How To Use Junk Email For Blogging Inspiration

Your inspiration can’t run dry.


We can be inspired by both the things we like and the things that we can’t stand the sight of.

It’s all about perspective and whether you are prepared to accept that the “being inspired” part of the equation is actually the easiest part of all.

The difficult part is doing the work.

For a example a great to place to look for unique blogging inspiration is in the trash; that’s right take a look at the titles of the emails in your junk folder… could you be inspired by them?

Remember, inspiration is not about looking for a fire, it’s simply looking for a dry piece of wood that could start the whole thing.

Why It Aint Easy Parenting Artistic Kids

I’m sure that I confuse my parents quite a lot.

After going to college(university) and graduating as a Veterinary Surgeon; my future was apparently safely mapped out in front of me.

I would never touch poverty, I would most likely always be gainfully employed in a profession that was easy to comprehend and simple (and with some pride) to explain to others.

Then I went and gave it all away.

From their perspective, I am sure this was a foolish mistake, risky beyond measure, difficult to understand.

From my perspective, it was an obvious choice, to waste my years doing something that I liked BUT that didn’t fullfil my passions; or to take arms against a sea of troubles and give into the dreams that had been in my heart ever since I could remember.

Yes, I have touched poverty on more than one occasion, I have walked, I have stumbled and I have fallen and I have failed far more than I have succeeded BUT at least I have been faithful to the dreams inside of me.

Why My Wife Won’t Let Me Lose My Accent

I once knew an actor who went to New York from New Zealand and within 5 seconds had picked up the worst New York accent that money could buy.

He didn’t just use it on the stage… he spoke with it all the time.

I once asked my wife before we got married if she would still love me if I didn’t have this accent; she replied that she would not.

Why would you love someone for not being themselves?

Appeasement is a dangerous road to travel on the internet or in Hollywood.

If you lose your voice, you lose yourself and you might as well just go hop in the big old box in the ground and pull the lid over the top of yourself.

Your tone may change, but your accent, what you believe, how you look at life, that is your unique gift and you should never ever give it away.

The Secret To Finding Your Niche And Making Money Online

Who are you?

Like attracts like and your niche(s) online will most likely be people who are similar to you; so the hidden secret to finding your niche is knowing who you are…

For example, for years on Seven Sentences (yes “for years” I am exceptionally slow sometimes), I tried to get everyone to like me. The result was slow growth, and displastic blog content, that was well written but did not serve a need on a consistent basis.

Who am I?

I am a creative person, who loves artistic expression, innovation business, entrepreneurship and the power of the internet.

Who are you?

Why It Is Important To Be Niche

It is important to know your niche.

Remember at high school, how difficult it was to hang out with the wrong crowd and make them like you? Well, it’s kind of like that when your marketing your business online.

Art is a business too, so when you are creating, think of your niche and don’t run around the school trying to impress everyone that you know.

People outside your niche might not be interested in who you are and what you are doing; to be honest they might even hate you; BUT that’s okay because you were never trying to satisfy them in the first place.

Yes, you can have more than one niche, but the more niches you have the more difficulty you will have in marketing your business.

I know this for a fact because with Seven Sentences I target several niches and the progresses has been slower because of this.

Knowing Your Story Will Keep You Straight

There is a piece of advice I give all any writer I work with; and typically what works in fiction also works in life.

Why are you writing this particular story?

What is the personal, internal, emotional reason for picking up the pen and choosing to express yourself in this way?

I am sure this is important for other art forms. There is both safety and power in intimately knowing the story that we are trying to tell.

You should be able to sum up your story in seven words or less; in actual fact your story can often be contained in a sound, like a groan, a cry, a laugh or a sigh.

When we know the emotional reason for our story, fighting for what we are trying to achieve is as easy as breathing.

The “WHY” Is The Most Important Thing Of All

Always ask why?

But really ask the question; if you are not searching for something you will never find it.

I encourage all my clients who I consult with either in the business field or in the creative field to continually ask this question.

“Why” is not a theoretical or intellectual question it is an emotional, whole person search for the reason that you must do what you must do?

Why must you paint? Why must you write? Why must you share your thoughts with others?
