One Page, One Message, Too Many Words

As I sit here and stare at the computer screen, several thoughts are running through my mind:

  • I’ve made a commitment to create “one page” of content every day, except for Saturdays. According to my source of inspiration, (HINT: click on the link!), that’s about 300 words per day. Worked out pretty well for the Pringles guy; it just might work for me (and you).
  • That “one page” is supposed to be content for my business blog.
  • I know what I want to write about on that blog but don’t feel like writing there.
  • I feel like writing here but have no idea what to write about.
  • I’m going to use this post to meet my “one page” requirement today, even though I violated my own standards.
  • I’m weird and have no idea why anybody would possibly read this. Could you do me a favor and leave a comment to let me know why you’re reading?
  • I’m already halfway to my “one page / 300 words” quota.

Anyway, I now remember why I thought it was crucially important to write on this blog today:

  • I wanted to let you know about my “one page” goal and hopefully encourage you to do the same.
    • Don’t have a blog? Want one? Leave a comment with a good email (I won’t approve it) and I’ll contact you about a new hosting service I’m starting. I’ll give you a blog, lots of security, and will be here when you need help.
  • And that’s it.

I’ve crazily committed to the whole “one page” thing because my irrational mind has convinced me that it’s going to work. Whether it does or not remains to be seen. The rational part of my mind says to withhold judgment but the irrational part of it has already made up its mind.

That same irrational part almost bought a new Harley Davidson a couple of weeks ago. The rational part refused to sign the loan paperwork.

Sometimes being rational sucks. Sometimes being irrational sucks for 60 months at 7.99% interest.

But this time, the rational part has decided to let the irrational part have a bit more leash than usual. We’ll see what happens.

And that makes 388 words. Today’s goal accomplished. Or not accomplished since I didn’t write them on the correct site. Blah.

P.S. — Please don’t go back and count the words…
