Get Organized With This Online Tool

Hey, friends! Hope you are staying warm and having a great weekend! Happy New Year to you all!

Today I wanted to share with you a really neat (and FREE) resource that I came across a while back. It’s a tool called Trello, and you can check it out here.

To put it in short terms, Trello is a free, online to-do list, organizing tool, planner, checklist, collaborating tool, etc. There are a ton of ways to customize it, and it’s a great place to organize your thoughts, ideas, pics, business schedules, blog post lists, and more.

You can also invite certain members to your “boards,” which is super helpful if you’re working with others on business. Only you and your members will be able to access these boards and customize them.

You can also go the private route and have a personal page with all your boards. For example, my page is a “team” page, but I keep it private and only I can access and customize my boards.

To give you an idea of what kinds of stuff you can use it for, here are a couple boards I have right now.

  1. A list/catch-all of resources and tools I like to have for easy access or to remember.
  2. A School Schedule where I list times and what needs to be accomplished in that time frame
  3. A Cleaning Routine
  4. A Business Board where I keep blog post ideas, inspiration, etc.

What makes the process easier is being able to (in each board,) create a list and then create a “card” beneath which is like an item under a list. For example, I created a board called “Business.” I then created lists within this board such as “Things to work on,” “To-do”, or something like that. Then, within these lists, I created “cards,” such as “blog about my favorite resource,” “design graphic for Pinterest,” or something like that.

Does that make any sense? I hope I’ve made myself clear. To give you a better understanding of what this resource is, check out this video. It may help you get an even better idea of what Trello is. (This is NOT me… but this is a great Youtuber who you should definitely check out!) 🙂 🙂 🙂

Cool, huh? The New Year has just begun, so now is the perfect time to try out Trello as many of try to get organized.

And there you have it! Trello is definitely a great resource which I highly recommend you check out. Have you tried Trello or love another free business/blog tool? Be sure to comment below and let me know. I’m always on the lookout for great (and free!) tools. 🙂

get organized with this free tool! (1)

Have a great day!

5 Studying Tips For Busy Students

Hello, hello! I’m so glad you stopped by today. Today I wanted to share with you some ways to help improve your study time. Wherever you work, whether at school, at home (home school!), at the library, at college, or anywhere else you might be working on stuff.

It often feels like it’s a never-ending cycle of papers, problems, and reading. The feeling of waking up and doing the same thing over and over again. However, I wanted to share with you some ways to look at your school work, as well as do it, in a manner that encourages a little more enjoyment. After all, as students right now, we are completing this kind of work five days a week (or more,) so why not try and spice it up?

I know it’s not gonna be all sunshine rainbow. Trust me, some days are loooooong,:) but I wanted to share this post hoping that these tips might help brighten up your school routine. I hope you enjoy!

5 Study Tips

1. The reason I recommend only listening to background music is that it is easy to get distracted when lyrics are playing through the headphones. If you are listening to “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” (sorry…it’s almost Christmas, 🙂 but you are reading a history lesson on World War II, how well do you think you are going to remember what you just read after? Instead, I often enjoy listening to upbeat music without lyrics like this playlist on Youtube which I enjoy listening to. The upbeat rhythm keeps me moving at a good pace, and work gets done. Success!

2. Oh yes! I believe that delicious drink, be it coffee, tea, smoothie, milkshake, etc., has some magic in it. I feel like when you are sitting to do work, drinking something yummy makes you feel like you’re at a cafe in a pretty downtown city. I know I sound strange, but whatever you drinks are doing to help us get through our school work, thank a bunch.

3. You know how so many people are creating online courses these days? Do you wish some days that YOU could be the teacher instead of being the student? Well, say hello to the inner teacher inside of you! It’s actually pretty fun to pretend you are teaching an academic subject on a course for someone or that you are in the classroom. Try it!

4. This part is especially fun. This is the time to listen to your favorite song WITH lyrics, grab a drink re-fill, dance, or do whatever makes you happy. Just try to keep it to ten minutes or under so that you’ll still get your work done early.

5. The best part? Rewarding yourself. Do this after you finish your last subject and have checked it off. Some days it might be sitting to watch a show, other days it could be taking a walk with friends. Maybe you’ll decide to go thrift shopping or get your nails done! Whatever the reward, pick it before you work so that you have it to look forward to when you’re done!

There you have it, people! Five tips for the busy student. Now do a happy dance!

The Five Tips:

  1. Listen to BACKGROUND music.
  2. Drink something yummy.
  3. Pretend to teach the subject to someone (or a class).
  4. Take SHORT breaks and do something fun.
  5. Reward yourself.

  I truly hope you found this motivational, inspiring, and helpful. If you did, I would love if you’d leave a comment below and let me know. Or, if you have your own tip, feel free to leave that in the comment section as well! I can always fit new tips into my brain. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

May Update + Some Goals

Hey, hey! So glad you’re reading this post today! You may have seen the post I did here about planning some stuff out for my blog, but I’m gonna admit, I didn’t stick to what I was hoping for 😦 Luckily, every day is another chance, so I’m gonna try again. When you fall down, the best thing to do is eat chocolate cake and start again. I mean, am I right or am I right? 🙂 It may not be perfect, but I’m excited to see how it goes this time around.

As you’ll notice if you’ve followed this blog for a bit, I gave my blog design a little make-over. I changed to the Nucleare theme (free), updated my header and sidebars a bit, as well as adding a contact page and a couple new categories. Yay! It was fun, and I enjoyed changing the look a little bit.

I created my header on Canva, which I love:), and if you want to learn more about this awesome graphic design tool, check out my post on that here!

I’m still a Pinterest addict, consistently posting whatever catches my eye, so feel free to check out what I’m loving on my boards here!

Okay…now onto some goals.

  1.  I would like to see if I can reach 100 followers really soon (by next month?) I don’t know if that is too much to expect, but I’m really excited about trying to increase my followers. We’ll see how it goes…I would love to meet you if I haven’t already! 😉
  2. Share some freebies! I would love to start doing this on the blog, so feel free to let me know of some ideas if you have any!
  3. Post once a week on Wednesday. I may try to increase or post an extra one if I have time, but with the other things I have going on right now, I figured this was a good start. Consistency is key, right? It may be small, but at least it’s consistent. 🙂

I’m sure there’s more I could share, but I wanted to give you all a little update for the month. I hope to continue doing monthly updates as well so you can start looking for those every month. 🙂

Thanks for taking the time to read this! If you have any tips, ideas, or comments for me, please feel free to let me know below! I’m excited to try being more consistent and I hope to make some progress on this blog.

What are your blogging goals or tips? Share them below…I look forward to hearing from you soon. Happy blogging!!!
