In case you haven’t seen my announcements on my social media since January, I’ve decided to rebrand this blog. So, if you were visiting therollercoasterride.com and ended up here at mommyplannerista.com, don’t worry! They’re one and the same. Everything on Roller Coaster Ride is being redirected to the new domain for Mommy Plannerista.
So, why the rebrand?
Well, this is something I’ve been wanting to do for the past two years. I just didn’t get around to it until now because I got pregnant with Baby # 4. Then I gave birth. So, of course, my life revolved around those things for the past couple of years. But when 2018 rolled around I just knew that it was now or never.
Why did I want to rebrand? I had two reasons. One, because I was bored with this blog, and two, I wanted to set my blog apart from the other mommy blogs. But first, I needed to think about what sets me apart. You would probably think it would be easy but it wasn’t.
It was only last December when everything became clearer to me. Over the last two years, I have become quite known for all my planner-related posts on Instragram. I even have a separate Instagram account, @PlanningForPleasure (now @MommyPlannerista), for my planner obsession. Because of those posts, people have been coming to me, asking me for tips on which planners to buy and where to buy them. Some were interested in the planner stickers that I’ve been known to post a lot as well. So, I became a go-to person for all things planner-related.
Born to Plan
I realized this is what makes me “ME”. I’ve been using planners since high school. I can’t live without one. It just makes me function better. I also LOVE planning. I guess you can say I was born to plan. I’ve been the designated planner in the family while growing up. I’ve also worked as an Events Planner, Project Planner, and Party Planner in the past. I’m a certified Plannerista!
Of course, when I eventually had my own family and became a mom, I became the designated planner again. As a mom, there are a lot of things that I need to plan for and organize, especially with four kids and no household help. Add to that the fact that I also work from home. If I didn’t plan, I would go crazy and nothing will get done!
So, that’s basically my life right now – I’m a Mommy Plannerista.
Mommy Plannerista – The Blog
The rebranding does not stop at changing the blog name and the URL though. While Mommy Plannerista will still be a family lifestyle blog, I intend to write more about planning and how I use planners to organize my life as a mom. I am hoping that this will be helpful to a lot of moms out there who are struggling to keep things together as they go about their daily lives.
So, you can expect to see more planner-related videos, posted on my YouTube channel and cross posted here. I’ll be sharing tips on how I plan different things and the tools I use in doing so. (Please take note that I’ve also updated my social media handles. Check them out by clicking found on my sidebar or at footer).
Of course, if you guys have any planning-related questions for me or if you want to suggest any topics for me to discuss, please let me know. I’m always open to suggestions!
So, today (on the eve of my birthday, no less!), I’m officially launching Mommy Plannerista to the world! I hope you guys continue to support my blog the way you have over the last 7 years. I’m super excited to start sharing more about my planning journey with you!
Belated happy birthday and congrats on your “Rebranding”. Changes is inevitable so we need to adapt and change for the better. I’m also changing a lot of things on my blog. I have deleted a lot of posts and I updated some posts, it takes a lot of work sana matapos ko soon. 🙂
Glad that you rebranded and now you know your niche! Though I would suggest that you start creating your own branding image / logo to make it your own. A great logo can go a long way to the readers 🙂 Let me know how can I help!
Your new name suits you Mommy. Ikaw talaga ang naiisip ko when it is about planners and stickers! Goodluck and looking forward to more planner posts! 🙂
Congratulations on your rebranding. Finally, I have a co-mommy blogger who loves planning. I would love to hear more from you. Goodluck!
Congratulations! I actually feel excited when bloggers take a huge leap of faith and just rebrand. I did it over two years ago, afraid that I would lose everything I had worked for in my old blog, and now I’m happy that I just took the leap. More power to your blog!
Before the re-branding, I am following your planner blog na, Janice. Cute na cute ako sa planner mo, stickers and pens. Nakaka goodvibes sa IG. More power to your new blog!
I like the new name of your blog, it speaks a lot of who you are. I also like to plan and use planners though I usually use what our church is giving us yearly. Will surely check your posts about planners to see what will fit my needs 🙂
I’m glad that you found your niche. Yes, ikaw ang nag inspire sa’kin to do bullet planning. Pero I don’t have the time to design my planner (like yours), puro sulat lang. But that’s okay ’cause it works for me naman 🙂
The mommy planerista is so bagay to you. I have seen your planners and how you carefully make it so beautiful. It seems you did them effortlessly. Nway, congratulations.
Congrats on this new milestone 🙂
Congrats! Excited to read more about your planner stories.
I follow your @planningforpleasure and I’m soo jealous of your planner. Hehehe. Congrats on the rebranding. I think the name suits you well 🙂
I love the rebranded name compared with the old one. This one sounds energetic and ready to face the world, head-on. Congratulations!
Love the new brand! I’m into journaling, not planning. Di ko kaya yang everyday planning and organizing haha. 🙂
I starred at that cutesy planner for minutes… Congrats mumshie and God Bless 🙂
Oh congrats sis, your new name seems cute and parang napaka organize mo na tao 😉 hehehe! I love your planners at pinusuan ko pa yong mga post mo sa IG, kaya pala sabi ko ikaw din si roller coaster ride eh.
Goodluck on the new name sis! I saw one of your YT videos and ang cute ng mga planners mu! Sana ganyan din ako kaorganize. Hehehe
I admire your handwriting and your creativity. Congrats, I’m sure this will be another success for you!
Congratulations on the rebrand! I love planning and organizing, too but with a dash of spontaneity for a little excitement. ❤️
