Halloween, Happy October

We have been working hard all year. Now that fall is here in full, we are embracing Halloween. Happy Halloween to you and yours.

To date we have closed 75 projects for 2021 and we have a plan to work through the winter getting ready for a few trade shows in the spring 2022.

Today we are dodging rain drops and catching up on our social media accounts.

This week we are finishing up a Gutter Job and continuing our service work for our commercial customers. Dick is looking forward to his first posts on this blog and other social media engagements. Look forward to those posts in the future.

Introduce Yourself (Dick)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

I am Adam,

I started in the construction and carpentry field when I was eight years old traveling east Tennessee with my father and two brothers. After 30 years in the trades had taken me from coast to coast, my family and I landed in New Hampshire 6 years ago. Now I have incorporated Fixed llc with my short time friend Dick.

Why do this?

  • Because we work to support our families
  • Because because we want to focus on providing the best possible quality to our customers.
