Selling Your Books Online show

Selling Your Books OnlineJoin Now to Follow

Since I've been self-publishing and blogging for over a decade now, it's only right that you should benefit from all the hard knocks, scraped pride, and quiet cussing I've had to do in order to figure this all out. With over a dozen-dozen books published, it's pretty simple now for me to write, edit, and publish books. The next case to crack is getting them to sell better. If you're interested in some extra passive income every month, maybe there is something here for you as well. Join me on this journey...

Mixed Mental Arts show

Mixed Mental ArtsJoin Now to Follow

For all of human history, we've been trying to figure out what humanity's superpower is. It's clear that we've outpaced every other animal on the planet but how? We're not the biggest, the fastest or the strongest. It turns out our superpower is our social intelligence. We have an amazing capacity to learn from each other. As kids, we're like little sponges blindly copying culture from the people around us. The cultures into which we were all born evolved to fit very old agricultural environments. Each contains timeless wisdom about human affairs but none of them is ideally suited to navigating the ever-changing environment in which we find ourselves. So, what do we do? We accept that we are all in unfamiliar territory and that nobody knows what they're doing. In fact, we're all just making it up as we go along. To a certain extent, that's all humanity has ever been doing. The goal of Mixed Mental Arts is to steal the best cultural software from everywhere and apply the core principle of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do "Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own." Welcome to the dojo! We're excited to learn from you.

Podcasten – CirkelpoddenJoin Now to Follow

Det här är en bokcirkelpodcast. Vi riktar oss till dig som är barn, ungdom, pedagog, förälder eller egentligen vilken människa som helst som helt enkelt tycker om barn- och ungdomslitteratur för det är det vi kommer att läsa! Vi som kommer att uttala oss vitt och brett, ibland utan sans, är Karolina Persson och Ida Andersson. Vi två arbetar båda som barn- och ungdomsbibliotekarier på Gislaveds Bibliotek i Gislaveds kommun. Då och då kommer dessutom en och annan noga utvald gäst skymta förbi. Cirkelpodden är ett projekt i samarbete mellan Gislaveds bibliotek och Länsbiblioteket i Jönköpings län.

Bagged and Bored show

Bagged and BoredJoin Now to Follow

Bagged and Bored was started by Chris as a comic and pop-culture blog, seeking to share his love with as many people as possible he contacted his two best friends Paul and John to help spread the word. Soon realizing that they had a lot more to say than a simple website would allow, the Bagged and Bored Crew took their thoughts and audibly recorded them making them available on iTunes as the Bagged and Bored Cast for more people to experience. To inform as well as entertain. It's the Bagged and Bored goal to share our love of comics, movies, video games and of course beer with as many people as possible. Hopefully while getting a few laughs in as well.
