Yeah, you know what’s going on here.
Sure, it’s another New Year’s Resolution to put up a post every day, but sometimes you just have to use what ever mechanism works. And right now, at this moment, staying on a blog post roll for at least 2 days in a row is getting me back into the habit. So let me be a little pedestrian for a moment.
I’m not even promising that I’m going to keep this up indefinitely, which I know is an easy cop out, but I’m doing it today. And for today, it’s working.
I always wonder how some of those guys can keep up the great content every single day, but I suppose they worked at it for a while, until it became something that they just do, and not a burden or chore.
The real effort, I think, is not just writing every day, but looking for content every day. And that content must be connected to your personal branding – what do you want to be known for? Every post counts a little something.
Well, I haven’t quite figured that out yet, ‘my brand’, although I am being known for something, even if it is not intentional. We all are. Our entire footprint on the web or in person paints a picture of what we are about, whether we like it or not.
What kind of picture are you painting?
I know for a fact that there are a lot of talented musicians in the world that you have never heard of.
Like this guy for example.
By the same token, there are a lot of good blogs out there that some people may never see (like this one. The one you’re reading.)
So why not share a little and spread the knowledge of something good.
(Okay, so he happens to be a friend at work.)
(Okay, so the musician happens to be my brother.)
How else would I find these things?
Oh yea, I suppose I could surf the net too. But it doesn’t hurt to start with your world.
