    Wow this is a super awesome list! Thanks for sharing (and including some of my posts!). 🙂 This is going to be super helpful to a lot of people.

    Oh my gosh I love all of this knowledge! I am so going over all of these this weekend when I have more time Michelle. I can’t already tell there will be a lot of wonderful things for me to consider and try out.
    Thank you so much for doing this the whole week. It really has been informative and fun to see what everyone else does and see how they handle the pressures of reading, reviewing, and blogging and still make time for other important things.

    I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!

    What a great list of resources. I couldn’t live without my Google spreadsheet (for the macro planning) and Asana (for the micro planning). My In the Spotlight feature took of like a rocket this week so I had to add a page to my planning workbook for 2016 already.
