I’m taking part in Darren Rowse’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge. It’s day one of the blog challenge and the first assignment is called ‘Writing an Elevator Pitch’. If you are interested in finding out about what Darren is doing with this project and what the first assignment is you can check out the Day 1 Assignment Page Here.

I know that I’ve somewhat neglected this blog, mostly due to illness, but I’m ready to get back in the game. I had to think a little bit about what my goal is with Dominick Evans Online. I’ve been quite random in my postings on here, in the past. First, I wanted to make it clear that I’m not out to inspire people. I hate when people say that about those of us in disabilities. Just by living my every day life I supposedly inspire others. I don’t get why. Sure, I have to do things differently to get up and perform daily tasks, but that’s normalcy for me and I don’t think my getting out of bed, when everyone else in the world does it, should inspire anyone. If I solved the World Hunger crisis, then you could definitely be inspired by me, but c’mon! I don’t do anything necessarily spectacular!

Second, I didn’t want to make my elevator pitch too preachy. I don’t like being preached at, so I didn’t want to preach at anyone else. This is really a place for sharing my thoughts, my passion, and my zest for life and all its intricacies. So, I sat down (haha) and proceeded to write a short tagline pitch and then an expanded version. Here is what I came up with:

The Dominick Evans Online Tagline

Explore the Life and Thoughts of a Transgender Man in a Wheelchair at Dominick Evans Online

The Dominick Evans Elevator Pitch

Dominick Evans Online is my personal blog, which I use to express my thoughts, share my passions and enlighten those who have no comprehension of what it’s like to be a transgender person and in a wheelchair. A bit random from time to time, the primary focus of this blog is to show the world that just because I face different challenges life throws at me doesn’t mean I don’t still think, feel and act like anyone else. Using humor, political thought and zeal I attempt to take readers through a day in the life of Dominick Evans.

So, what do you think about my tagline and my elevator pitch. Does it accurately describe the kind of things I’ve posted on here at Dominick Evans Online? I hope it has!

Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
