HOW TO SMARTLY USE A BLOG
AND HOW NOT TO USE A BLOG "UNSMARTLY"
USELESS OR WELL-USED?
Blogs can be useless distracters and wastes of time, where we are seeking stimulus or brief promises of hope and success or a good life in the future - but with no value that is lasting and true.
The problem with most good blogs is that they have more information value in them than can be utilized in a short, brief reading or in the time you have available at the moment. So, if there is value to be harvested, you must proactively then set up a time to harvest it. (Duh! Of course!)
THE SMART USE OF A BLOG
First of all, delete all blogs that have no useful substance or adequate credibility.
Then seek to gather blogs that are useful and beget effectiveness. (Most often you "network" into them gradually, but randomly to a large extent. But some of your sites actually point to other sites that are useful, having screened many already for your benefit, such as The Best, Top Self-Improvement, Life Improvement Sites, a dynamic list, to which you could add (contact me), in the spirit of Pay It Forward.
The blogs then are to be used as "reminders" or "flags" of what you could focus on to create something greater in life and/or to solve something that is subtracting from life (yours OR someone whom you care greatly about - which is why you should often pass valuable posts on to others whose lives you wish to have be better).
Then, use "The Process", in the upper right hand information box.
AS A TRUE EFFECTIVE LEARNER OF LIFE...
As a true, effective learner of life, you would also take this piece you are reading now and apply the suggested process to it in order to fully harvest the value that can be derived from this effective harvesting process! You would, as a part of that, study and fully understand and implement the contents of the Effective Learning piece.
