Manic Monday – Planet Simon and the week ahead

I missed out my manic Monday last week as it was a bank holiday and I was otherwise getting up to tricks, but here’s a little bit to catch up on here. Planet Simon is always changing, moving about all over the place and trying news things. I have to say since Murphy’s Law has been kicked I’ve noticed so much more positivity in my life – it makes me think that the universe really is watching what we’re doing.

The new thing to start this week is the start of the Kindness Challenge, run by Niki of The Richness of a Simple life it going to be an interesting look at kindness and how I display it towards myself and others in my life.

Something subtle that you may not have noticed is that the Gallery link has now changed and takes you to my Flikr page, a bit more obvious is the link to my Wattpad account from my page. There’s not much there yet, bu that bring me onto the next thing…

The Titan Mystery is being re-written and re-published on Wattpad and will eventually end up as some kind of novella e-book (I hope). So watch this space – well that space!

There’s exciting things ahead and maybe even a bit more writing time ahead – more to come on this and hopefully this week!

Manic Monday – Planet Simon, the week ahead

So this week there are as always a few things going on. However, unlike other weeks there’s one or two things of importance that I can’t say much about now but let’s say things might be about to change a bit and who knows where that may lead me?

Last week I managed to do something I’ve been meaning to do for ages, I’ve got a few short stories that need writing up bringing into being. I’ve been meaning to put what I have on my Wattpad and I’ve finally done it. Talking about Wattpad I’ve put a link to my Wattpad on my home page – if your a Wattie (hey I couldn’t think of anything better) then go and follow me. There’s not a lot there yet but watch this space!

I’ve also reset my phone, this doesn’t sound big but when you have a phone that’s running slower the minds of most British politicians it gets annoying. So with much anxiety I backed up and reset – wow what a difference. If you ever need advice on it (I’m more and android guy, but I’ve had to reset Apples in the past) then pop me a comment or email (see contacts page).

There’s a bit of fun lined up this week on Planet Simon so enjoy!

Manic Monday – Planet Simon’s Week Ahead

Today is a public holiday which means one thing (for me at least) no work! If you’re one of the hard working people that have to work today, big respect to you! I hope the day is kind to you. 😊

Things are frantic, chaotic and erratic in my life right now. In always every way there are rough seas. In the last week things at work have become darker and less inspiring. What I’m going to do about this I’m not sure but it’s made me think about the character of those I work for.

Finding time for writing is nearly impossible but on the good side this month’s magazine is all but complete and should be out in a few days. June is next so I had better get started!!

So far this year isn’t panning out like I hoped it would and I’m wondering why, hoping that it improves and soon. I’m hoping for and moving towards change. Something has to soon right?

Simon 😊

Expansion of my social Empire

Something I’ve been pondering over for ages is how and where to move Planet Simon out to a larger audience. My big deal about is I don’t have the time to run loads of social media sites and to be honest I have no will to either as I spend too much time in front of a computer anyway.

So I’ve gone a bit halfway, I’ve created a Facebook page rather than create a whole new profile: www.facebook.com/BlogPlanetSimon

The downside is that I can’t stream all my posts to the page but I can live with this. But click on the link and I’ll put up some of the posts from on here, and a few other things besides.

Many of you also follow me on Twitter, but in case you don’t know where I am you can find me on: twitter.com/Planet_Simon

Then there is the kind of weird Instagram… I don’t really know what do do with this and I don’t have much on there, but if you’re interested then have a look: www.instagram.com/duracellguy

The newest additions to my little social media arsenal are my Pinterest and Stumbledupon pages. Like IG I’m finding these a bit weird, but come and have a look it seems that these are place to collect all kinds of stuff from all over the internet. Kinda cool… but weird.

Lastly I’m also on Wattpad, if I get 5 minutes I’ll see if I can develop some story ideas on here. Watch this space for sure!

While I love it for my bloggies to see what’s going on elsewhere on my planet the idea is to find new readers and reach out to a wider audience. I have no idea if it will work… we’ll see I guess!

I hope you’re all well!

Simon 🙂

 

March begins – A Planet Simon update

So here we are at March! Well in truth we’re getting on for nearly halfway through the month, so once again I’m late to the welcome party.

This is part of the problem… time or lack thereof!

At this time things are really busy and I get the sense that I’ve taken on too much, but you know you only live once and all that. I’ve not been about much in the last couple of weeks and this is unfortunately likely to be a fairly common thing as I drop internet time to deal with life’s challenges (they’re not even  interesting challenges).

But I still see you guys about and I love that you guys are still about and I’m keeping an eye on you. So I will still see you around!

Keep well and keep smiling!
