“I had no idea what a reblog was but it certainly peaked my interest. I knew that I wanted to grow my audience, and yes, I had no idea where to start. Something about this reblogging idea kept pulling at me. I knew Cristian Mihai had a successful blog with over 120,000 followers. Why not? I thought. Why not invest in myself. I love to write and if I could invest a small amount of money to watch my stats and followers grow, wouldn’t that be money well spent? I decided to take the plunge and give it a try. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed.Having Christian reblog my posts gave me the opportunity to experience growth in my blog traffic that would have otherwise taken months, maybe even more than a year to replicate. The boost in traffic on my blog has reignited my passion for blogging. Thank you Cristian. I’m sure I’ll be purchasing more reblogs from you in the future, you have given me the opportunity to share my voice and thoughts with the world.” – Erin Cooper Reed

You can purchase as many as you want, use them when you need them. The process is simple: you simply send me the link to the posts you want reblogged via e-mail to contact [at] cristianmihai [dot] net.

That is all,

Cristian.

On challenges

“In any given moment we have to options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” – Abraham Maslow

People go through a lot. Don’t think that they don’t. All of us has to carry a certain pain, a certain tragedy. We all have our struggles, our fears, our losses. We all go through experiences that make it impossible to return to the person we used to be.

But most people don’t grow through what they go through.

Imagine being on a small boat. In the middle of the ocean. A storm comes. It badly damages the boat, but somehow you make it out of the storm alive. Now, the storm is gone. The sky is clear. No clouds. Despite being badly damaged, the boat is still afloat.

What do most people do?

Forget the storm even happened. Or prey that another one won’t ever come back. Or spend their time being afraid of another storm.

What almost no one does? Continue reading

12 Books That Will Surely Make You Cry

Art is supposed to make us feel. That’s it.

irevuo

Art is supposed to make you feel something, right? And what more can you ask from a book other than to be moved by it in such a way that you end up shedding a few tears?

Also, psychologists claim that crying is kind of good for releasing stress and making you stronger emotionally, so here are twelve books that are guaranteed to make you cry.

Are you exceptional?

art_tryingThe thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all, is inevitably that which must also make you lonely. – Lorraine Hansberry

Most people loathe solitude. Silence. The empty room. Nothing but their minds for company…

But, to paraphrase John Steinbeck, all great and precious things are built in solitude. They grow out of it. The struggle of having to tame your thoughts, to concentrate on the task at hand, to decide every minute of every day what’s important, what must be done, despite what you feel you should be doing.

Love what you do. Do what you love.

We all know this one, right? It’s one of those short and sweet sentences that sound smart and wise and in time become terrible cliches.

But there’s more to it than meets the eye.

Most people will try to find a passion and do it and do it and so on. As long as they are inspired, as long as they love what they do.

But that’s only half of it.

The other half is “love what to do.”

In other words, develop the discipline to enjoy the parts that no one really likes doing. The hard work, the frustration, the countless failures. The parts that are boring.

Example? Continue reading

Self-Publisher? You must read this post.

Those of you who have been following this blog for some time know that I’m, more or less, a one man operation. I write the books/stories, I do the interior formatting for both e-books (Kindle, Smashwords) and print books, I design the covers, and stuff like that.

Sometimes I do these kind of things for other writers too. Continue reading
