reader of the amazing posts that my colleagues feature. I’m honored to be a POBC Superstar blogger and will continue to contribute.

    Thank you, Janet for giving us this consistent, wonderful venue to be part of.
