Read My Blog!
Blog. Blogging. Blogger.
These words didn’t even exist 20 years ago. And now they seem to dominate the online landscape. What started as a simple “Web Log” has turned into so much more. News, opinion, diaries, reviews, promotions, etc. But what does it all mean? And what’s the purpose of any individual blog?
Some would argue that the main purpose of a blog is to drive traffic to your blog. But that never appealed to me. I’m not out to sell equipment, teach classes, create webinars, podcasts, or books. So quite frankly, the numbers don’t really matter much.
Let me sum up the purpose of Joe’s Dump in three words: “Creativity”, “Connection”, “Cranberries”.
My goal every week is to be creative. Sometimes it’s opinion. Sometimes poetry. Comedy. Animation. Whatever comes to mind. That’s it… period. No grand scheme or long term plan. No driving sheep to view my site and repost so that more sheep can read. I do this for me. And if you like it, that’s a welcome bonus! We’ve shared something, or have a new thing in common. A connection. For me, that’s much more important than hits, subscribers, and attention.
So, if you’re reading this, thanks! I’m really glad you’re here. And I’m sure I’ll hang out at your place from time to time… Digitally speaking, of course 😉
P.S. Cranberries? Well, I just like ’em. They should be for more than just Thanksgiving.
