What’s the Point of This Blog?

So I’m here at SOBCon08 learning about the art of business blogging, and the challenge this morning was to come up with a statement in ten words or less that tells what I do. Here’s what I came up with:

I help parents solve discipline problems and build loving homes.

That’s my goal, anyway. I like how distilling my purpose down so clearly will help me focus, and in retrospect I can see that I’ve been a bit blurry on that up until now. I’m looking forward to where this will take us.

Earnest Parenting: encouragement and discipline for all.

    I love it, Amy!

    When I wrote the tagline for The Writing Journey, I realize that was, essentially, my mission statement: “Helping Internet Writers To Achieve Their Dreams.”

    Now, every time I write a post, it is with that in mind. Even if I’m writing about Twitter, it’s in that context.

  2. First off, great ‘tagline.’ It tells me exactly what you do. And since I’m a parent myself, if I was facing those problems in our family, I would know immediately that you might be able to help me. Great work.

    Second, it was lovely meeting you at SOBCon. What a surprise to meet a fellow Michigander. I’ll be watching your blog, that’s for sure.

    Hi Dawud! Thanks for visiting. I’ll be following your progress as well.

    hi amy.
    I was at SOBcon but we didn’t meet, at least as far as I know.

    I like your 10 words statement. It is clear and focusing and gets at discipline from the love side rather than the stereotypical side.

    Hi Jon,

    Actually I think we did meet briefly on Saturday afternoon but someone called me away from the conversation shortly after we shook hands. You introduced yourself as having come with Chris, as I recall. 🙂 Unless I’m confusing you with someone else.

    I took a peek at your blog just now. Interesting stuff! I think I’ll hang around and read for a bit.
