Let Me Introduce You To Richardo

Just dropping in and saying, how funny I get introduce by friends.  Well friends who actually knows me, that I am a man of multiple skills.  I guess my blog followers, well I call you guys friends also, if you stick around to like a post or say hello now and then knows me for the stay qualities.  It always gets me and cracks me up being introduced to others, my friends or family would be like, oh yea, this is Richardo he does EVERYTHING, then goes back to the conversation.  The person usually gets thrown off a bit and goes, well what do you mean by everything?  In which the disgust of having to repeat everything, they say it one more time, then tell me to explain what I do, in which I would be specific, then they go, umm oh wow, sounds like everything, do you have a business card?

Those encounters are very funny to me.  So crazy.  I remember a few years back when I was so proud of myself and had a million and one business card to give, and no one would ask.  Now I don’t even bring much around so I can tell people I don’t have one, so they can try to remember me by will to ever work with me.  I know it’s kind of counter productive for I would want to get more business and so on being a business man, but when you kind of do everything, then everyone wants to suck you dry, then believe since they met you, that they know you, so they won’t want to pay me, then I guess I am doing exactly what I should be doing.

What do you think?  Have this ever happened to you?

Thanks for reading
Richardo Wilson

I really don’t know how to say it, but I am very appreciative for all the support and followers aka “blog ninjas” that came by my blog in the past two weeks.  I am happy to see others passionate writers and I have also visited many blogs to meet new friends.  It’s quite simply a community and great people here on WordPress, and what you put in is what you get.  I have some really great dynamic posts coming up soon, via I want them to be strictly awesome, for it will be more helpful and share worthy than my regular personal or life posts.

I have seen some new subscribers, and just want to welcome all the ladies, BIG HUG, and if you are a guy a manly handshake, (I don’t think we should be hugging lol) but if you are up for a hug, what the hell.

I have been busy as of late, working 3 jobs and creating a media network, so if you see me pass by your blog, trust me I am a ninja.  I stealthy got there and read, liked, even left some comments.  I am trying to reach everyone I can, and see and read all the interesting things that’s going on, but it’s super hard.  But I go hard, so I should be fine.  I collecting some crazy super awesome photos, so be ready for those coming soon.

Anyways I am rambling.  I just want to say thanks you to all my new friends and also for subscribing to my blog, watch out and check your email, twitter or facebook, for I might be requesting to do an interview with you for my weekly Subscriber Interview series, every friday (well not every, but I try though) in which I interview one of my subscribers and introduce them to the world on my blog.

PS: If you are a new follower, just know I post a post ONCE every day as the PROJECT 365 challenge I have going on with PostADay2012.  So your email might get filled up, but don’t you worry, I post awesome cool easy to read stuff.  But I try my best to stick to only one post, but on occasions I might do 2 or so.  Very rarely though.

Happy Blogging

Thanks for reading, liking, and commenting.
