Happy 1,000th


celebrating 1,000 articles


When I first started this blog, I had no idea how long I would do it. I really had no idea what I was doing and didn’t really know what to expect. I plodded along and learned what blogging was all about and I had some early success. I had tens of thousands of people visiting every month.


I tried to write as much as I could as often as I could. I read differing opinions on how often one should write blog posts. Some people said that you needed to write every day, while others said you could write once per week and do very well. I decided to write about 20 to 25 times per month.


Well, the best laid plans of mice and men …


It took me about 4 years to write the first 500 articles here. It took the next 2 years to write the next 500.


I felt pretty good getting those first 500 articles done. I even stopped and wrote a celebratory article. I had no idea if 500 articles was a lot or not. I see some blogs with 2,000 to 5,000 articles or more than that. I’ve seen some that the blogger got started and quit along the way. Now that I’ve written 1,000 articles I’m probably in the middle of the pack.


It was 2 years ago that I decided that I’d write another article to celebrate getting to 1,000 articles. I’ll probably do this every 500 articles. I want to take a bit of time to reflect on the journey.




In the 6 years that I’ve been blogging, I’ve lost my father to lung cancer, I’ve lost one of my best friends to pancreatic cancer and most recently I lost our oldest son, just 28 years old, to a heart attack.


We just had our first grandchildren. Twin boys and as of this writing they are just 9 days old. I need to get some pictures of them on here … soon!


I’ve did 6 marathons, in there, as well. I coached my youngest son’s basketball team to a championship … that was fun! We came very close to winning 2 other championships as well.


In a lot of ways, it’s been a tough 6 years for me. I’ve done my best to write helpful articles. I probably should’ve written twice as much in that time span, but there were many times when circumstances got the best of me and I really just didn’t feel like writing.


I’ll keep blogging in hopes that someone out there will get inspired enough to take their business to the top level of their company’s pay plan!


The future


I’ve made a decision to take the blog in a slightly different direction in 2018. I’m going to make myself the Guinea Pig and take on some new strategies for lead generation and recruiting and chronicling my journey here. I’m planning on writing about every step I take and all of the results, good or bad, that I get.


I’m looking forward to the next 500 articles. I hope you’ll go along for the ride!
