this post from March 2006 where I wished a "Happy Birthday to my Blog" (yes, this from a guy who threw birthday parties for my dog when I was a kid!).
March 2005 I began this online effort. Seven years later I am still here. Nobody read this blog back then. Now I have some regular subscribers and readers, and many more occasional visitors. Some find me via search engines. Others come here from a social media link they run across.
Writing this blog has been therapeutic. It has sparked business opportunities. I have met people online which has lead to in-person connections. Most of all, it has been an ongoing constant part of my evolution as a writer, speaker, consultant, and person.
I have shared victories and failures with anyone who is interested. I am reminded by readers when I make mistakes or fall short of expectations. I have tried to be honest and helpful all the time. The real one who learns from my blogging efforts is me. I have discovered my own short-comings and have worked toward being better.
Being human is a journey. Too many people forget this and form opinions of others from a limited view point and hold on to their judgments. I am not the same as I was seven years ago, and this realization has helped me accept others for their own flaws. Hopefully I have expanded my soul, and this blog has helped me along the way. There is still a long way to go (I hope), and for those who are here with me..... THANK YOU.
I love to see others succeed, and try to be a resource for others. Most often this is just by sharing and brainstorming.... as I believe we achieve more when be have friends than when we have foes. If you find yourself reading these words, please reach out to me if I can be of assistance.
Have A Great Day.
