12 STARTER TIPS ON HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF!!!

The general key to self improvement is analyzing yourself and your circumstances by writing it all down first, doing some research and writing it all down, and finally making a decision on what you would like to change and what you would like to stay the same and writing it all down.

If you don’t like writing things down then you will need an excellent memory to bypass this critical writing task. Writing it down will help you to THINK which is what most humans no longer do much of.

If you have nothing new to think about then you will just be impulsively rethinking what you already know and won’t be making any serious useful changes in your life.

Research: v. to investigate systematically

Make a list of healthy foods to eat. Research good or healthy foods if you don’t know where to start or what they are.

Make a list of your good and bad habits. Research good and bad habits if you don’t know where to start or what they are.

List your personality traits. Research personality traits or characteristics if you don’t know where to start or what they are.

Keep a diary of things that you do every day and about how much time you spend doing those things. After a month review your entries and find out what your priorities in life are by noting what you spend the most time at doing.

Write down important goals to do in a week, month, year, and five years from now. Research important goals if you don’t know where to start or what they are.

Google something which interests you or research interesting things to do, read, view, etc.

Learn to budget your money and time.

Take a free online course in your field.

Learn to do something new and useful with YouTube tutorials.

Write an e-book and self publish it if you enjoy writing and have a specialty.

The basic key to self improvement is – Find out detailed information about yourself or who you are and what you do. Then decide what you would like to be like, and what you would like to do that you are not doing already.

Finally have the courage, determination, and selfmotivation to make the changes in your life for hopefully the better. Courageously make those new goals and take action to make them a reality or achieve them.

Improve: v. to change a subset(s) so that it is more in (value and/or (goodness and or rightness)) and/or (quality and/or usefulness) and/or (desirability and/or health).

The change may be done by adding what is absent and/or needed and/or desired and/or by subtracting what is nonessential or undesirable

 *Search my encyclopedic blog since I have researched most of those many topics to some extent for you. eg. bad habits, good habits, characteristics, goals, healthy foods, etc.

Happy reading, writing, thinking, and doing!!!

My encyclopedic website with about 1200 evergreen truth blogs so far is one of the rare websites where searching by keyword can bring very rewarding results. I have written about most important topics in a dry unemotional way so the blogs may not be very entertaining but contain much factual information and is very rewarding for a logical mind. Click on the following link to get quick info on my website.

I love wildlife and wilderness almost as much as the truth and if you search by keyword SHARING you will find many blogs with inspirational pictures of wild animals, landscapes, waterfalls, interesting gifs, and even some extravagant modern architectural buildings.

If you have some free time on your hands and don’t know what to do then try roaming through my blog because it is a treasure trove of informative articles which you will seldom find elsewhere all in one location.

If you don’t know what may be of interest to you then try looking through my list of most popular blogs which should give you a pretty good idea of what other bloggers enjoyed the most.

THE TRUTH ABOUT WRITING

writing

The truth is that writing is unnatural and it is an artificial form of verbal communication which takes too many years to learn because of its complex grammatical structure. Writing is just an extension of aural communication and if we had perfect photographic and verbal memories we would not need writing or reading to communicate.

Writing is a crutch used to store information for future generations and it is not a very efficient tool to do so. There is a natural tendency for humans to rebel against reading and writing because it is so demanding and difficult and texting with abbreviations is just proof that language should be shortened, improved, and made more efficient.

Verbosity is boring and arduous since you can condense the information in most hundred page books, especially novels, into a few sentences or paragraphs. Reading and writing used to be the domain of the priestly powerful class and until writing and reading is made more efficient it should remain the domain of the elite class of humans gifted in its use.

Trying to convey emotion in writing with inaccurate similes, metaphors, superlative words, and exclamation points is inefficient and should be left to verbal communications.

Language is highly emotional with an absence of much logical thinking and it needs a serious update with logical definitions and usage without so many emotional words.

My evergreen truth book SCIENTIFIC THESAURUS is about 6000 logical definitions with suggestions on how language can be made more efficient with the use of only verbs, nouns, adverbs, and adjectives.

Writing and reading should be a dying profession for the masses until it becomes more efficient so that every teenager, even with a rather poor memory, can be well versed in language and can be smart logical communicators and not emotional illogical wrecks!!!!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT E-BOOKS

Kindle-2-front1

Is there a guarantee that if you input the exact title name that your e-book will appear first on the search page? No. A few of my unique titles do but most are lost in the shuffle or Amazon placement algorithm.

If you use your computer and input e-book followed by the title then you will get slightly better placement results. However, I used a different computer than my own and got poorer placement results so I suspect that Amazon is fine tuning the search results to the author’s computer.

When I first published my e-books in 2011, about 17 of them, I sold an average of 3 to 4 a month. Today, I am selling two to three a year so it seems that the placement of the books is constantly changing and gets worse the older that your book publishing date is.

Key words, ISBN number, and customer reviews of your e-books appear to have no different effects on the placement of your e-book when it is searched for.

I strongly suspect that money and a biased editorial staff at Amazon is the prime determining factor in the placement of your e-book in their search engine. Blockbuster celebrity books appear first and I am not sure what money deals Amazon makes with book publishers themselves to get better placement.

In three years after publishing 17 e-books I have made about $100 from selling them. Not very encouraging statistics for the independent e-book self-publisher!!!!!! I also published with Barnes and Noble and got similar results.

It seems that celebrities with a hundred thousand followers are the only ones making money in the book publishing business these days unless you have written an overpriced text book which many schools are using.

Reading is also becoming a lost pastime with the younger generation so it seems that most book authoring will be a dead financially unrewarding profession in the near future.

Rare inventive authors create buzz for their book and reach over a hundred thousand potential customers. However, if you are laid back with a handful of followers then you will make almost no money at all e-book publishing!!!!!!

COMMON SENSE is a revolutionary book of about 800 pages for $3. It appears on approximately page 6 if you search by title so I strongly suspect the book is being censored by the Amazon editorial staff and it is not the placement algorithm’s fault.

If publishing an e-book boosts your ego, improves your writing, or if you want to leave a legacy for your offspring and grandchildren then it is not a total waste of time.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BLOGGING

blogging requires passion and authority

Great, you have decided to try blogging!

Why do you want to blog?

I want to share my life’s mundane experiences with like-minded humans.

I want to share my passion or passions with others who have similar passions.

I am an expert in my field and want to create a huge following and eventually make money writing a book about it.

I want to make easy money selling my money making scam to gullible humans.

I want to share my knowledge with others and change the world for the better.

I love to write and express my thoughts on subjects which interest me.

If you want to write about mundane daily experiences in your life then you will find that no one really cares. Your article will only be exposed to the world for about 6 hours every time you publish one and hope for a like response or comment.  Avoid the inevitable disappointment of poor feedback and try to find friends on Facebook or other social media instead to chat with.

If you have a passion for something like food, exercise, photography, nature, fashion, cars, etc. then you will find other passionate humans but they will all be amateurs like yourself with rather little to offer and most of them will probably only have written a handful of blogs. You may get lucky and find a friend with a similar passion somewhere in the world whom you might eventually like to meet in person.

If you are an expert in your field and want to get a boatload of interested followers who will pay for your professional services then you will fail.  You will soon run out of interesting blogs to write unless you reblog the same articles a thousand times to get a handful of interested individuals during your approximate 6 hour exposure worldwide each time you publish.

Money making scams offering easy money making schemes duped many bloggers in the past but bloggers are getting wise and fewer of them are becoming suckers so you won’t succeed in duping very many out of their hard earned dollars.

If you want to practice your writing skills or just write to relieve stress then blogging is the ideal platform for you but you won’t get much satisfying feedback from readers.

I want to share my unique knowledge and viewpoints about truth with others and change the world for the better.

The above reason is why I am still blogging and not giving up yet with about 150 daily visitors worldwide to my evergreen truth blog.

CONCLUSION:

Unless you are just writing for the fun of it blogging will not give you much satisfaction and no good friends and you will join tens of thousands who give it up after a few months of it at most.

If you liked this evergreen truth blog then read more of them and one or more of my evergreen truth books, especially COMMON SENSE, rays of truth in a human world filled with myths and deceptions.

THE TRUTH EVERGREEN BLOG CELEBRATES 1 YEAR OF BLOGGING!!!!!!

hiddenTruth1

Thanks to all my followers and likers who have given me encouraging feedback this past year!!!!!!

I blogged in a rather unconventional way by blogging every day about many topics which interest me and have over 400 blogs so far.

So far I have about a100 views a day with about 75% coming from search engines and the rest from interested bloggers.

My pride and joy is about 20 truth evergreen blogs all describing Motivational words beginning with the letters A through Z which is my own creation and is responsible for over 50% of the daily views on my blog.

I am a generalist interested in almost everything and not a specialty blogger and that is why I never run out of topics to write about. It will probably be a long time before I run out of things to write about. Thanks again and Enjoy!!!!!!

 

If you liked this evergreen truth blog then read more of them and one or more of my evergreen truth books, especially COMMON SENSE.

To read a list and access any of my approximately 400 evergreen truth blogs follow me at twitter.com/uldissprogis and I am sure that you will find more than a handful of evergreen truth blogs which will interest you.

HOW TO BE AND REMAIN A CREATIVE BLOGGER

creative-blogger

To be and remain a creative blogger you need a continuous source of new information which you then proceed to change and/or rearrange with your personal writing style and opinions about the order of the information which you want to present.

No new input means that there will be no new output and you will be writing in a dead end. Research, research, and research for new information. A blogger should spend more time researching and reading new information than writing. If you don’t like the research process then don’t be surprised if you run out of inspiration to write rather quickly.

Pick an area of expertise which you predominantly want to write about and passionately write about it and continue to research the topic for new ideas to add to your existing knowledge. You will probably quickly find out that once you write a few blogs then you will start running out of new ideas or simply not have the time to research and write as frequently.

If you find out that you have writer’s block then it is time to write about some new topic which may be your second or third passion in life. Find a new category to write about, do the research on the internet, in other blogs, or in books and change and/or rearrange the information and write a blog about it.

If you find out that you are spending more time writing than researching and acquiring new knowledge then you will probably write something relatively uninteresting and boring which will only have personal meaning to you. Pay attention to likes counts on other blogs to give you a better idea of what topics interest other bloggers and the way that they are presented in the blog.

Keep in mind that most readers are asking the question- Is it interesting or relevant to me and how will it help to make my life more interesting or useful. In effect, will this article entertain and inform me of something which I have an interest in and be useful in my life?

If you seem to be writing about something which interests few humans then be prepared for a lonely existence in your limited world. I am fortunate that the truth about almost any topic interests me so I blog and never run out of new topics to write about and I do so on a daily basis.

CONCLUSION:

You need a constant source of new information to write something new so try to develop an insatiable curiosity for the new and interesting with research reading. Creative blogging is about 95% research and 5% writing and if you are not spending time this way then you will not be a very creative blogger nor will you continue to be one.

4 TRUTHS AND 3 MYTHS ABOUT BLOGGING

blogging

TRUTH: Blogging can improve your writing skills.

Practicing writing not only eventually makes you a better writer but it will cure you of the illusion that everything which you write about is important to other humans. Given enough time you will realize that most humans do not care about your personal life and don’t pay attention to over 90% of the things which you write about.

 TRUTH: Most bloggers quickly run out of things to write about which interest other humans.

Blogging with interesting topics requires much work researching the material to write about. No new input in your brain results in no new output from your brain and translates into a dead end in your blogging experience. This is one of the major reasons why bloggers give up quickly and stop blogging.

 TRUTH: The most that you can expect from your blogging is random casual contacts with humans and no serious close friendships.

Most bloggers contact you because they liked your blog article but the probability that you will find a soul mate or close friend who shares your unique interests or passions in life and who can help you is highly improbable.

TRUTH: If you are the rare blogger who has 100 or more followers and have been blogging for about 6 months the chances are great that most of them are not blogging anymore and only a small fraction of them are still following you.

MYTH: Blogging will make you rich.

There are quite a few blogging scamers who are pushing their get rich quick scams such as AWOL. Others are scamming you with clever weight loss scams which promise you quick weight loss with a revolutionary weight loss secret. Of course you have to pay your hard earned money to get in on the scams designed to get money from you and leave you disappointed and angry.

MYTH: Blogging will help you sell your published book.

Your blogging followers are usually relatively poor and with a thousand and one interests few of which are reading books with the subject that you are hoping to promote. You probably need about 100,000 followers to sell about a hundred copies of your published book. I have about 17 books to choose from and haven’t sold one with about 200 followers. Dream on because blogging is not a good promotion tool for selling books.

MYTH: Blogging is a good way to promote your business

I have come across bloggers who are trying to promote their business such as a franchise for public school digital education in India, managerial consultants, book editors, legal consultation, and a medical research hospital in the UK. They are trying to contact bloggers based on the key words which they use and I personally think it is a very inefficient way to solicit customers and they are wasting almost all of their time, energy, and money.
