My name is Patrick Coholan and I am a Canadian who blogs as his hobby. I mean it to be handy for people who take an interest work on and off the Internet and I hope that the readers who find me enjoy what I have wrote for them. Many of the photographs accompanying the blog posts I have taken myself. I do quite a bit of informal research that I bring to the table with my blog. I am also a content writer with occasional part-time work coming to me from India. I am most comfortable blogging and writing from afar.
These links are my own blog, the best of which I am presenting to you as part of this week’s WordPress Discover challenge #DiscoverWP
Participants are invited to draw inspiration from a number between one and ten. I decided on the number ten, and I was able to identify my ten most important blog posts out of them all. I also include a brief note after each post which is what I reflect I have done with the relevant blog post.
This explains my work ethic.
This explains how I feel about promoting my blog with Twitter.
This draws inspiration from healthy boundaries in more abstract language.
This explains what I do when I am on our job site.
These are my thoughts on the word, “division.”
This is how I decided to specific a direction for my blog.
This is a touch of philosophy on our lives and the Internet.
This is motivational advice.
I was trying to be heartfelt here when I was reflecting on my social media efforts.
This is a discussion about second thoughts which have come up for me.
If you enjoy this post, please “like” and/or “follow” and comment on my blog. Have a wonderful time!
Second thoughts for a blogger might include realizing that stock photos, while “free” in exchange for a membership in a stock photo site, could lead to stock photos in blog posts that represent a hurdle for the blogger who doesn’t have original photography.
Second thoughts for a social media marketer might include budget constraints on designing videos that have mass appeal, more than just straightforward infographics which, while somewhat charming in their relative capacity, are not nearly as captivating as excellent video in social media marketing.
Second thoughts might go with investing a significant amount of energy producing various six-second videos for the Twitter app Vine, which are no longer going up. The momentum became a trend.
Second thoughts might go with signing up for Twitter when this year it has made, I understand, nary a profit. If it does become a sinking ship, and I don’t think it will, it could definitely provoke second thoughts… but I think most people knew when to draw the line.
Second thoughts might go with blogging with WordPress if it turns out Wix is the more popular blogging platform of the two. I don’t think so! I want WordPress to vanquish. Second thoughts might go with choosing a losing theme for your WordPress blog… but if you need help with visual design for your blog, I think you will quickly come to terms with how to get it.
Second thoughts might go with your US Election Day voter booth selfie if you don’t know it is a criminal offense to take such a photo.
Second thoughts might result from your decision to blog instead of watching the news if you want to be an informed citizen.
Second thoughts might result from inadequate research if you are on top of what is simply too many topics at one time.
Second thoughts are not “liking” this post or clicking “follow,” or leaving a comment. I won’t have the pleasure of knowing! Thank you.

Chapter 2: Step 1 – Declutter Your Mind
OK. Let’s get started!
No matter what your goal is, no matter how easy or hard you may think it is to attain, the first step that you must take is to declutter your mind.
One of the reasons for which you still haven’t reached your writing goals, is the fact that all of what you’ve learned and heard about publishing your book or about becoming a successful writer, were implemented ideas that are now blocking their fulfillment inside you.
“I have spent most of my time worrying about things that have never happened.” ~ Mark Twain.
For this reason, it’s a great decision to first unlearn what you have learned.
Why do you need to do this? Let me briefly explain.
During our life, we’ve been brainwashed to think that certain goals are impossible to attain. I am telling you that this is one of the biggest lies that we encounter in our lives.
If you are serious about your dreams, if you really wish with all your heart to materialize your dreams, nothing… and I mean nothing can stand in your way. All you have to do is to get rid of all the garbage that was inoculated in your beliefs. Do it and don’t lose time finding out who put it in your mind, why this was done, and most of all don’t blame the ones who taught you those things. They were themselves taught by others and maybe they were well intentioned when they did it. It could have just been because they thought that, that was the ultimate truth. No matter what, this is not your problem but theirs. They were wrong, and you just started on the road to prove it to the whole world. [Read more]

Writer, translator, engineer, researcher, project manager, blogger, eternal student… these are only a few words to describe M.C. Simon.
In a recent interview she confessed:
“I am not only M.C. Simon, the writer whose goal is to rebuild in people the trust in their own forces and in the incredible powers that they received at birth; powers that, maybe they have forgotten about somewhere inside the depth of their being.
I AM all what “I am not only”, and much more! I AM who I AM. And in this form, I follow my Path to consciously touch The Absolute… The ONE who’s Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent.
The same as YOU and like any other soul that accepted in these times, the challenge to experience life inside a human body, on this wonderful planet we call Earth.”
