I don’t know why I do this.
Oh, now I remember… because I can.
There’s just something very intriguing about publishing your own words in a public space. (I guess that’s why so many people do it.) But the space has been ruined by marketers. Not the good kind, the bad kind of marketers.
Everywhere you go, there are too many advertisements. “Buy this, get that! Like this, subscribe here.”
I guess that’s what you get when you have an open space where anyone can say anything.
That’s what allows me to write this.
So I have to be okay with it.
When anyone can say anything, you’re probably not going to like some of it.
Like this. Why are you even reading it?
Well, thank you. It helps me write better.
That was fun.
Who knew I’d start writing again?
I’ve always thought about writing. In fact, I have been writing… in my journal, with paper and pen. I like that kind of writing.
Recently, I started writing on 750words.com. It’s a site that encourages you to write 750 words every day. It has all kinds of metrics and tracking, and a nice blank space for you to write whatever you want. And it’s private. I only missed 4 days last month. I’m going for a full month streak this month.
But it’s private. This is public. This is a totally different world. Someone could possibly read this. (Although very unlikely.) So I write a little bit differently. A little more calculated. Even if it is mostly drivel 🙂
I need a place to experiment. So this is it. It’s what I’ve been doing with this blog for 10+ years. (Well, maybe I’ve taken long breaks within those years.)
When I start another serious blog, I’ll let you know. Meanwhile, you can hang out here, that’s fine with me.
I can’t believe this is still here.
I’ve had this blog for many years, as far back as when blogs first started. I was curious and wanted to try it out, so I began experimenting with all kinds of features, videos, audio, and text. One of my favorites was the ability to just call a phone number, enter a code, and I could record an audio post.
I may just keep doing that.
Or I may just write gibberish.
Nobody is going to see this anyway. (Except you 🙂
Thanks for reading. Stay tuned. You never know what might happen!
It’s amazing how fast a year can go by.
Well, just because I haven’t posted here doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy doing other stuff. (I know, I shouldn’t have mentioned it because you probably didn’t even notice the dates anyway.) I’m going to still keep this around because it does have some good stuff on it, and I can still experiment. So stay connected.
In the meantime, if you want to check out my latest effort, go to http://areyoucuriousenough.com
That’s where the good stuff is. And I’ll be updating that too.
You can buy the book on Amazon, but if you buy it through this site, this guy, Greg Habstritt, will donate stuff to charity and give you some things if you buy more than one book. He doesn’t get anything, he’s just trying to get you to spread the book.
And here’s a presentation that Peter gave at Joe Polish’s Genius Network meeting that people pay $25,000 to be a part of. He lays it all out here:
