      The holidays are overwhelming for anyone under a pile of errands, family traditions, social obligations, and busy work schedules. Step back for a minute to recollect what you have accomplished this year, and instill this sense of success in the commitment driven mind you have that next year is more organized. Brought to you by Kate Matsudaira, a successfully experienced technology leader, The Spark Notebook redefines the personalized planner experience through organizational tools that will allow you to take control of your own future ahead. This notebook draws closer attention to the important details than a summary of your daily routine from ordinary notebooks. According to Kate, The Spark Notebook allows you to utilize your time efficiently and effectively with these layouts:

  • Yearly Goals & Mission
  • Yearly Theme
  • Monthly Overview (6 months)
  • Monthly Goals (one for each month)
  • 30 Day Challenge (one for each month)
  • Weekly Inspiration – a quote and question to make each week awesome
  • Weekly Goals – prioritize and strategize so all of your work matters
  • Weekly Overview – designed for time blocking to help you make the most of every single day
  • Project Planner – because all great things in life start with a good plan
  • Meeting Notes – make the most of all your face-to-face meetings with great notes
  • Lots of lined pages for all of your great insights
  • A blank layout for the perforated pages – since some ideas are meant to be shared

You will also experience a product made in the USA., provides over 200 pages for a new you, 20 perforated pages that will allow sharing all your inspiration with others, two page markers to stay focused after you take a break, and date-free calendars. Now, the cherry on top is high quality, ink-proof, acid-free paper to prevent all those frustrating times when ink bleeds through the pages.  Imagine your life in a 5.75″ x 8.25″ sized notebook designed to allow you to think outside the ordinary planner. Join the 3,385 other backers in this successful Kickstarter project to have your very own Spark Notebook! You deserve a chance to breathe, stay focused, and committed. You deserve to spark up your own busy schedule with a Spark Notebook.

Your week looks rough ahead. You have so much to do, but not enough space to write it all down in an ordinary notebook. The Spark Notebook has the essential convenience that you have waited for this whole time. Jot a weekly goal down as you work on the others, and award yourself at the end of every week. This notebook guides everyone for success, and room for change. If you have failed to meet your weekly goals, reflect on what you could not accomplish, and celebrate for what you have done. Give yourself credit for the time, effort, and trial of weekly priorities. Follow up the following week with the same goals. Stay committed one day at a time, and focus on a week of success. One week of success only requires four trials, and then you have the whole month defeated by your perseverance.  The outlook of your week defines how you want to carry out your goals. You can take the space needed for priorities. Take the next step to the Spark Notebook with the weekly outlook feature. There is enough room to work out your own personalized routine through time blocking.

Express Thy Heart, Thou Hast Change; Satisfying Follower Demand

Hey everyone,

How are you? I hope you are all doing great! Are you working hard on your New Year’s resolutions? The first week is almost here! Congratulations! If you have given up already or didn’t bother to start, try again next week! No, seriously. If you didn’t make any changes this year, continue living life to the fullest one heart beat at a time!

I am just giving you an update on the recent changes on my page. I have added a form page right underneath my About Me  tab. If you are not comfortable sending me a message through my Facebook  page, please use this form instead.

Your real name is not really required, but you should make something up. Make me laugh, please?

According to Anita Man, she is about to post a Blog Post Suggestion. If she scrolled down any further, she would also have the options of Questions / Concerns, Constructive Criticism, or Blog Promotion. Now, let me explain all of this to you.

Blog Post Suggestions (Default)

Please understand that this is a default option. It will submit as this type of submission for your submission if you do not change it. If you are willing to inspire me with a question for a blog post, submit it as a Blog Post Suggestion. Not as a Questions / Concerns submission.

Questions / Concerns Submissions 

Select this choice for serious questions or concerns. Is there a question that is not intended for a blog post? Submit it here. Do you have a concern about a link that isn’t working? Submit it here. Do you have any questions about my life? Submit it here. Do you want to know more about my personal life, e.g. dating, feel free to ask here. Everything that confuses you, makes you wonder, or makes you frustrated about my blog goes here. Simple? Good.

Constructive Criticism

Now, how simple can this be? Provide reasonable feedback to me. Don’t waste your time, and don’t waste mine. Did I have a grammatical error in a blog post? Oh, my bad! Just tell me. Was a post offensive? Maybe it was boring, and I wasn’t representing myself well? Just tell me. As long as your honest, let me know. I am here for quality, not quantity. I might have over 1,000 followers, but I really need 5 loyal followers to tell me what needs improvement. This is the same thing about liking my articles, or anyone else for that matter. If you leave constructive comments, you will engage more within my hopeless romantic community of followers.

Blog Promotion (Description of Blog Required)

My goal for 2013 is to organize a blog directory on my page because I know my page will never have everything on it. So, what do I need from you? An effective blog description! What does that entail? Well, let me give you a few examples:

Bad:

“My blog needs followers! I am new here! Promo?”


Poor:

“My blog is about things I like and things I don’t like. People will also like the things I like, and don’t like.”

OK:

“My blog is about boys, relationships, kittens, and inspirational quotes.”

Good:

“I have a counselling blog for depression. I offer advice to everyone who is sad and ready to give up on life. I love helping people out of those difficult times, and I would be honored for a promotion on your blog to encourage others to do the same.”

Great: 

“My blog, Just Weight & See, is my official progress for weight loss and a healthier diet throughout the year of 2013. I will upload weekly before and after pictures, while submitting a daily post about my meals throughout the day. I will encourage recipes, strategies, and words of encouragement to help motivate others as well.”

If you did not read my post, “One Step Forward; A Brief Discussion on Controversial Resolutions for 2013,” then just take this following message with you throughout 2013:

It’s your life. Change starts now! Just breathe, keep pushing through every day, and understand that you do have support at WordPress and in your local area. Feel free to ask around.

Now, here is the promotional proposal: 

If you have any weight loss blogs, please refer me to them at the comment section below. If you have any organizational blogs, with tips to organize and succeed, let me know those links as well. Are you a member of your own Frugal Anonymous group? Send me an invite to your next meeting! I will make a page to acknowledge these inspirational people.

WordPress community, let’s make a change today, tomorrow, and forever – together.
