Goodness look at the time! It’s 2:00 in the morning and my brain is still whirling from all the helpful tips and links I read from Bob Dunn and Judy Dunn’s blog.
It’s kinda crazy! I am so scared of asking questions and participating to all the sites I have thought of following, then suddenly came Bob,”The 7 Habits of Highly Successful Bloggers: It’s not all about content” came into view. Here’s the link: “http://www.bobwp.com/7-habits-highly-successful-bloggers-content. His ‘ the 7 habits of highly successful bloggers: it’s not all about content’
I scrolled further and yet I was rolled back to it and so I started reading. Mind you, I don’t read everything on twitter, as I am always pressing for time. I couldn’t believe myself reading it word for word from start to finish. I even read all the comments and messages of Bob’s followers. At the end of the message showed please post a comment.
There was a voice niggling on my ear telling me it’s time. Go ahead join in the fun and learn from it. Next thing I knew I’m leaving a piece of myself in the box.
I couldn’t believe he will respond. Let alone without a few dollars per hour rate, that I’ve heard a few friends were saying, that some charges for a few questions. A simple gesture of a caring guru. My inner voice just told me, “I told you so.”
It was weird. My spirit suddenly sky-rocketed and here I am, I’ve got something to write. What can I share to everyone being a newbie?
Well, I can share with you the links that a good man has shared with me. To some , it maybe nothing. It’s just another blog. But for me, for him to spend writing about 175 words or maybe about 200 words if you include all the numbers and punctuation’s he added to it. IT’S SOMETHING!
A time given freely: to read, to write and answer someone, is a person with a good heart. A tick in my book of ‘#Benevolent people’.
To feel welcome even though you know you’re very much behind from them, it lifted my spirit.
“kindness begets kindness.” I used to hear that from my grandma. I supposed she was right.
Beginner or not here’s a link that you can read on, share if you like. I don’t think Bob and Judy would mind. The many people who can learn and gain insight from their blogs , the better we will all feel and the better blogger we will all become. If you decided to follow them and get a one on one tutoring, then of course you have to pay for the services rendered.
Here are some links that I found useful and easy to understand:
