Lesley Carter from Bucket List Publications http://www.bucketlistpublications.com is travelling to Alberta later this week. She recently put out a call for people to blog about their travels to this incredible province. I will do one better!
I have lived here for 13 years and had a blast last night digging up some of my favourite photos of travels with my wife and sons.
I can still remember the day that I saw the mountains for the first time as a kid. I was truly in awe of all that the Rockies had to offer.
Now as an adult, we are so lucky to have this beauty right in our own backyard (well almost, it is still a bit of a drive).
I hope you enjoy looking at our pictures as much as I did putting them together!
Just a quick note to say thanks for following my on this blogging journey that is quickly approaching 2 years (wow times flies by)!
I have kept you updated on important milestone that I reached with my blog, and I have another one to share today.
Over the weekend, I published my 300th post!
Or as I like to say, I TOOK ACTION 300 times!
I recently backed up all of my posts and took count. Over 200 of those were original content. When I started out, I thought I could only write about like 8 things 🙂
All joking aside, I am very proud of this accomplishment and am looking forward to many more years of blogging and helping others.
One quick bit of advice if you are just getting started on a blog, or are in a bit of a “writing rut”…
Don’t put pressure on yourself! Be open to creativity and be ready to take notes at a moment’s notice when ideas pop in to your head.
I have also gotten in to the habit of:
- Reblogging other blogger’s content
- Posting videos or links to cool stuff I find online
- Reposting my earlier writing every 6-8 months
Take the pressure off, and just have fun! Get in the habit of supporting others too, and not just feel obligated to come up with new material .
Thanks again for your support!
It means the world to me..
Susan Wright-Boucher and I have been following each other’s content and corresponding for quite some time now. She is a fellow Canadian and has a very cool blog. She recently did a post titled “7 Blogs For 7 Days”.
I was lucky enough to be one of the blogs featured on this fantastic post! Stop by and check it out when you have a sec…
At some point or another, most people online have thought about the “make money while you sleep” business model. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up in the morning and find out that they made money over night? I sure would.
I have been fortunate to follow some of the biggest names in the industry over the last three years:
- Eben Pagan
- Frank Kern
- Brendan Burchard
- Gary Vaynerchuk
- Russell Brunson
- Jeff Walker
I could go on and on. I recently stumbled upon Pat Flynn from the website “Smart Passive Income”. He is a breath of fresh air in a very crowded internet marketing space.
He lost his job several years ago and decided that he could make a go of it working online with a passive income model. He has worked his butt off to get where he is, and is very open about how much income he makes .
What drew me to him was his podcast. Many episodes have helped me immensely over the past couple of weeks, and I thoroughly enjoyed the episodes featuring another guy “killing it” named Lewis Howes.
Pat’s knowledge and passion for everything from YouTube, podcasting, blogging and networking has been truly inspiring.
I could ramble all day. Just stop by http://www.smartpassiveincome.com and find out how you can enhance your current business model (or get started) with some recurring income.
Oh yeah, you can check him out on Facebook too at http://www.PatOnFacebook.com (pretty slick hey?)
Hey there everyone!
Just a quick note to say Happy New Year! All the best for a health, happy and prosperous 2013.
Starting a blog in 2012 was an absolute pleasure, and I am striving for bigger and better things in the coming months.
Speaking of this blog, I noticed something very cool on my blog in December, and just had to give a huge shout out to one of my followers.
Her name is Tina Del Buono and you can follow her awesome blog called Practical Practice Management at:
When I started to write close to three years ago, I remember exactly where I was when I said to myself, “I wonder if anyone will care about what I have to say?” In that moment of uncertainty, it would have been easy to return to my “regularly scheduled life” and just put the pen down. But I kept moving forward, a little bit every day, with the hope that I would create a bit of a following when I launched my blog.
I have been incredibly fortunate that people like what I am doing, and many people comment.
And then there is Tina. After I noticed some statistics in early December, I was hoping that she would hit a very special milestone with my blog before year’s end. And she did!
She has taken the time to make 100 COMMENTS on my blog!
I can not thank her enough for helping make my blog a success with her insightful comments and support of my work in general. I am touched when anyone takes the time to correspond with me in any way, but 100 times in 11 months was just an incredible accomplishment!
You can also connect with Tina at:

Let’s make 2013 the best year yet! Have a great week.
I pride myself on showing up at my blog as often as possible. Things got a little “busy” over the past couple of weeks. I had a pretty good excuse for disappearing for a while!
