Over the past 5-6 days, I posted, un-posted, reposted and so on. This is the first time I have ever put together a blog and I have to say I have no idea how this all came together. I get very enthusiastic when I am trying a new project. It's very important that I keep these things in mind; 1) Everything posted on the net stays forever, 2) Who is my target audience, 3) What is my purpose in having this? 4) Am I making this all about me and losing what outcome I am trying to bring forth? 5) Did I get caught up in the excitement of something new and allow that to cloud my judgement? 6) Am I getting addicted to the #'s of visitors growing hundreds everyday?
I do have to say that I could say yes to almost all of these. Sometimes I have to take a step back and assess my actions. I have to bring myself back down to earth and remember I am not the one in charge. EGO= Etching G-d Out! Ego's have destroyed many. I ask G-d to guide me in this journey and help me make the right decisions and allow me to be a vessel for his work. Last thing to keep in mind is that I am not perfect and that's ok. We learn by making mistakes. It makes us stronger. Thank you all for your patience. I have to keep in mind that this is for my visitors and not for me. I hope you enjoy and lower some of your expectations. Remember, I am not mr. techy and am just figuring this out. Thanks!
