Go to the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival Star Bloggers page for links to individual blogs.

There isn’t currently a badge higher than Megastar Blogger, but I may create a new one when someone passes 100 entries. That won’t happen before 2023, so I have lots of time to decide what to call it!

Last but not least, I’d like to pay tribute to the many bloggers who came back this year and are one step closer to becoming Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival Star Bloggers.

I am so thankful for each and every one of the bloggers listed above. If I missed naming you or if your recognition is late (at least two of you), I sincerely apologize.

To date nearly 300 bloggers have contributed over 2500 posts to the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival. That’s a lot of good reading! And those bloggers are still enjoying the benefit of the added exposure they gain through exposure on Your Organizing Business.

If you’ve never participated, I hope you’ll consider joining us next year. You can start right away by submitting a post to January’s Blog Carnival, when we’re looking at Neurodiversity, thanks to sponsorship by The MindFlows Planning Collection.

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.

    My favorite thing about being a Megastar Blogger is that I wasn’t trying to achieve anything. It was my pleasure to participate in however many blog carnivals I have over the years. Until now. Now I want to know how many I’ve got and how many I need to achieve the potential next level. At this point in my blogging career it might take some effort on my part, lol! Thanks, Janet, for providing this wonderful platform for us (and for our readers).

      Hazel, you’ve been in 78 carnivals, so the soonest you can qualify is 2023. Good luck!

    Wow, I”m honored to reach “megastar” status! This is always such a terrific roundup of information, and I couldn’t be joining a better group. Thanks for organizing us, Janet! Looking forward to more great sharing in 2022.

      I’m so excited for you! I knew you would qualify when we were speaking earlier this year, but didn’t want to spoil the surprise. ?
