I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because she explains how to improve your blog by planning ahead.

 

Use some brainstorming to create a positive focus for your content.

 

How to Create a Perfect Post

 

You need to have a game plan for each week of content that you publish. I agree that this will help create a better direction for your blog.

 

Elliott explains how to improve your blog posts by mapping out your content strategy.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • You need to write your articles with the reader in mind. Your audience is in the driver's seat when it comes to blogging success.

 

  • Write blog posts that educate your audience. Share your knowledge and expertise in order to help make improvements in their lives.

 

  • Become a thought leader by writing from a voice of authority. This will be done in your chosen target market or niche.

Leading in the business world and leading, when it happens, in School share some principles. What we need to be cautious with is School is not a business. It is a space where servant-leadership should be at the forefront.

This infographic explains how writing helps your memory, how your brain reacts when it hears a story, why clichés are forgettable and more.

Your brain on writing…

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 27, 2014 11:15 AM

Just as reading transforms us, so can writing impact and improve us. Whether reading or writing, or listening or speaking, our use of words matters.

Audrey's curator insight, January 4, 2015 6:05 PM

You activate many areas of your brain when you tell a story.  There are so many areas in education where students can use stories to remember details of information needed for writing  exam answers.  Stories are visual,  can be auditory; you can introduce smells and engage with whatever you are writing about. 

 

The whole brain becomes stimulated with a person's own  record of the information.  How can you forget?

How To Leverage the Science of Relationships to Gain True Influence

How To Leverage the Science of Relationships to Gain True Influence | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

If you define influence by the size of your Klout score, you can stop reading this right now.

 

If you believe influence is driven by the creation of a relationship between two parties, where one sees the other as truly knowledgeable about a particular product or service, then let’s talk about the science behind that influence.

Leadership is more about influence than about being out in front.

yes...some people are worthy of respect; others less so...

Caroline - so true!
Philippe Trebaul's comment, September 9, 2013 11:48 AM
You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week. Best regards :) Philippe
