9 Random People

Yesterday I wrote my first blog about how I started blogging.  How original.  Today I will write what I have learned about blogging in the last 24 hours.  Again very original.

I have taken about 4 video tutorials on blogging and read probably 15 different Blogs about how to do blogs.  Time well spent?  Well ……….. when I looked at my stats for the day yesterday, I noticed that 11 people had found my blog and 3 visited the about the author page!

I know one of these people was my mother and another was a new friend I met yesterday at the climbing gym.  That leaves 9 mystery people that somehow managed to surf across my words.  With a response like that, how can I deny that all this time has been worth the investment?

With all this momentum building behind me, I think it is time to start writing about what really interests me.  Hopefully some of what fires me up, will speak to the 9 random people a day who I expect to continue getting.  Maybe together we will discover the meaning of life, how to fix the world by fixing eduction, how “what you are like” is just as important as “what you know” and “what you can do”.  Maybe we will learn about the nature of success, the nature of our selves, and maybe even share a laugh or two.

So to my mother, my new climbing friend, and my 9 faceless yet avid readers;  Thank you for making day one such a smashing success!  To the new friends about to join, welcome to the adventure!

    Not Random, at least not this time, posting on facebook will get you some friendly hits. All about getting the link to your blog out there. The more links you have across different other websites the more likely someone will find your blog through google or what not. It’s a science really, there’s people out there that do this for a living.

    But, glad to see you have a blog, and I’m sure many of us will follow your words, and anticipate the next post.

    Good Luck

    In response to the kid lies part one… I was once watching an Indian movie (shocking, I know) and the mother told her daughter… “Have dreams my child, have many dreams…just don’t bet on any of them actually coming true” as I was watching this I remember thinking “How absurd! How can a mother actually tell her child something like this?!” But I’m guessing thats because i’ve been brainwashed into thinking the opposite.
    Its kind of funny because in that culture they aren’t brought up thinking like that, its more just about doing what you are told to do and not what you want to do (for the most part)

    • Algae, you bring up such an interesting point! Culture plays a big role in the lies we tell children and I am sure every culture tells its children different versions of similar lies. Living in Dubai you have been exposed to a wide variety of cultures and therefore probably have a more balanced perspective. Plus your whole life is a Bollywood movie so you know all about dreams!
