When I first started blogging, while I was writing my debut novel, I was so uncensored. I had very few followers and so I posted to my blog regularly (LIKE THREE TIMES A WEEK, EASILY!) without fretting too hard over grammatical and typographical errors. I didn’t own licences to any stock photography and I didn’t understand how to use the free feature on WordPress to add images, so my posts had very few photos, if any at all. Life was simple. The people who followed me, joined my blog on their own accord, by no request, force or pressure to do so. I knew, if they were following me it was because they actually cared about what I had to say. I didn’t blow time hanging out on Facebook and Twitter (as much), although I did really enjoy Twitter before the auto-bots ruined it over there. I spent time writing my book, learning about publishing, and sharing my results. And you know what? PEOPLE LOVED IT!
Have you heard? There’s a long list of authors coming to Toronto, Canada, for an amazing book event on June 13, 2015. What started out as part of the Angels in Sinners Tour, later changed to Live the Hype, is now being dubbed SEXY IN THE CITY.
Don’t miss out! 45+ bestselling authors in one room! You must come to see all this beautiful swag and find some new authors to fan-girl over!
Eh, this is Canada!
It’s no secret, I’m from Canada. But did you know that I sell my books primarily in USD? Pre-order today for fabulous savings.
I may be talking about myself and I may be talking about others…you know who you are. One thing is for sure: we could all handle giving up these seven things this year!
My biggest challenge???
Procrastination is sitting at the number one spot for a reason!
As an author, social media is my number one no no. Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Pinterest, Goodreads and now Instagram, OH MY!! Hours can fly by and I can chat with fabulous people, learn incredible things and have a good old laugh, but nothing more is had but a good time. Productivity is minimal, while my list of things to do grows infinitely.
Which of the above are you guilty of? Come on, don’t be shy. :-)

Back in November when I was using a Blackberry Smartphone I have to admit: it was totally useless. Smartphone? I think not. Sure BBM was awes and I didn’t know how I would live without it, but here I am… still kickin’. Too bad I can’t say the same for my “smartphone”. RIP
