This month, I’m participating in the “31 days to build a better blog at yeah write weekly writing challenge.” I’m sure you’ll appreciate it when I refer to it as #31dbbb from this point forward.
The Day One assignment is to write an elevator pitch for my blog. Here’s my draft:
“That sinking feeling”: you know the one I’m talking about, right?
It’s that feeling that makes you want to give up, to believe those negative voices in your head. It’s the feeling that parents get when they are told that their child has autism.
“that cynking feeling”: where I tell stories to remind myself that the glass is half full. It’s the place where I spread the word of autism acceptance. This is where I don’t give up, where I ignore those voices in my head.
“that cynking feeling”: showing my love for my autistic son, one post at a time.
Before composing this, I took some time to edit the “About” page of my blog. It had more than the 150-word limit imposed for this assignment, but it might give insight into the origins of this blog.
Even though I get a sinking feeling in my stomach writing this, I am seeking feedback on my pitch. I can’t build a better blog if I don’t ask for help. And then accept it.
