Cha Cha Cha Changes

May 2, 2011

Things are a’ changin, my friends. I’m going to start taking a different approach with my posts here on [AnnieSorensen.com], and I wanted to sit down for a minute to explain a few things.

I love to write, and I love topics like personal development and entrepreneurialism, so when I started this blog I put two and two together and decided I would write about personal development and entrepreneurialism. Seemed like a no-brainer. But what I have come to realize is that while I really love those topics and really love writing about those topics, I also love writing about other stuff, too. Or, I should say, I want to love writing about other stuff, too.

If I felt the desire to write about my canine-baby or my Hubz’s birthday or some embarrasing story from my college days, I would settle with writing it and saving it to my hard drive, where it would sit forever and gather dust. Because after all, topics like that didn’t fit with this ‘lil site.

But then I looked at the name on the website.

And then I looked up the name on my driver’s license. After a brief moment of comparing and contrasting, I slapped myself in the forehead and charged ahead.

From here on out I will be writing more about, well, me, I guess. ALL of me. The goofy stuff, the weird stuff, and the no-one-is-ever-going-to-visit-my-site-again-after-this-but-I’m-going-to-publish-it-anyway…stuff.

There will still be business-y posts, they will just now be mixed in amongst my obsession with popcorn and the story of how I *might* have pulled the fire alarm in the dorm my freshman year of college.

I hope you can handle it.

New flash: I <3 hoodies

This photo has nothing to do with this post. It’s just me. Right now. In my hoodie with my unwashed hair.

So I guess it has everything to do with this post?

But it doesn’t.

Sort of.

So for you, one of the 2.3 readers who frequent my little corner of the Internetz, I’m appreciative. I hope you like what you read. And I hope you feel comfortable sending me a note and telling me if you don’t.

Happy Monday!

All my geeky, book-loving love,
Annie

    Love the idea of making your website/blog more Personal. I have yet to start my own blog because I keep waiting to find this “niche” to write about or become an expert in a certain field. Starting to think I should JUST START & choose to write about the topics I love & my personal experiences. What your doing is great and I think your readers will love the see a personal side to your brand.

    Love it! I think blogs are best when they are personal. People love peaking into the lives of others. Looking forward to seeing more Annie unplugged. Glad I am part of the 2.3 too.

    but even when you were restricting yourself to business and personal development, it was all from YOUR unique perspective, so Rock On!

    My thoughts on this were best expressed by Sean in Good Will Hunting: Personally… I don't give a shit about all that, because you know what, I can't learn anything from you, I can't read in some f*ckin' book. Unless you want to talk about you, who you are. Then I'm fascinated. I'm in. But you don't want to do that do you sport? You're terrified of what you might say. Your move, chief.
