I’m not trying to usher you in any particular direction. I’m trying to help you clarify what you want to achieve with your blog. When you know what you want to achieve, blogging becomes much clearer, and you can make a living from it much sooner.
Please, I hope you didn’t mistake my intent. I was rolling my eyes at myself not you. My hard-headed Taurean stubbornness…or thickness.
I’m usually much quicker than this. Actually much easier for me to find this in others than myself. Amy and I were just doing some quick evaluations for some folks. We got to the meat of THEIR issues so very quickly…now if we were just so quick about our own, right?
I think you are spot on. I’m trying to collapse my various business models. Sonia called it “my Ikea project” in January’s Q & A with Chris. And Sonia’s post today also resonated.
I think that I stalk you, all of the Copyblogger folks, as well as my favorite HOA hosts who are all talking content marketing to businesses…as well as white hat SEO. I love that geeky stuff.
I adore doing the audits of people’s websites. I like the analysis part of it.
All of that helps businesses tell their story.
So I’ll pull another late-nighter, and do the fourth ideal reader.
And no worries. I KNOW I need to do this! I feel as if it’s one of those paper walls they used in Old India to trap tigers. I just have to have the confidence…or stubbornness to push through this barrier.
