Recently I heard Alex Sheen, the founder of “Because I Said I Would” speak about his program to make the world a better place. Well, I took that to heart and one suggestion is that we should write our promise on a card, take a photo of it, and post it to a social media site. So, here is my promise: I will post here at least once a month.
I often have ideas flash into my mind concerning things about which to post on DevonTexs.com and I write them down, enter them into my phone’s notepad, write them on a placemat, napkin, whatever. But all too often, I don’t execute on my good intentions. I have, for example, about 60 draft articles in this site! I put links in about anything I find in which I think my readers may interested. I have a plethora of emails to remind me of article ideas or things I just wanted to pass along to you. Now I need to follow through on those intentions.
So “Because I said I would”, I promise to post at least once a month on this blog. I’ve apologized in the past for not posting and I always have a good reason why I didn’t post something. But, I offer no apologies, just a promise. My life won’t interfere anymore for the few minutes it takes to post about my life on dialysis. That is primarily because so many people around the world find comfort, information, relief, etc on this site.
Frankly, I am shocked at the number of people from many countries around the world who come to this site. In just two weeks of April, 2016 alone, people from 40 countries read my postings! I’m blown away by that. The US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, I could expect but China, Malaysia, Kuwait, UAE, Zimbabwe? Wow!
Thank you, one and all. My goal of informing the dialysis community is in sight. So, I commit to posting here at least once a month and more often. How’s that? Thank you to Alex Sheen, too for the inspirational motivation. Watch the video on his website and see if you can join us in making the world a better place. For me, that means making dialysis easier and better.
