Prior to choosing my first planner, I did some research. I found blogs showing me the wonderful array of planner available and the incredible things people do with them. Many of these I still follow and enjoy, there are some talented people on the internet. They've always been talented, but now technology has put me in touch with them.
I knew Filofaxes had been sold for years, let's face it shops wouldn't stock them if they didn't sell them, but reading around on the internet, sites like Philofaxy had me reading reliable advice from people who had been planning for years. Indeed the bloggers I admire have at least two or three years on me.
There's a lot, and I mean a lot, of beautiful stuff going on in the thriving planner community but I don't think there's the revolution as the media would paint it. People are just sitting up and paying attention perhaps? Either way one things for sure, I'm happy to be a planner nerd.
