Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Promising Blog Award

Blogging is a unique way to communicate with, what could be, a wide and diversified international audience. For people who have something to say, blogging is a wonderful vehicle. Blogging allows anybody to express themselves without cost and with little restriction. However, it does take time and energy to develop a readership; which is why I encourage all serious new bloggers to follow my 14 Rules to Increase Blog Readership and to participate in my "Spread the Word Directory." Now, there are search engines and various other programs that can help in attaining “traffic.” The way I see it there is a huge difference between “traffic” and “readers.” I am far more focused on establishing “readers.”

I believe that new and talented loggers need encouragement and support. Until an audience and a community can be established, blogging can be a frustrating experience. Finding your way can take time and many new bloggers fall by the wayside in the critical first three months of their blog's existence.

My best advise is to stick to it and don't give up. Blog for yourself because you love blogging. Blog with passion, because without passion blogging will get old fast. Do what you can to find your audience and if you are talented and have something worthwhile to say, it will happen, especially if you follow my advise (14 Rules & Spread the Word Directory).

I have witnessed many blogs fall victim to the perceived lack of interest in their blogs because of their lack of readers and comments. This is sad because more times than naught, perceived lack of interest is because nobody knows that you exist.

Because of this heavy new blogger drop-out rate I have created this "Promising Blog Award" called "Keep On Truckin." Receiving this award means that I, or one of my friends, have recognized your potential and with your perseverance, so will others.

I will present this award as I become aware of new and promising blogs. There are no hard and fast rules. Some of what I look for is: content, layout, style, flow, dedication, passion, and "are you having fun?" I will be relying on my own discoveries as well as the recommendations of my friends.

To my friends: I encourage everyone who reads this post to inform me of promising new blogs that you come across. I will check them out and if I agree I will present the award.

To all prospective award winners: Please leave me a comment with a link to your site and I will review your blog and make a determination.

To all award winners: Please copy the code below and place this award on your site. I also strongly suggest that you place the entire list of winners on your site as well. This will insure an ever growing exposure for promising new blogs. Now, “Keep on Truckin...”
