Here's my website, and as you can see it is nothing special. I work on it a little, and I add things to it when I can. Again I am a blogger, a writer, and a brand. This one little piece of the puzzle helps me to promote my brand further, and let me show you how.
Now that you HAVE a website you can start working on the Easter Eggs, that will support your writing. I have supporting documentations, lists, graphics, or anything else I need for a specific blog (and yes I have a lot of blogs, which is another reason to link my brand) in it's own little "micro website" under the BIG website. For example I was able to create content much quicker and nearly daily by having ready made lists of content. The Health Whacko (one of my other blogs) has an extensive Easter Egg, under my primary website with lists of terms and exercises that I can quickly cut and past into my daily articles, and bolster my content. I have been working on The Graphic Whacko (another blog) which is an even BIGGER Easter Egg, but my time is limited to finish it, so it just gets more worked on everyday. It's a win win, and there is no reason that all of you can't do this too! You all wait until I have a Blogaholics Anonymous Easter Egg, and then you all will get real sick of these tips. HA!

Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. 6
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
