I have been busy updating and redesigning sites this week – here is my latest post from new look site

New look Blog Trainer UK Site and Blogs on Front Page Feature

Sporting a New look Blog Trainer UK Site and Blogs on Front Page Feature, this site explains what one-to-one courses I teach for Blogging, Health and Happiness. It includes my most recent posts from the blogs I regularly post on. No longer do you have to wait for posts on here, you can click though and subscribe to those blogs or bookmark this site and scroll down to the bottom of the page to stay up-to-date.

I am by nature a writer, my huge passion for writing seeps into everything I do. Blogging for me has completely changed my life by enabling me to find my writer’s voice and I know it could do the same for you. Now I am a Kindle Author my writing and training people has become the main focal point of my life and my original writing blog blog is where my writing journey started for me, and where I will always reside first and foremost as a blogger. It’s my home, my comfy couch, and where I can love living every day. People follow me on my journey and share their lives with me there. That is something so special.

So rather than blog once in a while on here, I have decided to display my top posts on here from my other blogs I blog regularly on, so you will always be up-to-date on what is happening both personally and professionally, and can pick up some useful and helpful advice and tips along the way. I have 19 live websites and want to devote my time to giving you consistent blog posts that can make a difference across a few blogs, other than occasional ones here or on my other sites. My intention is to create lots of books and training courses for your personal and professional development across a range of genres – particularly books – it’s what I am born to do. So look out for future developments on my site and across my Quirky Books sites. In the meantime, subscribe to my blog to keep up with what is happening and my for personal and professional development and inspiration.

I have actually been suffering Burnout this week, because while I have been on holiday from my day job, I have been working most days on my websites and got lower than normal blood pressure which has dizzy and feeling like I am going to fall on the floor side-effects, so I rested yesterday and half of Friday, although apparently I need to read and get more sleep for the next few weeks.

I want to ensure all of my websites are as up-to-date as possible and refer people to my blog on here and my blog. Because besides this and that blog, and my I want to now focus on developing my other quirky books sites and my site into books and courses for people’s personal and professional development, spanning multiple topics of non-fiction self-help/how-to, and with video training courses aimed especially at the beginner market to maybe more advanced. With very short video training and longer courses to suit different tastes and pockets. ~The main thing is, I want to write constantly, so books will always be first and foremost my priority and I really want to excel at being a Kindle Author. My Twitter book is selling well and I couldn’t be more pleased that Amazon is actually advertising the book for me now. I have received two emails so far, with my own book at the top of the list as a recommended book to buy. I truly believe that I need to devote the majority of my time now to writing, and trying to manage so many other sites has posed the question should I get rid of some or any of them – but as I spent 3 years building them up and they can almost all be connected to my writing in some way in the future, and most to courses, I don’t want to make a hasty decision. I literally want to devote my life mostly to writing books for Kindle, until I can get the books in me, out, I feel I am going to burst. – What are your thoughts on this??

As always, stay quirky and write soon, Sandra xx

Blog Trainer UK is #FLBiz of the Month

Hi everyone



As you may or may not know, I teach Blogging as an aid to recovery for the Recovery Learning Community, that is part of the NHS Partnership Trust.

I also teach Blogging for Business Fast Track Masterclass and Blogging for Health and Happiness Workshop, at the Phoenix in Exeter, in Devon, in the UK. For this, I go under the name of Blog Trainer UK and have my own site, that is a Google Verified Business.

I am pleased to say that Blog Trainer UK is #FLbiz of the Month, for both January and February 2015. In order to receive the award, you have to use #FLbiz in your tweets. This gives you free business promotion in the form of Retweets of your Tweets.

I am also pleased to tell you, that #FLbiz is a free business promotional tool, from the company and and the person behind the company, Aaron Palmer, I have been mentoring for some time in his business. I came up with the idea for Business of the Month; that has been hugely successful in helping his business to grow.

Here is the Founder, Aaron Palmer’s testimonial, of the Quirky Mentoring work that I have done for, and with him.

“When our business needed effective marketing and development strategies in order to build our brand, Sandra and Quirky Mentoring worked closely with us to provide a unique, quirky and successful solution which was personalised to our business. She created opportunities for us by suggesting our Business of the Month competition which has really increased the awareness of our hashtag #FLbiz and has helped grow our business with our hashtag now having over 5 million views per month. Sandra has also supported us every step of the way in increasing our Twitter followers from 2,000 to nearly 10,000 in just under 11 months with new and quirky ways with engaging with our audience. 

Sandra has mentored and inspired promotional ideas for our Business of the Month Marketing competition also, which in turn offered opportunities to expand our business Group even further. This has since created a networking platform for us, where we have successfully launched a rapidly expanding e-commerce business which has tripled it’s turnover since 2013. 

This has supported our business Group greatly as with Sandra’s help, we have now built the foundations in which we can fulfil other business opportunities. All of which we are very thankful for.

A true and inspiring quirky service which you will never find elsewhere.” –

Launch Of Quirky Training and Quirky-Marketing

Hi everyone

Quirky Training In Association with Quirky Academy
Quirky Training, incorporating Quirky-Marketing, produces courses for Quirky Academy and Blog Trainer UK
Quirky-Marketing - Mixing Your Business With Your Pleasure
Quirky-Marketing – Mixing Your Business With Your Pleasure


Apologies for not getting around your blogs much lately, or leaving comments. I have been massively busy. I have two employed jobs, am self employed, and building a whole quirky brand. I now know, my mission in life, is to get everyone to embrace their quirky and be their authentic self, in their life and business; to lead a happy, successful and fulfilling existence.

Since Sunday night, until 4.38am this morning, I have been busy with the creation and launch of Quirky Training and Quirky Marketing, that are two of my new websites. I have had some sleep, but only 45 minutes this morning. I went to bed at 6.15am and got up for work at 7am, to go for an IT session in my teaching job, then after to my day job.

Quirky Training and Quirky-Marketing form part of My World Of Quirky Organisation, along with others. Quirky Training produces the courses for Quirky Academy, that is my educational hub, and Quirky Marketing is the social media and marketing aspect of Quirky Training. Blog Trainer UK (that is me), creates my own courses and Quirky Training produces them. Also, within my organisation are Quirky Mentoring, Quirky Coaching, beat redundancy blues (beatredundancyblues) and Quirky Books (quirkybooks.) Underpinning all of these, is my Embrace Your Quirky Philosophy, to be your authentic self, mo matter what.

I have still to build websites for Quirky Mentoring, Quirky Coaching, World Of Quirky and finish Embrace Your Quirky.

Embrace Your Quirky and Write soon

It’s Official – I am the UK Blog Trainer

Hi everyone

Today is the official launch of my new blog trainer business and my new http;// site.

Teaching Blogging as an aid to recovery – How to start a blog, has been successful, and I thoroughly enjoy teaching it so much, that I now offer to teach blogging as a business.

I have been blogging for 4 years this year, and like a lot of you, I can’t get enough of it. I am still learning and evolving as a blogger and I always will be.

Including this blog, I currently have 4 blogs that I blog to as frequently as possible. Although this blog is always my priority because it’s my first love, I value your loyalty and like to give back to you.

I provide inspirational blog posts at

I blog to give help, advice and inspiration, to people who have been made redundant on my site.

I blog about events I have been to, about my interests, passions and businesses at

Two of my blogs are blogs, the others are self hosted blogs, so I can teach both, but the person I am teaching, would need their own site to do so. I can also create sites, using templates, widgets and plugins.

If I can take a business on a deep and meaningful journey to connect with its customers, I will be filled with joy. If I can help make just one more person’s life so much happier and more rewarding through blogging, I will be ecstatic

If you know of anyone who could benefit from me teaching them, please spread the word. I can teach one-to-one, or as part of a workshop for up to 8 people. As one-to-one teaching is bespoke, prices can vary, they start from £30 an hour, in the Exeter area, in the UK. If they quote this post on this blog, they save 10% off an hour, or on a workshop.

For anyone living outside the UK who wants training via Google Hangouts or Skype, please contact me using email in the first instance.

My business number is 01392 434202 for a free 20 minute consultation, or they can email me at blogtrainer@blogtrainerUK.

Catch me on Twitter at or Facebook

Thanks for your continued support. I couldn’t do it without you.
