Build Your Bridges And Your Ship Will Come In

I first started blogging on WordPress in 2009.  I’d had a free blog for a while but found a course online with John Thornhill that showed me how to set up my own domain, and using WordPress run a ‘proper’ blog.  I completely threw myself into John’s teaching, following every instruction to the letter, and…

New Year Round Up

It has become fairly customary amongst bloggers to offer a New Year round up post.  These posts tend to recap what happened during the year and thank the visitors to blogs across the globe.  I don’t normally do a round up post, but I did one a couple of years ago, in fact looking back…

Want More Blog Visitors? Run Your Own Challenge!

When I first started blogging in 2006 I was unable to connect with other bloggers, mostly because I simply did not know how to do that!  It was only by joining a mentoring programme that I was given the tools and advice to create a blogging community around me.  During the first stages of the…

Creative Action And The Learning Curve

My greatest intention has always been to write the very best works that I can, every time.  It is something I can achieve if I have a plan before I start.  My action starts by writing out the plan.  I have learned that this method works well for me. Usually I write long hand, so…
