I'm sure you've experienced this plenty of times. You turn on a radio station, and...lo and behold, what was once an alternative rock station is now playing hispanic music...or vice-versa. Or the station you like literally moved down the dial. I've seen this "dial move" happen twice here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Well, after a few years of writing THIS blog, EverythingSteve.com, I've decided what I don't and DO want to write about. And this is leading me to change both my format as well as my place on the dial. In short:
I DON'T want to be a critic and write negative posts.
I DON'T want to be a wise-ass, simply for the sake of being a wise ass.
I DON"T want to delve into politics, or related issues I don't know much about and don't find empowering.
I DO want to force myself to make positive observations and share them.
I DO want to share positive experiences.
I DO want to become more adept at marketing and selling products and services online that I believe in, and which I think many of you will find useful.
This new blog provides my own 'recommendation engine' for thoughts, experiences, products and services that I like, and which I'm sure many of you will as well. While I could have simply reformatted THIS TypePad site to do that, I wanted to start fresh in a new and clean house. And I didn't want my new house to include posts and topics that are inconsistent with the new look and feel.
Now, I know I could attract even more readers by putting up a more focused single-topic blog. And I will likely do that in the next several months. But for now, my "topic" is stuff-that-I-like. Come join me in my new home.
Incidentally, I'll be redirecting my "everythingsteve.com" URL to that new home in coming days. As long as I keep THIS blog up, you can find it at http://stevediamond.typepad.com. Thank you!
