How to BE a Positive Social Networking Butterfly“Kind words do not cost much….Yet they accomplish much.” ~ Blaise Pascal

Whether we like it or not Social Media is here and SO in your face, that its pretty hard to ignore it. I agree it might not be for everyone, but its here and its literally everywhere.

3 Positive ways to add Heart to your writing ~ Heart Centered Blogging

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”  ~William Wordsworth

As a writer and blogger, I often feel like there is a deadline somewhere I need reach successfully.

Those articles would be so technical and cold.

When I was in the 8th grade, my English professor would often kick me out of class for being way too talkitive. I’ve mentioned before, my nickname all through high school was chatterbox ;) I loved it too! Although I was never really in class during my english lectures, I scored the highest in my english exams. Seeing this happen for two consecutive years, my English professor sat me down and had a chat with me. He said in his stern but nurturing voice, “You can write! One day I see you becoming a writer and having great impact but only if you focus. Channelize your energy little girl and you will be a force to reckon with. Dont get caught up in the hormones and throw your talent to the dogs.” Continue reading
