Since finding my first real job out of college, I've started working with some of the most brilliant people I've ever met. It truly is a privilege. Even so, we all are very strong in our beliefs, opinions, and ideas, and that, of course, bleeds into our work. As I'm sure you can imagine, this … Continue reading 4 ways to change your work environment for the better
I have never been so well dressed in my life. As many of you know, I am still in college, though I just recently signed up for graduation in December (yay!), and being in college I've had the opportunity to join the English Honor Society: Sigma Tau Delta. This offers a wide range of opportunities for all college writers, and I definitely recommend joining if one ever has the opportunity to do so.

An introvert is someone who finds people, and interacting with them, to be physically and mentally draining, preferring to be alone to recharge. An introvert is not constantly in a state of depression and … Continue reading I’m an introvert, and I’m happy
I love my friends. I really and truly do, but for goodness sake, why do they always assume everything that is said or done is blog worthy? All of my friends and all of my family know I have a blog, but it's moments like this that I wish I had kept it a secret. … Continue reading “You should put this on your blog!” Sigh…
Yes, people like quality writing. High quality writing skills are wonderful, but they come with time and practice. We're not all born with the skills of Stephen King, and a blog is a wonderful jump off point. If you were to go back into my archives and read the oldest of the posts, I would … Continue reading Why you shouldn’t be scared of starting a blog, despite your writing level
Like I've said many times before, you want to have an over-arching theme to your blog. Having a single theme will gain you a constant following in the beginning, then you can add more diverse content, which will bring in even more viewers from that separate readership. Categories work wonders at this point, and since … Continue reading What adding fanfic has done for my website/blog

Now, I wanna focus on the main reason anyone should have a blog. The cherry on the sundae, the icing on the … Continue reading How to Consistently Generate New Blog Content and Posts
