Taking control.

So I’ve had this blog for a long time. almost 4 years to be exact.

In this time, It’s changed from a personal blog, to a science and tech blog, to a tech blog, to a social media blog. And then, it died.

I started listening to advice from people on what to do with it, what direction to take it, what to put or what not to put on it. And in the process, I feel like the whole motivation behind the blog died.

No longer will I wait til some great news comes out to write something. No longer will I pretend to chase down something that is probably regurgitated on 80 billion other blogs. Yes, I work in the internet marketing industry, and as such, my blog should reflect that.

But you know what? I guest blog my thoughts and strategies for internet marketing on plenty of blogs (our BlueGlass blog included) and I really don’t have the time or effort to make this into some “top social media blog”- and it doesn’t need to be.

My time is going where it should be- work. I can’t sit around and blog all day about the industry because I’m (happily) working in it and learning everyday.

I like tech. I like advertising. I like science. I like ridiculousness. I like stupid videos. I like serious stuff. I like music. I need an outlet for this otherwise who would I be? A shell of who I am?

I like what I like, and I really think that this blog (branded after myself) should reflect that. I feel like this blog, like other interests or passions of mine, has been skewed to what I do on the daily and not necessarily reflective of the direction I want to go.

So, in order to take charge of everything in my life, I’m starting with this blog. I’m going to learn what I want to learn. I’m going to find a way to make it.

No more distractions. No more wasting time. No more letting other people decide things for me. I know what I want and I just need to have tunnel vision. All this sidetracking and wondering what other people want to see on here is going to be my doom.

Like this change, or not, I don’t care. I’m sure you’ll be back to read anyway.

    In this industry it’s easy to get ADD. Sometimes just putting the blinders on to get stuff done is what we need to do. Looking forward to reading what comes next for you!

      It’s VERY easy to get ADD… especially when you’re ADD susceptible like me :)nnI find that keeping Esvienne as a social media blog is essentially making me double up everything I’m doing since I dedicate the majority of my time happy to BG.nnEsvienne has been around for a long time and needs some love too- and it’s not good productivity to let this blog sit around and try to compete with blogs that other people have all day to fine tune.nnHopefully what this turns into will keep my readership and expand some too. :)
