I rebranded my site

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

Do you think he rebranded or was he born this cool?

I’ve been thinking for maybe a month or so about rebranding my site to cover self-promotion, which I’m told is my specialty. Visiting the Eastside Entrepreneurs event Thursday and then the Bigfoot Blogging Conference today, I decided that it was finally time to follow through on that.

My original thought was that I should focus on Social Media, but honestly, I think that’s just a buzz phrase for the evolution of marketing and general, non-face-to-face communication. Plus, as a well-respected friend in SEO and web design said the other day, “Social Media is bullshit.”

I don’t think I would go that far, but to tell the truth, I do believe that a lot of people are looking to get ahead with the latest buzzworthy technology, but they don’t know the basics of using that technology for self-promotion. That’s where I come in.

Going forward, I will begin having guest posts on here every now and then, and I’ll be contributing in a more direct fashion to my blogs of interest. I would like this to become a much more focused discussion. If there’s anything y’all would like to hear about, please comment, email, etc.
