Planner Communities Online

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Today, I wanted to discuss the growing population of the planner community. Since, I starting sharing my planner back in 2013, the amount of people who now use a planner has dramatically increased. With that has been a growth of groups forming, to specific planner brands, those who decorate their planner, those who use their planner for journaling, and much more.

It seems like every week I am joining a new group on Facebook. I am happy to see how diverse the planner community has gotten, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming. There has been quite a number of groups that have been duplicated as well. With this comes the problem of cross posting information, and seeing the same information in various groups that you belong to. Unfortunately, you may also see some competition, and even drama. So, it's important to find a group that best fits you. There are plenty to choose from, as you will see.

I am hoping to help those of you who are maybe just starting…
