People often ask me why I do not reblog content from other bloggers. The answer is simple. Since this is my blog, I prefer to keep my content original. However, there is more to it. I never knew how I would make those reblogs fair. The last thing I want to do is offend someone by not reblogging their content.
It was never because I felt scared to promote my fellow bloggers. In fact, I consistently shared links to some of my favorite authors as I nominated them in my ‘Awards’ posts. Last year, I went a step further and shared a link to the person who was most engaging in the comment section every month. (You can find all those posts from the top Menu under ‘Awards.’)
This year, however, I decided to take the plunge and start reblogging other people’s content. While there were hard metrics implemented for the Brain Stormer Award, there are none for the Spotlight. It is all very subjective. The only rule – you must have posted something in that month.
So go ahead and post something. I might feature one of your posts on my site at the end of March!
Do you ever struggle with self-discipline? Mimi has all the answers. Below is the excerpt from one of her blog posts and a link to the entire post on her site.
We aren’t born with self-discipline. This is a skill we acquire through daily practice and repetition. It seems like an extraordinarily difficult aptitude, but as a matter of fact, it’s simpler than you think.
Are you a disciplined person? If you asked me this question some time ago I would definitely answer no. I always imagined the discipline as being mercilessly consistent with a decision taken. With a goal to be accomplished. With a dream to come true. I imagined a person who never gives up. Who always stands up. Who’s strong, resistant and relentless. I’m not such a person. I’m too much far from it. That is why the concept of getting self-discipline always sounded unachievable for me.
Please take a look around Mimi’s blog and see if there is anything else that might be helpful on your life’s journey. Do not forget to tell her ‘Hi!’ from me.
