It's that time again. 'Blog of the Week' looks at a different Filofax blog each week in the words of the owner. Some you may know already, whilst others may be new to you.
This week, Kanalt talks about Well Planned Life.
When did you start your blog?
December 20, 2009 (wow! I can't believe it's been that long.)
What were your reasons for starting it?
Philofaxy! Once I found this group of planner lovers, I was completely hooked. And while it was great to read and comment on the posts there, I had so much more to say about my own planner and organizational adventures. I'm a huge organizational nerd!
Which post has enjoyed the most pageviews?
Before checking, I would have said The Culture of Philofaxy at 1000 views. But the top pageview is still Happiness Binder: The Big Reveal with 1098 views.
Which post is the one you’re most proud of?
I would have to say The Culture of Philofaxy. I wrote it just because I had been thinking about it and wanted to put it out there. I didn't expect the huge response it got (both in comments and Twitter buzz). I think it just resonated with people, put into words how most people feel about the community, which just proves the Philofaxy-as-a-Subculture point. I was very overwhelmed by the response I got from that post. And that is why I will never find a better online community to be a part of!
What has surprised you since you started blogging?
What has surprised me the most of how many people follow my blog. As of today, I have 91 public followers, though I would like to think there are more who aren't registered with my blog. Who knew that so many people would be interested in what I have to say, especially since it's about planners and organizing. many of my friends and family just laugh at my obsession, so I didn't think I'd attract as many people as I have. Thank you to each and every one of my readers! I love blogging and without them, there would be no point.
In one sentence, how would you describe your blog to a Filofax user who hadn’t seen it?
It started as a place to talk about my planner obsession and grew from there - I talk about anything and everything, but mostly about planners and organizing.
Finally, what one piece of advice would you offer to other Filofax bloggers, based on your own experience?
Have fun with it! Yes, we really do get tips and tricks from each other. But humor with our planners goes a long, long way, especially with me. You can see what I mean here.
My thanks to Kanalt for participating.
