You’re about to enter a room full of strangers, where you will have exactly four minutes to tell a story that would convey who you really are. What’s your story?
After listening to the young woman before me, and realized she spoke well beyond her allotted four minutes, and I was next to speak.
I quickly stood up, taking a deep breath, stated my name, along with the name of the city I was born in, and how I was raised. I spoke quickly about my life as a child, teenager, college student and my military career. I spoke real quickly about my marriage, divorce and my years as a parent.
I realized I had fifty-one seconds left, so I started to explain my retirement and current love of writing short stories, flash fiction and poetry. As soon as I started to explain the WordPress site, my time was coming to an end with less than ten seconds to go. My last statement was, WordPress is a blogging site. As I sat down, I noticed everyone was left wondering what was WordPress. After everyone spoke, the entire group of twenty-five gathered around me asking for more information about WordPress, and I now have twenty-five more followers on my site.
