I have things to say, but I’ve felt trapped by wanting to do this “right” so have postponed starting actually saying things. I couldn’t figure out a clever name, so I started researching what makes a good blog name.There were some places that gave technical advice, others gave hints of good help if I paid them some money for their 3, 8,12, 20 steps…wait, those were easy steps. All in all I came away with the following:
- be concise
- be unique
- be relevant to your topic
- know your audience
I’ve learned each of these lessons before. Most after missing the mark. Most more than once.
So, what do I want to say, and who do I want to talk with?
Cathartically, there are some things I just need to say to get off my chest and maybe just hear how it sounds. My family and friends may want to hear what’s going on in my life. I figure people that work for and with me may be interested in my interpretation of events that may show up in their lives. Perhaps, as I look for new opportunities, people may want to know if my thoughts, etc are a good fit for what they need.
Sometimes these things need to be said in more than a twitter-facebook-a-rific update. I’m all about the elevator speech for lots of things, especially if it’s a pitch that will hook you for the real story, but sometimes my thoughts simply take more than 140 characters. And for God’s sake, grammar, punctuation, and nice, juicy words from a life spent enjoying books and reading can at least be attempted if not mastered.
u ok w/ tht?
That’s how I came up with the name. I figured that most people care about my thoughts and musings as it impacts them and relates to their lives. So, this is Me. As it relates to You.
