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 http://tinyurl.com/d8p8s3

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!
