The Ultimate Blog Party 2014 #UBP14

Hello! Do you know what the Ultimate Blog Party is? It is like a big festival sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom where bloggers of all kinds meet and greet each other.

For those of you stopping by for the first time – Hello!

Welcome to Organized Island! I am so happy to have you here.


I am a mom of two that lives in Southern California. I started this blog when my kids were in high school as a way to share my recipes and tips with other moms. My favorite things to do are to spend time with family and friends. I believe that every day is an amazing gift and should be celebrated.

You may be wondering what you can find on Organized Island. To give you a little history, I am am one of those people who loves to make lists, check things off and keep things organized. Before I had kids, I was a productivity manager, so I am very adamant on time management. On my blog, I share things going on my island of life.

This includes (here comes the list)

  • time-saving recipes
  • crafts
  • time management
  • organizing tips
  • dining
  • travel
  • Southern California happenings

  10. Hi Raquel,
    Your blog caught my attention at the UBP14, and I am really glad I found it. As a new blogger, I have realized how important it is to be organized – in my thoughts, my ideas, and to be able to make “the most – – of every moment!” I think I can learn a lot from your blog! Even though my blog is only 3 weeks old, I am pretty fond of it and I hope you stop by!

    • Thanks for finding me Susan! Isn’t it a fun party? I appreciate you stopping by and look forward to checking out your blog!
