The Biggest Lie You’re Telling Yourself

While I normally like to keep my posts upbeat, today I’m going to talk about something a bit more personal that we desperately need to address more as writers, especially bloggers. I wasn’t planning on publishing this post — it’s been in my drafts almost five months — but I can’t ignore the topic anymore.

So. Here it goes.

I’ve only been blogging for a few months now. It would make sense that I don’t have hundreds of views a day or 500 followers.* But, still, I was in a bit of an emotional slump because of it a little while ago.

I’m an INFJ and don’t like people feeling bad for me, so I didn’t tell anyone and played it off like blogging and writing was easy-peasy. Cool beans. A piece of cake.

But, honestly? I was comparing, and I was slowly losing hope for myself.

What To Do While In The Midst Of Procrastinating (Like We Need Help Anyway)

Today, I was supposed to post Organize Your World part 4. But guess what??

I PROCRASTINATED YAY!!

And don’t think I had a good excuse.

‘I’m thinking’ is just another way to say I haven’t done it yet and I don’t really want to so I’m making a bunch of excuses to avoid it.

So, yes, I avoided writing the post I had meant to write, and instead wrote about all the things I’ve been doing in the meantime you can do while being stubborn and procrastinating.

Have fun. I’ll be in a pit of despair.dividerflat

#OYW – Planner Tour & Organized Blogging Pt 1

Heyo, everybody!! It’s week number three of #OrganizeYourWorld! Honestly, I didn’t know until yesterday that I was going to be like Susanne Collins and split the last segment up into two parts. But here we are so yeah!

Bloggers (and writers) especially seem to have a hard time with procrastination. School, writing, work, chores… somehow, we continue to push them away until the last possible second. We may not intend to do it, but it always seems to happen. So how do you take back your time?

Weeeellll, part one is all about scheduling your time and posts by using a planner or bullet journal. Yes, folks, today I’ll be introducing you to my baby 2018 Erin Condren Planner. And I’m totally going to be a dork about organizing and planners again! WOHOO!

#OrganizeYourWorld – Tech Organization

It’s post number two of #OrganizeYourWorld!!

design-40

So it appears the first post was a success, no matter how incredibly scatterbrained and rant-y it was! I was really happy to see your reactions; yay for organizing friends 😀

Unfortunately, some of you don’t use desks. And that made me upset, because I want everybody who reads to at least have the opportunity to organize through #OYW. It’s fun! It’s a group activity! (in a way…)

But this week is about something EVERYBODY uses. It’s what you’re using right now to read this. It’s…. technology!!

If you’re a writer, blogger, student, or human being living in 21st century America, it’s safe to say that you’re pretty familiar with technology. But it’s also safe to say that your documents, pictures, and apps are at least a little bit cluttered with everything going on in busy busy LIFE.

Because Life™ is just so considerate.

THANKFULLY you’ve got a girl on your team who’s so crazy about organizing, she made a mini guide for you! Soo… let’s get to it! *jazz hands*

#OrganizeYourWorld – DIY Desk Makeover (+ Desk Hacks!)

Welcome to the first post of my #OrganizeYourWorld series!

design-40

IM SO HOOPED YALL. SO. HOOPED.

I got lots of support from last post’s comments about this series so that made me extra extra excited to get going on this organizing stuff! To be perfectly honest, I’m also a little nervous – it’s my first series and it’s on a very wide topic aaahhhhh! – but your support is super encouraging so thank you so much ❤

To kick off the 4-part series, we’re going to be addressing what I feel is a pretty big topic when it comes to organizing – workspaces. AKA your desk, AKA the thing you probably use 20+ hours a week. And, at least at first sight, this is a pretty overwhelming project.

BUT WHY ELSE DO YOU THINK I HAVE THIS SERIES?? Let’s get started!!

A Bunch Of Awards (Am I Really This Popular??)

Hi guys. So I’m popular now.

Let me explain how this happened (and no I’m not actually popular and will never be, thank you very much).

I got nominated for awards…5 times???

OHMYGOODNESS GUYS. I FEEL APPRITIATED IN MY ART FORM HAHAH.

I was tagged for the Liebster Award by four lovely ladies: Faye, EmSarah, and Olivia.

And then I got tagged AGAIN for this award I’ve never heard of, The New Blogger Award (which makes me extra special because I’m new) by Starling!

THANKS GUYS!! It’s always kind of crazy to get mentions like this from blogs you read all the time so you guys kinda made my day. (Or days. Yanno, I’m far too technical.)
