Hello. Another surprise and a welcome one. Someone nominated and awarded me the Inspiring Blog Award, which gives me a pretty good feeling to know that there is at least someone that likes what I do.
I want to thanks the person who nominated me, Allan Krummenacker. Thanks so much for this. I’ve never had much luck with competitions but my luck seems to be changing with my blog.
I need to write seven thing about myself.
1. I have a PADI license to dive
2. After being taught as a First Aid by St. Johns Ambulance, I had to use the knowledge for real on an individual who was losing a lot of blood. After the ambulance turned up they congratulated me on performing first aid and saving the man’s life. I have to personally thank St. John’s Ambulance for what they taught me.
3. At 14 I would sell football brochures for Blackpool FC so I could get in and watch them for free. It was a riot. Especially if they lost!
4. I was born in March so I am Pisces.
5. I was 26 when I spent a year in Australia back packing.
6. I love listening to Brian Tracy and read anything about the sub-conscious mind.
7. I’m a big Def Leppard fan!
Okay, sites that I like and have inspired me.
2. Kobo Writing life. It’s still in beta but I think this is going to be good for all writers.
3. Kindle Reader Blog Spot. Why? I started with the Kindle and so I am interested in all things Kindle. I am not a die hard fan of Kindle or of Amazon, but I do respect what Amazon and the Kindle has done.
4. Manybooks.net. It is what the title says. Loads of good books to download and read.
5. Munseys.com technosnarl. Opinionated reviews of e-reader technologies and books. I like this a lot.
6. Planet Ebook. Love the name and the site. Loads of books to download.
7. Napoleon Hill. Anything to do with this guy I like. I love his works and his teachings. Yes I know, it’s nothing to do with ebooks but he has inspired me.
8. Teleread. A great place to find out about the latest news on technology.
9. Kindleboards. Everything you have heard about this site relating to Kindle and Kindle help is true. I don’t use enough. It is great and probably the very first and best place for help on Kindle related information.
10. Blogging with Amy. If you click the link it will take you to a series of blogs/articles that she has written on how to get started with ebooks. They are very good. A great place to start.
11. Visit Buxton. Another site that has nothing to do with writing, but the town gave me the best childhood I could ever wish for.
12. The Ebook Reader. Similar to Teleread. Very informative on technology issues.
I think that’s it.
