Exactly a year ago today I began my Instagram account an_organized_life. I longed to have an outlet to discuss and display my organizational systems, beautiful moments throughout my day, and my love of simplicity and minimalism. Little did I know after that first post, a year later I would be launching a blog.
A couple of months after I began my Instagram account the questions started coming in. First in short bursts, and then longer and more frequently. So many questions came in that I started an email address devoted just to answering them. I wanted to help as many people as possible solve their organizing problems, offer advice and help when I could, share encouragement and motivation, and share the resources that I developed.
Time rolled on and I started to get the same kinds of questions: Do you have a blog or website I can check out? Do you do this for a living? You should have a YouTube channel!
I started to take more notice of the direction that an_organized_life was heading. I started emailing the authors that had influenced me so incredibly much over the course of my life, asking them for autographed copies of their books so I could include them in give aways. I began using hands-free systems to create time lapse videos to show viewers how easy and simple it is to create beautiful, everyday objects. And with every step forward, every thousandth follower, every email I received telling me I changed someone's life, in the back of my mind I thought "I need to expand." So, after many months of preparation, tweaking, organizing and a bit of blood, sweat, and tears, I am thrilled to unveil my blog.
I hope that you find inspiration, beauty, simplicity, and a couple of laughs thrown in here. I am thrilled to be bringing you some amazing bloggers from around the web as contributors and guest's to add their own dash of inspirational content.
Thank you for your support, your encouragement, and your friendship.
Yours in momentum,
