The amount of ideas, how-to’s and inspiration whirling around in my head is ready to jump out.

Why I started my blog
Since I started my business, many of my friends have asked me “Why don’t you start a blog?!” and up until a few months ago did I truly know what a “blog” was. I never clicked on blog links, I never understood WHY people wrote blogs, I just thought it was a waste of time to even look into it. WRONG I WAS. After doing much research and making friends with a few bloggers along the way, who have been so kind to offer much support and advice, I have become completely consumed with inspiration to start a blog for Horderly. I have finally realized all of the benefits that blogging can bring.

What you will be seeing more of in my posts
Organization will obviously be the main topic of my blog, but get ready because you will be seeing much more of the face behind Horderly (me), and a mixture of lifestyle including my favorite fashion finds, products, and other small businesses. Writing has never been a strong suite of mine and I will tell you, I am no expert on any of this. I may be a “perfectionist” but I am nowhere near perfect. I figure it will be a lot of trial and error so please bear with me on any grammar/spelling mistakes (disclaimer – I like to talk with many dashes and parentheses) and please feel free to always share your advice and communicate with me along the way! I hope to inspire you because truthfully, you all inspire me and I am SO looking forward to bringing you a more organized way of living.
After being inspired to start my blog, I wanted to act fast. This is not a fast task people. Not only did I want to start a blog, but after having my business for a year and a half now, I was ready to totally revamp my brand and website which I initially created on my own. Creating a website and/or blog is WORK and if you’re looking for that ideal web designer – be prepare to be on a waiting list (and pay a fortune). However, that did not happen to me. I was blessed to find the exact web designer I needed which I am excited to share with you a little bit about, Branded By Britt.

I trusted Brittney from the moment of first email. I reached out to her in a rush and she made sure to make the time to give me exactly what I was looking for, and she sure did! Now, I don’t know if Brittney had ever worked for a “Professional Organizer” before but I must say, it could not have been easy! Being a Professional Organizer naturally comes with a side of OCD and perfectionism (yes, I grew up this way) and she accommodated every single question, request, and tiny little detail in a timely and more than professional manner. The way she works is very organized (LOVE) and she keeps you up to date throughout the entire process. Her intelligence on web design is incredible and you can tell right away that she has a true passion for what she does. Branded By Britt not only offers branding and web design but WordPress support thereafter for those of you, like me, that have trouble when it comes to, well…all tech. To say the least, Britt has created the timeless brand and website that I was looking for and I couldn’t ask for anything more! THANK YOU BRITTNEY
There are several ways to start your downloads with Internet Download Manager.
1) IDM monitors clicks in Internet Explorer, MSN Explorer, AOL, Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, and many other browsers. This method is the easiest one. If you click on a download link in Internet Explorer or in another browser IDM will take over and accelerate this download. In this case you don't need to do anything special, just browse the Internet as you usually do. IDM takes over a download from Internet Explorer if its type matches the list of types/extensions. The list of file types/extensions to download with IDM can be edited in Options->General. If IDM has taken over a download, it shows the following dialog
If you click on Download Later button, URL (web address) will be added to the list of downloads, but the download process doesn't start. If you click on Start Download button, IDM will start downloading the file immediately. IDM lets you associate your downloads with IDM categories. IDM suggests the category and the default download directory according to file type. You may edit categories, delete and add new categories in the main IDM window. If you want to see the contents of a zip file before downloading, you may click on Preview button.
IDM will take over any download if you hold down the CTRL key while clicking its download link in Internet Explorer. (you should check 'Use CTRL key with IE click monitoring' box in 'IDM Options->General').
If you hold down the ALT key while clicking on a download link in IE, IDM will not take over the download and let Internet Explorer download the file. (you should check 'Use ALT key with IE click monitoring' box in 'IDM Options->General')
If you don't want IDM to take over any downloads from a browser, turn off the browser integration in IDM options. After turning off or on the browser integration in 'IDM Options->General', don't forget to restart the browser.
Remember if Internet Download Manager had problems downloading file, you should press Alt while clicking on a link to let the browser process the download.
If you click on OK button, IDM will start downloading. Njhsmrs. land 7th grade ela standards.
This way of downloading files is useful if IDM couldn't take over the download automatically. Just pick this item to start downloading a link with IDM. You may also select a text in Internet Explorer, and pick 'Download with IDM' to add all links in the selected text to IDM.
If you want to hide this window simply close it. Later you can pick 'Url-> Show drop target' from the main menu (or tray menu) if you want this window to appear again.
