Positive? Not Always…

Tripping Through Treacle

I try and stay positive, I really do. When I shared that I’d recently been confirmed as having secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) on my blog and on Instagram, everybody was absolutely brilliant, giving me so much support and praising me for working hard to keep going, despite the dark diagnosis. And I am generally positive. As regular readers will know, I do try to keep as healthy as I can be through diet, exercise, and meditation and I truly think that doing that helps to keep my mood stable to some degree. However, as positive as I can be, I can also be downright miserable and grumpy and sad and scared (just ask my husband). It’s not something I like to share too much on social media; it makes me feel so much better when I share uplifting content rather than depressing content. But that’s not the true face…

A Little Blog Advice I’ve Found Useful

Danny's iphone 022You may have heard bloggers talk about adding a Featured Image or you may have noticed blog posts show up in your Reader feed with vivid, bright and eye-catching photos.  Featured images are in my top-3 most important aspects of creating a post, but why do so many bloggers not use a Featured Image?

I use FIs for a couple of basic reasons.

  1.  A Featured Image is going to draw eyes to your post.  Without an image you post will show as a text-based post and text based advertising simply is invisible.  I try to use my own images when I can and I try to use the same 3 images so readers recognize my posts from everyone else.
  2. A Featured Image is going to stick with your post regardless of where it goes.  Meaning if someone reblogs your post, your image is always present and constantly advertising your content.

It is a simple practice that can make a big difference.  When using FIs try not to use other people’s images unless you have permission.  Flickr, Shutterstock and others offer free images you can use if you don’t own your own.  But don’t go to Google and use images as it is a form of theft.

Sometimes it’s the simple things that can make big differences in your page.

Blog Networking: 9/14/17

Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most.  But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.

You will find links in this post to help eliminate some of the work; all you have to do is LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW others. The more you network with other blogs, the more other blogs will network with you!

Back on the Path

I’m a planner. I like planning things out, making my “to-do” list, and checking things off. There’s only one problem — life (and fibromyalgia) doesn’t care about my planning and “to-do” list. That has become quite evident in the last week and a half.

I spent Labor Day weekend and the first two days of last week going back and forth to the hospital, basically acting as patient advocate for a family member and a go-between for family/caregivers and the hospital staff (I’m the only family member who lives in the area). I was happy to do it; there are so many things I can’t do now, I’m always happy to do the things I can. It does take a toll on my body though, and honestly, by Tuesday, I was completely worn out. The only thing keeping me going was prayer.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we were busy…
