PAY DAY BLOGGERS: Look forward to blogging that your ass off

The world of blogging is filled with a lot of unique people. There are those who blog for freedom of expression. There are also those who blog to earn. Then there’s the group that blog to do both – freedom of expression and getting their efforts rewarded come pay day.

We see many of’em blog for different reasons. Some blog to make their unique voices heard (hahahhahh! This is the founding reason of modern day blogging). Other bloggers do it to let go off the day’s stress; while the rest do it to improve their writing talents (of course that’s what I’m using this blog for).

Whether your using Typepad, WordPress, or Blogger to vent off your steam, it is important for you to be yourself.

Being yourself doesn’t mean you won’t offend anyone

You don’t need everybody’s approval to be happy. You also don’t need everybody’s approval to discover yourself. For you to blog well, you need to have something to say.

This also means you need to have a life. Blogging needs you to come to the realization that you ARE and always WILL BE a work-in-progress.

How? You may ask me…

The answer is simple: ”All bloggers are learners.”

It doesn’t matter whether it’s your past experiences or your current living condition or your imaginations of the future you want to live in. Blogging requires you to improve your skill to the point where you can churn yourself – past, present and future. And then weave it into a chewable node that your audience can pick two or more valuables that benefit them in some particular ways.

This positions you to kick ass

Say your mind. Keep learning. Keep dreaming. Keep discovering. Keep connecting the dots.

Then one day will come when you will have to smile as you look back and see…

    You committed to your craft.
    You stood your ground
    You paid your dues
    You sacrificed

…and all paid off.

Calabar Warm Sunshine: Day for the Creatives

It is beautiful over here in Calabar.

I love the view.

Warm skies. No rain today. Sunny enough to need a shade.

Sunny enough to take off your shirt and jump into a pool (hope you own one lol).

I think we all need balance.

Taking out time to relax and imagine a beautiful future is awesome. It’s good for your spirit and good for your body. Sorry physically exhausted labourers > you ain’t gonna value this talk.

THIS CAN BE HARD WHEN YOU’RE ON THE FAST LANE OF LIFE

I think work should be enjoyed. This is why it is very important for you to build your career around your lifestyle and not the reverse.

TRUST ME ON THIS ONE

You can never get enough of peace and joy when you’re out of alignment with your real self. Work is a medium that the creator of creators uses to bless us all. But there’s no use in beating yourself up if you can create time to enjoy the gifts of life.

There are so many people running around to make ends-meet but they’re still missing the mark.

Get the point folks: activity does not necessarily translate into growth. What I’m throwing on the table here is that work is meant to bless all parties concerned – spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically.

Picture this as a balanced mountain of confidence on the earth. You are that mountain with the confidence that no harm can come near your dwelling and you are blessed in whatever you use your creative spirit to do.

Afterall, creativity is difficult without any form of personal effort to positively align one’s own thoughts with the endless possibilities of unique opportunities that balance your skills with your personality.

I suggest…

Be your real self, love your work and let the sunshine flood your life.
