Called Out

January 17, 2009

in Personal,Social Media

It seems that my esteemed fellow MIT alum, Bill Cammack, felt the need to call me out regarding my website stats.

Like Bill, I know you were all keeping score of my stats and too wondered what had happened.

The truth is, I often times don’t know what to do about this blog. Sure, I write about things I feel like getting off my chest in regards to what’s going on with my professional community. But sometimes, I don’t necessarily enjoy writing about those things. I have my musings, my opinions, but rarely do they ever make it to my blog window. I have a few IM conversations, I might tweet about the topic once or twice–and I am done. I was never really into writing about these things on a blog because that’s not why I began blogging years ago. I have always been a personal blogger. In the past I wrote about my life, and left the water cooler web professionals to muse about the industry on their blogs–blogs that I read faithfully. These days I figure that a domain with my name on it deserves to be a place where I can leave my own thoughts—at my own pace.

So Bill needs to fall back, my site stats don’t concern me!

To an extent, Bill is right, in a round about way. I need to at least post regularly. So, that being said, I am going to try my best to be regular around here, and put more effort into shaping what it is I think this place should be.

Hi Liz, welcome back to . . .your site.
I, too, struggle with what to put on my personal web site. I know I want to keep it so that people are directed to it when searching for me. However, I want it to be more than just a marketing tool. Until I figure it out, I use Twitter Tools to collect my tweets into a daily digest.
