Simple Harry

One advantage of being a Librarian is seeing all the wonderful resources available. I'm a shameless pursuer of self-improvement, and have taken plenty of courses and read hundreds of books over the last several decades.

One of the best I've found is Simpleology: the simple science of getting what you want by Mark Joyner. It's a delightfully fun read, full of solid wisdom and insights delivered with a light touch and cartoons that work for me. (Except for Ziggy, few do.) I resonated most with the one on page 56. A fellow sits on the floor, surrounded by bills, reaching for the phone as a tele-guru says, "You are broke because you don't have the right tools to make you rich." Behind him are shelves full of self improvement books and tapes. I will write more about Mark and his great ideas in future posts, but want to tell you about my involvement with his latest project.

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.
