I haven’t blogged in almost two weeks. Things got pretty hectic with the holidays. I was winding up the school year and getting ready for Christmas. It’s funny how adding a little bit of stress to your life can derail you.
I’m back on track…to some degree. My new goal is to write blog posts twice a week; once for Athletic Skills and once for Coach Ron Usher. If I write posts twice a week, it will give me time to work on marketing, connecting and writing new material.
Speaking of new material…I learned that my Vision Exercise book on Kindle sold 12 copies last year. Not too shabby! It’s not enough for me to retire on but who knows…maybe some day. If you’re looking on how to improve your team’s vision skills then check it out here.
I also learned how to put up a banner on my Facebook page. And I’m working on adding pictures, quotes and workout ideas. Join me here: https://www.facebook.com/CoachRonUsher. If you have some pictures of your athletes in action, feel free to post. I’m hoping that the Facebook page will open up a large dialogue for parents and coaches.
While I was on vacation, Melissa and I got a chance to talk about the websites, products and marketing. We realize it’s too big of a project for me to do part time. Plus, I like writing but find that it takes a lot of time and self-discipline. Two things I don’t always have.
To help out, we are looking for coaches that would like to blog about their sport or their ideas. You will have your own page and be able to post from your computer.
The sports that we are interested in are:
- Track and Field
- Competitive Martial Arts
- Water Polo
- Skiing/Snow Board
I think that covers most of the high school and youth sports. If I’m missing yours, let me know.
If you want to “own” a sport, that can be done. At first, we might have multiple bloggers but I’d like to keep it limited. Also, there should be room for multiple coaches at different levels. For instance, a high school soccer coach and an U/10 coach.
If you’re interested in blogging with me, let me know. Let’s have a super successful 2014!
