Hello and welcome...
You’re here because you know me. Well I shouldn’t say you know me but you know of me and you got this link from my page. I appreciate you taking the time to visit this blog and reading the very first post on it.
Let me give you a little info about me and then I’ll touch on my vision for this blog. I am a simple man who battles some inner demons. Writing helps me cope with those demons and that’s why I am here. Instead of writing in my journal I have decided to take to the World Wide Web. This gives me the chance to share my thoughts and hopefully help others in the process. I am not a good writer by any means but that is not the point. I write because it helps me. It gets me to the next day and it keeps me from completely giving up. I will be sharing my thoughts, my stories, and my visions. And along the way I might even throw some other random things on here.
That was a little about me, you will learn more about me in my blog posts at a later time. My vision for this blog... well this is where it gets interesting (well at least to me).. I want this to be a place for multiple writers to be able to go to express any and all thoughts. I want this to be a place for writers to come and tell their stories. I want this to be a place where writers can go to try and help people with their inner demons. And lastly I want this to be a place where people can go for help... and support.
I battle severe depression and anxiety, and millions of other people do as well. I am not alone and you are not alone. I wish I knew of a place I could go to read how other people get through it all and how they survive everyday. I’m sure it exists but I don’t know where. If I can help one person with my thoughts, stories, and visions that’s all that matters to me. One person is all that matters to me. You matter to me. And I hope my words can help.
I am looking for writers and bloggers to join the “Speaking our Mind” team. I want multiple people writing posts every week. A constant flow of thoughts, ideas, stories, and visions being posted on this blog. I want 100s and 1000s of people to turn to us for help and advice. I want to be there for other people. I want to help others. You don’t need to be an outstanding writer to join the team, you just need to have the will to help others and share real stories & visions. That’s all you need to be able to do.
Please read my first “real” blog post for an idea of what I am looking for and what the “Speaking our Mind” team is looking for. If you would like to apply to become a writer/blogger for us please contact me on my cell phone (612-219-3056) or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Spots are extremely limited as I am looking for 3 to 5 people right now, so let me know if you are interested as soon as possible.
Thank you all for the support. I hope I can help others as much as they have helped me.
I’ll see you soon,
