I started this blog for one reason: I needed a spot to post a response to the parent of a newly diagnosed ADHD child. I’d batted around the idea of an ADHD blog but I had a million other things to do, and never got past the first ten.
That was less than a month ago.
What happened next astounded even me. I didn’t try to advertise or push the site to anyone except a few friends. A couple of days later, I left a response on Additude Magazine and didn’t think much of it, until I checked the stats.
In the first week and a half (what was left of January) I had received over 300 individual and distinct users to the site.
Okay, maybe It was a fluke.
This Month: 750 individual and distinct users. Again, with no real push because I’ve been playing with what I want this thing to do, and become.
Obviously, I’ve struck a chord, and wasn’t even trying. Personally, I believe it’s a testimony to my thinking: That people – as a whole – are frightened by different. And if there is anything in this world that is different, it’s an ADHD-er that’s full of purpose and unafraid of running face first into a wall. The problem is, most ADHD-ers flounder around, feel beat down and if they do get to that place of purpose, it’s because of their own grit and determination.
But, I believe there’s an army of innovators, of job creators, of new creatives that if they didn’t have to get there alone, could set their homes, their families, their work, this country, and the world on fire.
Will you help me release them?
I’m in the process of moving this blog to My ADHD Brain
