You’ve decided to host a party. Now what?
This is kind of like when I went looking for a new job in 2014 – I realized that someone moved the goalposts, and everything is online now.
If you’ve been following me for a while, Dear Reader, you know how I feel about paper; if you are a new acquaintance, let me just say I love paper – calligraphy, stickers, Washi tape, cutouts, all of it. Paper and I have had a loooooong love affair, and he is my kept man.
So what’s this about nobody doing paper invitations anymore? Y’all’re gonna make me cry.
And then I discovered Doodle.
Stop the bus. This will rock your world. Trust the Noony.
This, Dear Reader, is Doodle. It’s got a free version, thank the powers, and it allows you to pick dates/times for a potential meeting/party/whatever/thingie and email potential attendees these potential dates/times.
Then, when there’s a majority who can attend on a particular date/time, the tool emails you to say, “the majority of your attendees have picked such-and-such.” Poof.
No more drama.
No more, I can do Tuesdays. Yeah, but I’m busy Tuesdays. What about Thursday? No, my kid has soccer. But everyone else can do Thursdays. What about Friday during the day? I already said I work. Sunday then. No, I have church. That’s my family’s day to hang out. Etcetera.
(Can you tell I’ve done a lot of meeting planning over the years?)
If you’re trying to figure out when folks will be available for your party or meeting or cat’s birthday or dog’s wedding, Doodle will be your new best friend.
Boo-ya, baby. Mic drop. 🙂
