This page represents my thoughts on my first year (Aug 2009-10) blogging. Hope you enjoy digging into the archives.
What writing fear did I have to overcome?
Hitting publish for the first time. The first post was very personal. I was exposing myself to the world in a very open way. Professionally, I have coached people who wanted to find safety and comfort in being their true self in the world. Publishing this blog is the way I keep living this truth for myself. 50+ published posts later, I still get butterflies hitting the publish button.
What was my first post?
“Unwanted Behaviors” was published on August 12, 2009. This post is a raw look at what I discovered as I was exploring my limiting behavior. I’m proud of this post. The feedback I received from friends and family encouraged me to continue to write.
I enjoyed writing this post the most
“You will remember today forever” was published on January 27, 2010. This post is a statement on our cultural preferences. Steve Jobs announced the iPad and President Obama gave his State of the Union address. Give it a read and you will see why it was fun for me to write.
Which post generated the most conversation?
“Being a Dad changed my life forever” was published on July 9, 2010. This is primarily a self-exploration post about my transition into fatherhood. Discussion did not make it to the blog comments, but it was robust on FB and in-person. If you are a parent, you will surely enjoy it.
I wish more people had read this post.
“The open road awaits…put the peddle to the metal” was published on March 10, 2010. I think I told a good story and enjoyed writing this post. As I re-read it today, I still like it. Give it a read and let me know what you think.
Which post has generated the most traffic?
“We are all Super Heroes” was published on October 7, 2009. I was pleasantly surprised by this post being number 1 when I looked up the stats. Currently, this post is edging out two more recent posts for the number 1 spot. You are the superhero the world needs. Not even kryptonite can stop you. You are invincible. Time to soar. Read this entry and help keep this post number 1.
My Favorite post I’ve done on someone else’s blog
“Fascinate Book Review“ was published in March, 2010. I applied Sally Hoghead’s marketing theories to Coaching. Did I hit the spot?
My favorite guest post on WeVivify
“More than Enough” was published on October 26, 2009. Angela Stauder wrote a raw emotional from the heart post that solicited a similar response from the people who read it. Angela delivered the goods. I am always interested in sharing your posts with my readers. Do you think you are up to writing a guest post?
There you have it. I am proud of my first year blogging. I hope this page brings us closer together.
