Saul’s Armor in the World of Social Media

writingtipsAre you struggling for air in the race for new visitors to your blog site? I could ask the same question of website owners.  I’ve some friends in the YouTube community, who know exactly the feeling that I’m alluding to.  The race for new viewers is truly a rat race.

I, for one, do know the feeling of frustration.  Right now, I am struggling to get back into the job of creating content for my blog site and promoting the content.  At this point, you may be asking, “What does this has to do with the title?”  Oh, there is a connection and here’s the first part of the riddle.

Would You Read A Book on a Blog?

Would you read a book on a blog?  How about a book on this blog site?
I am now revamping Inspiration Point to do just that.  Once done, I can share what I’m going to write for the 2nd book.

There is more to this story! Continue reading “Would You Read A Book on a Blog?”

Published My First Book!!

bookcoverFor the record, Inspiration Point is far from dead. If you read my last blog post, then you already know what happened. For some time, I attempted to write a book, maintain my blog and care for my mother. It’s not an easy juggling act.

Last December, I decided to focus on the book and finish writing it. Two months later, I finished “A Lesser Human: An Anthology of Overcoming” and it saw publication in February 2016.🙂 Continue reading “Published My First Book!!”

The Coming New Year

https://insppoint.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/8d283-christmas-day-and-happy-new-year-religious-verses.jpeg?w=863The New Year is fast approaching and I will make one definite prediction. Someone is going to make a resolution and they hope to keep it. How can I know? It happens every year and it will likely continue.  What resolution are you considering?

If you’re reading this and it’s not January 1st; it’s not too late.  A good time to start a smart diet is often today. The same thing can be applied to reading certain books. Reading the Bible in a year is a popular resolution.  Of course, it is not the only one. What’s your resolution for the coming year?

A Columbus Day Retreat

ThreeSpringsDuring the Columbus Day weekend, I’ll be heading to Three Springs for a needed vacation. Did you ever have one of those days? I have been in need of one, for quite some time.

Three Springs is located in the mountains, past Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The mountain scenery is gorgeous; especially during the autumn season. My church regularly goes there, every year. I’ve been there, a few times and I love it. You can find out more, by visiting their web site at http://www.threespringsministries.org/

My only regrets is that I can’t go horseback riding. Then again, I’m 50 years old and I haven’t ridden a horse, since ’92. Don’t you think it’s time that I rethink that idea? However, there are activities that I can do and enjoy. If you have a mobility problem, then I’d not recommend this place.

I should be back in town, on Columbus Day. That’s a Monday. It’s unlikely that I’ll sit and write an article, the following day. Plus, I have another writing project in the wing. On June 2014, I wrote an article called “The Builder” and I’d like to use a retooled version of it in a chapter in a book or e-book.

Before I can use it; a model will have to be created. Why? I have trouble in painting a picture of something I’ve not seen. Hence, I need to create a visual reference. My only tool is Minecraft. Minecraft is a sandbox game and you can build some beautiful structures in it.

If you have any alternative ideas that I can use on my PC, then I’d like to hear it. Of course, I can also use my large tablet and it’s more powerful than my desktop.  I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.
