To blog or not to blog?

I’ve been wrestling with the question of whether or not to blog for my business for the past two years. I’ve been wrestling with the question of “what do I want to blog about?” since 2007.

My intuition’s Magic 8 Ball has two answers on the idea of whether or not I should blog:

  1. If this matter is going to continue to resurface frequently, then you might as well take action and do something about it.
  2. When in doubt, toss it out.

My intuition does not have a ton of patience for hemming and hawing. It only has the capacity for three responses, the two listed above and, “Reply Hazy Try Again Later.” (Which is usually code for: “You’ve got enough on your plate right now. Save it for later when you might have the bandwidth to pull it off successfully.”)

I’ve spent the last two years in the “When in doubt, toss it out,” camp of thinking, yet the topic continues to come up. Therefore, I might as well take action and do something about it.

This blog is going to go 1 of 2 ways:

  1. Something will come of it. My work on it will progress and it will develop into the platform my business needs to better serve my clients.
  2. It will die on the vine like countless blogs before it across all of the interwebs.

I’ve actually got a year’s worth of ideas and at least a quarter’s worth of content that I could load into blog posts right now, so here we go 2016. Welcome to Flourishly blog! Where at the very least, I intend to spend 2016 doing better to close my “taste gap” so I can connect better with the people I am best matched to serve:
