SAVE THE DATE: My 1-2-3 Cents Day is coming soon

Some will view it as ego stroking, but I view it as brand building. I decided late last year that 2017 would be the year I take the My 1-2-3 Cents brand to new heights or just heights in general. One idea (and I don't know why it took 6 and a half years to think of it) is to declare January 23 My 1-2-3 Cents Day. Why that day? Because it's 1-2-3. I suppose December 3 can also be My 1-2-3 Cents Day. We'll play it by ear. 

I need your help in getting the word out. So on Monday, January 23 I ask you to head to social media and use #My123CentsDay and post a pic, video or comment about anything on your mind. It doesn't have to be wrestling related. The most creative (or brown nosing) entries will be awarded prizes! You'll get bonus points for incorporating the still unnamed monkey into your post.

Some people have asked me why this site is called My 1-2-3 Cents. When I started the blog in September 2010 I knew I wanted to write about wrestling. I was encouraged by a friend of mine, Jeff Rose, to do it. Since I knew I wasn't going to be able to have a wrestling news site, I would write about my thoughts and opinions on the business. Because a referee counts 1-2-3 and I'm offering my 2 cents on issues, I created a tag team with both.

Readers seem to take a liking to posts about my life too, so that's why I started incorporating blogs about me and my family. Pop culture is a hobby of mine too and writing about it has become another component here. So it's not just a wrestling site, although that is the primary focus of My 1-2-3 Cents.

This year will be huge for the site. The blog page will hit the million mark. The podcast and YouTube channels are growing and so is the freelance writing business. The future is bright. I thank you for your help in building and developing the brand.
