Best Quotes at the Story@Home conference

Sometimes, great opportunities just seem to fall into your lap.

Such was this past Friday and Saturday. I attended another great conference. This one was specific to genealogy, family history and blogging. I learned some great things and met some even greater people!

Allow me to share with you my favorite quotes; quotes, by the way that you can apply to your life, whether you're a writer or not!

"Never miss an opportunity to give a compliment" (Carol Rice, owner of Cherish Bound) AND "Sharing stories provides others with a safety net."

"There is a time for you to take care of your children, and a time for your children to take care of you" (Syd Lieberman, Storyteller).

(In regards to your weight). "If you can't lose it, decorate it" (Kim Weitkamp, Storyteller).

"'Fire' the naysayers in your life" (Rustin Banks, BlogFrog).

"Whatever I don't know, I'm going to find out" (Heather Madder, Inspirational Speaker).

"Remember the 90/20 rule" Jana Parkin, (Inspirational speaker and artist). I LOVE this rule. In a nutshell, it goes like this: You work for 90 minutes and take a 20 minute break. That way you don't get burned out and actually have more energy in your day; you feel as if you've been given extra time.

"What kind of writing do you like reading? What you enjoy is probably what you've good at writing" (DeNae Handy, Inspirational Speaker).

"Balance out your blog with original content, another's content, and fun stuff (conversation)" (Michael Reynolds, President/CEO of SpinWeb).

Enjoy your day!
