Even without doing any blog hopping I can just imagine all the blogs out there that are doing posts on new years resolution or about how you should be doing your business plans for the coming year. Not me! Nope, I don’t do new years resolutions and I’ve never willingly done a business plan. Sure they’re a good idea to keep people focused and to help them with building a strategy to follow but they have never interested me.
I’m not even going to do a post about how things transpired last year because I covered that in my last post, A Recap Of 2011 And Best Wishes For 2012. Instead I want to write a post that may reveal a little about myself as well as giving my readers a chance to promote their favourite post.

My Favourite All Time Posts
I reckon that pretty well gives you an idea what this post will be about. I’m hoping that in sharing my favourite all time posts you may get an inkling of what sort of things appeal to me and in knowing that perhaps a little of what makes me tick.
OK, I reckon you’ve had enough of the posts that I like and you’re champing at the bit waiting to find out exactly how you get to promote your blog? Well, it’s quite simple really, all you have to do is to leave a comment linking to your favourite post while telling us why it is that you love that post so much. Leaving just a link without a reasonable explanation will get your comment deleted so put a bit of thought into it. Remember that leaving a good comment will have more chance of getting others to read that post.
Oh, and you may want to tell me which of my posts, if any, you liked and why?
Life is so short. We are born, we live for a time and then, when our time is done, we die. There are those who make a name for themselves in that short time, who people remember, perhaps because of some incredible feat they performed, their contribution to mankind or even because of some atrocity they had committed. The vast majority however are only remembered by those few who’s lives they may have touched.
I belong to the latter. I know that once I have gone I will only be truly remembered by family and close friends. I came to that realisation many years ago and I am fine with that. Even though I will leave no lasting memory once I have been reduced to dust I have vowed that at the very least while I am upon this earth I will be the best that I can be. That mentality has always helped me in my business and is currently helping me in my new job.
In Blogging As In Life Always Give Your Best
From my first day on the job I gave my new bosses 110%. I always start a few minutes early and never leave before my time is due. I never take extra or longer breaks and always make sure that I do the job to the best of my ability. My efforts have not gone unnoticed either. I have been rewarded with more hours and I am also being treated with respect by my co-workers. The reasons i’m this way is twofold. The first being its the way I was brought up and the second is because as a former employer I know what it is like to have staff that slack off and so I can’t possibly do the same to my employer.
This means a lot to me because even though I may not be remembered when my time here is done, at least while I am walking amongst the living there is no-one talking behind my back telling others what a slacker I am. If anything I am setting an example for others, even though they may not see it or make the effort to follow in my footsteps.
The same goes for my blog. I try to maintain a level of professionalism and honesty. I never abuse my readers or commentators and never belittle anyone in my posts. The same goes when commenting on another’s blog. I always try to conduct myself in the manner of a good guest. Where a guest would listen to the conversation I would read the post and as a good guest would contribute to the conversation I try to contribute by leaving a good comment. I would never misbehave by abusing my host or any of his other guests.
Who knows, when I finally bite the dust perhaps people won’t remember my name but they will remember something about me. You know, something like; “Do you remember that blogger, you know what’s his name? The one that had a way with words, had a great sense of humour and used some amazing photos in his post. I think he was an Aussie or something?” If that ever happens you just tell that person that my name is Sire
