Writing is such a complex and simple thing. I enjoy writing, but trying to organize all of the unique aspects of my writing can be a challenge. Some things that I write may work well for some people, but not for others. Today, I would like to start to work out a solution to this.
Three Places To Find My Content
I have come to a decision about what to do with my content: blogs and websites. In the next couple of months, I will begin splitting my writing up into three different channels:
1) I will continue to use my existing blog at http://trevorstasik.blogspot.com/, but will limit my content there to discussions about the craft of writing, fictional writing, personal discussions, and any other topics that do not easily fall into the next two blogs. My legacy business, finance, and HR posts will remain on the Blogspot site for the time being.
2) I will use the relatively new LinkedIn blog as my base of operations for future posts about career related issues, business, finance, fundraising, and HR.
3) I will start an entirely brand new blog and website to discuss the topic of genealogy and genealogical writing. In the future, there may be some products or books that will be made available here. I will probably set this up on Squarespace, as per recommendations from my wife, as well as from Dan Benjamin, Merlin Mann, and the crew over at 5by5. I will let you all know that new blog and website once it is set-up.
Additionally, I expect that there will be some cross over between the three blogs will be crossover. Topics that are appropriate for more than one blog, such my as my thoughts on productivity, may be posted in more than one location. There expect there will be some crossovers when it comes to notifications and announcements (such as this post today). However, there should be some original, exclusive content on all three eventually to give you a reason to visit all three, if you were to feel so inclined.
I do have some other message channels for those that can't get enough of this. I have my Twitter at https://twitter.com/tstasik. Feel free to visit me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/TrevorStasik. I am not on Google+ as much as I used to be, but that profile is here at https://plus.google.com/+TrevorStasik/posts. I even have a Pinterest that I upda
te once in a blue moon at http://pinterest.com/tstasik78/. While I may occasionally link to my posts from these other channels, they are intended to be mostly personal (with pictures of my dog). They will not be the primary source of distribution of any of my posts moving forward.
So, if you have any thoughts on this, please let me know. Leave me a comment. Hopefully you like the changes that will be coming in the following weeks and months. I know I will enjoy it because it will allow me to think about my content more effectively and efficiently.
