Xmas holidays and new year resolutions

First symptoms

I was looking after my kids in those days, working from home and having 5 minutes rest.

Both are not usual things for me at the moment!

I mean, having 5 minutes rest as I have two awesome girls (2 years and an half named Emma and the little one, Guya, who is 17 months old now) and telecommuting from home, as I usually work in an office in Milan city center.

My motto is “carpe diem” and I was really enjoying the moment: being in what I was doing while my kids for just three steps away from me, playing and laughing.

That’s why I started reading about blogs and as always happens, the web is a place full of presents and free content.

In this post I will share with you many interest things I found, and links, and resources in order to create a blog from the scratch, how to find the right idea to start, how create graphics and, as both you and me like to earn money from our writing passion, I will share you links to how make money blogging.


Reasons behind mental selfie

I like the idea to find time and space to write about people, my keyboard, mac,blog
personal interest as Psychologist, to share useful content and ideas coming from my life as much as my experience in my daily work.

I love running and set up new target is something that gives me the boost to do things better.

So if you think to start your new blog today, I think this Melissa Belanger’s guide and byregina.com one will be helpful to know the basics.

Find your passion and what to blog about

What do you want to talk about? What are you ready to write about also in days when you are tired, maybe after work, maybe when your family is sleeping? An interest article from Any Lynn Andrews can be found here.

Style it and make it yours

I think one of the best chance a blog gives us is to talk about what you think in a personal way, being yourself and give to your blog the style you like the most. That’s why there will be a time when you will need some pictures and graphics.

pick your apple!I told you, the web is waiting for you with plenty of free gifts!

Just use the occasion!

My favourites are freeimages.com and pixabay.com

If you easily get distracted..

First: don’t worry!We have all been in that situation where you have many ideas to put on the paper, or to type on your keyboard, but thoughts, kids, noise don’t help you getting out the best from yourself.

Second: Another gift from the web is on its way!

Visit this website ommwriter.com you can find an easy fix, with proper sounds and writing environment that will help you for sure!

 OmmWriter is a staple for those who want to take the distraction out of writing,
and its app is particularly good for cutting away
the clutter of word-processing programs on the iPad and the Mac.

Just be careful not to forget that appointment, to take the saucepan off the cooker or to pick kids up from school! 😀

don’t forget the kids lol
We’ll find out in the next episode, stay tuned!
