Thinking Your Way To Success | 10/22/2014
Think positively, have the right attitude, take risks and keep on trying. These are all important qualities needed to achieve success. You read about them all the time in blog and social media posts but that’s not the aim of this article. Instead I suggest you think in a positive and practical way, to make decisions and come up with new ideas and think outside the box. Thinking positively doesn’t mean accepting everything as being wonderful. Thinking negatively about something doesn’t mean you have the wrong attitude overall. Marketers concentrate on the positive in promotions to encourage us to buy […] Continue Reading...

Marketing Tips That Don’t Work | 10/07/2014
As bloggers and online marketers we all learn about the “should dos” to become successful and/or reach financial freedom but what about marketing tips that don’t work for you. We are told: Be organized, stick to schedules, set your goals, work long and hard, move out of our comfort zones …. Buy this and automate that, join and post to multiple social media sites, join forums and communities, build an email list, optimize for search engines, watch this video, attend this webinar…. Do things this way not that, blog at least once, twice, three times a week, keep your posts […] Continue Reading...

Sueblimely Succinctly Summarizing | 09/26/2014
I haven’t yet finished the new theme design for sueblimely.com but it was time to make some changes. I want to point them out to make you aware of what’s new, especially the bits intended to increase my income. Now I’ve probably put you off looking but at least I’m being honest. I’ve decided to go with the Genesis framework for my new design but, as usual, I haven’t found an “out of the box” child theme that suits me. So I’m building one from scratch. If anyone is interested, I’ll talk about why I chose Genesis in a […] Continue Reading...

PAC Power Into Your Blogging Buzz | 09/17/2014
It’s easy for me to use the sort of positive words I spoke of in my last post, when it comes to small, friendly, blogging communities where members offer mutual support, motivation and inspiration.

When you’re competing with so many others, how do you write absolutely compelling blog posts that make yours stand out?

Follow Buttons Free Download | 08/04/2014
When I come across a blog with content that interests me I’m always keen to follow the writers on their social media networks. That’s not possible if there are no follow buttons.

Facebook Image Sizes Timeline Newsfeed | 07/21/2014
Yes, this is another post about Facebook Image Sizes. You’ve probably read some before so why read this too? Firstly, this post only talks about images you post to your Timeline and those included when you post a link. The main reason is that most posts I’ve read aren’t very clear and the infographics you see are even more confusing. I hope to make your life easier by giving you examples. To have the most impact, your Timeline and Newsfeed images need to fill up the area available without being cropped. Unless you want to encourage your viewers to click […] Continue Reading...

Brand Your Head – It’s Quite Painless | 07/08/2014
By “Brand Your Head” I’m talking about your website or blog header, although walking around with your blog url on your forehead is an interesting promotional idea. I’ve explored a lot of the new responsive WordPress themes which only have a thin website header with a logo, or site title, and navigation menu all on one row. They’re great if you have an easily recognizable, unique logo or blog title, which everyone identifies with you or your unique product(s). (or if you’re promoting something that you don’t want to be recognized for!). Very few bloggers and/or marketers have an unmistakable […] Continue Reading...
