Getting an interview proposal ready for MyBlogU this morning, I was a bit shocked to see that my personal website (this one) doesn’t rank too high in the MyBlogU system.
What an eye-opener!
How in the world can others trust me to write for their websites if my own site is weak?
I know — “The plumber’s pipes are always leaking,” and “The cobbler’s kids are in need of shoes.”
I devote hours and hours to working for others… but seldom “find time” to write for myself.
So here’s my plan
One page I have been adding content to is my list of quotes and aphorisms. Josh Parkinson helped rekindle my love for “encapsulations of wisdom.” Now, I’m not claiming to be wise — but I want to be wise. I am a “philosopher’ at heart… a “lover of wisdom.”
Rather than to keep adding my realizations to the quotes and aphorisms page, though, I’m going to try setting them down as mini blog posts. I don’t know if it will help my klout with Moz and Google or not, but it will give me pleasure to see something tangible going on there — and my hope is that it can spur you on to realizations (and actions) of your own.
Here’s my aphorism for the day. I’m pretty sure I’ve not lived up to it yet… but I want to.
Approach every task as if it is the one job others will use to judge your abilities (for it is).
