Simple'ology Course on Blogging

I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

My Wine Style – yummmmmm!

Kick-off some conversation. Fire-up your senses. Your personality matches the most sophisticated and idolised wine-style: Cabernet Sauvignon.

Connoisseurs love your subtly and complexity. But most of all they love your originality. You have a capacity for structure, depth and clarity that allows fresh and unique characteristics to burst forth.

Your Strong Points:

  1. Your chutzpah
  2. Spontaneity and naturalness
  3. Staying power

Careful you don't:

  1. Lose your cool
  2. Under-value friendships
  3. Get possessive

What my business is all about and what I do!

What is a Virtual Assistant (VA)? "A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a business owner who works from their own office providing professional support, services and skills to their clients via phone, fax and internet based technology.
Partnering with a VA reduces stress, protects cash flow, eliminates administrative hassles, and enables business people to find the success they originally set out to achieve.
A VA is your right hand person helping you to succeed in your business. The irony is you may never meet your VA as odds are they live nowhere near you!"

Christmas and 2008 around the corner!

Beautiful Curvaceous Bali Dancer
Who can believe it? Where has the year gone?
I can't believe how fast this year has gone, and that here we are around the corner from 2008. There I am today wandering around our local Westfield Shopping Centre - Marion, - (believed to be the largest shopping complex in Adelaide according to Wikipedia) watching, looking at all the Christmas decorations, the children sitting on Santa's knee, the older kids hoping for the latest technology in their life, and just amazed at how fast this year has flown!!
I can't believe that this time last year we were planning our trip to Bali. We were planning to stay at The Bounty Hotel and at The Kumala Pantai - the best fun I have ever had with my dearest friend, from Perth. And here we are a year on, planning to put up the Christmas Decorations and do the Christmas thing!! So is it just me, or is it the same for everyone? Does it seem that as we get older that life flows faster? Why is that? What changes about the world - is it the axis changing - is it the clock moving faster, or is it just plain us not wanting to admit we are in fact just running so we can keep up with the Jones', to meet society and its expectations of us?
Anyone wanting to comment please do so? I will be back to finish this deep and meaningful - just gotta go fall into bed! Night everyone.

New Garden, New Business happening Yay!

This is going to be a quickie!!! Wow the thoughts that statement conjures up!!
Just wanted to quickly pop in and update all news on the Western Front - HOME that is!! But it is 0230 and I am exhausted and want to pop off to bed.

However for my dear friend in the US - you know who you are - I just wanted to post some piccies of my progressive front garden I have put in in last few weeks!

Along with that I have been busy getting together final costs and answering a few of my own questions about my new business "The Office Realm Beyond"- my work as a Virtual Assistant.

So to my dear friend in the US here are my piccies of my garden, and I will come back later today and get more done!
