Christianity did not become a major religion by the quality of its truth, but by the quantity of its violence. I know if you are christian that you are denying this, but is it true? You know it is. And within your heart you also know that your religion is your best justification for discriminating against other humans without knowing a thing about them. Oh my! by marcia

This is the witch of childhood or so we thought--not so scary by day--but by night she waits in your closet. She's waits by the side of your bed. She waits to climb on top of you so she can ride you into oblivion. We all know the hag. We've all seen her. She's never left us. When you hear that scabble in the darkness just before sleep. She's there. Look, look at the shadow near the mirror moving toward you... by twila

You are my love of a lifetime.. my soulmate and my purpose.. we were put together because we are meant to be... we took a detour many years ago.. but we've been given a second chance at true love..

SARAH YOUNG DEVOTIONAL (JESUS CALLING) - Do not be surprised by the fiery attacks on your mind. When you struggle to find Me and to live in My Peace, don’t let discouragement set in. You are engaged in massive warfare, spiritually speaking. The evil one abhors your closeness to Me, and his demonic underlings are determined to destroy our intimacy. When you find yourself in the thick of battle, call upon My Name: “Jesus, help me!” At that instant, the battle becomes Mine; your role is simply to trust Me as I fight for you. My Name, properly used, has unlimited Power to bless and protect. At the end of time, every knee will bow (in heaven, on earth, and under the earth), when My Name is proclaimed. People who have used “Jesus” as a shoddy swear word will fall down in terror on that awesome day. But all those who have drawn near Me through trustingly uttering My Name will be filled with inexpressible and glorious Joy. This is your great hope, as you await My return. Ephesians 6:12; For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. 1Samuel 17:4; And everyone assembled here will know that the LORD rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the LORD's battle, and he will give you to us!" Philippians 2:9-10; Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 1Peter 1:8-9; You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls. by Guitano Bucci

Ya Allah - Bless me under the same roof with the one who never gets tired of coming closer to You. Let his heart make this heart of mine long for You, by him just being around me. Let his soul make my soul strive every day and become perfect in Your sight ya Rabb. Unite us and let us be the couple who works together to make it to Jannah one day with Your permission. Let us remind each other, when one of us forgets the purpose of our lives in this dunya. Let us make each other smile, when one of us forgets to smile. Let us push each other to our goals, when one of us wants to give up. Let us motivate each other, when one of us are in lack of motivation. Let us remind each other to make other people happy, when one of us are dissapointed by someone. Let us remind each other about the akhira, when one of us are too concerned about this dunya. Let us ya Rabb - Just let us be the perfect couple, not in the sight of people but in Your sight ya Allah. by sharon.smi

"It was the first and only time I yelled at you. I spat fire in your face and you fizzed in the heat. You popped under the pressure like I hoped you would; I expected the spill to bring us closer. I thought I was encouraging you to open up to me by forcing you out of the bottle. But we never managed to properly hear each other again with all that ringing in our ears." — J. Bird by joy

Be aware of what you are thinking today. Did you know that you can choose what you think? You can also choose to not dwell on every thought that comes into your mind. You can take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. You have the ability to control your thinking. Do not allow your thoughts to have control over you today.

Inspiration for the Home
While there's no right or wrong way to blog, great content is the key to  blogging success. But share-worthy content isn't always easy to come up  with or create, is it? Today I'm coming to the rescue with 50 blog post  ideas that you can use to provide your readers with quality content and  keep them coming back for more.     1. Share a behind-the-scenes look of your blog or business. Everyone       loves getting sneak peeks of what your office looks like, photos of       things "in the works," and looks at rough drafts. Michaela Noelle did       this on her blog last week and it was a great success! It also adds a       little personality to your blog and allows your readers to connect       with you.    2. Write a blog series on your process. I did this with my creative       process last month and it was a huge hit. Readers love to find out       how you do what you do, so highlight each step of a project in a blog       series and walk them through your process. This is helpful for       readers who are in a similar field and for potential clients and       customers.     3. Roundup helpful posts and link to other bloggers. Readers also like       finding out which blogs you follow along with and what posts you find       interesting, so link to other bloggers and share articles and posts       that might be helpful for your audience. (This is also a great way to       connect and network with other bloggers. I can see which bloggers       refer to me in my analytics and I almost always reach out to them!)        Jenny Purr does a great job with link-ups.    4. Write a post on how you got started. We all love a good success       story. Share your experience and tell your readers how you got here.       Plus, it's fun to document your journey and remember where you       started. And on that note...    5. Share tips on how to become successful in your industry. Which       resources and advice have helped you get to where you are? Don't keep       all of those tips to yourself - share the love with your readers!    6. Feature a professional in your field. This could take the form of       reaching out to someone for a Q&A on your blog (like this Coffee Date       with Molly Jaques) or just highlighting someone in your industry that       you admire. This is also a great networking opportunity.    7. Host a giveaway. Readers love getting free things, whether it's       content, entertainment, or goodies. Create excitement around your       blog and reward your readers for following along with you by hosting       a giveaway! Giveaways are also great marketing tools for your blog.     8. Write a polarizing post about something you may not agree with in       your field. While it's easy for all of us to go along with the crowd       and do what's popular, there may be some things in your industry that       you want to do differently. Write about it! (Please note that I'm not       promoting negativity, complaining, ranting, or bashing - there's a       way to go about this tastefully and respectfully.) Here are some       great polarizing posts: Time for Change, 3 things I'm no longer doing       for my website, One Word That May Be Hindering Your Business    9. Make a list of things you wish you had known when ... Hindsight is       20/20 and we all have the opportunity to learn from others' mistakes.       Share a handful of things you wish you had known when you first       started blogging, writing, designing, doing calligraphy,       photographing weddings, etc. Need an example? Read this post.    10. Share a day-in-the-life post. We all like to see how successful       people go about their day. Write down your day (without going into       too much detail) and give your readers an insider look! Breanna Rose       does this in her Creative Diaries series, and they are some of my       favorite posts.   11. Ask someone to guest post about something specific in your industry.        We never have all the answers and it's fun to get advice from other       people that are doing great things in your field. It's also fun to       highlight talented people and bring attention to their business. You       could even look at it as a networking and marketing opportunity and       do a trade - ask someone to guest post on your blog in return for       guest posting on theirs.    12. Write an informational post about your blogging platform. Readers       love learning about how you do what you do. Write a review of your       blogging platform, the things you like and don't like, and whether or       not you would recommend it. This post about Squarespace has been one       of my most popular posts and I continue to get emails and feedback       about it!   13. Roundup and highlight the tools you use in your trade. I said it in       #12 but it's worth repeating: readers love learning how you do what       you do. Make a list of things you use everyday and share it on the       blog! Here's my example.   14. Teach your readers about something you're an expert in. We all love       to learn from the pros and get insider information. Content like this       will be shared over and over again and gain a lot of feedback.   15. Share some takeaways from a recent experience, workshop, or event.        Have you attended an event related to your field in the last few       months? Share it on the blog and highlight your favorite moments!       Your readers will love reading about your experience and the       workshop/conference may even share your post, too.   16. Make a list of things people should avoid in your industry.        Sometimes it's even more helpful to learn about what not to do.       Share some common mistakes that people make and how to avoid them. I       was a little leery of sharing my Top 10 Design Mistakes to Avoid, but       I was pleasantly surprised by the feedback!   17. Highlight milestones, launches, and important events. It's always       good to have a reason for people to get excited about your       blog/business. Make a big deal out of changes and events by featuring       them on the blog!   18. Explain the meaning behind your blog/business name. Some names are       straightforward, but some have a fun story behind them. Turn it into       a blog post and share the story behind your blog/business name. (The       meaning of the Elle & Company is mentioned in this post.)   19. Feature the people you work with. It's rare that we run a blog or       business completely on our own; there are usually people who work for       us or with us to help us keep things running, even if it's just by       their encouragement. Use your blog to highlight them, promote them,       and feature their work. I featured my biggest fan and business       partner a few months ago, and it's one of my favorite posts to-date.   20. Make a list of things people may not know about your trade. There's       always information out there that people are surprised to hear. For       example, non-designers may not know that using Comic Sans is one of       the biggest no-no's in this industry. Create a list of "did you know"       items and share it with your readers. I guarantee it will be a hit.   21. Write a review of a product you use often. If you're a photographer,       write about your favorite lenses. If you're a designer, share about       your favorite software. If you're an entrepreneur, share the programs       you use for project management and accounting. People are always on       the lookout for helpful products and tools - share your feedback with       them.    22. Repurpose old blog posts with a roundup. Chances are that you've       spent hours on blog posts that are now buried in your archives. Share       them again by doing a roundup! A Beautiful Mess does this at the end       of every month to highlight their posts and I did this recently with       my Weekly Truth backgrounds. Don't let those great posts go to       waste.    23. Repurpose an old blog post with a follow-up. Can you add onto       something you've already done? Write a sequel or a "part 2" to an old       blog post and make use out of that content again.   24. Repurpose an old blog post with a revision. Do you have a post that       you wrote a couple years ago that could be revamped or reused? Make       some revisions and post it again!   25. Share about how you use a certain social media outlet for your       blog/business. There are so many social media outlets out there and       everyone uses them a little differently. Share about one of your       favorites and give your readers tips on how you use it for your       blog/business. Here are some examples of posts I've done on        Instagram and Pinterest.   26. Turn an FAQ or inquiry into a blog post. Is there a common question       that readers ask you by email or in your post comments? Turn it into       a blog post! An email from an Elle & Company reader regarding content       actually inspired this blog post. If it's something that multiple       readers have asked you about, chances are their are more people who       would love to know more about it, too.   27. Tell an interesting story. We all love a good tale and we all enjoy       being entertained. Do you have a "you're not going to believe this"       story? Share it on your blog!   28. Write an informative post on how people can work best with you. Are       you a calligrapher, photographer, or wedding planner? Share some tips       for brides on how to make the process as simple as possible. Are you       an interior designer? Share some insights on how clients and       designers can maintain a great working relationship. This is helpful       for current and future clients and it's also helpful for those in       your field who are just getting started.   29. Create and share a free resource. We all love free things. That's why       we follow along with blogs in the first place! Find creative ways to       share free resources with your audience. I do this with my Weekly       Truth series and it's been a hit (especially on Pinterest!)    30. Find a creative way to link up with other bloggers/business owners.        There are several ways you can go about this one. You could create a       writing challenge like Bailey did with her Blogtember series, start a       fun linkup like What I Wore Wednesday, or partner with another blog       friend like Michaela and I did for the Home Suite Home project. The       possibilities are endless, so get creative and come up with something       distinctly you!   31. Create a blog series on a project. People love following along with       step-by-step transformations (that's why Young House Love was my       favorite blog for so many years!). Are you working on a project for a       client, remodeling your home, or training for a marathon? Share about       it on the blog and show sneak peeks of the transformation as you go.   32. Highlight one of your products or services. This is your blog; use it       to your advantage! Come up with creative ways to highlight your       business and your products. This could take the shape of a "how-to"       post or you could pose them as a solution to a particular problem.   33. Create an infographic. Not only are graphics and photos more       interesting and entertaining, they're sharable. Even if you aren't       able to draw one yourself, compile information on a topic in your       field and come up with a creative way to display it. I did this with       the feedback I received from a reader survey this past summer and        the infographic was a hit! Which perfectly transitions into my next       idea...   34. Take a reader survey and come up with a unique way to share the       results. Not only is this feedback helpful for you, but readers like       to see who else is following along with you. A Beautiful Mess and        Young House Love always do this well.    35. Share your mission statement and blog/business strategy. Write a post       on what's at the heart of your blog or business. Why do you do what       you do? What motivates you?   36. Define or share your take on your industry. For example, many people       use the term "branding" but designers approach that subject       differently depending on who you talk to. I wrote a post on branding        after I officially launched my design services this past summer       to approach the subject in my own terms. Do you have your own take on       your field? Share it on your blog!   37. Find a creative way to share tidbits of your life lately. There are a       million and ten ways you could approach this, so come up with       something original! Some of my favorite examples include Awkward and       Awesome and Clara Conversations.   38. Create a "through the years" or flashback post. Is there a tradition       or event that you participate in year after year? Your readers would       probably love to see it on your blog. An example?  This post by       Justin and Mary on their past Halloween costumes.    39. Give away some secrets of your trade. Many people shy away from       sharing the information that has made them successful for fear that       it could create competition, but it's had the opposite effect in my       experience. Share what you know! If you do what you do well, you'll       have nothing to worry about. Readers will love gaining your great       insight and information.    40. Teach people how to make something unique. We all have a DIY board on       Pinterest, don't we? There's something in each one of us that loves       learning how to make something that we wouldn't have thought to make       before.    41. Write about some common misconceptions in your industry. Are there       things that people assume about your business or trade that aren't       accurate? Address them in a blog post!   42. Ask your readers for feedback. Do you have a question or dilemma? Let       your readers participate by sharing it on the blog. Michaela did this       with her readers in our Home Suite Home project when she asked them       to vote on which design concepts they liked best.   43. Share your sources of inspiration. We see this all over the place on       blogs, but think of your own creative way to make an inspiration post       distinctly your own. I do this on my blog a couple time each month       in Today's Top 3.    44. Solve a problem. Is there a particular issue that keeps coming up in       your industry time and again? Provide a solution to it! Some       examples? Braid Creative wrote a post on organizational tools for       creative entrepreneurs and Ashley wrote a post for photographers on       organizing their email inbox.   45. Write a post on the best (or worst!) advice you've ever received.        This could be both helpful and hilarious for your audience.    46. Highlight the best (or worst!) moments since starting your       blog/business. Again, this could be both helpful and hilarious for       your audience.   47. Share your recent projects. Blogging is a great marketing tool. Use       it to your advantage and highlight your latest work! Not only is it       fun for your readers to follow along with, but you never know if       potential customers are following along with you. Think of it as free       advertising for your portfolio.    48. Share a testimonial or success story. It could be about your       experience with another professional or a clients' experience with       you. Word of mouth is the best advertisement.   49. Surprise your readers with something unexpected. Do you have a hidden       talent or trait that your readers might not know about? Find a way to       highlight it on your blog! I did this in my "That's a Rap" post and       although it was totally random, it gave my readers a glimpse of my       personality outside of blogging and designing.   50. Create a long list of something specific to your       trade/blog/industry/field. Case in point.   That's a wrap! Which ideas are you most excited to try? Do you have any  suggestions for no-fluff, content-rich blog posts that I may not have  mentioned? by Joao.Almeida.d.Eca
Joao.Almeida.d.Eca
Joao.Almeida.d.Eca While there's no right or wrong way to blog, great content is the key to blogging success. But share-worthy content isn't always easy to come up with or create, is it? Today I'm coming to the rescue with 50 blog post ideas that you can use to provide your readers with quality content and keep them coming back for more. 1. Share a behind-the-scenes look of your blog or business. Everyone loves getting sneak peeks of what your office looks like, photos of things "in the works," and looks at rough drafts. Michaela Noelle did this on her blog last week and it was a great success! It also adds a little personality to your blog and allows your readers to connect with you. 2. Write a blog series on your process. I did this with my creative process last month and it was a huge hit. Readers love to find out how you do what you do, so highlight each step of a project in a blog series and walk them through your process. This is helpful for readers who are in a similar field and for potential clients and customers.  3. Roundup helpful posts and link to other bloggers. Readers also like finding out which blogs you follow along with and what posts you find interesting, so link to other bloggers and share articles and posts that might be helpful for your audience. (This is also a great way to connect and network with other bloggers. I can see which bloggers refer to me in my analytics and I almost always reach out to them!) Jenny Purr does a great job with link-ups. 4. Write a post on how you got started. We all love a good success story. Share your experience and tell your readers how you got here. Plus, it's fun to document your journey and remember where you started. And on that note... 5. Share tips on how to become successful in your industry. Which resources and advice have helped you get to where you are? Don't keep all of those tips to yourself - share the love with your readers! 6. Feature a professional in your field. This could take the form of reaching out to someone for a Q&A on your blog (like this Coffee Date with Molly Jaques) or just highlighting someone in your industry that you admire. This is also a great networking opportunity. 7. Host a giveaway. Readers love getting free things, whether it's content, entertainment, or goodies. Create excitement around your blog and reward your readers for following along with you by hosting a giveaway! Giveaways are also great marketing tools for your blog.  8. Write a polarizing post about something you may not agree with in your field. While it's easy for all of us to go along with the crowd and do what's popular, there may be some things in your industry that you want to do differently. Write about it! (Please note that I'm not promoting negativity, complaining, ranting, or bashing - there's a way to go about this tastefully and respectfully.) Here are some great polarizing posts: Time for Change, 3 things I'm no longer doing for my website, One Word That May Be Hindering Your Business 9. Make a list of things you wish you had known when ... Hindsight is 20/20 and we all have the opportunity to learn from others' mistakes. Share a handful of things you wish you had known when you first started blogging, writing, designing, doing calligraphy, photographing weddings, etc. Need an example? Read this post.  10. Share a day-in-the-life post. We all like to see how successful people go about their day. Write down your day (without going into too much detail) and give your readers an insider look! Breanna Rose does this in her Creative Diaries series, and they are some of my favorite posts. 11. Ask someone to guest post about something specific in your industry.  We never have all the answers and it's fun to get advice from other people that are doing great things in your field. It's also fun to highlight talented people and bring attention to their business. You could even look at it as a networking and marketing opportunity and do a trade - ask someone to guest post on your blog in return for guest posting on theirs.  12. Write an informational post about your blogging platform. Readers love learning about how you do what you do. Write a review of your blogging platform, the things you like and don't like, and whether or not you would recommend it. This post about Squarespace has been one of my most popular posts and I continue to get emails and feedback about it! 13. Roundup and highlight the tools you use in your trade. I said it in #12 but it's worth repeating: readers love learning how you do what you do. Make a list of things you use everyday and share it on the blog! Here's my example. 14. Teach your readers about something you're an expert in. We all love to learn from the pros and get insider information. Content like this will be shared over and over again and gain a lot of feedback. 15. Share some takeaways from a recent experience, workshop, or event.  Have you attended an event related to your field in the last few months? Share it on the blog and highlight your favorite moments! Your readers will love reading about your experience and the workshop/conference may even share your post, too. 16. Make a list of things people should avoid in your industry.  Sometimes it's even more helpful to learn about what not to do. Share some common mistakes that people make and how to avoid them. I was a little leery of sharing my Top 10 Design Mistakes to Avoid, but I was pleasantly surprised by the feedback! 17. Highlight milestones, launches, and important events. It's always good to have a reason for people to get excited about your blog/business. Make a big deal out of changes and events by featuring them on the blog! 18. Explain the meaning behind your blog/business name. Some names are straightforward, but some have a fun story behind them. Turn it into a blog post and share the story behind your blog/business name. (The meaning of the Elle & Company is mentioned in this post.) 19. Feature the people you work with. It's rare that we run a blog or business completely on our own; there are usually people who work for us or with us to help us keep things running, even if it's just by their encouragement. Use your blog to highlight them, promote them, and feature their work. I featured my biggest fan and business partner a few months ago, and it's one of my favorite posts to-date. 20. Make a list of things people may not know about your trade. There's always information out there that people are surprised to hear. For example, non-designers may not know that using Comic Sans is one of the biggest no-no's in this industry. Create a list of "did you know" items and share it with your readers. I guarantee it will be a hit. 21. Write a review of a product you use often. If you're a photographer, write about your favorite lenses. If you're a designer, share about your favorite software. If you're an entrepreneur, share the programs you use for project management and accounting. People are always on the lookout for helpful products and tools - share your feedback with them.  22. Repurpose old blog posts with a roundup. Chances are that you've spent hours on blog posts that are now buried in your archives. Share them again by doing a roundup! A Beautiful Mess does this at the end of every month to highlight their posts and I did this recently with my Weekly Truth backgrounds. Don't let those great posts go to waste.  23. Repurpose an old blog post with a follow-up. Can you add onto something you've already done? Write a sequel or a "part 2" to an old blog post and make use out of that content again. 24. Repurpose an old blog post with a revision. Do you have a post that you wrote a couple years ago that could be revamped or reused? Make some revisions and post it again! 25. Share about how you use a certain social media outlet for your blog/business. There are so many social media outlets out there and everyone uses them a little differently. Share about one of your favorites and give your readers tips on how you use it for your blog/business. Here are some examples of posts I've done on Instagram and Pinterest. 26. Turn an FAQ or inquiry into a blog post. Is there a common question that readers ask you by email or in your post comments? Turn it into a blog post! An email from an Elle & Company reader regarding content actually inspired this blog post. If it's something that multiple readers have asked you about, chances are their are more people who would love to know more about it, too. 27. Tell an interesting story. We all love a good tale and we all enjoy being entertained. Do you have a "you're not going to believe this" story? Share it on your blog! 28.
