Be Creative

Be CreativeBe Creative.

Well now that is not a sentence that is going to spark creativity.

Creativity does not happen on demand.

There is a process, especially if your creativity is blocked. If this is the case then a really great place to start is by taking a look at your priorities.

A priority is a short term goal that you want to accomplish in an allotted time period.  A priority should be a good mix of the things that you want to do and the things that you should do.

It is unrealistic to think that your entire priority list need only be filled with your desires (such as be creative while writing my award winning book) as that is not the reality of life. The reality of life includes deadlines, appointments and other things that must be taken care. However, I also caution you against filling your list exclusively with what you should do as that will not motivate you and certainly wont allow you to be creative. read more

Ways To Discourage Blog Visitors

Of course we don’t want to discourage blog visitors but many bloggers do, without realizing.  As bloggers we all want new visitors to return and become regular readers. We need as many people as possible to follow us and share our posts on Social Media platforms. Online Marketers need clients, sales or affiliates.

Here are some of the ways you may be preventing your blog from attracting return visitors, making it hard for them to follow you on social networks, and to buy from you or join you in business. read more

Should You Care About Your Klout Score

klout SCORE

This is an interesting question and my answer to this question would be you should probably care about your Klout Score as much as you care about your Alexa Rating.

Just in case you don’t know is a web metrics site that measures your social media reach and activity across all the major Social Sites and then gives you a Klout score between 1 and 100

At the end of the day both your Klout and Alexa Ranks are really not that important in the whole scheme of things because you don’t have to have a great Alexa Rank to have good serps or good Page Rank and you do you really need to measure your social media score?  read more

People LOVE video!

What most people think right away is you have to show your face on camera. Wrong.

Video on Pinterest

book picturePinning Videos On Pinterest

I just had some great fun with this! I created a ‘Video’ board and before I add any more, I just had to share with you how easy it is to do! 

 You will need:

  • Pinterest account
  • YouTube account
  • PC or Laptop
  • About 5 minutes or less 🙂

If you haven’t already, create a board for your videos, give it a name and a description.

 Next, if you already know which video you’d like to pin, you will need the short link that leads directly to the video of your choice on YouTube. If you’ve ever shared video’s on Facebook before, you may already know how to do this. read more
