5 Reasons Why You Should Subscribe to the “Being A Planner” Tumblr

Being A Planner is:

1. Relevant

There are always up-to-date issues and laws being made fun of.

2. Educational

If I don’t get a joke, I google it, learn about the topic/concept/law/theory/jargon/common misconception, read the post again, laugh. And then I repeat too many times to be proud of. Seriously- I’d know nothing about TIGER if it wasn’t for this tumblr. (PS: What a terrible logo for a federal program, huh? Click the link to see.)

3. Funny

I mean, it’s Tumblr. If you find serious stuff on Tumblr that’s not at least entertaining, you’re doing it wrong.

4. Memorable/Unique

Who else makes fun of planning in such compact, bite-sized cubes of awesome? No one. That’s who.

5. If you’re a planner or planning student: it makes you take yourself less seriously and reminds us all that nobody actually knows what they’re doing in our profession 24/7. It’s a lot of guessing, tweaking, meeting-ing, editing, googling, and telling the intern to do it for you.

BONUS:

6. Subscribe-able through an RSS feed or email: Exactly how you get these posts in your inbox!

There really is no reason not to if you’re a planning groupie, planner, or planning student.
