An internet friend of mine, Debbie Loesel Stanton is starting a new and exciting way of blogging. As far as we both know the way she and her blogging colleague Eric will do this is a first on the internet and as we all know you can pretty much find anything on the internet so for this to be something unique really is quite something.

Debbie calls her new method “flexibility”.


What flexibility means is this in Debbie’s words:

“Story Squared is a story blog: one continuing story with two writers who will add a little bit to it daily or almost every day. Even the authors will be in suspense, because we won’t know what the other person will write.”

This is very definitely an interesting approach to creative literary writing online and I am definitely looking forward to it. If Debbie and Eric are indeed the first people to do this online then they will be pioneers or even inventers of a totally new genre.

I will keep you all updated.

Debbie’s blog is: http://sunshinefactor.wordpress.com

Eric’s blog is: http://volutedmind.wordpress.com/

and together they will be writing on http://storysquared.wordpress.com/ when it’s up and ready for public viewing.

I wish both Eric and also Debbie over there in her lovely St Paul, Minnesota good luck!

A few days ago I wrote a blog about the “follow me generation”, link which spoke about how the new generation is different to before because they keep in touch with each other via facebook, twitter and other social media and grow up together “following” what they are up to in their lives. This is in contrast to the past where people would meet in high school, university and work and often just lose touch, or maintain at least very tenous contact, with each other.

This phenomenon has had an impact on advertising and marketing. Anyway the blog covers all of this in more detail  including a reference to university research about this.

Within a few days this blog was the first out of two hundred and seventy two million webpages when you typed in the words “the follow me generation” on to Google. I am in London, UK so the search results provided for me are those of Google.co.uk.

Below is a printscreen of what I saw when I typed “The follow me generation” on Google yesterday. Please click on it to see more detail.

My article, "the follow me generation", was the first out of 272 million web pages.

This is a relatively minor success, but it’s important to remember every success that you have no matter how small it is and dwell on that more than you “dwell” on your failures. When you do focus on your failures, which you should do, do it in a calm analytical way rather than an emotional way.  In addition it can at times be better to do it in a light hearted, perhaps even jovial way. When however you think of your successes no matter how small, spend more time and mental energy on them and “dwell” on it more, and be as emotionally positive as you can or chose to be.
This is part of what we call practising “abundance”, which I spoke about in a previous article (click here to read the article). What you focus on more is what you attract more in to your life. So always focus on the good things going around you no matter how small they are and you will notice more and more “good things” coming to you. To repeat one of my favourite sayings which you will hear from me often, “Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone”.
Have a great day!
