Change is coming to Blogging Without A Blog (BWAB).
Due to an increased workload on my paying job and other time commitments, I’m decreasing my posting schedule and moving the New Blog Of the Week (NBOTW) series to Wednesdays. My new schedule will be:
Monday – A post written by me which will hopefully get you thinking.
Wednesday – Promotion of a new blog of the week or two not so new blogs that are well worth reading and/or subscribing to.
Friday – Either a lesson written by a “substitute teacher” (guest post), or an article written by me.
If you’re interested in guest posting or would like to have your blog considered for the New Blog Of The Week (or not so new) series, please feel free to use the contact form to send me a message.
The two blogs I’m showcasing this week are as follows:
In no particular order, the first blog is Oktober5, which is written my Ryan and Sarah.
An excerpt from a post titled Simon and Garfunkel’s 10 Blogging Lessons, written by Ryan, says,
“I’d rather be a hammer than a nail. Yes I would. If I could, I surely would.” – El Condor Pasa (if I Could)
Write like you’re the hammer, not the nail. This is your blog, your universe, so let the hammer fall. Speak out, speak up; don’t be the nail and let others hammer you into a box. Dare to be different. And if you’re feeling up to it, tell your critics where they can shove it.
To share some of Sarah’s words, in the post titled Writing Life Cycle, she writes,
…Yesterday when you sat in this very same place, no words came. You fought for one hour with yourself and lost the battle. Three words on the page and you walked away dejected.
And yet, you’re back today…
The second blog is titled B4Success, authored by Neil.
From his post titled: How To Start A Personal Growth Plan, he says:
…Personal growth is an exercise that starts change. It begins a change from within to allow you to grow as an individual. It is a process that requires you to ask tough questions about yourself and your present situation. Personal growth is not an easy task…
He then goes on to list questions we can ask ourselves.
Neil gets us thinking about why plans fail in his post titled: The One Reason Why Your New Years Resolution Will Fail
You see the reason most people fail when it comes to their resolutions is because they forget to plan. That’s right, they develop some abstract resolution for the year decide they’re going to see it through, but they don’t plan for how they’ll accomplish the goal. That is why they fail. To all of you who are quitters (you know who you are) you probably didn’t plan either.
He tells it like it is, doesn’t he?
I highly recommend both of these blogs. They are great reads, and as you can see by the snippets I’ve included, these authors love to share their thoughts with others. Take time to dig through their archives and find more great articles.
There you have it, my dear readers, the changes you’ll see here at BWAB and my recommendations for this week.
Come back on Friday and participate in the class when Davina, of Shades of Crimson will be our “substitute teacher” (guest writer).
I know we’re in for a real treat.
