I can’t believe January is just about over, but I also heard someone say it felt like January 74th, and I laughed and thought that sounded true too!
I started out the month on a mission to get my taxes ready to file. It hurts my brain to do those numbers, but when I’m done its the most immense relief. It’s a long story, but in order to get health insurance, I have to file my taxes early. Besides that, the only resolution I made for 2020 was to stay “organized”.
Did you make any resolutions? Are you sticking to them?
In January I set up system in Trello to help me post consistently on IG. (I also vowed to show up more on stories. I’m only a week in tho ;))
A glimpse at my categories for posting:
I’m finding that what I’ve been striving for is planning and organization. My focus is to spend a couple hours ONE day to set up 5-7 days of social media posts. That frees up time during the week to engage longer once I post, and also more time to shoot and/or edit. I’m definitely using Trello to help plan, and I love how visual it is.

My Shoots board
At some point, I may make a board to share with you, but I’m still learning, and I’m just not sure what that would be, yet.
I also use the Plann app to set up my captions and photos so I only have to go there to post and I have it on all my devices, so no matter what device I’m on, I can easily post.
Are you a planner? Do you use any online tools?
For the coming year my goal is to get more shoots done and really populate my shops with more mockups, smaller bundles, and individual photos that can be reused. I’m checking in with the “National Days” so that if I have a photo that will work for those days, I can get one out to those on my email list the month before you’ll need it.
Feel free to ask me if you have questions about Trello or Plann. I’ll help you the best I can.
Let me know if there are any special topics you’d like to see me shoot!
