Organizing after a disaster - Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

With a growing number of disasters (both natural and otherwise) occuring yearly, people are taking emergency preparedness more seriously than ever before. Despite that, many are not prepared for potential emergencies, and even those who are, or think they are, can be caught off guard.

For this month’s Blog Carnival, I invited my readers to help address those situations by submitting their posts on Getting Organized after a Disaster.

As you read the posts listed below, be sure to reach out to the bloggers by connecting with them on social media, leaving a comment, and/or sharing their posts with your own network. Please use the hashtags #POBC #disasterrecovery in your social media posts.

Please feel free to share your own tips in the Comments section.

Next month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival will be on Saying No, and submissions are now open. Whether you write a post specifically for the Blog Carnival, or submit one you’ve published in the past, we want to read it! You have until 7 PM EST on Tuesday, July 17 to make your submission.

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.

    Great collection of posts, Janet. It’s hard to think about what to do after a natural disaster, but when you are the mist of it, you carry on and get through it the best you know how. These posts help ease the anxiety. I’m going to be sharing these posts.

      Yes, we can handle much more than we think we can!
