Personality – Gauging Between Too Much And Too Little

If you’re going to be a blogger you need to know what you’re up against. That’s why I’m repurposing this article and keeping some of the original comments because they’re really good and shows their personalities well.

There are over 440 million blogs in the world and it’s growing exponentially every year. The best thing about it is that there are a lot of people who decide they’re tired of blogging and bail out of the game. The worst thing about it is that you still end up with a lot of people you have to compete with for attention.

5 Reasons Your Blog Is Definitely About You

Some of you may remember Marcus Sheridan when he was just a guy who owned an outdoor pool company and wrote a blog called The Sales Lion. I loved reading his blog, I loved the way he wrote, and in general I loved the way he thinks; still do.

One of those things most of us who’ve been around a long time (too long for some lol) will eventually see is something we disagree with, even if it’s a relatively small thing. One of those things I sometimes advocate for new bloggers is that if you see something that sparks a thought in your mind, whether you agree with it or not, it’s pretty good inspiration to respond to it; that’s exactly what I did when I came across something I disagreed with, and I’m sharing it with you because, in the long run, you might take the point of this post and use it for your own potential long term success.

14th Anniversary Of I’m Just Sharing

Well, who saw this coming? Today marks the 14th anniversary of blogging on this site, and I’m astounded it’s lasted this long. True, my business blog’s been around longer, but there’s fewer articles there and I’ve received way less views and comments there… probably because of the main topic, leadership.

The first image I ever put on this blog; I can’t
remember where it’s from lol

There’s three things funny about the day I started blogging here. The first is that I only wrote one paragraph for the first article, introducing myself to the world. The second is that the topic I said I was going to address on the blog not only wasn’t the first one following it but that I wrote 3 articles on the same day, and the 3rd one, which is now private, was an example of what I thought I’d be writing about.

5 Blogging Lessons Learned From The Harry Potter Movies And Books

For those who have been with this blog for awhile, you know I’m a major league Harry Potter fan, both the books and the movies. With that said, let’s get this out of the way. J. K. Rowling has done a “nice” job of somewhat alienating herself with her position on a subject I’m not bringing up here. I don’t support her position, but I also refuse to cancel my love for the Harry Potter universe because of it. I didn’t throw away my Orson Scott Card books when he was found to be supporting the repeal of gay marriage in California, even though I thought that was idiotic as well.

This article is only about the lessons any writer, blogger, story writer or whatever else is related to the topic, can learn by thinking about how J. K. put the entire series together. In a major way, it’s atypical of how many writers put their words together. Here and there I’ve been known to do some research, but the longest I’ve ever put into researching an article on this blog on something I wasn’t totally familiar with was 3 hours; I don’t see me ever doing that again.

Sleeping, Eating & Blogging

Most people don’t know about the connection between sleeping and eating. They think they do, and there are many tales of how eating one thing produced this or that kind of dream, or not sleeping on full or empty stomachs and the like. As it turns out, there are a few lessons one can learn about these two things, and how they’re related to blogging. Don’t think I can do it? Let’s find out.

my favorite kind of eating 🙂

1. Did you know that you could survive more than 60 days without food if you at least have something legitimate to drink? That doesn’t mean it’s great living, but it’s survival. That means you’d have a chance to overcome whatever problems you might have if that’s the reason why you can’t or don’t have food to eat.
