I’m pretty excited to be writing the first post for my blog, and while it won’t be about a specific topic, it will explain the purpose and motivation behind the blog itself. I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while, but never really knew what to write about. I generally haven’t spent much time writing since high school, aside from assignments in university, and lately anything related to the businesses I’ve been starting. Certainly nothing for pleasure.
I maintain a journal, but entries in that are few and far between, and certainly not my best writing.
I don’t read as much as I would like, but what I do currently read tends to be blog posts, or articles written by individuals who originally wrote them as blog posts. I’m a huge fan of Pocket, and use a few other services as well, including Feedly, Medium and Instapaper.
I read all sorts of things, but most are focused on entrepreneurship, productivity, travel, science, engineering and design, and often a combination of all of the above (digital nomads anyone?).
What I’ve certainly missed, and wish I had in university, was someone writing about what it’s like to become an entrepreneur, with no previous experience. Most people tend to write about that phase of entrepreneurship after they’ve become successful. While that definitely offers value (hindsight is 20/20), I’m hoping to bring a different perspective.
While entrepreneurship will be the focus, I’ll be writing about all sorts of related topics which I find interesting – productivity, travel, sports, health, fitness, and whatever else on which I think I have something valuable to say.
I’m open to suggestions as well, so let me know if you’re interested in hearing from me on a particular topic.
I hope you enjoy reading, and that the blog brings you value.
