Moving forward in a positive direction

My grandfather used to say two things to me. They stuck with me. The first was the opening of a conversation every single time, “what is bothering you?” He would say. My grandfather was someone I used as a sounding board, as a guide and as someone to think through problems with. Then grandpa would look at me after I had expressed the problem, and he would say, “so what are you going to do about it?” That started the second conversation. The first conversation is one that everyone has complaining about were whatever was happening was at the moment. The second part of the conversation was to begin building a path to a solution and making changes that would ultimately fix the problem.

Fun Author Tip: go back into your old posts and share them via social media!

One of my favorite speeches of all time was the Inaugural address of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. He said many things, but to me, the lines that stuck the lines that I recall oft are “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” That drives me back to the last couple of days, talking about building SEO for posts using titles and tags. Are there other things authors can do to increase the views of their posts. One of the things I have been doing is sharing old posts over the last month or so. During that time, I have learned a lot of interesting things about old posts. So a new offer from me. In the comments of this post, share a post you are proud of. I will read it and promote it.

Fun Author Tip: The best articles share a piece of you!

I have several upcoming cool tech reviews:

  1. Scribbit the whiteboard wall robot.
  2. Chasing Dory, another underwater ROV
  3. Airtame 2.0

Thanks as always to all who read. Share that post you are proud of from your past posts. Let’s see if we can change the number of views it has!

  2. Rather than only think positive, I would say you achieve far more with, “Generative” thinking, use the positive and negative thinking like alternating electric current to move forward.

    It allows you to use the negative and turn it into a positive thing. We do it all the time in our daily lives, you learn step by step at school but they didn’t teach me then, to thing lateral thinking.

    If you cant immediately think of a solution put it aside do something else and then come back and tackle the problem. Often we are too close and need to stand back.

  3. I cannot think of anyone particular now. As soon as I get the chance I want to go through my Virily posts and get to the earlier ones to see what I was posting about then. If I find a post that would do well to get reposted how do I do that?
