I’ve found myself highlighted in two magazines recently. I failed to mention it to you because…. umm, I don’t know why. It’s a wonderful honor and awesome opportunity, but I didn’t mention it on the blog for some reason (although, I did tell you on Instagram, if you follow me).
Perhaps it’s because I have a pet peeve against braggadocios people. Oh, yes, I used the word, braggadocios. If you, your spouse, or your child brag their hearts out around me, chances are I quit listening somewhere in the first ten seconds. That said, we all have our pet peeves and maybe yours is reading about a blogger who shares that she can’t stand braggarts. In other words, I’m the first to admit I have many faults, oh yes I do!
Anyways, I digress talking about pet peeves and lack of humility. The point, I’d rather ere on the side of humble quietness than join the ranks of boastful proclamation. One of my friends recently encouraged me that sharing about a magazine feature isn’t prideful if done correctly. So, I share with a genuine heart for those of you interested and the rest of you can tune out, like I do when listening to boastfulness.
My whole article about Organizing Painful Memorabilia was published in the winter edition a few months ago in Getting Organized Magazine. They offer copies of previous issues online for a small charge if you’re looking for a specific topic, just use the search box in the upper right corner. Or, just go browse her website, it’s full of helpful info on organizing!
That was exciting and I thoroughly enjoyed working with the Getting Organized Magazine publisher, Stacey! If you haven’t already, you should consider subscribing to her quarterly magazine HERE.
Shortly after that was published, the Lifestyle Director of Parents Magazine contacted me and asked if I would share picture rights for their July 2015 issue. Naturally I said yes, who wouldn’t? Maryn was also a pleasure to work with while corresponding. She included a thoughtful note and a copy of the issue in which my parking garage is published BUT you can read the whole thing HERE online via OrgJunkie.com. Unfortunately, they didn’t include my blog name anywhere alongside the picture. I was a little disappointed since that was agreed upon initially. So, unless you read this blog, you wouldn’t know who’s the camera gal behind that picture of a kiddie parking garage. I mean, it’s my brilliant idea after all…. oh wait, there I go braggin’ my heart out! 😉
But really, I must offer gratitude again to my beautiful friend, Laura, from I’m an Organizing Junkie. You guys know I sing her praises occasionally, but neither of these two great magazines would have found me if not for being featured on Laura’s blog. She has a new(ish) team of fantastic contributors and I’m humbled she still keeps me listed there too. So many thanks once again to Laura publicly for taking a chance on hiring me long ago. I love every minute and am genuinely grateful!
P.S. If this doesn’t inspire you to go check out Getting Organized Magazine or Parents Magazine, then for peet’s sake, at least go check out I’m an Organizing Junkie!
