Would you be surprised to know besides running my organization business and blogging part-time that I have a bigger plans in the works? Clearly I have too much energy and require little sleep. #ha As if I don’t have enough going on. You’ll see and hear more about one of my projects this summer / early fall during its launch. I’m really excited and can’t wait to share the details! Hint: It’s going to help hundreds of you that have asked the same question…month after month…year after year. What’s giving me that motivational push to move forward on the project is the help and inspiration from a few blog friends…and TIME MANAGEMENT skills.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about time management and increased productivity. I’m swallowing my own words, friends. With my already jam-packed schedule, effective time management is the only way this project will launch later this summer. Especially with my 3 kids home from school for 8+ weeks. I’ve talked with clients countless times about how “all or nothing” thinking isn’t realistic. I’ve had to give myself that same pep talk on the days I consider going away for a month to get the entire project knocked out. That is so not realistic. And so anti-Sam. I love taking each day as it comes. Each step…one in front of the next. And I want the end result to be a quality product you will love! Time management, meet your new best friend for the next several months = me!
A few back-end blog updates have been going on…nothing you’d notice, but it was a huge step for me as I tackled the tech side of the change almost entirely myself. Just one hair-pulling episode that involved contacting my Web Designer, Lesley. She helped with what she said “only took seconds” to remedy. She’s a Godsend, I tell you! What did I do? I moved from Madmimi to ConvertKit for my blog post delivery via e-mail.
While some of you love reading Simply Organized on a feedreader, like BlogLovin, many of you enjoy having posts delivered straight to your inbox. I have to admit, I’ve personally enjoyed opting-in to this feature for many blogs I read. I have a BlogLovin account and the app too, but when you sign-up for e-mail delivery, the blogger frequently sends you special incentives, freebies or you become an insider. Some even have a weekly newsletter where they wrap up their entire week into one simple share…instead of receiving many e-mails throughout the week. I love that because I love a clean inbox. Madmimi was a great starter service for me when the site / blog moved to WordPress, but soon found I was ready for an upgrade. I’d been hearing the ConvertKit love songs from many-a blogger…so I too made the jump. (If you are thinking about starting a blog or already have an existing blog, I highly recommend ConvertKit! It’s amazing! You can find more about their service by clicking here.)
And couldn’t be more happy with their service so far…or the future possibilities.
