It should be fairly clear at this point that alixandercourt.com is a fledgling podcast/blog with aspirations. And right now my goal is to hit 100 followers by the end of the year.
As of right now this blog has 84 wordpress followers and 2 email followers. I have no idea if people get more value from being a wordpress follower or an email subscriber. I guess what matters is that people are getting the message.
Discussing followers and stats begs the question: why does this blog want followers? And why should you follow this blog?
Well, those are some great questions to explore and so let’s get into it.
Why this blog wants followers
Jokingly, the first answer that came to mind is that the author is an egotistical, self-centered human being who measures success by an arbitrary metric…
But for real, though. Why this blog wants others to follow is because I stongly believe in the message it aims to share, that the core message is worth pursuing, and that those who follow this blog will benefit from it.
What is the core message of this blog
Simple as that.
For me, this stands as a personal ensign, a banner or standard, for me to aspire to.
For you, this stands as a challenge for you to do the same.
And as I pursue what it means to Be Great in my own life, a part of that is to share a great meassge with others. This blog, and my commitment to furthering its message, stands as my earnest desire to help you find the encouragement, tools, and knowledge you need to Be Great in your own way.
Why you should follow this blog
Well, as I said, I am earnestly pursuing what it means to Be Great and this blog wants you to join in on that journey. The way I am pursuing that core message is by reading what others have written before, implementing their ideas into my own life, and sharing the results here on this blog. If that resonates with you and you see that as the right way to self-growth and personal mastery (learn, do, share), then you should join in the journey by following the blog.
As such, I believe that as we are striving upwards, towards what it means to Be Great, each of us will benefit from seeing how we pursue how to Be Great. Each of us has our own life, with its own set of circumstances, and what I have discovered is that when you share how you overcome, when you share what you have achieved and when you stay committed, the results are incredible.
Instead of relegating all of my personal accomplishments as a tour-de-force of why you should follow this blog, which might be fun another day, I want to end this here with an invitation
