Goodbye 2009!

I don’t think I’m the only person this week who is looking back at the year 2009 and wondering how it has passed so quickly. On the other hand, so much has happened that I didn’t foresee a year ago, including the creation of this blog and its rapid popularity. It seems only fitting that I close off the year by thanking the many people who have contributed to its success.

I am very grateful for each and every one of my readers, especially those who have left comments or been involved in some other way. I’m sorry that I can’t thank you all personally, but I’d like to offer a special mention to a few special people. First, the professional organizers who have shared their experience and time as Guest Bloggers:

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.
