Having recently overcome a huge hump of writers' block, I have the utmost sympathy for anyone who's staring in front of a blank screen, willing the impossible words to flow from their fingers. But they're not the only people who are struggling with their blog! I suspect it's just as common to struggle to end your writing as it is to begin it. How do you call 'time; on an article that just doesn't seem to have the tone and design you dreamed of? Do you vow that 'done is better than perfect'? Do you swear that you'll quit after just one more arduous edit? Did you have an incredible vision in you mind, only to see weak words tumble around your screen?
You worked hard on your blog post. Now it's time to make that blog post work for you! Here's 13 ways to improve your blog promotion.
If you feel like you have a love/hate relationship with your blog posts, you’re not alone. Certain ideas can bump around in your brain for days, weeks - even years. By the time you finally get your thoughts down on paper, source some photos, and drag yourself through the tedious process of editing with the promise of a caffeinated reward at the end, you’d be forgiven for never wanting to revisit that particular post ever again.
Booking a flight for the holidays? Searching for a great deal? Here are the best apps to help you along the way.
This list of my favourite flight apps is a deeply personal one. Part of my work includes being a travel writer (at TurnipseedTravel.com) and, as such, the more money I’m able to save on flights, the more money I’m able to spend on travel. And, besides, who doesn’t love a bargain no matter what it is?!
And each October, my bargain hunting instincts go into overdrive, as I’m searching for fantastic holiday flights for family. But getting Christmas bargains is easier said than done! These are exactly the apps I use every time, for every trip – and this is the exact order I use them in. Happy traveling!
Hey there, spring! Is it really you? Well, admittedly, that remains to be seen but a final puff of winter is no excuse to delay spring cleaning. I must confess that I LOVE spring cleaning.
There's just something about shaking off the dust and opening up the windows to fresh air that makes you feel like you're pushing the reset button on so many things. This is the BEST time of year to get organized, declutter, refresh, and recharge. And, of course, there are apps for that!
What a week it's been Ottawa! So cold, then so snowy - then so cold again! And I know we're not the only city that's been suffering. There's only one way to cope - to dream of an escape to the beach.
For a lot of people, the beach is where they go to take a break from technology but there's a ton of cool apps that can help you plan the trip of a lifetime - or at least keep you in good spirits until the snow melts.
