This past year sure has flown by quickly, hasn’t it?
The New Year is literally right around the corner, but before we close the calendars on 2013, it’s time to do some end-of-year reflections.
I’ve always found it helpful to do year-end reviews to see where I’ve come from and to get a better idea of where I’m going in future.
Today I’ll be doing a recap of all the different events and happenings here on The Order Expert and across the web in 2013.
Before we begin with this year’s recap, I would like to send a big thank you out to all of my followers, readers, commenters, subscribers and visitors to the site.
I’m so thankful to be a part of your life and to be able to help you balance your life. Thank you for reading and for your continued support, it means a lot to me. Remember…if there’s ever a subject or topic you’d like me to cover in future posts, please feel free to send me a note!
Okay, without further ado, let’s take a look at what happened in 2013…
The Order Expert’s 2013 Year-End Review
I continued my series of guest posts on the non-profit women’s health site, HealthyWomen.org, including such posts as 10 Ways to Manage Your Time…Healthfully and Give Your Medicine Cabinet a Makeover. Click this link to see all of my posts on the site.
Alas, a quiet month…
I launched my brand new organizing, time management and productivity consulting site: www.rashelleisip.com where I offer coaching services for individuals and small businesses.
The Order Expert celebrated it’s second birthday on April 30th 2013. Yep, that was two whole years of blogging already gone in a flash. I still can’t believe I’m already well into year number three!

The Order Expert reached the 400th post mark in June. Wow! Looking to get started in the blogging world yourself? The post contains 17 of my tips for writing 400 posts.
Strangely enough, another relatively quiet month…
I started guest blogging for the well-known productivity site Lifehack.org.
Since then, I’ve written a total of 10 articles for the site, including 12 Ways to Still Be Productive When You Don’t Feel Like Working and 8 Ways to be on Time for Appointments.

The Order Expert made a splash across the pond in the United Kingdom!
I landed a guest post on the site, Time Management Ninja, called “How to Stop Arriving Late to Those Nearby Appointments.” You can take a look at the article here.
Shortly after my guest post on Time Management Ninja, I was featured on FastCompany.com.
My Pinterest board, Gifts for People Who Love Order!, was selected as part of Pinterest’s very first-annual holiday gift giving guide. You can check out all of my great order-based gift picks here.
I announced The Order Expert’s very first January 2014 TMPO Challenge. Every day for the month of January I’m featuring a series of small time management, productivity and organizing tasks that can be done in less than fifteen minutes. Visit The Order Expert’s Facebook page starting on January 1st to join in the challenge. It’s absolutely free!
Phew, that sure was a lot of goings-on, wasn’t it? I was quite surprised to see just how much had happened in the past year once I started to take a hard look at the calendar.
I am very much looking forward to build on the momentum from 2013 and to continue to make great strides for The Order Expert in 2014 and beyond. There will be lots of new surprises in the New Year. Stick around, the best is yet to come!
Thanks again for reading The Order Expert. I wish you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy New Year.
Be safe, enjoy your celebrations and I’ll see you in 2014!
Yours in order,
