Do Numbers Really Count….

person-1627693_1920

Do numbers really count for you when you blog? Are you blogging for money, recognition or just because you enjoy spending time writing content on your blog?

Do you have a Twitter or a Facebook Account? Does it bother you when you lose followers or friends in these accounts? Does it make you lose sleep wondering, what you did wrong?

When you started blogging, the main reason was to help others with the knowledge you have. To seek others like yourself and share your information.

For me, it has never been about any type of monetary compensation. It has been about sharing my opinion. Sharing the articles, bringing more awareness to issues that matter most to us.

For the new bloggers out there, welcome to the blogging world. My advice to you, write about what you like. Do not worry how many followers you have or didn’t get today. You are informing a community, you are helping someone out there with your words.

The road to knowledge

 

You have opened a road, “the road of knowledge”, you are their voice. You are their inspiration. The words you write today will be immortal. Choose them well.

Have fun! Bring irony to the situation, but most of all always bring hope and peace in the article you write. You have taken a very important job. Self-satisfaction will be your reward.

Mad As Hell Part 2

I haven’t done this segment in a long time. Today is one of those days, when you really have to express yourself about the little things that really, really irritate you a bit.x4aaf4su9q

I guess Wednesday has turned into a Monday for me, today. So let’s begin.

Drivers– Yes, drivers. There should be a law after so many years you should be given a road test again. Mine you, I probably would not pass it either. But there are some real characters on the road. Take this morning. I am driving my 7-year-old to school. This woman cuts in front of me as she makes an illegal left turn gives me the finger. Honestly, I laugh at her stupidity. Then I realise she is the reason women drivers get so bad rep.

Finances– Yes, the saga of bill paying. As in every relationship,there is one-half that is better at this than the other. Unfortunately, in my household, my husband fails at this miserably. From time to time, I let him handle the finances so he can see, it’s not an easy job. So today  his truck payment is late. (Sorry sweetie, I had to put it out there). Yes, my husband read this blog. He knows I am fuming at this point.

Charity Work– Being an advocate against Animal Abuse it is not an easy job. Each of us gives our time, resources and talent for a good cause. I  made a magazine called Max And Friends (it’s free)  I am taking donations for local shelters. Right now we stand at 0% donated. This makes me sad.

Bloggers– I love my community on WordPress.com. I do have other sites that I manage at WordPress.org this one is always home for me. I do not like when other bloggers take your idea and run away with it and make it their own. That is wrong. This has happened to me several times already.

Disrespect– We were taught as children to be respectful of others. Why all of a sudden all you see, hear and read is how angry and disrespectful everyone has become. Honestly, I seriously believe there is something in the food to make people so angry. Just a thought.

This is my “Mad As Hell!” my daughter Ana Rui, did for my new segment.

 

 

Thank you for reading my blog. It means a lot to me.

When things get a bit hectic…

When things get a bit hectic at home, I usually look for a nice picture of something I like. This helps me with the stress I am feeling and the sense of frustration.

Which picture helps you out? What motivates you to move that mountain?

Turning a negative into a positive

Take A Moment
Take a moment

“Sometimes life throws us a curve here and there and we may feel that we are all alone.

Yet we are not. Always look around you and find something positive from your struggle. Take a moment and look at the positive of the situation. Learn from your mistake and next time make it better. ”
