The Tools I Use To Blog & Share Visual Storytelling Goodness

As a Storyteller, I value the content on my site a great deal. Be it a Blog Post, Video, Image, or Presentation, it forms part of my storytelling ways, and helps me connect with folk like your good self. However, a storyteller is only as good as the tools he or she uses, and when it comes to this website - or more specific, BLOGGING - the tools I'm about to share make a huge difference in my world. Let me warn you, though, many of the links below are affiliates, which means I make a small commission from any sales. It doesn't affect you, merely helps me feed Kid Turndog from time to time ;) SAFARI V CHROME This isn't a tool per se, rather a suggestion from me to you. Chrome is … Read More »

Why I’m Hacking My Health In Order To Understand My Story Better

When I wrote the SCARIEST BLOG POST OF MY LIFE, I put a section in it called Health & Well Being. When it comes to My Story, the food I eat, the exercise I do, my weight and water in-take and sleep play a vital part in who I am. After all, as a writer, entrepreneur, and general misfit storyteller, my energy levels dictate what I can do. Your own energy levels dictate what you can do, too. We try to do so much, and one of the first things we negate is our health. Just repeat this sentence back to yourself and consider how crazy it is. When we get stressed and tired and worn down, we decide to sleep less, eat fast food, and sit in front of a computer all day. ARE WE INSANE?!? I … Read More »

Email is a huge component of my story, and I'm guessing it's a big part of your digital storytelling ways, too. In fact, head to your 'Sent Folder' right now, and highlight all the emails you've sent in the last month. Did you gape a little like I did two minutes ago? In the past two weeks, I've sent 227 Personal Emails, which doesn't take into account my Weekly Wednesday Email of Whimsey. I don't like phone calls. I'm awkward over the phone, so email is a large part of my daily day and my story, and in this post I share the tools I use to stay on top and ensure I waste as little time as possible. However, before we begin, many of the links below are affiliates, which means I earn a small … Read More »
