This was my original mission statement:
The Mission of this Blog is to provide a place that will facilitate my ability to:
1-Be able to say, “I was just writing about that in my blog” in that really pretentious way that only bloggers can do. Preferably while holding a snifter of brandy and looking at someone through a monocle.
2-Satisfy my writerly exhibitionist need for feedback without the constant irritation of things like letters of rejection.
3-Be able to say, “I’m published” at cocktail parties as long as they don’t press too hard on how exactly I’m using the word “published.”
4-Be passive aggressive towards people who have slighted me in an internationally accessible medium. Also, preferably, while holding a brandy.
5- Have fans hanging off of me no matter where I go. Bloggers are the new rockstars. That's what the dude at the Moleskine Journal Store assured me.
But I found this to be just a little bit too honest for most folks, so I’ll go with my second round of better-sounding reasons.
Thus: our new and improved mission statement.
The mission of this Blog is to provide a place where I can:
1-Control What People See When They Search for You on Google
2-Share My Experiences in Real Time
3- Impart what little wisdom I have gathered over the years
(Each of those is their own link to their own article.)
