Steve’s Sunday Selection August 22, 2010

Gosh, is it Sunday already, hard to believe how time is flying, and I shall be soon too.  I am about to leave this island of my ancestors and travel to the land of peace, cheese, watches and chocolate.  Unless, of course, the “Bobbies” get me and throw me in the Tower of London first.

For this Sunday’s theme we will start with some ways to make yourself a better “you” and finally we will roll around to ways to improve your blog/business.  Mary starts us off with a discussion on the value of community.  Since you are all now ready to support your fellow community members I urge you to go and check out Karen’s now eBook: 31 Days to a better you.

Now that we all understand the value of community what are we going to do with ourselves?  Well Preeti  gives us a great idea of what we should not be doing: Watch less TV.  Since you are not spending your time on TV, in case you missed it, here is an article I did this week that will show you a great way to spend your time; learning.  If you want to challenge yourself you could be like Belinda and try to make it through the day without complaining.

For something a little different Evelyn gives us some ideas on how to shed a few pounds with 22 ways to lose weight.

Now it is time to make the slow turn from improving yourself to improving your blog/business.

In this first post I link to a link of links that links to links.  Are you confused?  I certainly think I confused myself there.  But the topics of the links are anything but confusing.  Joe has created a link with some motivational speeches from TED. And a few that are just as good but not part of TED.  It includes incredible speeches by Tony Robbins, Richard St. John, Simon Sinek, Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs and a few more.   If you haven’t seen these and have a little time check them out.  If you don’t have time, make it.  These are some of the most successful people in the world talking about how to achieve success.  Definitely worth a listen!

Next up we have Murray teaching us some ways to become an expert.  Once you understand what it means and takes to be an expert, Heather will discuss ways to brand yourself, your blog and even your signature.  A true expert should be well branded.

Finally we go into the realm of some “specific” useful information.  Kathy shows us a neat little trick to find blogs that utilize “keywordluv” in case you are looking for good sites to comment on.  Before any wiseguy or wisegal points it out.  No.  I do not have keywordluv yet myself.   I have been thinking about it though…

Finally I end with a question for you all.  Kristi is contemplating purchasing an IPAD, and wondering if the IPAD is good for blogging?  She gives a pretty nice collection of links for both pro and con.  I have been debating this question myself for a while.  I have an Iphone, a kindle and a small laptop.  Is there any reason to buy an IPAD outside of the “cool factor”?  If you have one or do not and you have a reason for or against let me know in the comments below.

Take Action. Get Results.

  1. Gosh, thanks so much for the shout of my new ebook, Scott.

    I love the theme of the post, rather than just an assortment of articles from around the blogosphere.

    There are some great finds in here.

    If you have an iphone and a netbook, why would need an iPad? I think you’re covered with what you have now. Besides, you’ve managed quite well to write, publish, and manage your site without one so far. Just my $0.2.

  2. Yeah,

    I think you are right about the IPAD, that is my thinking too… it just seems so…cool. LOL

    lad to mention your new eBook and glad you liked a little bit of “theme”


  3. Hi Steve,

    Thank you for including my post! I will be checking out the other blogs too!

    I like your blog! I especially like that you’ve included a recommended page. That’s what I think I’ll do to get rid of the ad blocks.

    Take care,


    • Glad to include your post Evelyn. I have seen you guest blogging a lot and have greatly enjoyed your writing.

      Yeah I like the “recommended” page. If anyone is interested in stuff that I think are decent both affiliate link and non. I figure they will find their way their sooner or later. They main thing is it cleans up the main page greatly.
