Good Magnificent #SocialMediaMonday to You All!
I hope this post finds Everyone doing Super on what is for me at least, a Gloriously Beautiful Fall Day!
The sun is Shining Bright in the sky, the birds are Singing and for the moment All is right in my world.
Before I begin with today’s Tip, I’d like to just say a huge Thank You to All who have sent Well-Wishes my way after the loss of my Beautiful Bubba and to let You know that overall I’m doing Well.
Yes, there are times when I am Overcome with Tears or an Incredible Emptiness, and last night I even experienced a Horrific few moments of Doubt.
“Did I do the right thing? Could I have done more?” All those hideous things kept running round in my head and I had to sit down and have a Serious talk with myself.
“Yes.” I insisted. “You did everything possible. No, You couldn’t have done one thing more.”
Finally, when I’d cried myself out, I took my nighttime medication, had a small snack and crawled into bed, pulled the covers overtop myself, snuggled up with all Bubba’s Stuffy Friends and My Elli the Purple Elephant and after reading for a while dozed on off to sleep.
This morning, I’m alternating between Promotion Work and Housework. And after just having spent nearly an hour vacuuming and straightening the house I’m ready for a break and so here I am with what I Hope will be a Helpful Tip for You.
You see, the Wonderful thing about doing Housework is that if You Allow it, your mind can wander off on its own to talk with the Muse and before You know what’s happened the Dreaded Housework is Done and You’ve put together an Idea in Your head and You’re Ready to get it out to the World.
Over the past few months I’ve noted that people have a tendency to forget what they’ve done.
Sometimes I get submissions from clients that they’ve already published with me. Sometimes I get repeat information and though I totally understand this what it does is Take Time Away from the one sending and the one receiving.
So, with that running around in my head I came up with this little Tip.
First, create yourself a folder in which to store things you’ve sent out.
This is so easy to do it’s like rolling off a log. I mean, not that we go round rolling off logs mind you, but…
*Folder Creating Instructions*
- Open your documents folder.
- Press Shift Control N.
- When the new folder box pops up type in the title of the folder.
- Press enter.
Bang! You’ve created a folder.
Now, whenever you send something out whether it’s to promote yourself, or something else, you’ve a place to store it.
Whether you use a document, or an excel sheet, make lists.
Each time you send out something for possible publication, or as a promotional piece, whatever it is, write it down in a document or an excel sheet.
Write down what you sent, who you sent it to and when you sent it.
If there was info stating when you might hear back about whether what you sent out would be accepted, include that information too.
If you posted something to your blog, FB page, to an Email group or onto some other format write that down too.
Knowing what you’ve done when will help you in ways you can’t possibly imagine.
You can create sub-folders within a folder too. You do this by using the steps above only you simply open the folder you wish to put a sub-folder into and then follow the steps for creating.
Well, for now, this is Patty who needs to catch up her email and get something to eat before the floor guy comes saying…
Happy Creating, may Harmony find You and Blessid Be.
