If the "bouquet of sharpened pencils" line from You've Got Mail made you smile, you might be a planner person. We have found each other through social media and bond over notebooks, pens, organizational systems, and other delightfully nerdy things.
I always felt I had an artistic streak and wanted to be a writer, but didn't think of it as way to support myself. My creativity works best as a hobby. When I found the planner community, I realized I was not alone in my ways - we use the practical tool of a planner express ourselves.
It feels good to write your thoughts down on paper. Surprisingly, it also feels good to take a photo of that paper and share it with people who will join you in celebrating that sweet pen you used! I think it's so cool that we can share ideas and motivate one another through arts and crafts. To me, that's a pretty great use of social media.
