I Learn Stuff From This Guy23
Day 3 of the Birthday Week Giveaways! I’m having fun. Are you guys? Let’s do it!
I honestly couldn’t tell you how I came across this blog. I’m a link clicker, so maybe someone on Twitter that I was following put up a link of his or maybe I was just wandering around the Internet one night looking for blogging tips. I don’t know. But I’m so thankful that I did.
Jeff Goins is a blogger who writes about all aspects of writing and creativity. If I’m not learning something new from his posts, I’m being inspired to be more and do more. This guy is kind of a world-changer. And I’m pretty cool with that.
Jeff has interviewed Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing, Michael Hyatt and has most recently written a guest post on Michael Hyatt’s blog called Seven Steps to Writing a Successful Guest Post.
One of my favorite topics, though, that Jeff has written about — and maybe I shouldn’t say “favorite.” Let’s say most educational for me — are about Search Engine Optimization or SEO. I had no idea what I was doing or how to do it. SEO seemed like a foreign language, and still sometimes it is. What I do know, is I learned a lot. I’m still in the process of implementing some of his tips, and I’ve seen a growth in the hits on this site.
So maybe it’s just my opinion (I don’t think it is) but this guy is gold. Bookmark his page and learn about writing, blogging and changing the world.
When I asked Jeff about a book that he would recommend, he didn’t have to think too long before sending me back a title. Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art by Madeleine L’Engle was his recommendation. And to be quite honest, I can’t wait to start reading it. When I asked Jeff if there was any particular reason that he chose that book, he said simply that it was the “best book on writing and faith I’ve ever read.” And this guy reads a lot. He posts his reading list online, and I am shamed every week by the sheer lack of what I read in comparison. I’m okay with that, though. I now have a stack of books that are just calling my name!
So in order to have a chance to win Walking on Water, you have to do a few things for me. See, you give me an inch, I’ll take a mile. You have until June 14 at 11:59 p.m. to comment and enter for the giveaway. I will announce the winner on June 15 at noon CST!
First you have to answer the question below here in the comment section. You can give me a serious answer or be a total smarty-pants. I don’t really care. It just has to be in the comment section here on the blog and not a comment on my Facebook page. Answer it already.
Secondly, see those little buttons at the bottom of the post? If you have Facebook or Twitter or any of the others, I’m asking you to share a link to this post. Also make sure you put that I’m giving away stuff so your friends can get in on the action, too!!
Thirdly, you need to go “Like” my page on Facebook. Okay. That’s not a requirement, but I’d really like it if you did!
That’s it. That’s all you have to do. I will be notifying the winner June 15. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow and see what the new giveaway will be!! So answer the question below!
