The Spirit of Z2H

There is no doubt. My blog has been a big fat “zero” in recent years. And I am very grateful that my good friend Harvey convinced me to join him in the Zero to Hero mission. Or “Z2H” as he calls it. (As a former Navy guy… ya’ know I love acronymns.)

But frankly, I don’t think I’ve achieved “Hero” status with my blog. Probably just “Ordinary” status. (See what I did there? I tied it into my blog’s theme.)

Still, I think that I’ve been following the spirit of the assignments. And I am excited about the future of my blog.

You see, I have been struggling to find time and energy to write, especially after spending the entire work day fighting a computer. Yet, I am optimistic that this blog is heading in the right direction. I’ve even started to reach out to some ordinary folks who are doing amazing things. Can’t wait to blog about them.

Plus, it’s been nice to read, comment on, and interact with other bloggers. (Wish I had more time to do more of this.)

For example, there are blogs like Deliberating Dave and Wandering Voiceless. (Excellent names, right?) There’s also my mom’s blog: Souls Under Construction.

That reminds me… I’ve got to catch up on some reading and commenting.

With January 2014 rapidly coming to a close, I don’t know how strictly I will be following the handful of upcoming Z2H assignments, but I’m certainly grateful for the help along the way.

Perhaps I should change the challenge name, at least for me, to Zero to Ordinary.

Hey Harvey… how does “Z2O” sound to you?

  1. It’s always a nice surprise to open your reader and see your name highlighted in a friend’s blog! I think Z2O (as long as that’s an “O” for OrdinaryCitizen and not a “0” as in zero) is great. Also, I have enjoyed getting to read and comment more in this challenge. And yes, Wandering Voiceless is a great blog! I’ll have to check out the Dave one. Keep it up however you can. Coincidentally, I think that was one of Pfizer’s failed marketing campaigns for Viagra.

  2. Hey, I’m glad you like the name of my blog at least. I like the theme of your post. Some days you have three topics you would like to write about and can’t find the time to flesh out even one of them. On other days, if you are like me, you have time to write and just can’t seem to get the thoughts to flow. From my vast experience (intended dry humor/sarcasm here) I have to say that the more you just sit down and do it, the more easy it becomes.
    Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed it.

    I believe that we desperately need to hear the stories of Ordinary Citizens who make a difference in our lives, our communities and our world.

    Why not be Ordinary?

    Why not make a difference?

    Why not be Ordinary AND make a difference?
