Blog Trainer UK – Is #FLbiz of the Month – Beat Your Blues Through Blogging!

Hi everyone

#FLbiz

As you may or may not know, I teach Blogging as an aid to recovery for the Recovery Learning Community, that is part of the NHS Partnership Trust.

I also teach Blogging for Business Fast Track Masterclass and Blogging for Health and Happiness Workshop, at the Phoenix in Exeter, in Devon, in the UK. For this, I go under the name of Blog Trainer UK and have my own http://www.blogtrainer.co.uk site, that is a Google Verified Business.

No longer do you have to suffer in silence. You can find your voice, and Beat Your Blues Through Blogging. It’s a great way of connecting to like-minded people and of growing your confidence and self-esteem. It helped to heal my own recovery from depression and it can help you too.

I am pleased to say that Blog Trainer UK is #FLbiz of the Month, for both January and February 2015. In order to receive the award, you have to use #FLbiz in your tweets. This gives you free business promotion in the form of Retweets of your Tweets.

I am also pleased to tell you, that #FLbiz is a free business promotional tool, from the company http://www.firstletter.biz and http://www.firstletter.co.uk and the person behind the company, Aaron Palmer, I have been mentoring for some time in his business. I came up with the idea for Business of the Month; that has been hugely successful in helping his business to grow.

Here is the Founder, Aaron Palmer’s testimonial, of the Quirky Mentoring work that I have done for, and with him.

“When our business needed effective marketing and development strategies in order to build our brand, Sandra and Quirky Mentoring worked closely with us to provide a unique, quirky and successful solution which was personalised to our business. She created opportunities for us by suggesting our Business of the Month competition which has really increased the awareness of our hashtag #FLbiz and has helped grow our business with our hashtag now having over 5 million views per month. Sandra has also supported us every step of the way in increasing our Twitter followers from 2,000 to nearly 10,000 in just under 11 months with new and quirky ways with engaging with our audience. 

Sandra has mentored and inspired promotional ideas for our Business of the Month Marketing competition also, which in turn offered opportunities to expand our business Group even further. This has since created a networking platform for us, where we have successfully launched a rapidly expanding e-commerce business which has tripled it’s turnover since 2013. 

This has supported our business Group greatly as with Sandra’s help, we have now built the foundations in which we can fulfil other business opportunities. All of which we are very thankful for.

A true and inspiring quirky service which you will never find elsewhere.” –

Hi everyone

I recently received a Good Citizenship Award from the police.

The Exeter based Express & Echo newspaper has covered the story of why I got the award. I am on the front page and page 8.

I took some photos of the newspaper so you can catch a glimpse.

Special Recognition Award beatredundancyblues – It’s official

Hi Everyone

If you have been wondering why I have not been posting as regularly, it’s for two major reasons:

  1. I have been poorly for over a month with a chest infection.
  2. I have been working hard on finishing my website design and content for beatredundancyblues.com that will be a free resource for everyone to use. The content is aimed at people who have been made redundant and job seekers – It is almost finished.

beatredundancyblues.com will include access to:

  • Job sites
  • Recruitment sites
  • Courses sites

At the click of a button from within the one site.

The site will also include health and wellbeing:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

I recently had some amazing news that I just couldn’t wait to share with you –

beatredundancyblues was awarded an official Special Recognition Award.

I will keep you posted on the launch of beatredundancyblues.com

In the meantime, stay positive.

Redundancy

I won the Beautiful Blogger Award

Hi Everyone.

Although this is my beatredundancyblues blog, I could not wait to tell you that I am really pleased to have received the Beautiful Blogger Award for my quirkybooks.wordpress.com blog.  My first ever blogging award, it feels fantastic.

Dorothy Stacy from dorothystacy.wordpress.com  awarded it to me, she is a fellow writer and has some interesting posts that you may want to check out.

Apparently I should be passing this award on to 7 other people and I have been taking my time to contemplate who to give it to but as I don’t have a huge list I feel I have fallen short at concluding only 5.  I do however believe that these 5 are of good quality and are of people who I follow that take the time out of their day to blog regularly, so they very much deserve the award.  First I will tell you a few facts about myself that you may or may not know.

  1. I have 4 guineapigs that live with me in 2 indoor cages, they are called Peaches, Snuggles, Daisy and Cinnamon.
  2. I have been a presenter on Hospital Radio since 1995 and I currently present a Dreamboat show on Hospital Radio Exeter, on a Monday evening, 10pm-11pm.
  3. I have been made redundant twice during my 15 year career in retail and each time I have managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder.  I started this blog to help others who have been made redundant, to get back into work.
  4. I have my own website called quirkybooks.net  that is currently about me and my writing but I am intending in the future to change it into an e-book shop to sell my own work.
  5. I now have an illustrator for my debut children’s picture book and hopefully it should be released as an e-book before the end of the year.
  6. I prefer to use a Mac rather than a PC, as I find it better to work with the large amount of applications I use, although I can also work on a PC.
  7. I am a student at present and I am currently studying an IAG Level 4 Diploma. (Information, Advice and Guidance.)  I got my 10 modules on the 4th of May and all work has to be completed by the 25th of June.
  8. I am going to the Coaching Academy in London on the 9th and 10th of June to get a certificate in Personal Coaching.
  9. I am currently studying Adobe Indesign at Exeter College.
  10. I am doing a self-employment course with Womens Development Unlimited to help me start up my own business.
  11. By the time I have finished all of my courses I will be launching a new website called beatredundancyblues.com that I am currently developing and I will be able to be a Redundancy and Unemployment Specialist Support Advisor, Coach and Trainer and will be able to A.C.T for you.

If you want to know anything else, just ask.

In the meantime, I have the very important honour of giving the Beautiful Blogger Award to 5 other lucky bloggers, so here goes:

  1. margekatherine.com
  2. hurtlingtowards60.wordpress.com
  3. talinorfali.wordpress.com
  4. ilovegetttingupinthemorning.wordpress.com
  5. lesleycarter.wordpress.com

If you have any recommendations as to which other 2 blogs I could give the award to, then please let me know.

Write soon.
