This blog’s current follower goal and your role in that, there’s more to it than just subscribing

Audio recording of the post, ‘This blog’s current follower goal and your role in that, there’s more to it than just subscribing’

It should be fairly clear at this point that 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

Be Great.

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

Be Great.

If you believe in pursuing that message and you haven’t made the mental commitment yet, scroll to the bottom of the page and hit the follow button or drop your email in the subscribe. And let’s continue together on our journey to… you guessed it, Be Great.

Round up of my 12 day writing streak

I want to brag just a little bit, just humor me.

I have never posted this many times in a row for my blog before and I feel a lot of pride at this moment for overcoming the difficulties of travelling to new places and still writing for my audience. It is my earnest desire to continue writing daily for this blog, and I can’t wait to see where it takes us.

And as such, I would hope that any of the following titles might interest you.

As for me, I am going to the beach today.

Hasta luego, mi amigos!

A few lessons that I have learned living my dream of ‘1 Awesome Month in Mexico with My Family’

Audio Recording of ‘A few lessons that I have learned living my dream of ‘1 Awesome Month in Mexico with My Family”

Back in November of last year, a dream arose out of me to visit Mexico with my family for a month. I can say that we have successfully lived this dream as we are currently living this dream at the moment. And with one week left of this adventure, I am reflecting on the lessons I have learned:

  1. Everything follows perspective
  2. Dreams are not all that hard to fulfill
  3. Nightmares almost never happen
  4. Relish the struggle to fullfill you dreams
  5. Savor your dreams before they are over
  6. Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you
  7. Share in other’s stories, and share your own with them
  8. Encourage and challenge others to reach for their dreams
  9. Remember, there is always more walking to be had
  10. Live like the locals do, and not like the tourists
  11. Plan on revisiting sooner rather than later
  12. Pack a couple different size rubber bands, they’re crazy useful in a pinch

It is no secret to me that the readers of this blog come from all over the world. Of you that are visiting for the first time, welcome.  It is my hope that you find the words that bring you closer to your ideal health, wealth and happiness. And for those of whom are revisiting this blog, welcome back.

In the coming weeks and months ahead, this blog will further the vision and dreams that I have of my self and the readers of this blog. There are more dreams to pursue, nightmares to squash, and stories to share. As such I must say thank you for being my reader, it is an honor and  pleasure to to tell my story.

Even so, I hope you’ll be so courageous to share your story too with the readers of this blog. You never know. Maybe it is  your words that just might help someone escape the FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) that is holding them back from living their dreams. Who knows, but the only way to find out is to do it.
