On Building a Foundation…

My original goal when I created this blog was to provide a journal of my experiences in moving from a Corporate to Freelance lifestyle. I wanted to provide at least one path so that people can follow along and see if my formula works for them.

Well, after a year it seems that although I have learned a lot, I have not moved as far as I have wanted, and I have not done a good job of documenting my progress. I feel that even after a year, I have not yet found my “voice”. I have decided to go back to the basics.

The first thing I want to do is improve the quality of the blog. I want to eventually have a community of readers who are in the same position that I am in; we are not satisfied with our jobs and want something better. Instead of working harder, we want to work smarter and on our own terms. Also, once we succeed, how do we keep the fire burning inside of us? How do we keep motivated? How do we hone our skills, stay creative? What tools will we use? What methods?

I am making the effort to improve the layout of the site. I am getting really familiar with WordPress; in fact I have made several manual modifications to this sites default template (with which I am really happy!), and will likely make more. My target audience is Web Developers, Copywriters, and Internet Marketers, and I hope to have information relevant to each. I am going to create pages for each as well as continuing to keep the main page a a journal of my attempts at lifestyle design.

I have also started reading articles like this and this on how to be a better blogger. I want to be more effective in my writing. I want to communicate better.

Oh yeah…I am still trying to come up with a cool logo. Stay tuned…
