A little background about the beginning of these new blogs

(Scroll down for copies of all of my new Bite-Size Blogs; most recent listed first)

June 6, 2016 — the date I posted the first BSB. When I typed that date, it reminded me of what happened on this same date–50 years ago. While driving my 1960 Chevy to work, I happened to glance down at the odometer and saw that it was reading 66,666.6 miles at that precise moment. Later that day, while in a store, the clerk asked me for the date to put on the receipt for my purchase.

This is the model and color of my 60 Chevy in 1966.

That’s when I said “June 6” and he proceeded to write 6-6-66 on the invoice while muttering, “Wow, that’s a lot of sixes.” That’s when I said “Oh, my God” as I remembered my odometer reading earlier that day. I felt at the time that I must’ve been in the “Twilight Zone,” a prominent TV show at the time. I was in college at the time and graduated almost exactly two years later, during the first week of June.

My point here is that I will never forget June 6, 1966 and I hope that my readers will never forget June 6, 2016–the day that I launched this new generation of blogs that I predict will be much more effective than my original version of full-size blogs. As of today, almost 1,000 of them still reside on my website and have been read by millions of people in nearly 200 countries. The first one was posted on 2-10-11 and entitled: Barbara Walters…A Missed Opportunity.

For your convenience, here is a link to the very first BSB, posted on 6-6-16. The Beta test period was highly successful and I will now be posting at least one or two of these new blogs per week.

    Love these bite size blogs Jim! I often will save a link to emails I get for later reading and then often don’t get to it. These “BSBs” are quick and I’m able to read them right away. Thanks for all you do! The world needs more Jim Hicks’!!!
