The Manifesto of Perfection – Where to Start?

Hi all,

I have recently taken the time to update and add my ‘Where to Start’ page to the sites menu.  This is a place for new and established readers alike to have a look at some of my favourite posts since I started the site in February 2014.

I have broke these down into the following areas:

  • Creativity – Posts about writing, blogging and general creativity
  • Health – Posts about nutrition and fitness
  • Money – Posts about work and finances
  • Self-Improvement – Posts about goals, mindset, habits and generally living a better life

I will probably update this page again soon.  But please see a copy of the links on this page below to see if there are any posts that take an interest.

Finally thank you for continuing to read, liking and commenting on my site.  I appreciate all feedback! Continue reading “The Manifesto of Perfection – Where to Start?”

Blogging Etiquette: How do you ask someone to view your blog?

Hello good reader.  As writers we are eager to get people to see our work – in the world of blogging and the Internet there is so much content out there that it is difficult to be seen.

In many situations we may get frustrated and quit because we are not getting that instant validation that we need.  In other situations we may take action, taking time away from the writing to plug and promote our work as much as possible.  I understand I have been there.

I thought I would give my own personal opinion on what is the correct way of asking someone to view your blog.

How am I going to make someone’s life better today?

6am, the alarm on my phone plays its upbeat jingle, it’s called Over the Horizon yet I don’t feel like that.  Motivation to pull myself out of bed will do for the moment. Continue reading “How am I going to make someone’s life better today?”

Don’t quit (blogger edition)

I thought I would take 5 to reflect on the process of blog writing.  Since I have started in the WordPress community, I have seen a number of blogs that begun come and go.

And to be honest I don’t always know why they stopped – because some were seriously good!

Maybe they didn’t enjoy writing that much, they got writers block, or the disappointment of only having a small audience that didn’t provide instant validation they wanted made them quit.  Or perhaps life just got in the way. Continue reading “Don’t quit (blogger edition)”

I came out of the closet

No let me rephrase that as I don’t want you thinking I came out as a homosexual and now live in a civil partnership with a man called Nigel.

I showed someone my writing. Continue reading “I came out of the closet”

Never dismiss the power of a New Year’s Resolution

funny-new-year-resolutions_1387945827

Its the middle of January and by this point many of us have either progressed or given up on New Year’s Resolutions.

But I have noticed a trend where people dismiss this idea – it could be because they see it as lame, cliché, they know they won’t stick with or are saying “Well you should have goals all year round”.

As someone who used to be in that camp, I will make an argument for why you should be making a New Year resolution.  I think they have potential to be powerful. Continue reading “Never dismiss the power of a New Year’s Resolution”

About the Manifesto of Perfection

I kind of picked up on the WordPress Zero to Hero challenge a bit too late.

It gave some 30 day steps and I thought it would be a good idea to help shape my blog.

Of course I fucked things up completely by day two, which was to tell the reader what your blog is about.GOALS

In my head I know what the Manifesto of Perfection is about, I have just been trying to sort out the mess that is my mind to give the reader an understanding on where I am coming from. Continue reading “About the Manifesto of Perfection”
