After a couple of failed attempts at blogging in the past, Michael Hyatt’s new book (Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World) has inspired me to make it happen this time. The blog will be a work in progress. I haven’t even decided on an overall theme.
What I do know are some of the reasons why I am starting a blog.
- Organize my thoughts. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and read several blogs daily. These inputs give me many ideas. I need an output for these thoughts.
- Practice my writing. I have not written anything of any significance since my one year stint in college. Quite honestly, that wasn’t stellar.
- Teach and help others. I believe that the lessons I have learned over my years can be a help to others. As a wise man once said, “A smart person learns from his own mistakes, but a truly wise person learns from other people’s mistakes.”
