Hi, I’m Sterling, and this is my blogging manifesto.
I’m a reader and writer.
So this blog is about practicing my writing in public.
And sharing smart ideas I find in books.
The idea is that with enough practice I might actually get better at writing and sharing.
And that over time, as I improve and more people notice, I might build a successful platform.
Maybe a book deal comes, advertising revenue starts to catch on, or I eventually get a huge corporate sponsor.
Maybe all three.
This would all be fantastic.
But none of this is what drives me.
What drives me is that in addition to the memories, I want to leave something behind.
I want my children to be able to point to something lasting and say:
“My dad built that.”
Maybe my grandchildren too.
I want to leave a positive and encouraging mark on the world through both my actions and my writing.
I want to bear fruit with patience.
This website is about legacy.
I hope you will join me for some of the ride.
