An Unconventional Path to Blog Identity: Nonconformity

by Joe on April 30, 2009

After I first started struggling through my blog identity crisis an old coworker of mine @robpederson, sent me a tweet:

“@joebuddejr This might help with your blog identity crisis

Obviously, I’ll try anything to figure out this blogging identity crisis…

After arriving at the link the title of the site caught my eye, “The Art of Nonconformity: Unconventional Strategies for Life, Work and Travel” a blog written by Chris Guillebeau.

In his manifesto, a very well crafted e-book, Chris explains how you can change your life to become a full time blogger.  He says we will learn the following things:

  • How I Became a Full-Time Writer in 279 Days
  • The Complete Revenue Estimate for my Personal Site in 2009
  • The World Domination Strategy for Establishing Your Brand
  • Avoiding the Vampires who Want You to Fail
  • Why Adsense (and most other Web Advertising) Sucks
  • How to Stay Off the Digg Home Page and Still Get All the Traffic You Need

Now, sure some of these topics apply to my blog, but at this point, I am not a full time blogger – shocking I know.  Anyways, the valuable thing in this book is to understand the questions he asked himself to write this.  So reading it, I have been asking myself, what questions has he asked to get the results he desired.

The power of introspection is at work. I sure hope I can find my blog’s identity through this e-book!
