For the benefit of those who might have fallen under the sway of some of the vicious anti-government worker propaganda that has sometimes spilled out of the mouths of our elected officials, I say this: try to pick up your own garbage, inspect the meat and milk in your super market, keep the highways safe, take care of your relative traveling abroad, and thousands of other things that government workers do 24/7, not just here at home, but around the world. Are government workers essential? You’re damn right they are!
If you agree, reblog or ‘share’ this with everyone on your list.
A retired, but still ‘essential’ government worker.
If you’re a blogger, one book you simply must read is, Blog It! The author’s guide to building a successful online brand by Molly Greene. Greene is an author, blogger, and blogging coach who knows what she’s talking about and does it in an engaging way.
This is a kind of nuts and bolts recipe book of blogging, covering everything from building a stable of regular readers to how to sell your books on your blog. The reader is taken from the basics; where should you establish a blog, setting up a writing and publishing schedule; to more advanced techniques such as search engine optimization (SEO) and blog design.
Written in a direct, no-nonsense manner, this book will, if you follow Greene’s advice, make you not just a better blogger, but a more successful blogger. There are a lot of books out there on blogging, but this one is without doubt the best. I give this book an unqualified five stars!
