    We Must Prepare for the Next Pandemic

    When the next pandemic strikes, we’ll be fighting it on two fronts. The first is the one you immediately think about: understanding the disease, researching a cure and inoculating the population. The second is new, and one you might not have thought much about: fighting the deluge of rumors, misinformation and flat-out lies that will appear on the internet.

    Want More Traffic? Here’s How.

    Sometimes I ask myself if there’s more to this blogging thing than being addicted to traffic. You start a blog, or a YouTube channel, create a podcast, whatever your passion may be. You put some content out there, and a few people stop by and compliment your work. That’s when the madness starts. You start to go online for traffic strategies, going to webinars instead of movies, and even studying blogs like the Art of Blogging. Hehehe. But you know what? I feel you. And because I went th...

    The Concise Guide to Building Relationships with Other Bloggers

    Contrary to what you might be inclined to believe, the web is not a safe haven for socially awkward individuals. The fact that many bloggers struggle to get even one person to read their content means that they do not invest the time and energy into building relationships with other bloggers. Because they don’t know how or because they think it does not matter. Let me say this: talent alone is not enough. Lots of talented people died poor, sick, and alone precisely because they never though...

    Feel Like Giving Up? Read This.

    I launched my first blog in January 2011. I had released my first self-published novel on Amazon. I was very excited, and I was sure that I’d soon conquer the world… I quit after three posts, no views, no comments, no nothing. Five days into my career as a blogger, I grew bitter and remorseful, felt invisible, decided it was all for nothing, and deleted my blog.

    Protecting Your Creative Mindspace

    Mindspace. You won’t find this term in Merriam-Webster, but I’m willing to bet most writers know what I’m talking about. The mind is a place where electricity ignites and runs over brain cells creating memory, thoughts, emotions. A mind is its own entity, but when you add “space” to the term, it creates a whole new dimension. Space equals capacity, area, breadth, but it also means BREATHING ROOM. What term could be more perfect for a creative–for a writer–than mindspace?

    The Five Biggest Doubts of The Modern Blogger

    A healthy dose of skepticism can be extremely useful, but when you mix that up with paranoia, you are setting yourself up for failure. Doubting yourself before you even start, asking yourself questions that inhibit you from writing your best blog posts, that’s a recipe for disaster. Yet, we all do it. What? Don’t you?

    How to Get Your Comment Noticed

    ow do you get more readers? While the first (and most obvious) answer is to write quality content, the truth is that networking with other bloggers, especially if they are in the same niche as you, is essential to getting more readers. And doing all that is as simple as commenting on their blog posts.

    Being consistent: a path to personal growth

    Practice makes perfect. You have probably heard it a million times. When people say the same thing over and over again it’s easy to overlook it. When was the last time you applied this adage proactively? We all have things we want to get better at. We all want to do more, to be more. Consistency – sticking to the practice of your craft – is timely advice, but how does it apply to daily life?

But only if you know how to recognize those thoughts for what they are, and then train yourself to have them at the right time.
