When I originally started my blog, I just dived in and started writing. My first post was entitled, “Coffee Shop Networking” and that was posted on June 25, 2011, which was 1.5 years ago. Now, you’d think that if I had started blogging in 2011, I’d have oodles of content, right? Wrong. To date, I’ve averaged a grand total of ELEVEN posts. Oh, the shame! But, no need to cry over spilled milk.
The purpose of THIS blog post is to explain what my blog will be about and what you’ll find here when you visit on a weekly basis. I’ll be sticking to a schedule of one blog post a week, dealing with a topic related to marketing, technology, business, or a reflection on life’s little quirks. My blog posts will generally fall into those four buckets, with the occasional book or product review sprinkled here and there.
The content of this blog will be guided by two blogging principles. The first blogging principle is:
- Be Interesting
I’d like to thank my friend Megan Wittling as being the inspiration behind the golden nugget of wisdom that is Principle #1. When I spoke to her in a phone conversation a while back, I asked her, “What’s your secret to churning out blog content on a regular basis?” Megan’s responded by saying, “When I blog, I just ask myself, ‘What do I want to share with the world today?’ and then I start sharing. Simple!”
The second blogging principle is:
- Be Useful
Catherine Caine used this sole piece of information to start her own blog and I’ve decided to appropriate that nugget of wisdom to get into my own blogging groove.
Thus concludes the end of my launch post. I’m looking forward to writing stuff that’ll get the gears in your head whirring and cause you to shamelessly ogle . . . all the words and pretty pictures!
