Hey! My Blog Is Really Neat! – Really Neat Blog Award Bulk Nominations


Really Neat Blog Award
Hey, My Blog Is Really Neat!

I am pleased to announce that Patty from http://petitemagique.wordpress.com has nominated me for the Really Neat Blog Award. Patty is a kind hearted and warm individual, who is always very supportive of my quirky endeavours. Thank you so much Patty, you are a true shining star in the darkness!

I am about a year behind with my blog award nomination – Yes, that’s so naughty I know. I am also a year later with my Break Through the Barriers of Redundancy book being published. Yes, I haven’t forgotten to publish my book, to let you into a little secret, I am waiting until I finish building my Quirky Empire of business/embrace your quirky life related sites, so I can unashamedly advertise my free and paid for services in the back of my book. See – I told you there was method in my quirky madness, well, I may not have said that to all of you, but hey! You telepathically thought it in a quirky way now, didn’t you? I mean absolutely everything I do in my life has purpose and meaning whether it is apparent to even myself at the time or not.


Before I announce my nominations, to give you an idea of the scale of what I now do – Below are links to my websites and social media – Please join me on my embrace your quirky mission. http://www.embraceyourquirky.com and http://www.worldofquirky.com will be coming to a screen near you, later in 2015.

For those of you who don’t know, I used to suffer with depression for years and freed myself from it, without medication, almost 3 years ago. I still worked when I was suffering with depression, because I felt better working than being at home and could separate that part of my life, to still be affective. I wasn’t a manic depressive person, but I did have a lot of times when I did not want to exist in the world. Now I am a completely different person, because I know my purpose in life is to write and to help others and I embrace every quirky thing about me. There is never a dull moment in my life, it’s super awesome. I used my own embrace your quirky philosophy, to get myself well, improve my life and be happy to be alive. I want to help others to do the same.

By the end of 2015, I want everyone to know how to embrace their quirky to lead a happy, successful and fulfilling existence. If you haven’t already subscribed to my quirkybooksTV channel, please do so now, because I will have more videos next year, all about embracing your quirky, and if you miss them on here, you can get them straight to your inbox via the settings in your YouTube account. I would really like your involvement about the quirky topics I will be raising, so feel free to comment to your hearts content. I have some more fun videos to share with you first over the next few weeks as we ease into the new year. I still have another 6 websites to build and more writing of courses for the teaching I do, as well as attend my day job 5 days a week. All in the life of a Quirk!

You can now find me at Facebook on 8 Pages and you can find me on Twitter at 8 Accounts:


To all of my friends who get worried about my health for taking on so much, I really appreciate your care and worry over me. It is a lot to take on, even I admit it, but I instinctively know it’s the right thing to do, and I have to go by what my instincts and creative mind are telling me to do.

I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings, bring it on!

So, to break my usual rule of doing my nominations in the order they were given to me, I am doing the latest one first, as I only need to nominate as many people as I want and not answer any questions – If only more awards were like this one!

I may have to break the rules with my other award nominations and not answer some of the questions, or nominate the required amount of people, otherwise there will be a sad lack of award giving due to my tight time constraints. Even now I have a mountain of work piling up with deadlines, and I have to work the next 6 days in a row after today, in my day job, up until Christmas Eve. Happy Christmas!

The Really Neat Blog Award is a new award created by Dear Kitty.

Quirky Books Blog 4 Year WordPress.com Bloggerversary


4 Years of Blogging with WordPress.com
4 Year Bloggerversary With WordPress.com

I am thrilled to have been blogging for 4 years on this Quirky Books (quirkybooks) Blog.

Thanks to each and every one of you for joining me on my journey into print, and following my quirky goings on. I couldn’t have done the last 4 years without you. I love blogging and would never be without it, or you bloggers, in my life. I will always be blogging.

I never would have thought 4 years ago, that I would now teach blogging for a living. Okay, so I still have a full-time day job too. Teaching Blogging an an Aid to Recovery, is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in my entire life. I have been doing this on a self-employed basis, but will be going on the NHS Staff Bank from the 1st of December.

I am also teaching Blogging for Business, with my Blog for Business Fast Track Masterclasses, next year, at the Phoenix, in Exeter, I can’t wait.

http://www.embraceyourquirky.com will be coming soon. Along with an Embrace Your Quirky YouTube channel, stay tuned for that one.

I will still keep my http://www.youtube.com/user/quirkybooksTV channel too. If you have done so yet, check it out and subscribe.

As always, embrace your quirky and write soon

It’s Official – I am the UK Blog Trainer


Hi everyone
image

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

Teaching Blogging as an aid to recovery – How to start a WordPress.com 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 http://www.beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com

I blog to give help, advice and inspiration, to people who have been made redundant on my http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk site.

I blog about events I have been to, about my interests, passions and businesses at http://www.sandrabellamy.co.uk

Two of my blogs are WordPress.com blogs, the others are self hosted WordPress.org blogs, so I can teach both, but the person I am teaching, would need their own WordPress.org site to do so. I can also create WordPress.org 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 http://www.twitter.com/blogtrainerUK or Facebook http://www.facebook.com/BlogtrainerUK

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