All in all, it was a pretty exciting year, with five new Star Bloggers and seven new Superstar Bloggers!

As you can imagine, keeping track of it all has become a major undertaking, so I’m making a few changes in order to streamline the work that goes on behind the scenes. As one of those changes, instead of announcing new Star and Superstar Bloggers each month, everyone who achieves either status during the year will be honored in a special post next December.

I’d sure love to include your name in that post, whether as a sponsor, a Superstar or Star Blogger, or a Professional Organizers Blog Carnival contributor!

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.

    Hi Janet-

    It’s a wonderful feature that you provide each month… a venue for organizers to share their tips, ideas and strategies on a variety of relevant topics. You’re wonderful about sharing and promoting all of us and I’m truly grateful.

    The bonus was getting to meet you in person this year at the NAPO conference in Phoenix.

    Thank you for all you do and for this ongoing opportunity to share.

    Big hugs,

      Linda, meeting you and at least 9 other Blog Carnival participants in Phoenix was a HUGE thrill for me – one that’s going to be difficult to match in 2015!

        With the new year around the bend, I’m thinking you’ll have many more awesome experiences coming to pass. Wishing you all good things and amazing times ahead! Happy 2015!

    Janet, you are an original that has contributed so much. Love this venue and reading thoughts of other organizers. connecting is the best way for an organizer to not feel they have to reinvent the wheel. Cheers – Steve Ilott Oakville, Ontario

    The Professional Organizers Blog Carnival is something that I enjoy reading every month (as well as contributing to occasionally). I always glean useful information from it, and really enjoy reading the variety of perspectives on a particular topic. We can learn so much from one another!

    Kudos to you for all of the hard work involved with putting this valuable resource out each month. I look forward to working with you in 2015!

      Thanks, Natalie! It can be a lot of work, especially when a topic generates 30+ contributions, but it’s worth it to know that others find it valuable. I look forward to reading your posts next year.
