What is one guiding principle for your life?

Do you have a favorite quote or saying that represents a guiding principle for your life?
“Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can neglect to do today” :>)
Or “When my ship came in the dock workers were on strike.” :>)
Seriously speaking will you share one of yours with us?
I wrote about mine and guiding principles on my blog post today.
I’d love to read your guiding principles and get lots of likes and feedback today.

Have a Terrific Tuesday everyone

Poke-mon NO!

Kids don’t need another mindless, electronic toy to further separate their world from the real world.
Read about it today on my blog,
May I ask you to leave your feedback or “likes”? I love to read your thoughts.

Have a Thankful Thursday everyone.

Do you proofread what you write?

As a former newspaper reporter, editor and ad copywriter and English teacher, I edit often and meticulously. I want everything I write to be grammatically correct and easy to read. As a reporter, I had editors combing my stories and handing them back often for correcting and/or rewriting. As an editor, I had to comb the stories of those who wrote for me. My boss in the ad agency was a perfectionist, not just for the grammar but for the style and tone of the ads I wrote for our clients.
All I learned hung with me. As a blogger, I make the effort to maintain the same writing and editing standards for my blog posts. I’ve edited this piece four times already. And I’ve been editing along as I write.
There’s a bit of a downside to this. As I’m reading other blog posts, I edit in my head. I can spot subject-verb agreement errors (the worst errors) from three paragraphs away.

I never call other writers out for their grammar guffaws; and I don’t correct any guest blogger’s writing.
Am I anal retentive about my writing? I suppose I am. But hopefully my posts will be relatively error free and written in a simple, friendly style readers enjoy.
Seriously, I’d like to read your feedback about your proofreading and editing habits.

Want to study short academic courses online and for free?

Hey guys,

I’ve discovered these online free courses put together by some of the best universities around the world. The courses are about 2-3 hours of study per week and they last between 2 and 8 weeks, depending on the course. The topics are really varied and they go from business management to advertising or arts production, etc.

If you want to know more about it, check out my blog post: https://sevenstepsatatime.wordpress.com/2016/05/13/knowledge-is-power-study-for-free-with-futurelearn/

I’m very fond of education and I believe that it should be free so I’ll share many more articles on this topic. I personally have enrolled in the course Social Media – why we post? that starts on the 23rd of June. Let me know if you want to join in and we can study together 🙂

Cheers for reading.

Matea xx
