1) What am I working on?
Business-wise, I’m preparing for what may be my biggest blogging month yet! I’m getting ready to officially release a Get Organized challenge, I’ll launch my third eBook titled Chaos to Clutter-Free next week, and I’m planning on participating in the annual 31Days writing challenge!
2) How does my work differ from others in its genre?
I think that all bloggers – and all organizers – are on a different walk in their own journeys. For example, Nony from A Slob Comes Clean is still working on decluttering her house – she’s not a natural organizer but she’s learning! Then there’s Lisa from Organize365 who’s always been organized and now goes into other people’s homes and offices to help them turn their spaces into something beautiful.
As for me, I’ve always loved being organized but I had a hard time finding my way. Now that my home is (mostly) clutter-free, I want to help others find that freedom as well.
3) Why do I write what I do?
I love to write about parenthood and Christianity, but once I started noticing that people kept coming back for more and more of my organizational articles, I started focusing in that area and it’s a great fit for me! I love writing about organizing. I also know how much I was hindered in my own life when my house was a mess, so I feel so honored to be able to help others in this way.
4) How does my writing/creating process work?
I fit writing into little pockets of time – mornings before my kids are awake, during afternoon quiet time, and a couple of evenings a week after they’re in bed. When I have larger projects going on (like now!), my husband is really great about letting me go to a local coffee shop one evening a week while he hangs out with our kiddos at home.
While I’m working, I generally write each article from start to finish but I’d like to get to the point where I’m working on several articles at one time. I’d love to crank out a few rough drafts one day, polish them up the next day, then a day of photo preparing, and then spend a day of final edits and scheduling.
