Past Blogs


Writing blogs takes dedication and commitment. Personally, I have struggled with this because my Multipotentialite nature means that I quickly become bored with my own self-promotion and move on to the next thing.


It's odd that I have no problem with staying the course when it's to benefit someone else, but when it's self-promoting, I lose interest and move on. I guess I'm more interested in expanding my knowledge than in explaining myself. But I have tried multiple times before.


While I've also ghost-written blogs for many companies I've worked with/for, here are the ones that I created for myself. You'll be able to see how I started out strong and then... faded out. Hopefully, you'll be able to learn not to make the mistakes I've made when you're writing your own blogs.

OMGWTFWYT

This blog, I created as a response to all the ads I saw that seemed so terrible I'd expect them to actually LOSE customers rather than gain them. It's a fun little read. I kept my identity secret because some of the ads I was commenting on might have offended my clients at the time. But I felt so strongly about the ads featured that I had to do something.




MARKETING, MANGA & MUSIC

This one will demonstrate how I've always been a multipotentialite. You have no idea how hard it was for me to pick only three things to use to title the blog. It was designed to be a personal blog that showcased how I truly understood marketing, and to promote myself for potential public speaking events. At the time, I was doing public presentations on how to use social media at community events, as a representative of where I was working. (It was People To My Site, which is no longer a company - they changed direction and their name to The Shipyard.)


I utilized many of the strategic practices in this blog - but not consistently. And I didn't update it consistently. As a result, it's out there in limbo right now. I've learned a lot since then, and I do NOT like using WordPress, so I've decided not to try to give it CPR, but rather to start completely new here.




HER NAME IS OLIVER

This blog was designed to be my personal blog, rather than a professional one - where I would write on the topics that interested me but which might seem too casual for a site where I was trying to convince people I would be good to work with.


The title is based on the fact that I spent my 20s in a band that released 7 albums internationally and toured the country a couple of times: His Name Is Alive. I was the singer. It was a great time, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have definite thoughts about how it ended for me, but I'm going to take the advice of Thumper's mom on this. I love it when people recognize the work I did with the band, though, so don't feel like you can't mention it.


I still sing - although mostly in the car at the top of my lungs, and mostly in Japanese as I listen to the songs I have downloaded or on CD of Suga Shikao or Rie Fu.
