A fresh start on the blog

I love writing.

As many of you might know, I have countless side projects where I slam on the keyboard for a variety of reasons, whether that be to rank well for Netflix and Hulu-related search terms, debating everything related to the NFL with random internet citizens, discussing marketing strategy with dozens of other folks in the industry, or spewing random thoughts on Twitter, I just enjoy words and arguments, and creativity, and thoughtfulness, and more words.

Maybe sometimes too often I ramble in non-sequitur fashion, but it brings me personal satisfaction to string my thoughts together. I don’t even pretend to be great at it, but the point is I always enjoy it.

A few months ago I realized how little I was publishing on my own blog anymore, as I had moved most of my thoughts to more lucrative endeavors. But I realized that while making money is certainly fun, nothing beats the occasional free association that comes with staring at a blank slate on a personal blog. So I challenged myself at the beginning of the year to refocus my own publishing a bit into the things I enjoy talking about most. With that in mind, it is also my own goal to publish one blog post approximately every two weeks (give or take) in my own free time.

So what will I focus on? Here is an oversimplified list of the things I enjoy the most that fit best within this goal: marketing theory, current events, my own crazy thoughts and perhaps a bit of general recapping of life experience. No strict rules, and more than anything, my intentions here are solely for my own personal growth and reflection. Translation: I don’t plan on trying to build any sort of personal brand off of this, I’m not trying to make any money or sell you anything, and I’m not trying to stand atop any soapbox.

A few notes:

  • All my old blog articles can be found here because I’m extremely disinterested in exporting and 301 redirecting it all, so I’ll just let them all expire in the old subdirectory.
  • My side projects are still alive and well.
  • A lot of the goofier stuff from my previous site is gone, but the Get Links button will always live on

Climb on,

Rob
