Guilty As Charged… In Self Defence: A Short Story #kdsuspense #amreading

Author, Kim Knight

Just to Get Y’all Ready Here’s A Little Something From Us To you! A Bonus From Volume #1

Guilty As Charged, In Self-Defence.

AUTHOR ONE: SCENE ONE

“Your top is very stripy today.”

Dean announces with a quizzical lift of one brow. He’s practically blocking the doorway into the breakroom. I hate it when he does that. Our firm is the largest on this side of California, and of all the Lawyers that Martin Law could’ve chosen to partner me up with on the most important case imaginable, it had to be Dean.

Dean Pritcher, the handsome, young, successful and entitled douchebag. He doesn’t have much of a filter on the stupid shit he says, and he gets away with it, because his father is one of the most powerful money grabbers known in the law business. Dean has a thing for me – a major one. The annoying flirtatious…

My Daily Observation: 12/1/17

Danny

Bloggers email me asking for help.  They either want to figure out a way to get more people to follow their page or they want more interaction.  I think bloggers who want to grow their page are missing one crucial fact: they fail to build a tribe.

What does this mean and why is it important?  Building a tribe is a concept first introduced to me by Seth Godin.  If you are unfamiliar you can find plenty of great content on YouTube and I recommend you doing so after you finish reading this post.  Building a tribe means you take the time to associate your page with people who believe the same things you believe or care about the things about which you also care.  Basically it’s a way of bringing like minds together.

One of the challenges of building anything successful is to get others to care about what it is that you are doing.  If no one cares then your efforts could flounder which is the case with most bloggers.  My view is you don’t need everybody, you just need the right bodies.  Make sense?

Why is this important?  Many bloggers spend their efforts trying to appeal to the masses and for some there is nothing wrong with this strategy.  But when people simply aren’t engaging I think it is important to ask yourself what it is that you believe.  What is it that you care about?  Are there others who will care?  Are there enough people caring to help you reach your goals (if you have goals)?

You don’t need millions of readers to be successful.  Sometimes a tribe will be small, but effective.  I recommend spending time finding and connecting with people who believe in the same things in which you believe and then building a community of those types of people.  When people care about what you are doing, then and only then, will you find power for your cause.

Simon Sinek references this basic notion in explaining his Golden Ring concept.  People don’t buy, engage, follow, like for any other reason other than they buy-in to what you believe.  They believe the same as you.  And when people believe the same as you they don’t show for you, they show up for themselves.  They engage because they get something out of the relationship that helps them or reinforces their passion for what they believe.  It’s not forced labor, but a situation in which people will give their blood, sweat and tears.

The key is that in the situation I just mentioned, it isn’t about you, but about them.

Why does it seem like life knows exactly what my weakness is and puts me under constant testing?  Do you ever feel this way?

I am not a patient person; I want everything and I want it now.  I like the process of success, but I don’t like having to wait.  And because the universe seems to understand I don’t like to wait around, it is as if I am constantly tested with situations that require the most patience.  I want to yell at the world sometimes.

I wonder how I would be tested if I were a patient man?  Typing that last sentence made me laugh for some reason.

So even though I don’t like to wait around, right now I am being tested to the utmost with a situation that is contingent on other people making things happen for me.  It is out of my control.

I sure hope there is merit in the old saying “good things come to those who wait!”

Yesterday was 3 years since I began this blog and what an incredible ride it has been.  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think this ride would end up how it has ended up.   Blogging is such a huge part of my life now and I cannot imagine waking up in the morning and writing a post or reblogging someone to help spread the love.

When I first began I didn’t realize the personal fulfillment I would receive in return.  I’m sure most bloggers can say the same.  I cannot believe 3 years went by so quickly.

Well, here’s to another 3 years and more!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday.  I’m out sick from work today dealing with the remnants of a cold and sinus headache so I’ll be around to talk.

Behind Closed Doors – B. A. Paris

Books and Stuff

A beautiful wife (Grace), an equally handsome husband (Jack). They are deemed the perfect couple. Well, at least that’s the façade that is presented to the world.Image of book cover: Behind Closed Doors by B A Paris

Jack and Grace become engaged after only a few months of dating. Love at first sight? Well for one of them, I suppose it is, for a minute anyway.

I have to admit that this book grabbed me from the beginning. It’s a domestic thriller, with some very disturbing psychological elements, and a gripping read that will leave your mind wheeling. Although, there are moments that give way to total disbelief within this story. Its relentless action will take you on a terrifying ride with a sociopath, who know no bounds. He goes to great lengths to satisfy his darkest desires.

You won’t be able to put it down until the last page has been turned. You may find yourself shouting at Grace…

My Thanksgiving Day Observation: 11/23/17

Danny

I want to wish everyone in the U.S. a Happy Thanksgiving!  I have been on vacation for the last week and haven’t been posting as much of my original stuff so I thought I’d pop in and say Thank You to all of my blog friends for supporting me and allowing me to be a small part of your life.

As a blogger I understand that no one owes me a view, share or like so when they happen I am grateful.  The last 3 years (November 26) have been amazing and I cannot believe the community we’ve built here on WordPress.  It has added so much to my life and I love the arguments and conversations.  I love the diversity of thought and I appreciate learning about other cultures.

So to all of you I say a huge “THANK YOU!!”  Happy Thanksgiving!
