On the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25th of this year, I launched this blog, ProLife365.com.
Already it has come a long way.
I have you to thank for that, the readers–especially the subscribers–of the blog. So please accept my token of gratitude.
In the few months of blogging, already I have seen hundreds of you sign up to the email list. Thank you for that!
Several opportunities have been given to me to give live interviews on the radio.
I have been a guest on EWTN’s Son Rise Morning Show several times, on Catholic Connection with Teresa Tomeo, and on GRN Alive with Dave Palmer, of the Guadalupe Radio Network.
But so far, my favorite interview was with Jim Sedlak on RadioMaria’s Armed For Battle. He interviewed me for nearly an hour.
All of these interviews are available on the Media page of our site.
I have also had the honor of getting to meet, to speak to, and to interview folks who I otherwise would have never had the pleasure to meet.
For instance, I am now in regular email correspondence with my new friend, Mr. Kevin Williams, up in Colorado, whom I featured in a Pro-Life Warrior Spotlight interview awhile back.
My eBook has been read by hundreds of people, and has received a few valuable endorsements.
In short, I am enjoying my time.
However, I am not writing all this to brag, but actually to ask for help.
To be honest, blogging, editing, and doing the social media is time consuming. Practicing good time management is a priority, and at times a struggle for me.
I am a proud husband and father, and I want to give my family ample time with me. My wife I the most supportive person I have and cherish her encouragement. My kids bring me great joy. They all love me and I want to be around for them.
This is why I felt compelled to write this post, especially to the subscribers of the blog, to reach out to ask for some assistance.
I could use help in specific areas. I will go through my list and then I would appreciate it if you would email me back (firstname.lastname@example.org), to let me know where you might be of assistance.
At a minimum, I am asking everyone to please pray for the success of this blog. That’s a given. Everyone can do that.
Second, I could use a little help with WordPress. That’s the blogging software I use. Might you have some time to spare to help me out a little? All this technological stuff is a bit over my head at times, so I need someone with some expertise, please.
Third, I could use help with audio editing. Does anyone know how to edit down an audio file? I would like to be able to cut a two-hour audio file down to a specific eight-minute portion, for instance.
Fourth, I could use your help in the social media realm. If you like what you are reading here on the blog, and/or you enjoyed the eBook, then please share the content with others. Please invite them to join the email list. Please ‘Share’ the posts on Facebook, and “Retweet” the hyperlinks to blog posts on Twitter. I need your help in this regard.
Fifth, you are invited to share your testimonies with me. I am beginning to collect them, and I am thinking of featuring them (with your permission) in future blog posts. For instance, did you practice contraception but give it up?, Are you a sidewalk counselor and have a story to share? Did you and your spouse adopt? Did the way palliative care was handling for a dying relative of yours rub you the wrong way? You’re invited to share your experience by emailing me (email@example.com).
Sixth, if you have other expertise that you think may be of assistance to this blog, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Lastly, perhaps you think your Church or your group could really benefit by learning more about a particular topic or two discussed on this blog. I want you to know I am available for speaking engagements. I am prepared to discuss a host of particular subjects, and would like the opportunity to travel to come see you.
I will continue to write on these topics, but please, in your charity, consider helping.
We’re in this together. We stand together against the slaughter of the unborn. We oppose death to babies through contraception and in vitro fertilization. We oppose euthanasia, so-called “gay marriage,” and all the other onslaughts from the culture of death.
We are pro-life 100%, 24/7, 365. ProLife365.
Will you please commit to helping out this ministry?
Can you spread the posts and the eBook via social media?
What can you do to help?
