A few months ago I was feeling uninspired (as we all do from time to time) and I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go with my blog. Experts were telling me to choose a niche and become an authority in my area. Yes, I’d tried that advice and I’d ended up changing my mind about the topic of my blog every month. Sometimes three times a month.
What I wanted was a blog that was going to grow and evolve with me. A blog that was for me, but was also a way to share my creativity with the world, reach out to people and improve my craft. At that time Susannah Conway announced her Blogging from the Heart course and it sounded perfect for me.
Shortly after morning sickness struck. I must admit that I didn’t get much out of the course because I was sick the whole time. Susannah’s words touched me and inspired me. They were about digging deeper and getting more personal, with lots of tips, stories and prompts. But I didn’t do much of the work. Even if I could make time for blogging, the topic closest to my heart at all times was what I could possibly eat and keep it down. Not very interesting. I’ve only just started getting some thoughts into my head that are not food-related and I’m slowly making my way through the course material. I’m hoping that my posts will become less censored, more heartful, more me by the time I’m finished.
Usually I’d wait until I could write a proper review. But I’m in a rush to get this out to you in case you want to join the course. The next course starts on 14th May and registration is open now.
I have one copy of the Blogging from the Heart ebook to give away.
The prize: the ebook version of Blogging from the Heart.
To enter: In the comments please share a link to your most heart-felt post related to love. Interpret it as you like, it can be about a person, an activity, a thing or just a general feeling. I will chose my favourite post and the author will win the ebook. Make me laugh, or make me cry, or both. I’m pregnant, I’m emotional, it should be easy.
I’ll have to add a condition here. Please be mindful of my situation. I have vivid imagination and I’m carrying a new human being that I want to surround with images of love. It doesn’t mean that posts have to be all happy and cheerful. Sad posts are ok, but only if they come from a place of love, not anger and fear. I want to give everyone a fair chance, but if I feel emotionally threatened by your post in any way I will not read it. Not now. I’m sorry.
One entry per person please!
What if you don’t have a blog but still want to participate? If you are trying to win this book, you are probably at least thinking of starting a blog. Why not start it this week? If that’s not possible, then please feel free to email me your post. Then once your blog is up you will have your first post ready to go.
Deadline to share your post: One week from now - 9 May 2012, Sydney time
Deadline for me to name the winner: It will depend on the number of entries. I want to give myself enough time to go through all the posts, so I’ll announce the date once the entries closed.
