Be an Organized Blogging Babe with the Bubble Planner
One thing I have learned about blogging in the past year is that most bloggers (including myself) have a million ideas running through their heads at all times and they are usually juggling a family, babies, work at home or work outside the home jobs, and running a successful household, in addition to running a successful blog. How in the world do all of these women (and men) keep track of their ideas, projects, jobs, daily life activities, birthdays, deadlines…without dropping a ball somewhere?!!
Bubble Planner | Attention Deficit Destroyer
Discover what thousands of people already know – Bubble Maps help you make better decisions with the time you have.
When you look at my desk at work, you will see two sticky notes on a file cabinet, three on my computer screen, a few on the wall of my cubicle, and then other various notes spread around. I have a spiral notebook that I jot down notes and then I have two sets of tray files where I put various paperwork so I remember to look back at it. This is how my brain works!!
Most day planners work like a file cabinet. You write items down in a list and store that list. Often, you forget about the list.
The office where I work gives us a calendar every year and at the beginning of the year, you will see me write things down. After a few weeks, I store the calendar somewhere and forget to keep opening it. What good does that do me?! I have also tried day planners and list of “things to do” and very little seems to work for me. I tend to think all over the place…oh, that makes me think of something…rabbit trail…what was I doing again?!
By laying out your tasks like sticky notes on your desk, you tap into the hidden power of your short-term memory. Aristotle called this affinity for remembering things by location the Method of Loci.
With all of the sticky notes everywhere, it is difficult to remember everything when I am on the go. Sometimes I am at work and think of a blogging goal or I may be at home and remember a deadline or idea for work. With the Bubble Planner in my bag at all times, I have the power of sticky notes at my fingertips without the mess and the chance of a sticky note being lost.
The Bubble Planner caught my eye because it was advertising as a left-handed planner, but it is so much more!! The bubble way of thinking is just right for me as I’m juggling a full time work outside the home job, a busy 4 year old who is starting to participate in activities, and a blog – called GoingCrazy!! I need something to reign in my crazy brain and keep all of my thoughts in one place.
I have really enjoyed getting to know the Bubble Planner and jotting down ideas and deadlines, goals and plans, and having it all at my fingertips. While I am not going to make it to BlogHer12, I am planning to attend the Houston Blogger Symposium in September and I am definitely going to have my Bubble Planner by my side.

I love it, very organized!
What a great way to plan!
organize me baby..this is a great gift idea
This is a very unique way of doing things and I could see this not only good for a busy young family but also for elderly or disabled since it is much more visual!
A very handy tool to stay organized “at-a-glance”!
What a simple and cool way to keep organized.
Very clever and different!
This is perfect for people who think visually–what a great idea!
Love it! Unique.
Looks awesome….this is def different than any other planners I’ve ever used…maybe this can replace my daytimer lol
This is a great idea. Love it. I need this…
I have never seen a planner like this. Maybe my problem why nothing works for me is because i have the wrong planner. I like how it has the inspiration and it works on the visual aspect on an individual. It looks like something I would enjoy using.
I NEED one. I home-school, just started my own business, run the household, and am working on my MA!
I’m definitely a visual person which is why I’m a list writer. I seriously write lists for EVERYTHING in my life! I’d be curious to see how this product works for me and my organizational skills.
I love it! It helps with organization and who doesn’t need that? I love it for I like to see things to help me learn. My husband could sure use this too! Thanks for the great review. I have never heard of it before.
LIKE THIS VERY GOOD!!!
i would love to be organized, anything that would help is great. this looks interesting
never seen this! wow I like this idea!
interesting concept and I also like that it opens all the way
I’m a teacher and know that bubble format aides inn memory so this would be great
Looks truly unique. I too have sticky notes all over my desk. The problem is that sometimes I misplace them… or put them in a pocket and they in up in the wash!
This is different, but it looks like a fun way to stay organized.
Visually planning my day might drive me more crazy but I’d love to think outside of the box and give it a go
Oh I could so use one of these. I don’t have sticky notes, I have outlook reminders which only work if I am near the internet.
I love to be organized, but sometimes I am scatterbrained because I am trying to do so many things at once. I’ll put the time on the timer at the oiven but forget to put it on – which can be dangerous
I would love to get organized with a Bubble Planner
My husband is a very visual person and I think this would be very helpful for him
This is a very unusual planner. I like the concept.
interesting planner, back to basics i assume. haha
LOL – makes me think of those standardized tests we took in school where you had to fill in the scantron sheet!
Haha!! I hadn’t thought about that, but yeah I guess so!
Family could really use this
Love that this product was well-thought-out!
This is very cool! I could definitely use this!
I think I may have a bubble planner somewhere. Haha! It’s a neat planner but I am extremely picky about the one I actually use.
My mind is always on overdrive and this would be an excellent tool for me to get my thoughts organized. Ideas come at the strangest time!
LOL, what a cute planner!
That’s cool!! Why did they call it a left handed planner? My daughter is left handed and this might be good for her.
You know…I think it is because it opens up all the way like a spiral notebook AND because it taps into your right brain, but it’s not real clear on the website, actually!!
