Ok. New year, new start. Again.

I’ve been contemplating just what the purpose of this site/blog/whatever would be for quite some time, but I just seem to need to get over the initial problem of actually writing something on it. As I’m sure everyone is aware, the economic climate in the U.S. is pretty sad at the moment. As such, I find myself among the ever-growing ranks of the unemployed. I knew it was coming, but it’s just such a change after being employed steadily over the past 7 years. It’s a long time. When I was the 20-something member of the Gen-X society, keeping a job for more than a year was a feat, but that didn’t remain the status quo for very long. I actually find it somewhat amazing that I’ve been lucky enough to have jobs with a long track record. The only problem is that I sometimes SHOULD have left much earlier than I did.

So, the question is; “Now What?”

I had at one point thought I would take this site on some personal branding spree, since “Personal Branding” has been such a high profile component of establishing a “Web Presence” as of late. However, I think I’m just going to pursue the initial goal I had for the site; a personal log. “Blog” is SUCH a passe term these days, didn’t you know? LOL

I plan to use this space to document my possible venture into freelancing, and actually embarking on that road that could lead to working for myself for a change. I’ve signed up for some online marketing courses, I’ve gotten some new books to read to help me make some educated decisions about this possible new path, and I’m working to relauch some online endevours that could have some real financial impact if I can just FOCUS on getting all the processes working the way they should.

I need something to look back on, as I start down this new road, to remind me what I should and shouldn’t be doing, and to maybe help those looking to travel this same route behind me. If anyone IS actually reading this, let me know what you think. I swear I’ll pay more attention!
