Getting Back to a Routine - Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival

When a new school year starts, many of us consider it a new year for our businesses as well. As we transition from a more relaxed schedule to a regular routine, we tend to focus on the goals we set at the start of the year, while we still have time to achieve them.

To help others get back into the swing of things, I invited my readers to share their blog posts on the subject of Getting Back to a Routine for this month’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

This edition of the Blog Carnival is sponsored by Julie Stobbe of Mind over Clutter. Be sure to check out her latest project, Mind over Clutter Courses, and read how it came to be in my recent post, Can an E-learning or Membership Site help you grow your business?

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your own network. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

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.

    I love this topic. People can always use tips on creating routines. I’m planning on sharing them all on social media. Thanks for sharing my post as well.

      I think you’re the only one who specifically blogged about evening routines. It’s great to mix things up a bit!

    Thanks for including me in this terrific roundup. I’m having fun already popping around and seeing what people recommend. I think a lot of us talk about similar concepts, which I find affirming. If we all believe in routines, they must work!

      I suspect someone who was anti-routine wouldn’t contribute to this Blog Carnival, but you never know – a little controversy could stir things up a bit!

    I love all the different ways all of us approached the topic. What a great collection! Thank you for including me.
