Getting Organized - Help!

I need some help getting organized with my blog. So if anyone reading this has any suggestions - send them my way! Please, I'm begging you!

Pictures are my downfall right now. How often do you download photos? How do you label and store them on your computer? Right now I download every couple of weeks and go by month and year. But I'd like to download more often so that I can easily blog with recent photos. I want to avoid a million folders on our external harddrive. Suggestions?

Now that I have my new camera I kind of want to keep those photos seperate from the pictures taken with our point and shoot. Any suggestions for that? There will be times that we use one or the other and I want to keep them organized seperately.

I feel like I am busy and have so much I want to show you all and so much to talk about and I can't get everything organized in my head. Or on my computer. Between work, working out almost daily, researching home renovations, reading health/fitness blogs my mind is on overload!

I really want to keep this an organized and fun place. I'm not a blogger that writes about any one thing, I want to mix it up and share many aspects of my life.

My goal is to get something figured out this week. Maybe I need to designate an afternoon/evening to download photos, organize them and decide what to blog about for the next week. Does this work for anyone?



  1. Sorry it has taken me so long to post these but I forgot I had them all bookmarked on my laptop that isn't functional right now! Here are some links that I've been using as beginners tools for my SLR



    As for organizing...I have to figure out a new system too. I usually just make a new folder for each date. Then I go through and move animal stuff into their own folders, food blogs pics into a food folder, etc.

  2. so happy i found your blog. i hope you'll follow back. My name's Anna. I started my blog a little over a month ago. It's all about celebrity fashion from the point of view of an LA stylist. I grow up in the south and moved to Cali after graduating from college in Alabama. I'd love if you'd stop by to see multiple post a day on all the latest celebrity fashion news. Would love your support. xoxo
