Post ’20th of Feb. 2014. – post 2 of 2′
Hey hey kids!
I really need to get some followers for my blog, so as a favour could you copy and paste my link to every social media site, asking that one and all globally hit the follow button on my blog please.
Why, I just sat through six hours of a seminar at the University of Western Australia on publishing for print and social media; print and ebooks were the base theme of the day.
As a result, the more followers you have, and comments you have received via social media is now listed in CV’s when publishing houses take on new authors, as a form of proof that the manuscript before them is from a writer who is good enough to have a largish number of followers, giving them, the publishers, a small confidence vote that the author & manuscript are worthy of following up on.
Post ’20th of Feb. 2014. – post 1 of 2′ will take a bit of a while to get squared off. Theoretically I should have it sorted by this evening.
So, in the interim, read on below. Clicking on the picture above once you have finished reading, will give you some tunes and a clip.
Cheers groovy movers,
Who says phobias have to be weird? Everyone’s scared.
The fear of being or staying single. You know, like, forever.
The fear of being forgotten, ignored, or abandoned. This phobia has a theme song.
A fear of slime. Watching old episodes of You Can’t Do That on Television might be just what the doctor ordered.
The fear of being laughed at. Incidentally, there’s no fear of being laughed with.
The fear of growing old. You’ll grow into—and out of—it.
The fear of speaking in public. Statistics say it’s the #1 phobia of Americans, followed by thanatophobia, fear of death.
The fear of Greek terms or complex scientific terminology. Perhaps it’s just fear of mispronouncing them!
The fear of failure or defeat. Hard to overcome. Harder to say.
The fear of childbirth. If you don’t suffer from this, you’re probably a man.
A fear of long waits. See also: fear of going to the DMV.
A fear of change. Often irrationally coupled with fear of things staying the same.
The fear of dark wooded areas or of forests at night. This one’s endorsed by the horror movie industry.
A fear of gaining weight. Interestingly, there’s no official fear of going to the gym. (Gymnophobia is the fear of nudity.)
The fear of being stared at. Does not include being stared at admiringly.
The fear or abnormal dislike of politicians. A truly bipartisan concern.
A fear of relatives. This tends to flare up during the holidays.
