This is my first post. In fact, it’s not a post. This is from me to you, Dave.
What Is This
This is our chance to become more than we currently are. This is our shot to work together to make some money. This is our chance to push each other and encourage each other. WE are going to write a blog together. A blog about something we know about. Money and Friendship. Don’t worry about the details yet. Think of a topic about friends, or money, or life, and start writing. I know we have it in us to do something great. This is me pushing us over the edge. Let’s dive in…together.
What I’m Not Going to Do. You Shouldn’t Either
I’m not going to check our sites stats. I’m not going to change the layout. I’m not going to comment on other blogs. I’m not going to edit categories, or rss feeds. I’m not going to hunt down pictures. I’m not going to write our about page. These are things that matter, but only after we can show each other that we can write, and write often. These are the things I normally get caught up with. Instead of writing I fiddle. By the time I’m done fiddling, I’m out of steam. Honestly, I feel these things are all distractions. People will read a lousy looking blog. People will read posts without pictures. Do you know what they
won’t can’t do? Read a blog with 4 posts. They need more, they want more. I’m not going to share anything with anyone. Not yet. I’m not going to post to facebook, or email, or talk to C about it. These are things I do to pretend I’m actively doing something. I want more than cheap recognition and the support of people who would support us under any circumstances. I’m not going to do any of this. Not for one month.
I challenge you and me to write one article per day for an entire month. Just one. Every day. Write about whatever comes to your mind, just write. In one month, on August 1, we should have 62 posts on this site. Do you think we are up to that challenge? Do you believe in us and everything we’ve built over the past 15 years? Do you believe in yourself? Do you believe you can truly make something happen? I believe in me. I believe in you. We are remarkable, it’s time to start acting like it. Write one article, every day. I’m not going to lie, since I started writing this post, I have laid out 3 others. I’m excited.
It’s important to do this. Why? Because we need to start moving toward our goal, every day. We need to start on our journey toward being extraordinary. One day at a time. In the end, maybe it’s not blogging. Maybe we will fail at this, but I want to develop the habit of acting everyday toward a goal, and as always, I want you to come with me. This is our fight. This is us against the world. This is Outisders for life.
I got your back.
