Now that January has all but gone (WHERE?????) and the new year well underway things are starting to happen again. School holidays are finishing this week. Having children who are now well into their twenties I no longer take a lot of notice of that. But I am working on my change of strategy when it comes to my approach to the schools and hoping that 'The Western Australian' newspaper might be a bit of help with this and will be prepared to act on this one or two weeks into the new school year.
As you would realise all the notes that are being entered here and on 'Bullseye's' facebook page, Twitter and Linkedin are the thoughts/ideas of someone (me) who is a newcomer to the world of publishing and doing her own marketing. It is very much a learning curve and as I am meeting some wonderful people and making some excellent contacts (eg Jimmy Barnes), working on new suggestions/throughts and preparing to put them into action I am simply putting my thoughts and actions 'out there' this way so the public can follow (those who are interested).
As mentioned the more support I can get the better. I think my main focus at the moment is on the schools and education system. I am now also working on my autobiography which I am being asked about.
Much to my surprise an article on 'Bullseye' and me was recently published in the Perth community newspaper, 'The Western Suburbs Weekly' last week. It is the same article that was published in 'The Melville Herald' a few months ago. A very pleasant surprise yesterday.
I have also had contact from the 'Western Australian' newspaper and it looks like they are going to do a review. Have just sent a couple of copies off to the 'Sacramento Book Reviewers' for them to do a review and another copy to 'ONYA' Magazine in Melbourne as they have also said they will also do a review. It is all starting to happen again which is great.
A new year is here (well and truly) and as people settle back into 'normal' routine, a few more major things are starting to happen again. I now have two more people writing testimonials for me, which is fantastic. The anti-bullying group, 'Enough is Enough': www.enoughisenough.org.auis adding Bullseye to its website, along with an article about me apparently, which is FANtastic. In turn I am helping them where and when I can. With the new school term beginning in a couple of weeks I will be starting a much 'heavier' campaign in contacting as many schools in WA and SA (initially) as possible but changing my strategy, as mentioned in an earlier blog entry. I am also starting to gain more support from the public which is another huge plus...but can never have too many....not in this particular fight. Everyone is welcome. All great so far.
(NOTE: Apologies, the previous post was meant to be about a week ago ... the blog editor [Lannah's daughter] got a little sidetracked ... whoops!)
Hello again. I think the peace and quiet of the Festive Season is coming to an end. I have been receiving replies from a few people I had emailed prior to Christmas about different things to do with 'Bullseye'. All good and does mean I will be able to start putting some of my plans for the year into action shortly. Looks like I possibly have another celebrity coming onboard too. I am beginning to realise just how little I have been aware as to the extent and depth of this horrible phenomenon around the world. All the more reason to keep pushing for 'Bullseye' and my cause generally and to continue trying to encourage people who do wish to help in some way or another to contact me. The more we have the stronger we will be.
Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR. It's a brand new year (Ok, so the first three days have all but vanished already...ouch) and many, many plans to put into action for 'Bullseye' in the coming weeks. I am so excited about it....little things have continued to happen almost daily all through the Festive Season....all good, which is wonderful.
I have set up a second website, especially for 'Bullseye' and the fight against bullying. It has now been launched ( http://www.bullseyeandthefightagainstbullying.com ) and I am also still working on Twitter, Linkedin and ever faithful Facebook. It is all soo good....have so many plans etc.
