Don't Believe Everything You Read...

…but I’m totally cool if you believe this!

A couple of weeks ago, I submitted my blog to Feedspot for consideration to be listed as one of the Top 100 Organizing Blogs. Lo and behold, I made the list at #63! From what I understand, the list is always growing and changing based on discovery of new blogs, how often the blogs publish, and what their blog and social media audiences look like. So, it’s not as if this is The Definitive List. But it’s something!

One thing that I think makes me stand out from the rest of the pack is my approach to blogging about organizing. I believe that every useful organizing tip that exists is already out there on the internet. There’s no use in my reinventing the wheel by continuing to post the same old content as everyone else. Plus, that stuff just doesn’t interest me much - I don’t organize because it’s pretty, I do it because it makes people’s lives easier and better in a simple but meaningful way.

So, I’ve taken the approach of going a bit deeper. I want to ask the questions and bring up the topics that often get glossed over when people talk about creating #organizingporn. What lies beneath our desire to acquire, our tendency to get overwhelmed, our sense of peace when a space is clutter free? What’s going on that we’re trying to fix with stuff? What does organizing really make room for in our lives?

I also want to get more personal, because that’s the way I truly connect with my clients. You have to trust me before you’ll let me into your home, after all! So, I want to show you how I actually organize for the real life I live every day.

Ultimately, I stand for common sense organizing for modern urban living. If that’s your jam, you’re going to love this blog!
