It's Better Than Nothin' Tuesday, the day where we focus on tiny changes or efforts towards our health goals because anything even if it's just walking 5 minutes or eating one less cookie a week is better than zero.
Because of the stress of the financial crisis, lots of people are driving themselves and each other crazy. Naw! You say. Come on be honest. I'm sure some time in the last couple weeks, you've been going a bit nutzoid either because you're doing it to yourself, or because you're around so many people that are, and you're absorbing their loco energy.
In this video, I share a few ideas on how to drive yourself happy instead of crazy. (video 2min 42sec)
Now, to add to the fun, since I'm all about abundance this week, in my own effort to drive people happy, I'm going to do a random act of kindness for one of you my readers based on this new online game I'm playing called Akoha which is based on paying forward random acts of kindness.
The game is still in Beta which means it's closed to the public, but if you're chosen, not only will you be the recipient of my goodness, you'll get into the game. Akoha is an awesome new way to do good and have fun at the same time. To learn more about how Akoha works, you can watch CEO Austin Hill's presentation at TechCrunch50. By playing, we'd be helping out this startup by being Beta users, and I'm all for helping out those who want to make cool technology to make the world a better place.
So, I am going to donate one hour of my consulting time to one lifestyle blogger or "would like to be a blogger or start a blog", on how to monetize your blog better, get more traffic or exposure, or any blog related topic you'd like to discuss. Lifestyle blogging is my specialty, and covers anyone who blogs about stuff like health, food, fashion, parenting, hobbies, self help, your own life, etc. Basically, you get me for one hour to pick my brain, and get help to take your blog to the next level.
To enter and play, leave a comment and share what is abundant in your life right now and why you're grateful for that abundance. I will leave the drawing open until this Thursday 12 midnight PST, and announce the recipient on Friday (10/17).
So remember, drive yourself happy instead of crazy!
Update (10/17): The recipient of Steph's one hour blog consulting time is Beth Dargis of My Simpler Life. Congratulations!
