Lettuce see what I saved this week, shall we?
First up, we have this post on Four Honest as Fuck Questions You Need to Ask Yourself. There are a lot of planners floating around that are a little, hmmm, how can I put this delicately? A little too kumbaya for my tastes. Some people thrive on answering soul deep questions at the end of every week and taking those answers and revitalizing themselves or their work or whatever. I am not one of those people. However. I do think we all can benefit from answering some probably uncomfortable questions from time to time. There’s no growth without some growing pains, right?
Next up we have this glorious, glorious notebook. I fell in love with the original Rhodia, but one thing I didn’t like was the plain, boring, black cover. I’m not sure if it’s obvious or not, but I’m a color girl. Bright colors, especially, make me happy. And when I’m happy I’m an all around more awesome person. So when I saw these new options, I about wet myself. The only downfall? They come in lined only. That means I have to choose between my precious dot grid or this glorious color. WHY, GOD, WHY?
And lastly, I saved a program that I didn’t even know existed. One of the ladies in my planning group on FB shared a tip on how to organize that mass of chaos known as your brain upon returning from a conference. The thing I liked most about Boomerang is that you can schedule emails to go to yourself at any point in the future. Mind = blown. Like, let’s say you went to a promo panel at a conference and took some awesome notes. And you happen to know when you or your publisher are planning a sale on one of your titles. You type up those notes in an email, schedule it to be delivered around the time of the sale, and then BOOM, out of your head.
Are you noticing a pattern yet with my Friday Round-up? I tend to save a lot of things that have to do with organization, production, and/or planning. But don’t get too comfortable just yet. I might go super crazy next week and save something along the lines of the create your own shoes site that ruined my life made me so happy. Pop back in and see!
