If this is your first visit time or you are a frequent visitor of Second Chance to Live let me say that I am happy to have you around my table. You are always welcome and your presence matters to me.
As you may know, I created Second Chance to Live on February 6, 2007, in response to the encouragement of friends. My friends encouraged me to share from my experience, strength and hope. With their encouragement, I started to write and publish articles from The Power of Identification .
HOW I DESIGN ARTICLES FOR SECOND CHANCE TO LIVE
Consequently, the format that I use in my articles is to first share a personal experience that I encountered as an individual living with a brain injury, an invisible disability and adversity. In the second part of my article I share how I addressed and handled the experience. In the final part of the article I share strategies that have worked for me. My goal is to share encouragement, motivation, empowerment and hope with my readers.
A GUIDE TO READING ARTICLES FROM SECOND CHANCE TO LIVE
Some of my early articles were long and as a result I made the decision to divide the articles into parts. By breaking the articles into parts, I have found that reading the entire article is more manageable. Please note that each part of the article contains information that gives clarity to the preceding and then the continuing parts of the article. That is why I encourage my readers to read each part of the article.
Because many of my articles are divided up into parts, I created links to the various parts of the article (s) to aid in accessing each part of the article. By creating links, I created convenience and accessibility to the continuity of the complete article. The links to each part of the article are placed at the bottom and also at the top of each part of the article, with the encouragement, “Please read the next or previous parts of the article”.
A link to each Part of the article is usually in bold print with a purple or blue color. The link allows the reader to have easy access to each Part of the article, by left clicking one time on the bold purple or blue link. By clicking on the link you will be taken to the desired part of the article. In some of my articles I also include links to other articles that I have previously written for Second Chance to Live.
Many times I will say, “please read my article” and then cite the article by placing the title in Bold print with a blue or purple color font link. By clicking on the article title or link to the article, you will be taken to that article. I include links to these articles to give further insight into the current article. Once you have finished reading the linked article, simply use your back < sign at the left upper corner of your computer screen.
By clicking on the back < arrow, will be taken back to the part of the article that you had been reading.
HOW TO USE TABS ON SECOND CHANCE TO LIVE
I have also created tabs that can be seen at the top my home page above Second Chance to Live. These are named: About Page, Tools, Article Categories, e Books, Organizations and Service. By pointing your cursor (mouse) over those tabs, a list of menu items will appear under those tabs. By clicking on each menu item, under the tab; another page will open with specific information related to the the title of the menu item.
Once you read the information in the menu item, another menu item can be selected and read by completing the same process. If you have any difficulty reading or accessing each menu item, please let me know and I will help you. As questions arise, please send those questions to me. All questions are good questions and welcomed.
I look forward to being of service to you.
Have a pleasant day.
