Halfway There

I’m halfway to my goal of having a mere 10 followers on my other blog site to begin my project. Haven’t heard about it yet you say? Well here’s what I posted a couple of days ago. If you can spare a minute I’d be grateful for your help!

Please take a look at my shorts!

For the first time in the three year history of this blog I’m asking for help from those of you who take a look in either regularly or once in a while. Perhaps you could say I’m giving you all an assignment. You see I have a goal. Actually I have lots of goals but at this exact moment in time I have one specific goal in mind. As part of my ongoing work to become a better helper/coach/mentor/friend/teacher/motivator I’m working on becoming a more refined speaker and story-teller. What do I need to do you ask? Practice! Now there are lots of ways I can practice on my own but I’d love to have some extra incentive to practice so I went back to my old alter-ego blog which I call Jim’z Shorts and resurrected it from the dead so I have a separate forum to do this work.

imagesWhat do I need from you? Readers of course! What I’m asking you to do is to click on this
link to Jim’z Shorts, read over the updated About page and then click the Subscribe to this Blog button. I bet it wont take you more than ten seconds. My initial goal is on what I hope to be the easily attainable side. I’m just looking for 10 followers. When I get to 10 followers I’ll post my first “story” within 24 hours. I’ve already got it written in my head I just need some extra motivation to take some action. Then later if you are feeling over the top helpful on any particular day and you like what you are reading maybe you could suggest it to a friend who might like to play along.

Hope to see you on the other side of my blogging dashboard soon. How does right now sound?


About Jim Herbert

I've been wanting to write my whole life. By age 45 it had amounted to nothing more than a storage locker of half full journals and a lot of unfulfilled dreams. Then Paris in the fall of 2011 happened. It was the catalyst I needed to consistently blog. At first I had a hard time hitting the publish button, but now two blog sites and over 300 posts later I'm hitting my stride. I'm also a budding speech writer. I've recently been heavily involved in the Chicago Storytelling scene and have also won the Chicago Toastmasters Area 66 International Speech Contest. Check out our website at www.emergingintojoy.com for more details about the amazing things that are happening in my life. A book or two are nearing completion. With another Paris trip on tap for Easter of 2015 I can only imagine that there are Infinite Possibilities on the horizon!!!
