Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book Author Gets Excited!


The moment has finally arrived when I am going to be a published Author very soon. I am so excited! I just launched a new Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book – Author Sandra Bellamy Facebook page. It would be amazing if you could Like it as I haven’t secured the page name yet – I need at least 25 Likes to get the name, sometimes it’s more, and I want to put the page name in my book, so the race is on. I believe this book is life changing for me and I hope it will be for a ton of others too. Here is the Facebook link www.facebook.com/pages/Break-Through-The-Barriers-Of-Redundancy-Book-Author-Sandra-Bellamy Although my book is aimed at redundant workers, because it takes a holistic view of redundancy and getting back into work, it really does tackle a lot of well-being, confidence building and self-love issues, before dealing with the practicalities of job-hunting.

I have to check all of my hyperlinks work and then convert the manuscript to HTML for Kindle. Then -oooohhhhhh!!! It will be published Author time!!! So in these next few days/week – I should be able to proudly say that Sandra Bellamy is a published Author of Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work: – An A-Z ‘How to’ guide.

For those of you who don’t like to watch videos or who can’t for some reason, here is a translation of my Quirky Books TV Video excitement:

Hi, it’s Sandra from http://www.quirkybooks.wordpress.com. I am going to be a published Author soon and I cannot wait! I spent four nights trying to reformat my book for Kindle and had no joy, and I think I have finally cracked it with the Table Of Content hyperlinks .. and I am so excited because I am just day, hours, away from being a published Author and it’s my dream. After two and a half years of making this book – Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back In To Work – An A-Z How To Guide, I shall be finally there. Wow! It’s going to be incredible. I cannot wait! I am just so excited! It’s going to change my life, it’s going to help a ton of people and I just love it! I love helping people. I love writing. Oh my gosh to just be writing all the time again, was amazing. I took some time out of my day job – holiday – to do my writing of my book and I was spending ten hour shifts doing my writing and editing and amending, and it’s really hard work, really really hard work, but it’s so beautiful, I felt so at peace and at one with life and it’s absolutely fantastic! I have just been doing Facebook training with someone for their business, because I do Facebook and Twitter and Blogging training for business and that’s all great too, so you may see some books in the future, or a book about one or more of those subjects. More Quirky Books on the way. This Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is incredible, it’s a complete A-Z guide for getting back into work and it takes a holistic view of redundancy. It’s all about going back to your inner being to the roots of who you are and what you were born to do before all the noise got in the way, the kids, the mortgage, marriage. Or just when life take it’s ups and downs and doesn’t quite go to plan, how you would want it too. But it’s amazing. It’s a really good book, even though I’ve written it and I say so myself and I look at it and think – ‘Did I really write that?’ But yeah I’m really proud of it. I love it and I hope you’ll love it too. So Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book will be out soon and I am so excited. Thank you for being on this journey with me. I have a ton of Bloggers, Facebookers and Tweeters, who have followed my journey for quite some time now on getting this thing published. Love to you all X. I really appreciate it. Until next time, Embrace Your Quirky and each others. Bye.

Keep embracing your quirky and believing that your dreams can come true.

Thanks for all of your love and support during my journey into print – Well into a Kindle at the very least!

Write soon

Sandra

 

 

What are the advantages and disadvantages of writing guest blog articles for businesses?


Hi everyone

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting quite as many blog posts on this blog lately. That is for two main reasons:

1) I also write regular blog posts for http://www.beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com and http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk and a News and Inspiration page for http://www.beatredundancyblues.com

2) I have recently written a guest blog article for Sage One and I am currently writing one for Pay Justice.

So what are the advantages of writing guest blog articles for businesses?

1) It’s a challenge, having to come up with new and fresh content that will fit in with the content of their previous blog articles and be suitable for their customers.

2) Your creative muscles are stretched.

3) Your writing skills are improved.

4) It boosts your profile as a writer.

5) Increased SEO for your sites, if the businesses put links to your sites at the end of your articles.

6) The articles show off your expertise in a given subject or range of topics. This is fantastic if you are a non-fiction writer as it enhances your credibility.

What are the disadvantages?

1) It can be very time consuming and mean spending less time on your own writing projects.

2) Not only do you need to do research for the article content but you also need to do research about the company whom the blog article is for. You need to find out what the company’s mission is, what they are about, what their point of view is and what previous blog article content has been published. Again, this can be very time consuming.

3) Often there will be no payment for guest blog articles.

4) You may receive a very vague brief or no brief at all, as to what to write about. This means you will need to use your research of the company, as previously described and your imagination, to come up with a blog article idea and create some great content from it.

5) When you write the blog article content, you need to ensure that there is no conflict of interest with your own online profile, business, or blog content.

6) You need to target the article to the said company’s target market, not your own. Although you may find there are some overlaps.

I hope you find this information useful for your own writing ventures and to assess whether or not, blog article writing for businesses, is right for you.

Until next time, write soon.

Sandra
