Anywho, it's better late than never, right? (",)
Here's the next on my organizing projects list - organizing my blogs. Yes, blogs.
To be honest, when I was introduced to the blogosphere by a dear friend, the first question I was asked was if I want to earn an extra income. I was already a widow then and being a single mom to a kiddo, I didn't have second thoughts at all. I was super delighted.
It has been six years since then and from that time on, I've already created more than one blog with different categories in each. And the blogs really helped me tremendously when it came to providing my son with his needs and also for him to be able to enjoy the good things a private school has to offer. He went to Montessori School back in my home country.
I have to say though that although earning money was the very first reason why I got into blogging, it is not the only thing that is making me happy about it. My blogs have become my outlet. I find great joy in sharing my adventures not only in life but in every facet of the world around us. From food to shopping, to the travels we've made as a family, to my son's milestones, etc.
I used to have a notebook where I wrote down everything about my blogs. They weren't grouped so whenever I needed a detail about a certain blog, I had to flip through pages and sometimes missed the right page and had to go back. It was time consuming to the point of annoyance.
And then I came across blog posts about Martha Stewart's Home Office with Avery discbound notebook. Without a doubt, it was what I needed to organize my blogs so off we went to Staples.
Being a lover of the color blue, the discbound notebook was oh so perfect! Look how lovely the color is. It is light, bright and so pleasing to the eyes.
The discbound plastic dividers are simply the perfect solution in grouping my blogs. I bought two. Needless to say, I have more than one blog. You might wonder how I manage to keep up with each and everyone of them, huh? (",)
Since I don't have a label maker, I asked the husband to do it for me since he got one at work. I gave him a list of words to make and there you go. The words you see were parts of the title of each blog. Putting the whole title of each blog won't fit so I figured that's the best thing to do.
Life talks about my family, our home and our life in general; Sweet is my food blog; Chic is my shopping blog; Roads is my travel blog and Den is the blog that I dedicate to my son. There are more blogs under those five blogs but since they are the only ones that were showing, I decided to just talk about them. I hope that's okay with you (wink!).
So there you have it...my pretty blog notebook. Thanks to Martha! (",)
But .my organization doesn't end here because tell you what, this was only the second task and there are still millions that need to be done. Imagine that!
