5 reasons to mine your social media comments for blog post content


I’ve already talked about why I think repurposing is the bee’s knees A month or so back, I waxed lyrical about why repurposing is so damn powerful.  I mentioned that once you’ve written a piece of content, you can reuse it over and over again, in all kinds of different formats. You can: Turn a […]

Time to get clear: the Crystal Clarity manifesto for 2016


Until yesterday, I figured that manifestos just weren’t a “Tanja” thing I tried once to write a manifesto. Really I did. It was almost a year ago, and it was for my introvert mentoring website. It was supposed to be a short, simple thing: the Gospel according to Tanja in a few quick paragraphs. Unfortunately, […]

Looking ahead into 2016


It’s not ALL retrospective here at Crystal Clarity My post last week was a pretty retrospective one (not unexpected in a yearly review, granted). But I want you to know I’m not JUST looking backward right now. I mentioned late in that post that I didn’t want to make the mistake of trying to plan […]

“So that happened”: 2015 in review at Crystal Clarity


Raise your hand if your 2015 just didn’t go the way you’d intended it to… Back in January, I had BIG plans for the year. I’d decided that THIS was the year my introvert mentoring and coaching business was going to totally take off. I’d planned a series of programme launches – one every three […]

Resource Review: Planners that are fun… one year on


Remember my planner review this time last year? If you weren’t a Crystal Clarity reader back then, you can check out the “Planners that are Fun and Get things Done” post now. Just don’t… y’know… click any of those links within the post, because they’re all WAY outdated now!  Anyway. So. I thought it would […]

Getting it just right: being the first two-week review of Operation Sanity Restoration


OK, so y’all are familiar with Operation Sanity Restoration, right? Last week’s Fall down seven times, stand up eight post generated a crazy number of comments.  I got the impression from most of them that y’all know exactly how I felt when I wrote it. I also got the impression that you’re interested in seeing […]

Fall down seven times, stand up eight: trying out a new productivity system


Last week, I realised I NEEDED a new work practices system It’s never easy to acknowledge that what you’re doing just isn’t freaking working. OK, it might be for some people – and I envy them – but for me, it often takes a while. I mentioned in Monday’s post about Tina’s Lightning Session tarot […]

Gentle Advice for Writers: a guest post from Corie Weaver


The Usual Suspects Writers’ forums are often filled with hard and fast advice. “Get your word count completed in the morning, first thing.” “Write no matter what else is going on.” Stories of single mothers of six children who heroically get up an extra two hours early to write before fixing all those breakfasts and […]

A few changes in the works: responding to the demands of reality


I’m considering a couple of possible changes to the way I do things I let my Crystal Writing Tips readers know about these potential changes earlier this week. However, I figured they were important enough to deserve a write-up here on the blog as well.  If you have any thoughts on any of them, I’d […]

Resource review: SurveyMonkey’s free survey tool


Surveys are one of my favourite client feedback tools I’ve been using them pretty much since I first started Crystal Clarity – although I try not to hit people with them too often. I see them as a really great way to get feedback from a whole load of people into one place.  And then once […]
