I see a new trend… bloggers who are behind memes group them in one and give collective answers. This is a very interesting trend and I’d say quite… productive. Yes, Laura, I’m answering your giant all-in-one meme first.
The Productivity Meme
I cannot describe myself as a person who plans her time effectively. I manage to keep my deadlines, but it is hard to say how. Magic? Probably…
I am a very creative individual and I base my work on inspiration. I should plan what I do first, but instead I go with the flow. Sometimes I even start two articles at once and write as I feel. Now I have two ebooks in progress and although their contents are planned carefully, the texts still need a lot of work.
I cannot write when my heart is not there. To perform research effectively (identifying the best keywords, analyzing the market trends, measuring campaign costs versus revenue, etc) I use special software.
On the other hand, Pamil Visions receives quite often design orders: logo and stationery, web design (banners, web pages, AdWords landing pages, newsletters, etc). I usually delegate these, but when the subject is interesting and I feel inspired, I design them myself.
If I think about it… I have quite an impressive design portfolio (for someone who is not a designer). Web design, as painting, relaxes me and helps me think.
Do I have some secrets that help me finish my projects in time? Sure I do… Am I ready to share? Why not… it’s common sense: I never start a job I cannot do. I do not promise what I cannot deliver. I don’t leave for tomorrow what I can do today. I put my heart in what I do: passionate workers deliver quality results. I respect my clients and make sure that their requests are answered in time. I use alerts and reminders to keep my focus…
And I have a motto for each day of the week: Mondays are my “wishing” days. Tuesdays I stay out of trouble. Wednesdays I work harder than ever, because Wednesday evenings are reserved to salsa dancing and Thursdays I sleep longer and do easier jobs (for example design). Fridays I plan my work for the weekend (including house work) and Saturdays I do “exchange” jobs for my collaborators and affiliates. Sundays are my lazy days: I read, paint… pamper my senses…
As you see, dear Laura, my productivity is based on the way I like to live. Because, unlike you, I am free and have no responsibilities: no kids, no family here, not even a pet. OK, I give… I have three plants.
For this particular meme I tag… Steli: supercoll teacher, tell us how to be productive.
The Thinking Blogger Award Meme
I’d like to thank Dunn and Alina for the Thinking Blogger Award. I’m supposed to give 10 such prizes to 10 different bloggers now, to continue the meme. Because this is a good meme, that recognizes value, I will not skip my duty. So here they are:
Robert Redl of leuropa.eu, Phil Butler one of the authors at profy.com and a dear friend, Julia Temlyn – Mrs. Write Right, Ed Roach of The Branding Experts, Lillie Ammann – Writer & Editor, Justin who authors a photo blog about Romania, Simonne of All Tips and Tricks, Yaro of Entrepreneurs Journey (visit the site and subscribe to his newsletter!), Chris Cree of Success Creations, and Dio for the Fine Art of Blogging initiative.
The 8 Random Fact About Myself Meme
Well, one random fact about my self is that I don’t like lists. So there will be no list here.
I am not going to tag 8 particular bloggers either because I’d like to ask my readers instead to visit Maria’s blog and to learn from this wonderful woman how to fight for a dream. Besides, she has a few pictures of very sexy actors and actresses on her blog so… enjoy.
But the fact that I don’t like lists will not stop my ramblings about… myself. I don’t like sweets. Wait! I think this is not random because… it’s a way of life. I randomly eat strawberries. There’s nothing I enjoy eating more than I enjoy strawberries and French-fries.
I am a convinced fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger the Mr. Olympia, the actor and the governor.
I breathe Latino music: salsa, merengue and bachata – this is my chocolate! I like the Cuban style: erotic and passionate.
And there’s more about Mig here.
The Face Behind the Blog Sort of Meme
The Face Behind The Blog comes from David Airey. Take a look at the original post and you’ll know why I made this Photoshop collage. These are a few pictures showing you the different faces of Mig. I hope you’ll enjoy them. For this particular meme I tag Maria because I want to see her blonde.
