Its #TOOLTUESDAY!

Not Toolz Oniru.

Duh.

Tools. On the newly instituted #ToolsTuesday, I will be sharing the tools that have helped, aided and abetted my writing journey. So, hold tight and enjoy the ride…

Today, I’ll be sharing about POSTCRON. Its an automation tool that allows me share my writings or posts at different times without the repetitive and regular manual posting. I can even set up predefined times of posting for myself (although, I’m still understanding that feature). It also shortens your long blog and social media links just as bit.ly would.

It also allows you to post manually from there just as you could do on Twitter or Facebook, but the thing here is that you don’t have to open those extra tabs to type it differently. All your added social media accounts are listed side-by-side and you can hop back and forth between them. All Postcron needs me to do is come up with my text content and images, key them in, choose my scheduled times, as shown in this step-by-step tutorial and voila! Posted.

It also has 4 plans: Free, Professional, Business, Agency and Mega – their details are here.

P.S The desktop application is near perfect, but the mobile app is error-filled. SO, use the desktop app.

And that’s all for #ToolTuesday! Enjoy!

Silent Bells

Emotional Abuse. For a man. Isn’t all that common.

OR IS IT? A coachee of mine wrote this. You should breathe it in…

I smiled.
Even when it stung my pride, leaving deep bloody sores of shame.

I smiled.
As each adjective unmasked the monster she saw in me.

I smiled.
Inside,  there was heat, there was pain, but I couldn’t raise my voice (or my hand).

They would call me weak.
And there were no scars to tell the full story.

I smiled.
But deep inside it choked my little embryo of happiness.

Emotional abuse just doesn’t ring the right bells.
All I can do is smile.

YOU DON’T READ? BUT YOU WANT TO WRITE? 

read 2

I had a conversation with someone yesterday.  She had a problem finding words to express herself in writing. I immediately asked the obvious question.

‘Do you read?’ ‘No. I read only academic texts’.  

I almost fainted…on phone. It is impossible to breathe out without breathing in. So it is with reading before writing. You may write, but your writing will never be rich if you don’t read,  CONSTANTLY.  Read More

ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY…

Your actions make it seem like it was.

3 ways to get great pictures for your blogHow do you feel when you see bloggers who write posts and get 20 comments, 100 shares and even gets endorsement deals because of their blog. It makes you wonder what you are not doing right.

We saw this quote and we were encouraged and being the great people that we are, we have decided to share. This quote was shared by Darren Rowse.  He said

99.9% of great bloggers are not awesome on day one. Their awesomeness is the accumulation of the value they create over time.”

How profound is that? 

This means that you have no business getting envious of other bloggers and their successes because they have done so much work overtime to get to that point. You can’t be blogging for one month and expect the same results as someone who has been blogging consistently for one year. 

No blogger becomes perfect by writing…

Better Soup, Na Money Kill Am!

Some days, when I flashback to when my second paid training, I laugh.
It is funny now but it wasn’t funny then.

I had been ardently following a writing authority online for a while. And I thought I knew where my loyalties lay. Until he started promoting a 21-day training he was to hold.

I snapped. Read More
