This blog has been live since the spring of this year. At this point, I do not pretend to be a very good blogger.
A few reasons:
- have lots more intelligent (or so I think) thoughts than I take the time to write about and share here.
- I am not a very good networker. I do not visit lots of other blogs and leave comments with my URL. I do not respond to any of the requests to "share my perfect day" and such on other blogs. (Way too cool for that! 🙂
- I am not super focused in my content. At this point I think it’s more stuff I find interesting than the sort of how to/insightful/controversial stuff with a unified theme that will lead people to direct all their friends and enemies here.
Right now, it is what it is. I mostly enjoy the experience (I just need a full time tech whiz at my disposal) and know the site will continue to evolve over time. And hey, it’s growing despite me at this point…
However, the cool thing about a blog (and why you should ditch your newsletter) is how "alive" blogs are. I can share pictures, audio, and videos easily. People can comment right on the site and begin a dialogue of sorts. In short, it’s easier to connect with people and share who you really are.
Here’s the best part — In this month’s Drewsletter (below), I mentioned I read and enjoyed Julian Rubinstein’s book. Who’s in my inbox today? Why, it’s the author…! (I assume he found me through a Google alert that found his name on my site.)
That never happened with my newsletter… but it’s happened a few times here already also happened (i.e., Tim Ferriss, author of The Four Hour Workweek)
So, while Drew Rozell.com has yet to find its way to the lips of every good citizen, it’s been a rewarding experience on many levels so far.
If you love to write and want an outlet to express yourself (and maybe market yourself), give blogging a shot…
After all, the world needs more blogs… 🙂
And if you have one, leave a comment with your URL below… or not!
