What the heck is a blog? A blog is defined on Wikiepdia as “(a portmanteau of the term web log) a discussion or information site published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first.”
This is a simple definition. Black and white. In other words, a 2D definition. You’ll find that blogs many blogs are inspirational, motivational, and have improved many people’s lives.
Just in the business/money/entrepreneurship niche you will find the following blogs (which happen to be my favorite):
Now these blogs are great! Sometimes I can’t stop reading them. But I have found myself in a rut – of reading. As Ramit Sethi said on his blog, I need to stop consuming and start producing.
Producing is sometimes quite difficult. After reading so much of these blogs, I can’t help but think I have so much to live up to. I must only write things that provide incredible, incredible value. But how do I even know what is valuable? I don’t. Therefore I must learn.
About a month ago I found Chris Guillebeau’s secret to writing success in his A Brief Guide to World Domination. It is the idea filing system Getting Things Done (affiliate link).
Now I’ll use the Getting Things Done program for this website. I’ll use this as my repository of ideas as well as list and test my projects on here. Hopefully I will not get caught-up too much in the details and keep posting on a regular basis.
I figure that with every blog post I’ll further grow and develop as an author. I’ll learn and expand my world.
This is the nature of blogging. I’m glad to be able to join the experience 🙂
