Success And Celebrations

There’s been a lot to celebrate around here lately. We’ve just recently posted our 100th Do You Digg It! blog Celebrate Digg and The Secretreview, which happens (truly by chance) to coincide with Sean Rasmussen’s release of The Secret Law of Attraction. In celebration, weekend posts featured some great success blogs, like Pastor Richard Onebamoi’s Self Improve Blog, a blog featuring the secret Law of Attraction and other classic empowerment and wealth and success writers. Today we’ll take a minute out to feature a few others from our blog review archives (and of course give you the link to the book, too!).

Blogging Success

Success, wealth, and personal development have been a primary focus of blog reviews here on Do You Digg It! Our very first post was one of those, in fact. Check it out here and read our review of AngesBiz, a blog dedicated to wealth and success.

To keep you growing and succeeding, here are some other blogs of interest as we celebrate success.

• B. Smith’s Wealth & Wisdom blog leverages Vincent Pareto’s 80/20 principle to clarify wealth and discover the secrets to success.
TR Coach will take you from where you are to where you want to be while exploring the theories of universal law that apply to wealth and success.
• Last but not least, we revisit our review of Benny Greenberg’s Ya-ttitude.com, one of our most inspiring and most popular, comment-provoking posts.

The Secret Of Success, A Freebie For Our Readers

We promised a link to the newest free success eBook from Sean Rasmussen, and here it is (courtesy of SeanRasmussen.com, Sean’s success blog—non-monetized for your enlightenment and reading pleasure).

Friday marked the release of The Secret Law of Attraction at the blog. This is a revised and updated version of the Wallace Wattles classic, The Science of Getting Rich. It’s been very well received and gotten some great positive comments thus far. Stop by Sean’s blog for your own free copy and let us know what you think!

Self Improvement For Normal People

Self Improvement Journal

Surely you’ve guessed that this blog, too, is one dedicated to self improvement. Chris’s blog is a bit different, though, being dedicated to self improvement but in a much more ground-up, growth-oriented fashion.

Self Improvement Journal – Why You Should Go

A lot of the success and improvement blogs that we feature here have at their heart the universal laws like The Secret Law of Attraction or the principles of wealth and success. This blog, too, includes posts of that nature, but it is also more rounded to include other topics like health, diet and exercise, community, and environment.

One of the most enticing things about Self Improvement Journal, though, is its development. This blog started off in true web log style, as a personal journal to share with others as Chris worked through the many aspects of self- and life-improvement. Watching that growth and the development of the blog lends a very personal and grounded feel to the blog, making it one that relates well with its “normal people” audience.

Summing Up Self Improvement Journal

Because Chris has been so open from the beginning with this journey of self improvement, the blog has morphed and grown in many ways. It is now largely a blog about wealth and success, but it has never lost its personal roots, or its very well-rounded nature.

Go here to check out Self Improvement Journal.

Self Improve Blog

We’re combining efforts this weekend to celebrate the release of Sean Rasmussen’s latest eBook, The Secret Law of Attraction. In celebration of its release Do You Digg It is featuring established and promising empowerment blogs, while continuing our efforts to expand our international blog rolls.

Today our combined efforts take us to the review of our first Belgian-based blog, the Self Improve Blog of Brussels blogger Richard Onebamoi (a blog migrated and combined from his original, Success Power Points). Richard’s mission through his collection of blogs is to “inspire your performance, expand your imagination, cultivate your dreams, help you discover, develop and maximize your God given potential.”

Self Improve Blog – Why You Should Go

Pastor Richard Onebamoi combines several aspects of self and faith in his works as a success facilitator. He brings a deep spirituality and faith, and marries them to leading philosophies and universal laws of success from both historical and modern perspectives. Inspiration for posts comes from people like Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles, and the much recognized Anthony Robbins, as well as Richard’s own studies and experiences. These are balanced with practical articles and “how-to’s” for life and success.

Summing Up Self Improve Blog

Pastor Onebamoi’s Self Improve Blog is just one of the vehicles he uses to achieve his mission, but it is one of his collective works that has the widest appeal as a blog dedicated to self improvement, where it all starts.

Inspiration & Motivation Blog

Today our round-the-world blog reviews take us to Bandung City in Indonesia to the blog of Arswino Sonata. One of Arswino’s favorite activities is sharing with people and inspiring them to live a happy, motivated life of success. This young and promising blog is his means to that end.

Inspiration & Motivation – Why You Should Go

We do see a lot of blogs in the blogosphere that are set up as motivational personal development blogs. To be sure, we have seen many here, not least of all because mindset and motivation are of primary importance to our host, Sean Rasmussen. It seems that each of these blogs have a slightly different take on the secret to life’s success, and a slightly different package for its delivery. Arswino’s blog, though, is truly unique.

Inspiration & Motivation aims to inspire mainly through storytelling. Arswino Sonata has a gift for locating stories with great morals for living, and it is these that he chooses to use to best illustrate his thoughts and beliefs.

Summing Up Inspiration & Motivation

Arswino’s approach to motivational blogging is thoughtful and entertaining all at the same time. It’s an easy and enjoyable place to visit, one that makes easy, short work of inspiring your day.

Pentad

Pentad author Tamera Daun has certainly lived a full life. From a Washington university to nearly 20 years in Stavanger, Norway and back to Houston, Texas, Tamera has experienced life across nations and cultures. She has also experienced life across professions, starting out with intentions of law school, and then turning to nursing and now landing as an author and consultant and Reiki Master/Teacher. The culmination of all of these experiences has made Tamera Daun what she is today, and built in her a unique and eclectic resume that has grown into her work through her practice, Pentad, and the similarly named blog.

Pentad – Why You Should Go

Tamera came to her practice and authorship by the long road, but it is that road that has given her her level of insight and experience into the human condition. Her practice and her blog deal in matters of personal development, relationships, love, and wellness with the focus of simplifying love and relationships to make them happier and healthier. Her approach and experience are unique, translating into the real-life, down-to-earth messages that she delivers through her blog.

Summing Up Pentad

Pentad offers practical posts of a personal nature. The content here spans a range of issues and a range of emotions, from funny and humorous to emotional and sad, all in the interest of making shorter work of developing ourselves into the most fulfilled beings we can be.

Zenspace

“Find Yourself – Lose Your Way – An online garden for peaceful introspective”

If this sounds like a place you’d like to find yourself, or lose yourself, then a visit to Zenspace is in order.

Zenspace has been described to me as “an ongoing love letter to our planet.” That description is probably about as close as you can get in a few short words. Zenspace is the blog maintained by the Citizen of Earth, one who remembers times that were both more imbued with peace and love and tumultuous at the same time. But this Citizen remembers the promise of those times, and maintains this blog as a way to fulfill that promise.

Zenspace – Why You Should Go

This space of peace and contemplation is filled with posts to remind you of the only home we have, and remind us of our responsibility towards it. Through prose, poetry, and pictures, Citizen of Earth creates a quiet space for us to renew our dedication to our one planet and grow to appreciate it in the hopes that he can motivate us to treat it a little better personally, and a lot better collectively.

Summing Up Zenspace

Zenspace serves as a gentle reminder to us all of things promised and things passed, and things future, too. Visit Zenspace to stay centered and stay inspired to do your part for the appreciation and preservation of our larger global home.

Putting Words To The Quotes That Inspire

Quotes in Our Own WordsWhere to Find Quotes…In Our Own Words:
Blog URL: http://inourownwords.blogspot.com/
Category: Positivity, Personal Development

Quotes…In Our Own Words

Sometimes the best blog concepts come from the simplest of ideas, as we’ve seen with blogs like Comical Comments and the like, and as we are about to see with Quotes…In Our Own Words (yes, this is about to be one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” moments).

Quotes…In Our Own Words is a blog that takes the inspirational quote just a step further, and turns it into not only a motivational tool, but also a subject of thoughtful discussion.

Quotes…In Our Own Words – Why You Should Go

Dexter the Quote Guy is a person who just “likes to spread a positive word.” And like most people, he finds that one of the most direct and meaningful ways to do that it to borrow the words of those who have said it best—the people from history and modern times who have produced the most concise, pointed, and hard-hitting quotes to inspire and teach.

What Dexter has done with these quotes on his blog is used them as a launching-point for discussion and positive thinking. With each post Dexter delivers one or a few quotes of interest (and from time to time stories and links of importance to make a difference in the world). He then talks a little about what each means to him, and opens the floor for discussion and growth among his readers. His inspiration grew from an interest in the Law of Attraction, and so his theme follows much along the same lines towards success, fulfillment, and positive living.

Summing Up Quotes…In Our Own Words

Sometimes the best way to say something is to let someone who’s already said it best say it all. And sometimes the way to make that into more is to share it and add a few thoughts of your own. That is what Dexter has done on his blog, a place where you can go for a regular fix of positive thinking.

Let Us Get To Know You

If there is one thing that stands out as I make my rounds around the blogosphere, it is that many people are not taking full advantage of the tools their blogs offer to them and their readers (including us here at Digg It, mea culpa). The one most under-used tool that I see as a blog reviewer is the profile or “About Us” page.

Why Don’t We Get Personal?

I would venture to guess that the reasons that people don’t pay much attention to profile and About pages are something along the lines of

• They want to remain anonymous to an extent
• They don’t know what to say, or struggle with how to explain their blogs
• They are unsure when the blog is constructed where it will really go, and then forget about these pages once they have a firm direction
• They think readers already know what the blog is about—they’re here aren’t they?

These may all be very valid, at least understandable, reasons not to write a profile of your blog. But now may be a good time to reassess, and here are some of my personal thoughts on why you might consider it.

Building Your Profile Page, Why It Matters

When your blog doesn’t have a profile page, it can be very difficult for readers to tell at a glance what your blog is about. And no, you can’t just assume that it is obvious. Sometimes it takes sifting through many posts before a newcomer can “get” what your blog is about. That’s time that I put in as a reviewer, but as you can imagine, it’s time that the average web surfer is not as likely to put in. We’ve all heard about the nature of the web surfer—they are a flighty bird with a low attention-span, who wants instant gratification when they alight at a site (yes, I include my own self in this category, mea culpa again—that is, unless I’m reviewing a blog!). To increase your chances of gaining that new reader, give them what they want—a quick and concise way to learn about your blog and find out if it fulfills their needs.

It’s not enough to assume that the intent of your long-standing blog is obvious. Most of your readers probably have not been with you from the beginning, even if you have a very large readership. Blogs take time to build, as any blogger knows, and it could be six months, a year, or more before the majority of your blog’s readers actually find you. So no, that first post you put up to introduce yourself and your blog is probably not sufficient, and probably was not or will not be read by the bulk of the people who pass through your blog.

A Blog With Personality

Another reason to take advantage of your profiling tools, and I’m sure there are many others (do feel free to tell me about them in the comments below) is to add that touch of personality. Blogging is, after all, personal—it’s the reason the medium has been so successful, putting faces and personalities on an otherwise neutral information highway. When people can get to know something about you, at least the parts relevant to your blog, they feel a connection and camaraderie with you and your work, and feel more vested in it as a result, making them want to keep coming back to keep up with a friend or colleague.

It’s easy to take profiling for granted, but it’s easy to take advantage of it, too. Consider the ways that your blog and your readers might benefit from the simple addition or use of a profile or About page, or even just a side-bar description.

And now it’s your turn—what do you think? Why else is a profile important to a blog? Or do you respectfully disagree?

A Little Weekend Love

It Might Be LoveWhere to Find It Might Be Love:
Blog URL: http://www.itmightbelove.com/
Category: Love, Relationships

It Might Be Love

Weekends seem to be the time for bloggers to spread their linky love, but this blog-love post is of a slightly different sort. This time we’re reviewing a blog that is actually about love, in all its forms and incarnations.

It Might Be Love – Why You Should Go

Anything that you can do to grow loving relationships in your life is worth while, and is sure to improve your life. This blog, written primarily by creator and writer Chelle with help from her contributing authors (like Damien Riley of Damien at The Speed of Life), covers many topics related to love.
One of the top focuses of the blog, as you might expect it to be, is love as it applies to dating, relationships, and marriage. As Chelle points out, though, love exists in many things, and so the blog also includes posts to help you learn to love or appreciate the love you have for other things, like tasks and hobbies, work, life, and generally “…all things related to love.” Chelle says, “Love can be just about anything – from romantic love to family and friendship love to the love we have for things like ice cream and music.”

It Might Be Love posts range from discussions and advice to the finer points that help keep your love alive. “It Might Be Love provides advice articles, dating and relationship resources, creative gift ideas, love poetry and quotes, music and book reviews, and everything else we love in between.”

Summing Up It Might Be Love

It Might Be Love is a place to explore the concept of love, and also to cultivate your own. Come here for everything love-related, whether that is to find ways to grow love in your life, or to finally learn how to buy appreciated, meaningful gifts for the people you love. And if you’ve got something to share, as Chelle says, don’t be shy! Guest posters and contributors are all welcome.
