E-Books – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Last year, March was officially declared as Read an E-Book Month in Canada, so I thought it would be fun to dedicate this month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival to the topic of e-books. As usual, the response has been varied, informative, and a lot of fun! Read on to find out what professional organizers have to say about e-books.

As I did with the Book Reviews edition of the Blog Carnival, I’ve replaced the post titles with the names of the e-books mentioned in the posts. Some were written by the organizers themselves, and others are recommended reading.

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.

    What a great collection of posts, Janet. I was fascinated by the variety of topics and uses for writing ebooks. My book, The Other Side of Organized – Finding Balance Between Chaos & Perfection, is available as a paperback, but also for all ebook formats (Kindle, Nook, iPad, & Sony Reader.) Links to the various types of formats are one click away on my website. Here’s the link: https://www.ohsoorganized.com/the-other-side-of-organized-book.

    Until this post appeared, I didn’t know that YOU wrote an ebook about getting started on Twitter. I enjoyed reading Margarita’s review of it.

      Linda, I didn’t realize that your book was available in so many formats!

      Readers, you might want to read my review of The Other Side of Organized as well as Linda’s informative post about how she brought it to fruition.

      The fact you weren’t aware of my Twitter Guide shows how long it’s been since I wrote it, because we’ve known each other quite a while now! There have been so many changes that I had to update it last year, and according to a post by Jay Baer I read recently, there are even bigger changes to come!

        Thank you for sharing those posts (again) with your readers. You’re too good to me, Janet. As long as we’re sharing, perhaps your readers will enjoy seeing the “Ask the Expert” interview I did with you about enlisting help. It’s one of my favorites because you share such wonderful insights, especially about the benefits of reaching out. Here’s the link:


        I think you and I have both discovered that what seems obvious to us, and perhaps what we just take for granted, others don’t know about. For example, I didn’t know you had an ebook. You didn’t know mine came in all the ebook formats. Who knew that we’d both get an “ah-ha” from your PO Blog Carnival this month. Thank you for that.

          The benefits of the Blog Carnival have far exceeded my expectations, both for myself and for the bloggers who participate. Thank you for being a part of it!

            Love a good Carnival, and yours my friend, is THE BEST!!! Cotton candy, ferris wheel, and all! 🙂
