Jonathan's Blogging Journey

I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

Hi to all,


Thanks so much for your previous comments, and for everyone who looked at my site. I’m slowly working on the revisions, and will let you all know when they are complete. I’m also posting this same post in a few different places on 48 Days, so you might see it again! I am still working at my JOB full time, so my time resources are somewhat limited, apologies as to not responding or being involved as much as I really need to be. I am working on two websites for coaching (and yes Ken, speaking)! The first is The Exceptional American, which is focused on Life Coaching, and the second is The Leader Forge, which will obviously be focused on Leadership. My passion is leadership, though I see life coaching as a solid secondary focus, as not everyone can be nor wants to be a leader specifically, but everyone can and should be working on improving their life situation. I have been slow working on things, but am now laser beam focused on my sites, my speech, and my training formats, as I am planning my transition to full time coaching and speaking by mid-January. So, any comments, critiques, encouragement and questions are and will be appreciated. I have gained much from this community and really appreciate what you all are doing on here. Thanks much!

Hey Jason,

3 ideas for you

1. Have you tried the mail chimp wordpress plugin
2. When you create a form in mail chimp it also gives you a link. You can use the link in different ways to get people to sign up
3. Outsource it. Post a job on script lance someone will do it for $5-10 and it will save you the headache

Hey guys, I've been a member of this group for a while, but this is my first time jumping in because, frankly, I've been having my daughter help me set up my recently launched blog - www.buzzmarketeer.com

The reason for posting is that my newsletter's Subscribe button has been a pain in the bee-hind. She has not been able to resolve it, even after copying and pasting the same code she uses on her blog - www.lexgarey.com. It's been two weeks and I feel helpless cuz I'm a dummpkopf about this stuff (that will change soon). She thinks it's a Mailchimp issue, not a Wordpress issue. Any help would be much appreciated.

Three Questions Lead to mossmatters Blog

From a novice:

Why a blog called mossmatters.wordpress.com? Mostly because I don’t know what else to call it yet!  I do know why it’s being birthed, though:

Speak up  for those who have no voice, for the justice of all who are destitute. Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the oppressed and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9).

I’m a recent graduate of Dan Miller’s Writing Conference at The Sanctuary, and it seems blogging is one of those musts for writers–at least in this century! Fortunately, the conference provided the impetus for what has been on my mind for quite some time. So, thanks Dan and friends, for the nudge forward into blogging.

A long day of active listening, meeting new like-minded friends, and hearing their stories and dreams brought an epiphany for me. I shared it with Dan early Friday morning and shortly thereafter found myself being called on to tell the group! There are no lost moments for “noting a blog” in this circle of friends! Anyway, I related that I had forgotten my message until the epiphany. Life happens, as they say, and often robs our focus. Now, I remember the why behind the what I wanted to write in the first place.

During the most difficult time of my life, I kept asking myself, Do I matter? Why am I here? Does anybody care? During agony upon agony, those deep-seated and plaguing questions dumped me into the Source of solutions–if any existed. So, I set my mind like flint, delved into every red-letter conversation between Jesus and every woman He actually talked with and to. I desperately needed to know His opinion. I desperately needed to know what He had to say to other desperate women around Him. Wow, was I ever shocked, amazed, and thrilled to reread stories from a fresh perspective and learn the value of red-letter talking!

That’s when I began putting together the message with the passion that was driving me. That’s when I searched for the key to relate His stories and their stories and my story and others’ stories. That’s when He led me to a familiar passage that I saw for the first time–again! I learned wisdom from another mother to her son, King Lemuel, when she urged him to Speak up  for those who have no voice, for the justice of all who are destitute. Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the oppressed and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9). Then, I knew what I absolutely had to do: write the message from the passion. Others need to be freed up, too. Others need to know that they matter, why they are here, and that somebody cares. Others, I think, can profit from those red-letter conversations and lessons.

Applying the speak-up key to those red-letters brought me full circle to Do I matter? Why am I here? Does anybody care? The speak-up key gave the purpose and the format for what became the message in my travels to Kenya, Africa to lead Teacher-Training Workshops and to stateside classes, too. I discovered that I’m not a lone wrestler with those questions. I learned others long to be freed up, too. I learned that red-letter conversations have the power of insight, truth, and freedom. I learned that Jesus still speaks through magnificent women, bedraggled women, demon-possessed women, honored women, puzzled women, seriously ill women, argumentative women–well, most any type of woman, not to mention the men!

And now I share that message with whoever needs it. Have you ever been one of those? Are you now?

Stay tuned: let’s put a few red-letter conversations into blog format!
