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 out and trying to find some great information, or maybe those of you who are looking to be more organized and not into decorating your planner, or those just looking for more inspiration for your planner. I will be listing all the groups and communities that I am aware of here. If you know of a group/community not mentioned here, please go ahead and leave a comment and I will add it to this list. (*Disclaimer - I may or may not be a member of the groups listed. )

Philofaxy - The first community I wanted to mention is one that has been around for quite some time now. It originated back in 2005! I call this site my Planner Bible, because there is such a wealth of information here. My favorite part is called Web Finds. Two times a week a round up of blog posts and videos are posted here from various blogs and YouTube channels. It's all here in one place.
Guess what! They have a Facebook Group too! Filofax for Philofaxy Fans

FiloWiki - Filofax organisers come and go. Some stick and some have been discontinued. Filofax has been around for ages. Some of us planner people, like myself, like to collect vintage ones. FiloWiki is designed to be a reference to help people searching for their perfect binder or finding more information about a certain model. Now you can research more about a specific model you've seen. Learn about what ranges there were, what colors a specific range came in, and what sizes were available.

Mostly all the groups listed below are on Facebook.com
Unless you have an account on Facebook, you cannot not access these groups.

Interested in meeting other planner lovers? Meet ups are happening all over the world!
I usually announce them here on my blog, or through all my other social media outlets on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  I am hosting another meet up soon, which is scheduled for July 5, 2015. The location is still TBD, but will most likely be around the Los Angeles area. I have some very special guests coming all the way from France. Mr. Philofaxy himself, Steve Morton and his lovely, wife.
