Confessions Of A Plannerholic: Top 10 Blogs

I don’t know about you but I love reading other blogs. I find them inspiring and helpful. Not all of the blogs I read are planner related but the majority are.
Today’s post is a list of my top 10 blogs.

  1. How To Gyst – I have been following Laura for well over a year now and her blog is one that I go back to frequently. I love how honest she is about everything and how practically inspiring she is. There is a wealth of information on Laura’s blog and definately worth a good read.
  2. Philofaxy – This is a site ran primarily by Steve Morton. It has a mass of knowledge about all things paper planning. There is also a great section of printables to be found on here as well.
  3. A Beautiful Plan – Kelly Vizma is the face behind A Beautiful Plan. Not only does she run a lovely little business and creates the most gorgeous stickers she also has a great blog full of prettiness, tips and tricks.
  4. UglyBugDoes – I maybe a little biased here as Michelle is a real life friend as well as a planner buddy but her blog is great. It isn’t just all stationery and pretty planners but she also discusses life, children and health. A full mix of everything Michelle:)
  5. Geraldine Jayne – Geraldine is such an inspiration. Her blog is full of positive vibes and colour. This has to be my number 1 creative inspiration site.
  6. Strange & Charmed – Ran by Alexis aka Miss Trenchcoat, Strange & Charmed is a fantastic site for productivity and efficency. Alexis also runs many free webinars to join which help boost productivity and she has alot of online buisness resources.
  7. The Literary Llama – One of my absoutely favourite book blogs. I love the way the reviews are done.
  8. ReadSleepBlog – Not only does this blog contain book reviews but there are numerous challenges which one can partake in. It’s fun and lively.
  9. Wonderfully Bookish – I love this blog, I don’t have any other reason than I just do. I love all the information Charlotte posts and her reviews.
  10. Saturday On Wednesday – I have so much love for this blog it’s unreal. I adore everything about it. The content is so funny ( and you should watch her youtube Book_Roast videos). The content is honest when doing reviews and G isn’t afraid to tell it how it is. The content is hugely varied as well so there is something for everyone.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my top 10 blogs and that you find something on them which you also will enjoy. I really could have added at least 5 more.

Please do not forget to take a look at all the other beautiful ladies blogs that are taking part.

Confession 1… A Tale of Parental Ninja Skills

Kids…kids and planner addict parents aren’t always a good combination.  I mean yeah organisation is on spot, events are well planned and everything you need to know about your homelife is documented and alphabetised. However, I am not a good planner addict mummy and this is my first confession. 

I hide my planner supplies. I love my children and I am all for their creative exploration but not at the expense of my planner pretties. I will and have sulked about the misuse of washi, pen scribbles on my planner pages and people using my precious pens. The 13 year-old premenstrual teenage girl comes out in me and it isn’t pretty. 

Aside from the cost of the supplies it’s that they are mine, my territory and the only thing that I have that belongs solely to me. They have their own and do not need mine.

It has now resulted in my hiding my washi, pens and paper. I skulk about like a pro-ninja sneaking things out of boxes and cupboards discreetly writing in my planners when the children are distracted.  Once they are in bed is when they real fun begins.

Like a child at Christmas I get everything out I want to use and spread it all over. If I could roll around in it like it was piles of cash I would,  although I’m sure my partner would have me committed. 

So there we have it. This is my Confession….and I’m sure I am not alone:)
