I was doing inspirational/motivational ad-libbed poems on my Quirky Books TV channel that compliments this blog, but made the switch in April to doing Life Hacks videos. The reason for the switch is because I want to help more people to live their best life and to live their purpose and I thought these short how-to videos would prove more popular in that respect. Although I know a couple of my subscribers who like and miss my poems and one was interactive on my channel before the switch, so what is your take on it, do you prefer these life-hack videos or my previous poetry videos? Please let me know.
I have many more subscribers on my Asexual Channel and now with my new Quirky Academy channel that I need to put a lot of my focus, time and energy into, as it goes with my new Quirky Academy site, it’s harder to keep this one going with less subscribers. I feel I need to get a theme and stick to it, as viewers will know more about what to expect and I might get more subscribers. So what types of videos would you like to see? If you are not already a subscriber, what types of videos would make you want to subscribe and what types of videos would make you want to interact by leaving a comment?
You Have The Power Within You was the first Motivational/Inspirational poem I have done on a LiveStream – check it out and let me know what you think in the comments below??
Everbody has the power within them to achieve great things, I always remember what Entrepreneur, Author and Speaker, Brendon Burchard say, “honour the struggle” and “your current circumstances do not dictate your future” – this is true! In 2018, I am going to be an online course trainer for myself, teaching others personal and professional development stuff, as well as getting other experts onboard – cannot wait! Super excited about that!!
I have had a lot of challenges over the past couple of months:
Redundancy from my day job of 5 years that I enjoyed (everything happens for a reason)
10 websites hacked – only just got every one of them back to some form of normality last week! ( Learnt a ton about websites security and using CPanel/File Manager, MyPHP Admin, MySQL, and more of a pro now, so hopefully it won’t happen again with the amount of security I now have in place on each site) and my completely new websites www.sandrabellamy.com and www.sandrabellamy.co.uk that I rebuilt from scratch, are looking good! Check them out and let me know what you think in the comments below please??
Split up with my first asexual boyfriend I ever had as he was no good for me and turned out not to be the loving and smitten person with me, that I thought he was! Now looking forward getting a more trustworthy guy for me and one who values my worth, or staying single forever, but hugely career focused for the next year – 2018!
Commercial printer (only printer I have, out of action for a month – finally got it working again in the last week!)
Appliance I bought was safety recalled (got a better model at no extra charge, and difference in cost with the higher insurance paid for me)
Have done no more work on Fibro book since being made redundant and I have people wanting to buy it (have connected online with more Fibro sufferers though, who may end up buying it)
I have decided to live more as ‘quirky’ me since being made redundant and sleep in the day and work throughout the night now usually – great for the soul and far more productive – If I get a ‘normal’ job it will be hard, as I love my life so much right now, in this moment, and forever – but I need money coming in! So we shall have to see what destiny holds for me. I am not afraid of hard work and do that every day almost – apart from the odd day if I see a friend! Even then, if I can squeeze work in then I will!! But next year needs to be more implementation, risk taking, and far more productive for me. Next year, will be my year to shine! Watch this space!
I am currently going through a huge change in my life because on the 21st of September, I am being made redundant from my day job, after 5 years. My full-time hours are being cut and instead, a part-time weekend only person will be employed. I have the option do just the weekends, or to take the weekend hours for a trial for 4 weekends until 15th of October, then take redundancy, if I don’t find anything else to make up the hours to full-time, as I can’t live on those hours, or take redundancy on the 21st. I am going to go with the middle option of the trial, if I have not got another job by the 21st.
At first I was very fearful, but now I am trying to think positive and look forward to starting a new work life and that new opportunities that will come my way.
I am also going to be focusing more on my Quirky Academy and getting that up and running as my online training centre for entrepreneurs, start-ups and creatives, with specialists teaching in their field – What courses would benefit you right now in your personal and professional development?

Hey my quirky friends, long time no write – shame on me hey!! It took me over 10+ hours to create this video. I put it together using a programme called Animatron so it took me a while to learn it, the quotes were created using another programme. Enjoy, and tell me what you think??
Doing anything for the first time can be scary but as I reflect back on this year to date, I have done a lot of firsts and will do more next year.
Angel had her first bath a couple of weeks ago and the bathing went surprisingly well – the hair drying took a lot longer and she decided to repeatedly try to climb under or over my arm at lightening speed. It must have taken twice as long as it should but because she is so gorgeous and so funny, it didn’t really matter because I love her so much. It will be her first Christmas soon, baby’s first Christmas is always good and a memorable one!!
So my firsts for this year:
I succeeded in learning how to use Photoshop so now I create all of my own T-Shirt designs and do the artwork for them.
I got tiered up to the next quantity of T-Shirt designs so I can sell more at one time on Amazon.com
I wrote and published my ‘How To Get Started With Twitter, Get Going and Get Growing A Step By Step Guide” book.
My Asexualise My Asexual Life YouTube channel has grown to over 150 subscribers.
I interviewed over 40 asexuals for my Asexual Perspectives, Love Life And Sex, ACElebration Of Asexual Diversity book and I am trying hard to get the Kindle version published before Christmas.
I completed a Marketing course (still got to action all the modules now though).
I learnt how to use IMovie and can now create my own videos.
I did an’ Inspire With Video Materclass’, so I can create my own inspirational videos.
I completed a “Your Next Bold Move” course at the beginning of this year and it helped me to plan and be more productive for the rest of the year.
What first have you had this year (2016) and what firsts are coming for you next year?
Wow! 6 years to this day I started Blogging on this blog – Quirky Books. This photo is actually taken from a video I did recently for my other channel.
Thank you for all your support; love, kindness, and friendship you have shown me. This blog is one of the very best things I ever started in my life, it helped me changed my life to be much more positive, and helped in my recovery from depression that I had for years prior to 2012, and I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me. I love you to bits xx
I want you to be one of the first to know – that I am changing my QuirkyAcademy.com into an online training centre for Entrepreneurs, Start-ups and Creatives. So if you are interested in any of those areas, and as creative writers I expect you are – then watch out in the next few months for courses to empower and accelerate your learning in all aspects of these areas.
Keep writing, keep being quirky, and keep being you xx
