Somehow I believe that it’s human nature to dream, to imagine a better life. It’s how we evolve and develop. But dreaming is one thing, striving to achieve that dream another.
But it’s difficult, right?
To find the energy, the time, the motivation to pursue your dreams…

IF you read this post here, you know that a few things have changed on this blog.
One of them is that there are only 5 spots available for reblogs each month, and you can find them here.
Oh, and they are discounted by 50% right now. $49.99 for a reblog, instead of the usual
$99.99. The offer expires at the end of the week, so you better hurry.
If you have a blog post you are proud of and would like to be read by over 133 thousand people, now it’s your chance.

Let’s say you write a blog post. So, I choose a short snippet of that post (usually the first lines) then add a link to your post. I put this on my blog.
This way, over 133, 000 people get to see this short preview. Those who want to read more, click on the link and go to your blog.
It’s a way to gain exposure.
