Best Reads #1

This post may contain affiliate links which means I'll receive a commission if you purchase through my link at no extra cost to you. Please read my full disclosure here.    

Every now and then I plan on adding this section where I share the best reads I find online. I like reading a variety of topics and want to share them in case you get something out of them as I did. Let’s get started…


Law of Attraction 101: How to Manifest Money
I follow Spirit Science and Metaphysics on Facebook and they shared this blog post. I clicked on it, and just to notice it had been written by Steve Pavlina, one of my favorite bloggers out there! The article talks about how to attract money into your life using the Law of Attraction (LOA). Basically he talks about attracting money into your life by starting from the bottom, with pennies. Every time I have been going out I have been finding pennies more constantly. Once I feel more comfortable I will move up to nickels. And that’s how it is, every time just keep moving up one coin currency, and eventually you will move up to bills. These words come from Pavlina who is a successful blogger online and makes passive income from doing so.

How I Learned To Fall Asleep In Under 1 Minute
“4-7-8” is the breathing trick. A technique that will help you fall asleep rather quickly, or at least that’s what the article says. I find myself using this trick a few times a day when I need to relax. When I head to work I take the Metromover and sometimes there’s so many people riding the train that I notice I need to slow down my breathing. This is when I remember to use the 4-7-8 trick. To me falling asleep is easy so I never used it at night time.

Top 6 Habits of Professional Writers and Bloggers
I was searching online for a way to shorten blog posts on the home page of Blogger, but instead I came across this post. The points that stood out for me most were 1 and 3. Write, and read like a writer, so true!! Sometimes I look at my old blog posts and I cringe from reading them!! How did I write like that?! And to this day I know I need to improve my writing skills but it’s all about practice and motivation. I want to spend more time on my blog and I need to read more often. At the moment I’m reading a book that my sister lent me and is the The Power of Habit, a great book so far! As for shortening the blog posts on the home page I was able to find this.

How To: DIY $10 Macro Photo Studio
I thought this was such a cool idea! An easy, cheap, DIY light tent!! Just using two things, a box and tissue paper! I think this is a great for bloggers out there and for people that sell items online. Makes your photos look so simple and quite fancy at the same time. I can already see myself using this to talk about my favorite beauty products of the month!

How to Connect Deeply with Anyone (in 5 Minutes)
You won’t understand my answers until you try it yourself. You will learn a little more about yourself but at the same time don’t care too much about its implications as everyone’s perception is different. Either way it’s fun to do!

-Clear, whitish, medium, metal edges, floating
-Wood, medium, leaning on left side of the cube
-Brownish horse, to the right of the cube, steady, nice gaze, breeze
-Different colors, between ladder and horse
-Distant, it’s going away,

Unusual Personality Test That Will Reveal Much About Your Perception of Life
Very similar to the previous test. Again don’t take the answers too literal as everyone’s perception is different. The comments are funny to read.

1. dark blue ocean, bit of scary, no view of anything
2. branches, and leaves underneath my feet, calming, soothing
3. freedom, relax, I like their noise,
4. wild and free, beautiful, my favorite animals
5. go around the wall, I want to be there
6. I will take it and drink water
7. Go to the house!!
8. I kind of like fog, I Feel it, but at the same time I want to see farther

The Alphabetizer
A simple site to make your life easier. These are options that Office Word also has available, but I find it easier to just click on my bookmarks to get to this site. The Alphabetizer is great for students or bloggers. It has many options but the two that I find myself using often is Alphabetize, and Capitalize Titles.

That’s it for now. Hopefully you found these reads as interesting as I did. Posting them here is kind of like a bookmark of my favorite articles/sites online and also my way of looking back to see the things I enjoyed reading. Until next time!
