Task it TuesdayWelcome to Task It Tuesday! created by the Awesome The Geeky Blogger

Hosted by Michelle at Because Reading is better than real life!

What is Task It Tuesday? It is where every week I list a task or tasks that I would like to accomplish on my blog or in Real Life before next Tuesday. It can be big or small but the goal is to get something done that will make my blog/reading life/challenges run smoother, faster, or more efficient and/or get those simple or complex tasks done in my real life. I will also be sharing organizing tips and linking with posts from bloggers that have some great tips and tricks for keeping you and your blog/real life organized.


I finally finished it, I am super excited with how it came out, it does need a tweak or two now that I have used it but I can get by with what I have for now. What am I talking about? Well, my new Notebook for organizing all my books. I love writing stuff down and find it much easier that way. I love technology but I am a pen and paper girl and I think I always will be.

My new notebook I made.

I am actually thinking of making a few more things and maybe open a shop on Etsy with stuff people can download and use for organizing. I will be looking into that when I get back from vacation.

Speaking of vacation, I will have a post for that week but I wont be doing anything since I will be MIA that week.

I have lots of tasks to complete but I really want to start getting my books into the new notebook and even finishing the 3 reviews I have left. Then I want to work on some other posts. I have a lot to do but I plan to take it one day at a time.

  1. I’m a pen and paper kind of person too. I have tried so many times to do spreadsheets online but I just forget they are there. I have to have something in front of me. I love your notebook and I want one…lol. 🙂 Get that store going. 🙂

  2. That notebook looks amazing! I had a reading journal once that had a similar layout. I found it at a bookstore. I think I wrote in it just a couple of times before I gave up. This is was WAY before I started blogging so I didn’t see much of a point. Now I wish I still had it!!

    • Staycations are awesome, I haven’t had one in a very long time. I hope you are able to finish it, that’s big job 🙂

  3. Oh that’s a great idea to start an etsy shop with these kind of things! I am sure lots of bloggers would like a book like that to keep track of the books they read. The notebook for books looks great and really handy too! I usually prefer online as my handwriting is so bad, but there is something about writing things down, that’s just different than typing and I still write things by hand as well.
