You may have noticed that robbsutton.com has changed a little bit over the past couple of hours. Justtheweb.com hooked me up with a great logo, so I just had to design the rest of the site around it. Overall, everything is coming together and there will still be a couple of tweaks in the future, but I was just sick and tired of seeing all of that white! It was time to bring some life and feeling into my blog and I think we accomplished just that. I am super stoked with the results.
“Laid Back Blogging for Serious Entrepreneurs”
Welcome to the new robbsutton.com…where I am about laid back blogging for serious entrepreneurs. I know…you are thinking…what the hell does that mean? When I started looking at the direction I wanted this blog to take, I sat down for a long time pondering the facts of life. What makes us blog? Why do we start our own businesses? Why do we want to be self sufficient and live on our own terms? The answer was simple…we want to live happier lives.
The problem that I ran into – and I am sure many of you can relate – is that I transferred that seriousness in my entrepreneur life into the rest of my life! What does that equal?! Being serious all the time. We did not start blogging to turn our web venture into another job. We also did not start our blogs to be serious all the time. I believe there is a way to be a serious entrepreneur but have a blast doing it.
Quick story…my daily commute was a disaster. I got the pleasure of driving an hour, in traffic, both ways to work at Atlanta surrounded by hundreds of other fortunate individuals who were all doing the same. As I drove by these dozens of faces, do you know what every single one of them looked like? Mad…mad as hell at the world and they looked like that every day of every week. Now…I do not believe that most of these road warriors set out to be mad that day. I really believe they want to be happy, but – day in and day out – they continue the same routine pissed at the world and they can not figure out why.
As bloggers and entrepreneurs, we bring that same mentality into our projects. It is not our fault. It is how we have been conditioned to treat the activities that bring us income. I look back on some of my posts on my blogs and they read like a textbook. My bland, seriousness was bleeding into the activities that I started so that I could be doing something different…not just a variation of the same. So why was I making my blogging/entrepreneur life as boring as my other work life? It really does not make much sense, but until you take an objective look at things…you won’t even realize you are doing it!
Time To Lighten Up and Enjoy What We Are Doing
Laid back blogging is not unsuccessful blogging…it is actually quite the opposite. Readers are attracted to bloggers that actually enjoy what they are doing when that is seen in their writing. In our quest to make our one and only life enjoyable, we need to treat each and every day like it is our last. We need to take every minute and make the most of it being thankful for what we have and looking forward to experiences of the future. Bland and boring have to go in favor of exciting and new…do you really just want to read another boring blog about blogging and affiliate marketing? I don’t and I surely don’t want to write one…
