Around The Web Inspiration (My Ramblings)

Filed under: Creating Success,Dreams,Inspiration — Laura R @ 5:45 PM

Before we get to this post – THIS JUST IN – I am a WINNER! Cue the music and VIDEO 
(it is very exciting!)
To see what I won you will have to view Deborah’s previous post.
I almost missed out because our electricity went off today – no computer!
See more of her beautiful, OOAK Artworks here.

Sometimes when you think you want to know more on a subject you find you are not alone.
If you are very lucky you find people who have done much of the research for you.
If you are not as lucky, you find them late at night and you want to keep reading and reading but your eyes will no longer stay open and focused.

A few of the places I need to revisit but NOT after a very long day include:

Late Blooming Entrepreneurs   This was the topic on my mind
along with overweight celebrities, but that is a post for another blog.

Isn’t  Timothy McGee the name of the author agent on NCIS?
Is anybody else concerned about his extreme weight loss?
Well, the name may be what caught my eye, but this Tim McGee’s
 offer of videos
 is what made me click.  I mentioned in a previous Creating Success post that I was finding great videos I want to share with you.

Raam Dev  Essays  including The Circle of Life :

No matter how difficult our situation or how many challenges we may face, there’s no point in wasting time soaking ourselves in depression.
We all struggle and experience loss but it’s our attitude that determines how we live,  not our circumstances.  

A Big Creative YES  including How To Pick ONE Thing…

” Where you always seem to be drawn to the big new idea, the latest exciting thoughts and plans, that seem to promise such creative adventure and fulfillment…  it’s increasingly hard to stick with our creative projects as we’re literally bombarded with distractions and temptations…”

Kindle Nation Daily   included several of my favorite words like FREE and books. 

Blogging For Dollars, How I Became A Full Time Blogger, on the site A-List Blogging Bootcamps.
To be honest I was already too tired to digest this, but I want to mark it so I can go back.
This site is from Zen Habits author Leo Babauta, who has a new e-book and a pretty sweet deal for bloggers willing to be affiliates and sell it through their sites.
If you are like me and like FREE previews, he gives you that also on Scribd.  But I digress… 
I was eating a LOT of non pareils.

Terry Odell’s blog,  which I could spend hours on.  I enjoy her story of how she became a writer
“by mistake.”
  (The things we do to connect with our kids!) Plus she uses that FREE word too.  

Just added: more FREE BOOKS  at

I also want to recommend and give a shout out to a woman who I find inspiring and enjoy touching base with as many days of the week as possible, Karyn Greenstreet.  Recently she wrote about making a professional Facebook page and I know many of you have done this or are seriously thinking about doing this. 

This was not the post I wanted to write but these were things that were on my mind and then today our electricity was out for quite a while.  It was a beautiful bright sunny day, not even overly windy.   And I got the very exciting news about my WIN  so this is a peek into all the crazy things rattling around in my head today. 

I have so much more I want to share!

Oh No!  I did not add any pictures!   Wait…..

Since the dogs will expect me to get up with them in 4 hours I need to sleep a while. In the morning I will check out a Wednesday Working Mom hop that asks questions.  This week she tackles the question of getting support, which has always been a concern of mine.

    • I hope you did not mind, since it was just a tease. I really want to introduce my friends and readers to your site.

      • I don’t mind at all! You’re more than welcome to take and republish anything from my site — everything is “Uncopyright”. 🙂 Words are the conveyance of energy; to hoard energy and pretend we can “own” it is rather silly. Words can only reach their full potential by freeing them!
