The biggest issue bloggers face is the dreaded about page! We know we need one, but the idea of writing about yourself makes you shutter with fear.

Think about the hours you spend on your writing. Now, multiply that by the hours you scratch your head on what to write for Monday’s blog post.
When I began this adventure of blogging back in 2009, I had no idea where I wanted to go with it. I knew it would be fun, but I didn’t realize I could change people’s lives through my writing.

It’s Christmas Morning! The gifts are ready to be opened. The turkey is in the oven. Despite all of the festivities, don’t forget the reason we celebrate this season.

We live in a society that makes it easy to be distracted from what’s important. But what a lot of people don’t realize is, we find it okay to remain distracted, and procrastinate. It’s our subconscious hard at work, and keeping out the distractions is the hard part.
As a content producer, I find I have to be vigilant to keep distractions at a minimum, otherwise I become the dog watching for squirrels.
