Farewell, but definitely not Goodbye

When I first heard about blogging, I didn’t see the point, so I launched From the Desk of Janet Barclay just to find out what the fuss was all about. Little did I know where that one step would lead me – once I got started, I just couldn’t stop!

This blog has gone through many transitions since 2006, in its design, in its content, and in my frequency of posting, and I’ve enjoyed every step of the way. However, as L. Frank Baum said in The Marvelous Land of Oz:

Everything has to come to an end, sometime.

Many of my posts were time-sensitive, and are no longer relevant. Those that are still of value will be updated (if necessary) and republished on one of my other blogs, which I’ve listed below. I do hope you’ll take a moment to subscribe to those that match your interests, and to connect with me on one or more social media sites. Keep in mind that if you send me an invitation and I don’t know who you are, I may not accept it, so please take a moment to introduce yourself. (That’s a good practice, no matter who you’re connecting with.)

Thank you so much for being part of my blogging journey!

rssYour Organizing Business

Every week I blog about success strategies for professional organizers – including marketing, business practices, working with clients, and other topics – many of which apply to other businesses as well.

Here I also host the very popular Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, where organizers from around the world share links to their posts on selected topics.

This is the official blog for my business, Organized Assistant®.

rssOrganized Bloggers

Organized Bloggers is a community blog I created for members of the organizing industry to share their expertise with the general public, free of charge.

rssGolden Horseshoe Virtual Assistants Group

In 2008 I established a networking group to allow local VAs to get together to share ideas, build relationships, and support one another in our businesses.

Our blog provides helpful information for entrepreneurs interested in working with a virtual assistant, established virtual assistants wishing to grow their businesses, and individuals interested in becoming a virtual assistant.

rssIntrovert Retreat

Introversion isn’t shyness. It’s not anti-social. It’s not entirely a need to be alone. Introversion is a personality trait (defined by C. G. Jung) where we prefer to relate to the world by first taking it “inward.” Our energy comes from within. Extraverts, on the other hand, are energized by direct interaction with the world, such as socializing.

Introvert Retreat is a must-read, whether you are clearly introverted, have an introverted tendency or outlook, or want a better understanding of friends and loved ones who have these qualities.
