So I’ve decided to create yet another blog. This time with WordPress.com… I’ve always maintained that self-hosting your own blog is the way to go and I still do believe this. For this particular project, I decided to take a different route. There’s a few reasons that I decided to create this blog with WordPress.com…
First of all, I run a site over at The WordPress Classroom. The site isn’t The WordPress.org Classroom. It’s the WordPress Classroom. It only makes sense that, at some point, I dive in to more detail about how to use WordPress.com. Personally, I’ve never had a site hosted on WordPress.com. I figured this would be a great way to really dive in myself and learn about everything WordPress.com hosted blogs have to offer. To be honest, I’m pretty impressed so far with everything that WordPress.com has to offer. There are a ton of cool features that are free with an account.
Second, I didn’t want to take this blog too seriously. I didn’t feel like purchasing a domain name for it, I didn’t want to customize a theme for it, and I really have no intention (right now) of monetizing this site in any way whatsoever. I just wanted a site that was quick and that I could set it up in a matter of about 3 minutes.
Why am I starting yet another blog, you may ask…
Well Business and Blogs and Beyond The Hype are my outlets for everything marketing related. I like to write long, in-depth posts over on Business and Blogs about successes and failures that I’ve had in my business online. Beyond the Hype is my place where I get people to teach me how to do things that I’m not the greatest at and then turn around and share those ideas with the World. The WordPress Classroom is where I go in to great depth teaching WordPress. All of these outlets are places where I share my business, marketing, and technical knowledge. I really have no outlet for really sharing personal stuff.
That’s what this site is about… This is my outlet for whatever the hell I feel like talking about. This is my site that’s for me. I’m not monetizing it and, other than having these posts automatically shared on some social networking sites, I’m not doing anything to generate traffic to this site. This site is here so that I can post quick rants about whatever I want.
I may talk about politics one day and my fitness goals the next day. This is my “anything goes” site. Some posts may be 4 sentences long and some may be 10 page rants on something that’s been bugging me. It’s just and outlet for everything that’s on my mind.
Most likely, if you follow this page, you’ll hear a lot about my fitness goals, my travels, my photography, my diet, movies, music, tv shows, books, and the occasional political rant. So be warned now… There really is no major theme to this site and I probably will talk about anything. If you do read this though, please leave comments. That’s the best part about blogging in my opinion. I love interacting and reading people’s comments and replying.
Cool…? So that’s what this blog is about. My random thoughts and opinions. Hopefully some people think it’s cool. If you don’t, oh well. I’ll keep posting random stuff any way…
