Hello, Creatives! It’s not often I post about me on here, but today I feel compelled to. I’m honestly thankful for pretty much everything in life right now.
I’ll keep it brief.
So my name’s Jay, for those who don’t know me. I’m the guy who runs 99% Perspiration – the podcasts (both editing and hosting), the Facebook network, the Twitter, and this very blog. It’s a lot of work, and I love it. But it’s a third “job”, and it seldom gets the attention it deserves.
Hello, Creatives! Every once in a while, I like to post content by other creative people, especially emerging talent. (I should say, if you’re interested in sharing your creative posts on the 99% Perspiration blog, I’m but a message away, via Facebook or Twitter.)
Kieran Brannan is a guy I know from university; I’ve not taught him, but seen him around Spark FM, the community radio station we volunteer at together. And now, he’s graduating straight into a BBC position; a runner with BBC Scotland.
Well, I’ve long admired people who can post content about their emotions in connection with their creative self so freely; take a look around the posts here and you’ll see only positivity from me. It’s not a defence, exactly, it’s how I want to present myself online.
So Kieran took part in today’s #99PodcastHour (every Tuesday, 7pm – 8pm GMT) and shared this;
Kieran’s called his post “It Gets Better”.
Sophie Dishman, a young blogger based in Sunderland, is perhaps one of the most persistent, engaged online writers I’ve ever met. You’ve seen how irregular the posts on the 99% blog are to date, right? I envy Sophie Dishman. She is to me as a tommy gun is to a cannon.
But fear not – Sophie’s been kind enough to share some of her insight with us; a veritable “Blogging 101”, which walks you through from idea germination, some of the must-dos and the must-not-dos which I wish someone had taught me, all the way to how to best utilise the features on your blog, and promote it effectively.
Just follow the link below to find her genius how-to.

And, as always,
Stay productive, stay awesome!
