Introduction

I wanted to do a small introduction of myself before I dive into the “hot and heavy”. My goal will be to write a new post every week. I will try to do more.

My name is Tanya. I was born January 19th, 1982. I am currently 37 years old. I work a 40+ hour job as a C.N.A. (Certified Nursing Assistant) in a local Skilled Nursing Facility. I am a mother of four children, some I birthed and some I didn’t.

I’ve always loved reading. My favorite books are horror, fantasy and science fiction. Some of my favorite authors include Clive Barker, Stephen King, Ann McCaffery, J.K. Rowling, Isaac Asimov, J.R.R Tolkien, Ann Rice, Douglas Adams, Stephanie Meyer, Cassandra Clare, Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Terry Brooks and many others I can’t remember.

During my time in the Honey House reading was my way to escape into another world. I didn’t have to think about my life if I was joining Frodo’s fellowship or learning about Asimov’s three laws of robotics. I still love reading. Sometimes it used for an escape and sometimes for pure pleasure.

I spend a lot of time watching movies and TV shows. My favorite genre is horror. I love Doctor Who, The Walking Dead and The Magicians. Most other shows I binge watch on Netflix.

I am an Agnostic. That means I believe that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond. I claim neither faith nor disbelief.

I am a Liberal. To me that means supporting civil rights, democracy, gender equality, racial equality, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion. I believe people should be free to do what they want and be who they are if they aren’t harming anyone.

It took me years and years to finally gain a sliver of self confidence in myself. I can proudly say that I am a pretty cool human being.

Author: Tanya Gadd

Tanya lives in Northeast Georgia with her well-loved, ungrateful children, one of whom won't do her homework, even under punishment of death. When not being a full-time mom, the rest of her time is spent working as a Certified Nursing Assistant, but her secret inner-life reveals her to be an avid reader who is always writing stories in her mind. Tanya hopes eventually to live in a world with few people, no phones, an awesome Internet, and more science fiction/fantasy books than she can ever hope to read.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why
    waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    site when you could be giving us something enlightening to
    read?

  2. Possibly you intended all along for the post to be about
    not letting doubts stop you from following your dreams and
    quitting your day job, but readers scanning subheads will not understand that.
    They will simply feel baffled. If you are listing numerous “methods,” “steps,” “approaches,” “indications,” and
    so on, to accomplish what the headline of the post assures, keep the format consistent.|
    Bloggers overlook this all the time, however it’s simple to fix as soon as you know it.
    If you separate your subheads from the post and list them back to back,
    you can see if any roaming from the course. Say your post is called “12 Ways to Cure Insomnia” and you have a subhead for each of the 12
    methods.|
    Let’s state your very first few subheads read as follows:
    Exercise Every Morning Avoid Caffeine Like the Plague Get up at the Same Time
    Everyday There is Nothing More Sleep-Inducing Than Nighttime Meditation Something there feel a little off?
    The very first three subheads start with an action verb
    instructing readers what to do.|
    However then the fourth subhead unexpectedly changes the format and breaks the flow.

    It does not start with a verb and it’s a lot longer than the others.
    This inconsistency may appear relatively innocent,
    however it’s distracting to readers. Let’s face it, readers today are info-holics.
    We all are. So exhausted old guidance isn’t going to suffice.|
    My recommendations? List your primary points and see if you can include a special viewpoint,
    experience, or twist to them. Something readers aren’t expecting.
    What belief systems have you discovered to challenge? What
    do you know that many people don’t? How can you shed
    new light on an old problem? What approaches do you utilize that others
    will not understand about? You don’t wish to go overboard just for the sake of adding shock value.|
    However spitting up old recommendations does not challenge you as a writer, nor does it inform
    your audience. So put your readers a little espresso for their info-hangover by
    delivering the unanticipated. Many articles have
    actually been composed about blogging, however the
    number of have actually called you out for being
    dumb or told you to replace your buddies ?!
    Jon does just that by knocking you over the head with some difficult fact bombs about what it
    takes to make it as a blogger.

  3. In his intro, Glen Long remarkably taps into the fear of failure all writers experience
    by attending to the imagine making a living as an author and after that
    rapidly smothering that dream with the doubts
    that approach at the mere thought of it: So, who understands?

    Perhaps the doubters are right.|

    The fear of failure hurts, yes. However providing voice to
    it is validating and makes readers excited for the solutions that will set that fear free.

    Finally, as you conclude your introduction, tip at
    the promised land. The location readers will get to when they master
    your techniques.|

    However whatever you do, do not provide everything away.
    Simply one sentence that states too much satisfies your readers enough to send them clicking away.
    Why? Since readers bore quickly. You need to keep them on their toes.
    And the point of an intro is not to provide responses,
    it’s to set the stage for all the hearty suggestions your post will supply.|

    Then, she utilizes the most basic expression to mean a service: That kind of guessing is like throwing darts blindfolded and hoping
    you struck the bull’s eye. Sometimes it works.
    Generally, it does not. Luckily, there’s another way How could anybody not want to keep reading?

    When composing an introduction, attempt drafting 2 completely
    various variations approached from different angles and setting off various feelings.|

    A word of care: No matter how eloquent your words No matter how powerful your
    prose If your intro does not please user intent, readers
    will click the “back” button and never ever return. What’s user intent?

    If somebody searches for “how to slim down” in Google, they’re anticipating search results that will assist them slim down.|

    And when they leave, what they’re basically telling Google is this:
    “At no point in your rambling, incoherent action were you even near anything that might be thought about a rational thought. Everyone in this space is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have grace on your soul.” And Google will
    respond by ranking your post lower in its search engine result.

  4. Maybe you meant the whole time for the post to be about not letting doubts stop you from following your
    dreams and quitting your day task, however readers scanning
    subheads will not understand that. They will simply feel confused.
    If you are listing numerous “methods,” “actions,” “techniques,” “signs,” and so on, to achieve what the headline of
    the post promises, keep the format constant.|
    Blog writers overlook this all the time, but it’s easy to fix when you’re mindful of it.
    If you separate your subheads from the post and list them back to back, you can see if any stray from the
    course. Say your post is called “12 Ways to Cure Insomnia” and you have a subhead for each of the 12 methods.|
    Let’s say your very first few subheads check out as follows:
    Workout Every Early Morning Avoid Caffeine Like the Plague Awaken at
    the Exact Same Time Everyday There is Absolutely Nothing More
    Sleep-Inducing Than Evening Meditation Something there feel a little
    off? The first 3 subheads start with an action verb advising readers what to do.|
    But then the 4th subhead unexpectedly changes the format and breaks the
    circulation. It doesn’t begin with a verb and
    it’s much longer than the others. This inconsistency might appear relatively innocent, but it’s sidetracking to readers.
    Let’s face it, readers today are info-holics. We all are.

    So exhausted old suggestions isn’t going to suffice.|
    My suggestions? List your bottom lines and see if you can add a special point of view, experience, or twist
    to them. Something readers aren’t expecting. What belief systems have you learned to challenge?
    What do you understand that many people do not? How can you shed new light
    on an old issue? What techniques do you use
    that others won’t learn about? You do not desire to overdo it just for the sake of adding
    shock worth.|
    However regurgitating old suggestions doesn’t challenge you as a writer, nor does it inform
    your audience. So put your readers a little espresso for their info-hangover by delivering the unanticipated.
    Many short articles have been discussed blogging, but how many have actually called you
    out for being dumb or informed you to replace your good friends ?!
    Jon does just that by knocking you over the head with
    some hard reality bombs about what it takes
    to make it as a blog writer.
