What to expect in 2012

I’m back from my little blogging break, was enjoying some wonderful time with my little family, it will still be a little quiet for the next few weeks as the kids are on holidays, but from February I’ll be back into my blog groove!  I really enjoy writing and sharing all my tips and ideas with you, but this year I want to share YOUR stories, your ideas.  If you would like to share your story, your organised room or tips to inspire others, I would love to hear from you (details HERE).  I have a few new features this year which I hope you will enjoy:    

What to expect in 2012

  • A new iPhone app 🙂
  • Fortnightly newsletters
  • Option to have daily tasks sent to your inbox (coming soon)
  • An exciting new planner or 2
  • Guest posts, to read how other ‘housewives’ become organised.  Please enquire if you would like submit a guest post.
  • Continue the Decluttering Challenge, unfortunately we didn’t reach 52 things last year as I had so much I wanted to write about I couldn’t fit it all in, however we will continue this year and possibily extend it further than 52!!  
  • 52 organising projects 
  • Each month is dedicated to a particular theme/room and then each week will be split into particular projects in that area

My inbox

Huge apologies to those that write to me.  I want to thankyou for writing to me and please know that I appreciated each of them.  Last year I became overwhelmed with my emails, to the point that I had over 2000+ email in my inbox.  I have spent the last few weeks reading through my emails, I have read each of them, your questions, your requests but unfortunately I wasn’t able to respond to them all.  However, I have created a to-do list of requested posts and I hope to provide something on the blog to help you navigate easily to  topics you are looking for.  I have started a FAQ page and I will continually add to this.

Hi Katrina, I started reading this blog a few weeks ago and I love it. I don’t have kids but I have about four different jobs (a full-time one, plus blogging, freelance writing, going to uni, editing my novel and soon, tutoring at uni) and I have a husband who needs looking after (and a home that needs cleaning) so I need to mentally organise as well as physically organise. This blog has been a massive asset to the positive idea of organising, and I already dowbnloaded (and then customised) the meal planner and hope to get some recipes in order for when work starts next week. Anyway I just wanted to say the blog is great and I look forward to joining your readers for 2012 and to see what you have in store for us. Cheers, Sarah
