I Hate the word 'blog'Read Now
Susie E Caron (c) 8/14/2020
I hate the word ‘BLOG’.
It's too definite, too final, and too limiting. Today I renamed the title of my web site writing to this:
"B ' Twee You & Me" for several good reasons.
A Little ‘Blog’ History
Originally online writing was termed a ‘log’, like a journal. According to Wikipedia, a fellow named Jorn Barger coined the term ‘weblog’ in 1997 and later altered to our familiar ‘blog’ by Peter Merholz. Since that time it’s been used as both noun and verb. Thus, our musings online are called blogs and we blog anytime we wish. But as I mentioned I hate the word and especially in its narrow application.
I am tired of being advised to ‘narrow my brand’, gauge everything to one particular avatar for my audience, build an email list or a ‘funnel’ ( to get sales). This isn’t me, certainly not all of me. So, I sat down to write this article not to just rant, or explain, or even give myself permission to alter my title. I write it to let you know I will do that which I’ve done all my life in a variety of ways: I will create what encourages and supports you.
To do this, I will write to inspire, entertain, inform, encourage, delight, advocate, exhort, and warn. I am more than one element of a personality, career, talent, interests, and predilections. I am more than an author of picture books. More than an artist. More than a wife, mother, Christian, pet owner, horse lover, entrepreneur. I am me, with decades of experiences, multi faceted personality, multiple talents and interests. Why limit myself to a ‘branded idea’ of who I am and how I can encourage you. I want to write about anything that suits my fancy that may also help you.
Today, I am casting off all the advice from ‘guru’s’ of social media and marketing. I am throwing out any need to ‘brand’ myself (that happens to cattle and livestock). I toss aside any thought of necessity to set up some plan or order to my writing. Instead I want you to know you are thought of, cared for and loved. You inspire my thought and drive me to reach out.
Why? Because of Love
When asked which were the greatest commandments Jesus replied:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."The second is this: "Love your neighbor as yourself." No other commandment is greater than these. Mark 12:30-31 (Also Matthew 22:37-40)
My topics may vary over time. The flavor of my writing may vary. However, my purpose for putting words to paper will always prove to be to encourage and support all those I love. If you are reading this know that you are loved and in my prayers.
