Thanks to all of you who gave me feedback on what the hell it is I do here. I think there is a difference between why and what I write and why you come here — and I wanted to understand that. You helped me clarify some things in my own mind for that I am truly grateful.
For all the talk around the blogosphere these days about brand and mission and purpose and authenticity and marketing I’ve found that I don’t really always fit that model – and that’s okay. This place is more of a discussion – sometimes it’s with you and sometimes it’s just with myself. But this beginning task has helped me think through some focus for this outsidevoice of mine – and that’s a good thing no matter where this site ends up.
So here is my mission statement:
…When I close my eyes my life is a magazine editorial. Styled for ease and elegance and a hint of audacious. Full of information that makes you think and full of stories that make you laugh. Like the type, things are pretty black and white around here. Come join the table – bring a good argument, a great cocktail and an evening bag full of wicked and you’ll fit in just fine…
I am taking part in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge. This is Day 1.
