Since this is National Procrastination Week, and I knew many organizers would have blogged about the subject, I invited my readers to share their posts in this month’s issue of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival. As you’ll see, the response was amazing.

Please join me in congratulating Janine Adams whose post Facing down the fears lurking in the clutter marks her 10th time in the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, making her our newest Professional Organizers Blog Carnival Star Blogger.

Don’t go away yet, because there’s lots more to come! As you read the various posts, don’t forget to network with your organizing colleagues by leaving comments, following them on Twitter, or sharing their posts with your own contacts.

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 an amazing group of bloggers. You should all be commended on your posts, and on not putting off submitting the posts to the carnival. 🙂

      Sadly, there were a few submissions that came in after the deadline, but as they say, “Ya snooze, ya lose!” Hey, why didn’t anyone cite that reason for not procrastinating?
