  1. Jennifer, I hope you monetize your blog and YouTube. The quality of your posts, photos, and videos is top notch. You should get paid to do these things!

  2. Love your blog!! I second Lori's comments above as well. You rock!

  3. Do you have a post on beginner essentials? I would love to see a list of what I should buy with my first filofax. I'm super excited to get one but i'm a bit overwhelmed seeing peoples finished weekly pages!

  4. Can you do a video on how you print your inserts?

  5. Hi Jennifer, I enjoyed your video on setting up for 2014. I have been using a calendar on my computer for awhile now, but it does not seem adequate. I am trying to find a good balance between digital and handwritten. Do you use any kind of digital calendar (phone or computer) or do you strictly use a Filofax?
