OH my! I’m 50 years old today!!!
The one thing that I am really celebrating is that 10 years at age 40, I changed my whole life for the better, which includes starting this Professional Organizing business. I am so proud and happy that I took an interest in myself and my well being. I invite all of you (at any age) to do the same!
Thank you for the bottom of my heart for all the support!
I laugh that my first blog wasn’t about Organizing. Morning Person
The first couple of posts werent, but my intention was to create an organizing blog. My reasoning was that I could expand my business and presence to gain more business. (It has) I had no idea where this would lead (I gained a radio show from this.) I didn’t realize how much work it is. I have gotten so much pleasure from doing this. Thank you to my brother JR LeMar who is a longtime blogger himself . iblogalot He helped me set up this blog!
Niche blogs such as this one take a longer time to find and gain an audience. Luckily organizing affects EVERYONE, so marketing this hasn’t been a huge challenge. I have expanded to Life Coaching and Health issues. I have a guilty pleasure, the CBS TV Show Big Brother and i have done a few posts on the show and they got me big readership numbers.
Five years! Over 1110 posts, 95% original content from ME! I have guest bloggers now! Last year I launched my Super Organizer University! The radio show is on iheartradio
I look forward to seeing where this blog goes from here. I have made some changes and will make a few more! Thank you for reading and subscribing to this.
The pic above was from Day 3 of my Bells Palsy. People have been asking Me what Bells Palsy is??? So I am providing a link for those who are curious. I am on a crusade to educate people on this condition. It can strike anybody at any age and time. There are several factors that go into how someone can get this. FOR ME, it was extreme stress!! So I am telling folks to MANAGE your stress!!! It is no joke. Having half of your face paralyzed is NO JOKE!
I am starting to get feeling back in my face. I am in pain tho, but I am pushing thru. Here is the link if you are interested in what Bells Palsy is:
I am still laying low so that I can recover fully! I will be back!!!!
Hello My followers!! How are all of you? Thank you for allowing me to continue to do this 4 years in. As times goes on, I am always looking at the blog. I am not in the same place I was 4 years ago, so my blog is naturally changing too.My viewership/readership is at an all time hit for this niche blog. That makes me so happy! Thanks you! So I am trying out some new things, and dropping others. I want to keep it fresh for you AND for me! Some of the changes have already happened, so you may recognize them, othekrs are being implemented. As always let me know what you think! Enjoy!
I am retiring (for now) the Quick Tip Tuesday and Thursdays and the Fast Friday Facts.
I’ve started doing bilingual posts in Spanish and Dutch.
I am starting the new categories: Super Share, Super Thought of the Day, and Super Tip, Super Product
I’m keeping the Sort Out Sunday (which i am working into a book), Super Organizer (about me)
I am evolving and morphing outside of this blog . My business is shifting to more media and teaching based services, less actual organizing. So its an exciting time for me and hopefully for all of you out there who follow me. Please continue to watch my progression. I will share the ups and downs with you along the way with lessons I learn.
Everyone keep dreaming and acting on those dreams!
I was recently told that I was being nominated for a prestigious award given to one person every year by an association I belong to. Then literally a few weeks later I was told by said association that I am not eligible because of a technicality. I was disqualified. Just like that. The high and then the low.
What was the thing that deemed me ineligible? It wouldn’t mean anything to you. It‘s basically my official status and type of membership. Associations and organizations have rules and some have tiers of membership. I joined this association 4 years ago next month. I joined for the prestige and the name that it carries in my industry. I joined at a certain tier. That tier has worked for me all this time because of how my business The Super Organizer has changed and morphed into more media and less actual organizing.
Well that came back to bite me. LOL So I am disappointed and a little upset, I still like to find lessons in everything. I am a positive person and stuff happens, it’s not the end for me.
When situations happen like this, you have to try to stay in the spirit of gratitude. Being nominated really does become an honor! I’ve had so many people within the association say the nicest things to me. I’ve made a bunch of new connections that will be fruitful. I never win awards, mainly because I don’t play the games/politics to get awards. I just stay in my lane and work for the people. I’m a worker bee and I just work on producing great content, being a nice person, and trying to reach and affect change in the world. You have to stay clear on who you are and not let disappointments change that for you. They are going to happen.
Also they went from not knowing who I was to knowing who I am and saying I was worthy for an award!! One of the top ones! That will never be taken away from me! I always say to you to celebrate the small victories. That is a great accomplishment for me and my brand. I can hold on to that. The fact that people wanted to reward me for my hard work that will always feel nice. Celebrate them and their kindness. Thank you ladies who nominated me!!
When a sudden disappointment happens, you have to dig deep and find the lesson in it. It can also be a time of reflection. Check in with yourself. Are you being true to yourself? Are there things you need to look at and change? I think check ins are always a good idea. So I check in with myself.
My path to here is of my doing and hard work and great choices AND some disappointments. My path going forward looks good and more disappointment may come.Its life! I have a lot going on and I am moving up and onward. THAT is my award!
I come from a very diverse background of cultures and languages. I have been doing this blog for 4 years now. I can see the analytics and I am told where my readers are from. I love it! Its great to know that my blog is international.
So I am trying something out. You may see a post on here in a different language from time to time. It my way of reaching out to those readers in their own language and possibly attracting new readers. I’m trying out a little diversity and seeing what the feedback is. I may eventually created a separate blog in those languages, i don’t know yet.
But don’t worry, the blogs in English will of course continue!
Thank You as always for being a great audience!
