Being Truthful And Open Without Telling It All

I’ve been blogging for 12 years now, almost 10 on this blog. Truth be told though, I’ve been writing online for more than 20 years.

My first love 🙂

I started back in 1996 on a site called My Dear Diary. You could use it for journaling or “diary-ing” (not a real word lol) and write pretty much anything. You got to decide what went public and what didn’t, and you didn’t have to use your real name. Since I’d been journaling since high school I thought it was the coolest place to be.

My New CPAP Mask And How It Relates To Blogging

As some of you know, I have problems sleeping. Most of the time I don’t have a problem falling asleep; staying asleep is my big issue. The thing that contributes the biggest concern is finding a proper CPAP mask.

CPAP mask and blogging

What’s a CPAP mask? I’ve talked about it before, but the two images on this post will give you a pretty good idea. In essence, those of us diagnosed with sleep apnea have a few ways to try to overcome a problem where we stop breathing while we sleep, and our bodies start jerking to wake us back up. One is to have surgery; another is to take certain types of medication; the last is to have a CPAP mask… which I could call a BiPAP mask since that’s actually the type of machine I have.

7 Things You Should Do Before Making A Guest Posting Request

One of the most freeing things I’ve done recently is deciding that I don’t have to try to be Neil Patel any longer because overall, Google’s never going to see me as an authority. I might get in the lucky post here and there but all those posts over 2,000 words aren’t getting it done.

She only requested a push

With that said, this is probably going to be the shortest post I’ve written in a long while, and it’s on a touchy subject for me; guest posting requests. If you want a little background on this topic and my reticence check out 5 Lies Of Guest Posting Requests before you go any further.

5 Writing And Blog Writing Tips With Explanations

I read a lot of blogs and I write a lot of posts. I’m certainly not perfect when it comes to the articles I write but most of the problems I see on other blogs or websites (especially news and information websites) are things that are easily avoidable… things I don’t tend to do myself.

Since I haven’t talked about writing issues in a long time, I thought it was time to offer some tips and critiques about writing, blog writing in particular, since this is an article on a blog.

I’m Never Going To Be Neil Patel And I’m Good With That

You probably think that’s a clickbait title, don’t you? In a way it is, but in another way it’s a declaration of something I’ve finally come to grips with, something that almost everyone else in the world also needs to come to grips with.

It’s taken me a while but I now realize that it’s a fruitless quest to even aim for. No matter what I do with the remaining years I have to blog here, there and everywhere else, I’m never, ever, going to get to the level of blogging success that Neil Patel is at. The closest we’re probably ever going to get at this point is following each other on Twitter (which I actually thought had happened but I guess not lol).
