It has been quite a while since I posted my last blog post, but that is about to change. Due to my over­com­ing so many chal­lenges in my life, I have some­how missed an impor­tant les­son which is now being dri­ven home.

That les­son is you can’t have bal­ance and be able to keep giv­ing to oth­ers if you do not also ask for help and accept help FROM oth­ers. You have to peri­od­i­cally fill the cup so you can empty it again. This is an extremely hard les­son for me, but I will learn it and live it so I can then teach it to others.

As you share this jour­ney with me I will be hon­est and real with you. I am not here to fake it til I make it but to help you learn how to change your life in so many ways. The best way I can do that is to be hon­est and real and to share what I have learned in my jour­ney with you so you can learn from it.

I want to build mean­ing­ful rela­tion­ships with you and help you with your jour­ney. Even the most knowl­edge­able and wise peo­ple have some­thing to learn. We are all a work in progress on our vary­ing paths.

I men­tioned that the sad state of con­tent here will change and let me explain why. I am tak­ing up two chal­lenges that were offered to me. As I work on these chal­lenges I will share my expe­ri­ences with you.

The first one was sug­gest by Cal­iban Dark­lock to cre­ate 60 pieces of con­tent based on con­tent already out there. The first piece for the day must be from a totally new source each day. So for exam­ple, if you write a post about a spe­cific quote, or a cer­tain pic­ture, you have to know the orig­i­nal source where it came from.

The sec­ond piece of con­tent has to be some­thing new from a source you have already used. This means for the first day both pieces of con­tent will be from the same par­ent source. At the end of a month, you should have 60 pieces of content.

The other chal­lenge was to come up with a short video each day for a total of 30 in a month. It was sug­gested by Matt Roe. These would be short videos posted on YouTube and embed­ded in my blog posts.

At this time, I do not have a work­ing web­cam or cam­corder or even a flip cam. So I will be doing voice overs and slides and present infor­ma­tion that is rel­e­vant to my blog posts. This will be an adven­ture for me to try to meet both chal­lenges and also put together the project I have already lined up.

Feel free to com­ment about this and let me know if you decide to try one or both of these chal­lenges as well.
