2018 Highlights - Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Here it is, the final post in my 2018 Highlights series!

For many readers, the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival is the best part of Your Organizing Business. Since this resource wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for my contributors and sponsors, I couldn’t miss this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation.

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.
